Better Addiction Care

IV Drug Abuse



There are lots of ways for a person to take drugs. Some are ingested and some are smoked, but there are some that are injected directly into a vein. The goal is usually to ensure that the effects of the drug are experienced quickly and intensely. But there are several negative side effects that are associated with IV drug abuse. If you are injecting substances in your body and have started to realize that you have a problem, it's time to choose an effective drug rehab program.

Intravenous drug abuse is risky and has health consequences that could follow you for the rest of your life. BetterAddictionCare can help you find the right treatment program, allowing you to get help now and start healing as soon as possible. Our individualized pre-screening process can find the best treatment center for you, including locations accepting new patients right away.

There are multiple complications that go hand in hand with intravenous drug abuse, including:

  • Track marks
  • Scarring
  • Collapsed veins
  • Infections
  • Hepatitis
  • HIV
  • Endocarditis

Once you've chosen a drug rehab center that specializes in IV drug abuse, there are several customized treatment options that you might take advantage of. Many patients find success when they begin addiction counseling. Despite what you may think, you aren't the only person struggling with abuse and addiction. Counseling can be done one on one, and group sessions are often also available. Being in a group surrounded by people in a similar situation can create a safe and comfortable place to work through your experiences and learn from those of others. If you are interested in continuing to speak with a counselor even after your inpatient stay is complete, our local recovery teams can form a support system that can be used to help you stay clean and avoid going back to the same behaviors.

Don't let substance abuse wreak havoc on your body and tear your life apart. Call today and speak with one of our client care specialists. Our services are 100% confidential, and our recovery network is nationwide, making it possible to find help near you or anywhere within the United States. We can also work with your private insurance to help cover some of the cost of your treatment. We can even help to coordinate transportation to the treatment facility you have selected.
