Start Your New Life Today
People who are addicted to inhalants may think that they don’t need to detox or go to rehab. Because inhalant abuse is less common than other drugs and is widely known as having less dangerous repercussions, people don’t think using inhalants to get high is an issue. However, inhalants do have addictive qualities and shouldn’t be overlooked just because their effects are less potent.
If you or someone you love is addicted to inhaling household solvents, gases, or anesthetics, Freedom Detox is here to help with our personalized program.

Who Uses Inhalants?
Inhalants as a “drug” are extremely prevalent and easily accessible, as they’re typically found in most homes. They can be anything from gasoline to cleaning products, and are inhaled to produce short-lived, mind-altering effects that are similar to those of alcohol. Because they’re easy to find and use, many inhalant addicts are teenagers.
60% of first-time inhalant users are teenagers, and abuse is more common among younger teens – studies suggest that between 9.1% and 12.6% of eighth graders use inhalants.
What’s so dangerous about teenagers abusing inhalants is that over time, inhalants can cause permanent brain damage. Young peoples’ brains are still developing, which can make the damage even more severe. Fortunately, Freedom Detox offers treatment plans for teenagers that include skill-building and life coaching.
