Seniors Or Older Adults in Idaho

Today, older adults in Idaho are using illicit drugs, being arrested for drug-related charges and dying from drug overdose deaths at rates higher than ever before. The baby boomer generation - Americans born between 1946 and 1964 - continues to age. As a whole, they haven't changed their attitudes or opinions on alcohol or other drugs.

Senior citizens are the age group most likely to receive long-term prescriptions or to consume multiple medications. They're the most likely to suffer from cognitive decline and memory loss, which are major risk factors for accidental prescription drug abuse.

They also take more over-the-counter medications than other age groups, increasing the risks of unintended side effects from mixing medications with alcohol or other drugs. The cumulative effect is a massive number of older Americans requiring education about substance abuse, treatment for addiction and support systems for recovery.

Medical Detox as an Effective Strategy

Detox is the safe removal of drugs and alcohol from an individual who is dependent on the substance and who may suffer both drug cravings and potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms when the substances are removed. Medical detox may use medications to accomplish this process is an inpatient or outpatient setting, depending on individual circumstances.

Health professionals treating older adults in medical detox need to be aware of all the medications a person may be taking to manage other health concerns in order to avoid any negative interactions. Medical conditions and mental health concerns also need to be evaluated before dispensing medications during detox, and some of the medications used in other demographics may not be recommended for this age group.

For example, SAMHSA reports that while benzodiazepines are commonly used to stabilize individuals during medical detox from psychoactive prescription drugs, these drugs in long-acting or high-dose formulations may build up in an older person's body, creating lasting cognitive or toxic effects. Individuals who are over 65 and battling addiction may therefore be best suited to a treatment program that understands the particular complications that may face the elderly population.

Residential or Outpatient Treatment for the Addicted Elderly

Both residential and outpatient treatment models usually have similar components, such as therapy, group and individual counseling, 12-Step and mutual support group meetings, educational opportunities, life skills training workshops, and holistic treatment methods. With outpatient treatment models, individuals attend sessions or meetings during the day and return to their residences at night, while residential treatment means individuals will stay on site at a specialized substance abuse treatment facility, and receive care and supervision around the clock.

Since life circumstances may be different for a senior citizen than a younger person, the particular components of treatment may need to be age-specific. Many programs may separate similar populations into groups during therapy, counseling, life skills training, education, and support group meetings.

When a comorbid mental illness is also present, integrated treatment models that use teams of medical and mental health professionals to treat both disorders simultaneously may be important. With an older individual who may also have a medical or mental health condition and who may be taking multiple medications, it may be even more essential for all medical professionals to be on the same page and working together.

Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing in Rehab

Behavioral therapy is often used during substance abuse and addiction treatment, as it helps individuals to find and recognize the connections between potential triggers, negative thoughts, and subsequent actions. Emotional, social, or physical triggers may be unique to an older adult and may center on certain life events or circumstances that a younger person may not relate to.

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is another therapy method that helps people to recognize that change is necessary while promoting acceptance in a nonthreatening and non-confrontational manner. Stigmas surrounding age and addiction may need to be absolved in order to ensure that treatment needs are fully met.
