English Speaking Addiction Treatment For Expats in Latin America
Trying to find private, self-pay, excellent English speaking addiction treatment fpr alcohol & drug rehab in North America right now can be really difficult. The United States is undergoing massive changes in the rehab ‘scene’. If you live outside of Canada or the United States of America (USA), you may not be aware of what is being called an ‘opioid epidemic’. An incredible influx of heroin, and two synthetic heroin-like drugs, fentanyl and carfentanil (or carfentanyl) are flooding the streets of cities and towns across America.
Opioid Epidemic filling US and Canadian Rehabs
Morgues are overflowing, babies are born addicted. OD’s are so commonplace that teachers, librarians and shop keepers are learning how to administer an injection of naloxone (Narcan). Narcan is a short term immediate antidote to an opioid overdose. It is not unusual for a person to be revived with Narcan more than once a day. There are changes in funding and insurance for rehabs and treatment. In addition, there is a new awareness of illegal and highly immoral practice of patient brokering. As a result, there is an increase in mistrust, abuse and chaos in the addiction treatment field in North America.
Latin American Treatment for Addiction
Perhaps you and your family have been fortunate enough to stay out of the fire of opiate addiction. If that is true, count yourself very fortunate indeed. Alcohol, marijuana, nicotine and cocaine are addictive for sure and come with their own negative consequences. However, the demographic may be very different.
The type of person who chooses out of country cash-pay treatment is usually still very high-functioning. Maybe extended family and acquaintances haven’t even noticed, yet. Perhaps the job and marriage aren’t on the line, yet. But the operative word here is ‘yet’. If you are already noticing loss of control around alcohol or other drug use, then the drug is already controlling you. There may be short times when you feel like you have it licked. You have the illusion of having it all under control. Things look good on the outside. The house, the cars, the job, the family picture. But, sad but true, this is always followed by further negative consequenes and feelings of devastation.
