Addiction and HIV/AIDS are closely linked. Whether it’s through the actual method of application, such as unsafe needle use, or high-risk behavior while under the influence, such as unprotected and promiscuous sex, alcohol, and drug abuse, renders people highly vulnerable to contracting HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates that Sharing needles, syringes, or other types of drug injection equipment put people who inject drugs (PWID) at high risk for HIV and other infections. Sharing syringes is more common among younger people. To make matters even more urgent, the National Institutes of Health reports that over 162,500 people living with HIV/AIDS are unaware of their condition.
Benefits of Proper Drug Rehab for HIV/AIDs Patients
Drug and alcohol treatment facilities will not only help address the substance use associated with the diagnosis, but they will also be able to coordinate direct care for the HIV/AIDS. The tragic reality is that most active substance users living with HIV/AIDS don’t properly manage their condition, whether it’s because they’re too preoccupied with using, they lack the financial resources, or any other reason. Quality alcohol and drug treatment can help ensure that you or your loved one are getting your needed medications, attending regular physician visits getting blood tests are proper intervals, and more. They will also provide much-needed mental health treatment to deal with trauma.
