    Inhalant Addiction Treatment

    Group TherapyThe first step in beating an addiction to inhalants is finding treatment. Treating an inhalant addiction typically involves outpatient therapy, 12-step programs, support groups or an inpatient rehabilitation program for severe addictions.

    Although rare, some people experience symptoms of withdrawal when they stop taking inhalants. For these people, inpatient rehabs offer the best chances of a successful recovery because around-the-clock care keeps users from being tempted to relapse.

    If you or someone you love is struggling to break the grip of inhalant addiction, contact a treatment specialist for help.

    Detox from Inhalants

    Detox is the first phase in treating someone with an inhalant addiction. Detoxing from inhalant abuse may take longer than other substances; chronic inhalant abusers may need several weeks to fully detox.

    Inhalants accumulate in the fatty tissue of the brain, heart, liver and muscles, which is why chronic inhalant abusers take longer to fully rid their body of the substance. The detox period allows chemicals stored in the body to be flushed out.

    During detox, people getting clean from inhalants may also experience physical and psychological symptoms of withdrawal. These withdrawal symptoms may include:

    • Anxiety
    • Depression
    • Irritability
    • Extreme fatigue
    • Insomnia
    • Hand tremors
    • Nausea
    • Vomiting
    • Brief hallucinations

    Most people who stop taking inhalants do not experience withdrawal symptoms. If they do, these symptoms usually start showing up around 24 to 48 hours after quitting. There aren’t any medications specifically designated to help alleviate the symptoms of inhalant withdrawal, but doctors may recommend supplements to help with the nausea and sleeplessness.

    Inpatient Rehabilitation for Inhalant Addiction

    An inpatient rehabilitation center can be beneficial since inhalants are legal and easy to acquire. However, going through rehabilitation for an inhalant addiction is generally not the same as the process for more common addictions.

    It is recommended for incoming patients to have a physical exam in case they have an inhalant-related health problem, such as liver or kidney abnormalities. The patient should also be assessed for any co-occurring mental conditions.

    The mental disorders that develop from abusing inhalants may require specialized treatment beyond that provided at most drug rehab facilities.

    Typical methods of treatment for addiction may be beneficial for someone struggling with an inhalant use disorder. Inpatient rehabs provide a supportive environment that helps mitigate the temptation to use.

      Ongoing Recovery

      Ongoing treatment is a crucial tool to prevent relapse. Therapy and support groups are the two main tools used by those who are addicted to inhalants.

      The psychological and social problems caused by chronic abuse of inhalants can be overcome with ongoing cognitive behavioral therapy. This kind of therapy is used to rehabilitate those with an addiction and help them understand the underlying causes of their addiction.

      Support is essential to recovery because people are rarely able to fully recover on their own.

      Support groups and family are great resources for people going through treatment. They can provide motivation to stay clean as well as a group of people with whom a newly sober person can relate.

      Those with underlying mental disorders may be prescribed medication to help them manage and find successful recovery.

      Finding Treatment for Inhalant Addiction

      Finding treatment for an inhalant addiction can be hard, as traditional addiction treatment facilities aren’t always equipped to handle the specific problems related to it. Some traditional treatment centers may even refuse treatment for someone addicted to inhalants. However, recovery is possible through specialized treatment plans, and finding treatment can be easy with the right help.

      Deciding to get well and break your addiction to inhalants could be a life-saving decision.
      If you or a loved one are struggling with an inhalant addiction, finding the right treatment center is imperative to your success. Contact an addiction specialist now, so we can help you find the treatment you need.
