Elderly Treatment

When an elderly loved one is facing an addiction, it can often go untreated for a very long time. This can be due to no one being around to notice it, or it can be because people have a hesitation to interfere with the person’s life, thinking they have made it through a lot in their lives and deserve to be left alone. By the time an elderly person is ready for rehab, it can already be something that is so far beyond control that it would be unsafe for the elderly person to try and stop using on their own. That is where we can help.

``In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.`` - Albert Einstein

Treating Elderly Addiction Takes Finesse

Sometimes elderly addiction stems from losing those around the person and them wanting to medicate their own loneliness and depression, while others times an addiction is purely an accident because the person took too much medication, forgetting previous doses. Either one of these cases could be what happened to your loved one, or it could be something completely different. Seeking the reason for the addiction is only one portion of the treatment process.

Elderly patients need to be treated differently than those addicts who are young adults or teenagers. They need to have a different approach to see the damage their addiction is doing, because if they are approached in the wrong way, it could lead someone to think they are already nearing the end of their life and there is no reason to stop. That could not be further from the truth.

``How lovely to think that no one need wait a moment, we can start now, start slowly changing the world! How lovely that everyone, great and small, can make their contribution toward introducing justice straightaway... And you can always, always give something, even if it is only kindness!`` - Anne Frank

Changes in the Body and Mind When Getting Over an Addiction

The extent of the possible changes is going to vary by person, but everyone is going to be able to benefit from stopping using or drinking to some extent. These are just a few of the parts of the body that start to rebound after ceasing use of a drug or alcohol:

  • The heart starts to try and regulate itself more normally
  • The lungs try and expand to allow more oxygen to permeate the body
  • The liver and kidneys try and flush as much of the drug’s toxins out of your body as they can
  • Your brain starts to try and come out of the haze that comes with being high
``Man is what he believes.`` - Anton Chekhov

The Benefits of Seeking Elderly Addiction Treatment

Once an addiction is over, a new chapter of your life can begin. You no longer have to worry about how to pay for your addiction, going out and having someone see you not quite feeling like yourself, your family worrying about you being alone, or be fearful of seeing your doctor. You can connect with your loved ones again, and you can be proud of living life on your own terms. Addiction is a cruel master, but you do not have to spend the rest of your life at the end of those chains.
