Inhalant Addiction Rehabilitation & Treatment Center in Alpine, Utah

An inhalant can be any substance that produces a chemical vapor. These vapors can be inhaled to achieve a psychoactive or mind-altering effect. Most often, inhalants are products easily found in the home or workplace like spray paints, markers, glues, and various cleaning products. Tweens and younger teens commonly use inhalants to get high. The high produced by inhalants lasts only a few minutes, so many people repeatedly inhale these substances over several hours to maintain their high.

Habitual use of inhalants can be dangerous and cause lifelong cognitive impairment. Alpine Recovery Lodge offers safe, effective inhalant addiction treatment as part of our substance use disorder program.

Can You Have an Inhalant Addiction?

Though not as common as other substance use disorders, repeated use of inhalants can be physically and psychologically addictive. Those who inhalants regularly to get high will suffer withdrawal symptoms like nausea, excessive sweating, muscle cramps, headaches, and chills. Severe cases of withdrawal may also include hallucinations and convulsions.

Treatment Options for Inhalant Addiction

Before beginning any substance use disorder treatment, our residents undergo a comprehensive evaluation process to help us design a highly individualized treatment plan. This evaluation addresses specific concerns about a person’s substance use disorder, their mental and physical health, and any urgent medical issues they may have. It is not uncommon for those struggling with a substance use disorder to have a co-occurring mental health disorder, like anxiety or depression. That’s why we offer a specialized dual diagnosis program to help people recover from both in tandem.

Long-lasting recovery begins with the first step. It’s time to rebuild the life you deserve in a safe, compassionate environment. Call Alpine Recovery Lodge at 801-901-8757 to get started.
