Facts

  • Street terms for opiates are Smack Horse, Brown sugar Junk, Black Tar Dope, School boy White stuff, Harry Cube, Mud Big H, and Skag Morf.
  • Just like heroin, many individuals who become hooked on Vicodin have to figure out how to take the drug every day just to feel normal.
  • Studies indicate that elevated levels of serum C-reactive protein (CRP), a protein associated with inflammation, in cocaine abusers is associated with endothelial abnormalities and coronary artery calcification; factors known to contribute to heart disease.
  • Opiate addicted individuals need higher and higher amounts of opiates in order to prevent withdrawal symptoms and to maintain their feelings of euphoria.

Pittsburgh - Residential Short-Term Rehab (30 Days or Less)

A residential short-term treatment (30 days or less) program offers care 24 hours a day 7 days a week for an average of 30 days (or less) depending on the treatment center. The individuals live at the rehab facility and are ensured a completely alcohol and drug-free environment during their recovery process. While in treatment they deal with their complications with drug and/or alcohol addiction while mastering how to go about their life without turning to substances to remedy their concerns. When the person has finished their residential short-term treatment, they generally continue their recovery process by heading into outpatient treatment, attending meetings, therapy or counseling. Intensely addicted persons who have a long history of substance abuse will benefit from living at a sober living home after they finish rehab. This will help them solidify their new found sobriety and give them strength and support.
