Rose Rock Recovery Center

Treatment plan is tailored to client's individual Faith preferences, educational level, and overall needs. I was greatly blessed to be a part of this rehab program. Not only did it help me work out my core issues of why I used drugs, it taught me coping mechanisms for dealing with life on life's terms in the future. I cannot really think of any weaknesses.

Researching Altoona Rehabilitation Centers
Addiction no doubt drives the drug distribution rings and networks within state and regional areas. Altoona drug rehab centers are there to help anyone who feels trapped inside the addictive grip of alcohol and drugs. A July 2012 article in the Altoona Mirror News reports on yet another drug dealer sentenced to decades of prison time for multiple counts of selling and distributing cocaine drugs.

Once a person starts on the path to recovery, living drug-free becomes a choice regardless of how accessible drugs may be.

When to Search for Professional Treatment

The human brain regulates a delicate balance of chemicals and nerve responses on an ongoing basis. Any chemical imbalances can offset a range a processes throughout the body. Normal brain chemical processes become impaired whenever a person ingests drugs or alcohol. When this happens on a repeated basis, the brain loses its ability to manage bodily processes without the presence of drugs. Considering the brain is perhaps the most important part of the body, the sooner a person gets professional help for an addiction, the better.

Short-Term Effects of Alcohol

Alcohol works as a depressant within the brain’s chemical makeup, which means it slows down normal brain functions. As brain functions slow, a person will start to exhibit symptoms that correspond with the functions most affected in the brain. According to the Florida Institute of Technology, the short-term effects of alcohol consumption include the following:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Poor decision-making abilities
  • Lack of coordination
  • Increases in heart rate and body temperature

Enrolling Into Recovery Centers in Altoona

Enrolling in a drug treatment center may seem overwhelming at first, especially for someone going through a detoxification program. Drug detox involves cleansing the body of all traces of drugs. Depending on the type of drug used, cravings and withdrawal symptoms can be quite intense. In cases where withdrawal symptoms are severe, Altoona treatment center staff will administer medication therapies to help ease a person’s symptoms. Once the body is clear of drugs, rehabilitation can begin.

Rehabilitation typically involves individual and group counseling sessions that help a person learn how to manage everyday life without the need for drugs or alcohol.
