Drug Abuse And Treatment-Help To Recover From Addiction

Drug Abuse And Treatment:

I was saddened to see how little help there was online for drug addiction.  It's as if, because drugs are illegal, there is a greater stigma associated with them than, say, alcohol, cigarettes, or eating addictions.  Yet, the problem is the same, even if aspirin is your drug of choice. Also, make sure you're doing the right things to help them by visiting Codependency-Test-Definition. In my 15-year addiction, I used coke, LSD, STP and synthetic mescaline, but my two favorites were pot and little "cross-top" pills.  The combination of booze, pot and uppers seemed to give me the sense of superiority and stamina I wanted and an uninhibited nature that got me in much trouble, but not as much as my friends.  If you're concerned that you or a loved one may be addicted to drugs, take our Signs of Drug Addiction Quiz.  Two of my druggie buddies died, one from suicide, the other in an LSD induced auto accident.  Two others were committed into psychiatric treatment because they just never came down after taking LSD.  Another went to prison for having relations with the 12-year-old daughter of another friend.  Needless to say, I'm familiar with the devastation of drugs.  For more detailed information, see these recent top-selling books on drug addiction and treatment.

Causes of Drug Addiction:

Like alcohol, the popular theory is that the addiction is an illness, that others should just understand and clean up our messes.  This is denial and enabling; it prevents people from seeking the real help they need.  The real cause is a condition everyone is born with...a low self-esteem, a sense of incompleteness that causes us to crave some sort of fulfillment. Some people try to fill the cravings with money, power, competition, education, food, drugs, religion.  Some are applauded, some condemned but all are addicts.  can give you a good understanding of addiction laid out in simple language.  If you're looking for help with your drug problem I want you to one deserves help more than you, no one is better than you.

Drug Addiction Treatments:

It's popular to "medicate" addicts, as if that did anything more than change the source of their addiction.  I hear methadone, for instance, is very popular to steal from clinics and sell on the street. Another popular route is to intervene and check people into treatment centers against their will.  I don't know what the success rate is for such treatment but I suspect it's very high until the addict is released.  If we're convincing enough, we can actually get doctors to supply our drugs, to treat pain, depression, or any one of dozens of new "diseases".  Then there's the psychological approach.  If psychologists have the answers why do they have the highest suicide rate?  The sad point is, while a few manage to pull themselves out in these treatments, millions more are convinced there is no cure for their condition and become dependant on the treatment, instead of being freed of the dependence.

The Cure:  Real Drug Addiction Help:

The Cure:  Ask yourself, "Do I want to be healed?"  What if there was a way to become completely free of addiction?  What if your craving were removed because you had become complete and fulfilled in a healthy and productive way?  What if your dependence were transferred not to another drug, or a therapist, or the government, but to a higher power.  This is what happened to 75% of the alcoholics in the early AA program.  The same 12 steps that led them to the higher power they were craving can lead you to the healing touch of God...if you want to be healed.  They were healed by God and so was I.  I haven't had an illegal drug since 1984.  In fact, I'm pretty wary of legal medicine.  I know God can help you.  If you really want it, just click to get God's help.
