Drug Addiction

Filed under: Living a Healthy Lifestyle — by ReidmillerWrites @ 9:28

Ok, you are using drugs or someone you loves is always drunk or high. First you need to accept that they have a brain disease. The first use was by choice but the poisonous toxins in drugs and alcohol cause the brain to crave more. It seems illogical but drug addiction isn’t any different than cancer. When someone has cancer they meet with one or more doctors to determine the best treatment plan. Addiction treatment is the same thing.

Do not let the lack of money or insurance be an excuse. If you continue using drugs you will develop cancer, diabetes, hepatitis, liver damage and heart disease. Treatment for these illnesses is far more costly than rehab.

Don’t be upset if someone cannot just stop using. The power of the drugs is unimaginable and the cravings are powerful. There is only one answer, professional treatment.
