Icarus Behavioral Health Provides Information on Substance Abuse Treatment in New Mexico

Albuquerque, New Mexico -

Icarus Behavioral Health, a treatment facility offering drug and alcohol rehab in Albuquerque, NM, has recently released a trio of related resources for people who are looking for addiction treatment in New Mexico. The first article takes a look at the proximity and suitability of their facilities for Moriarty NM drug rehabs, while the second article takes a look at the stigma resulting from having a “meth face” and how the appearance of people who have been using meth for a long time can discourage them from seeking treatment. In the third article, they examine the connection between substance and social isolation.

In their article about rehab treatment services for residents of Moriarty, the team at Icarus wants to announce that their residential and outpatient drug rehab is now more accessible to the residents of this small and tight-knit community. People struggling with addiction frequently suffer in silence, not realizing that rehab treatment is available for them. Icarus wants this to change and in compliance with its mission is now accepting various forms of Medicaid in New Mexico, including Centennial Care, for substance abuse treatment services. Their inpatient substance abuse treatment programs usually include medical supervision; detox; group therapy sessions; individual counseling; treatment for co-occurring disorders; medication management; mutual support groups like 12-step groups; aftercare services; and sober living facilities.

The second article looks at the “faces of meth,” which is a typical side effect of using methamphetamine for a long time. First of all, there is a thinning of the face and also of the body overall. And there may be noticeable planes on the cheekbones and the jawline will stand out more. And the most stunning characteristic of the meth face is the development of deep acne that results in scarring over time. This may be due to the lack of skincare while the person is struggling with meth addiction. In addition, meth users have a higher threshold for pain and will usually pick on the acne, not realizing that they are causing injury to their facial skin. This results in deep scarring and open sores on the face. The solution to the meth face is to stop using meth but unfortunately, the affected individual often feels shame and resentment, and this may prevent them from seeking treatment. Icarus seeks to get rid of that obstacle and encourage meth users to seek treatment.

And finally, the third article takes a look at the relationship between social isolation and substance abuse. This affects so many New Mexicans who reside in rural areas and are dependent on drugs and alcohol. Icarus seeks to remove the shame and stigma that people struggling with an addiction are often suffering from and help encourage anyone who is in such circumstances to reach out for help so that they may begin their journey towards recovery.
