addiction treatment for seniors

It is easy to believe that young people are the only ones in need of drug and alcohol rehab. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth. There are just as many seniors, age 65 or older, who require the help of a professional treatment facility.

Typically, those in the senior citizen age bracket have an addiction to alcohol and/or prescription drugs. In many cases, this is a problem that stems back to their younger years. There are also seniors who pick up this addiction later in life.

What matters most is finding a senior rehab center with experience treating older patients.

What to look for in a Senior Rehab Center

As you can imagine, rehab programs for seniors are not structured the same as those for the younger generation. Instead, these are developed to address the specific issues related to addiction in elderly patients.

While many seniors are enjoying life after retirement, some have turned to bad habits.

No matter if you are seeking a senior citizen rehabilitation center for yourself or for a loved one, you should focus on the following details:

  • Staff with experience working with the senior population
  • Programs that are designed specifically for older patients
  • Targeted knowledge to ensure that the proper treatment plan is in place from the beginning
  • Although many people struggle to think of their parents or grandparents as addicts, denying an addiction is only going to make things worse.

When compared to other age groups, it is a known fact that the senior population often times suffers more from psychiatric issues as well as pain and insomnia. Unfortunately, many people avoid seeking professional medical advice. Instead, they turn to alcohol or prescription drugs to ease the pain for the time being.

Additionally, those who have retired from the work force no longer have nearly as many obligations. For this reason, these people often times let their guard down and begin to drink more heavily.
