Drug Abuse

Drug abuse is an ever increasing trend here in the United States. The effects hit home to millions of abusers and their families everyday. Many people mistakenly view abuse as strictly a social problem and they view those who take drugs as weak. They truly believe that if the addict was sincerely willing to change that they would be able to quit using the drugs. It is a simple fact that many people underestimate the complexity of addiction and they do not understand that it is a disease. Addiction has a physical impact on the brain and its function and stopping the addiction is not just simply a matter of willpower.

Seeking Treatment for Substance Abuse

The abuse of drugs change the way neurons in the brain function. While the initial decision to try drugs is voluntary, as drug use continues over time, the physical changes within the brain make the decision involuntary as the brain believes the drug is needed to function normally. The person’s self-control and ability to make sound decisions are hindered by the intense cravings for the drug. Addiction is a chronic disease that is treatable with a combination of detoxification and counseling programs. Some addictions can be treated in an outpatient facility, while others require more intensive treatment in a residential facility. These are combined with behavioral, group, and individual therapies to help the person learn how to cope with the problems left by addiction and to provide tools to help prevent relapse such as how to avoid triggers.
