Substance Abuse Treatment
Substance abuse affects millions of people worldwide. Substance abuse is defined as dependence on an addictive substance – particularly drugs and alcohol.
The first time someone chooses to try drugs or alcohol it is typically born out of curiosity or peer pressure. There are several factors that can contribute to a person becoming an addict after trying drugs. The term drugs (from this point forward) will be used as all-inclusive to include alcohol. Alcohol is a drug.
What makes a person susceptible to developing a drug problem?
Biological Influences – we know today that genetics play a part in addiction. If someone in your family has a substance abuse problem – the chances of developing an addiction are increased.
Environmental Factors – People who grow up in an environment where drug use was prevalent have a greater chance of becoming an addict. It can appear that using drugs is a “normal” behavior. Also, people who suffer traumatic events can also turn to drugs as a way to cope.
Brain Functions – We also know that addiction is a brain disease. When drugs enter into the bodily system, they begin to change the way a person thinks. Drugs change the structure of the brain as well as how the brain works.
Physical Dependence – Many people who are in accidents or have an illness get physically dependent on the drugs prescribed. This is especially true when highly addictive medicine is being used. Opiates and benzodiazepines are common medicines that are easily turned into addictions.
If you someone you love is suffering from drug addiction, there is help available. Her House Rehab specializes in treating women exclusively that have a drug problem.
We believe this is to be very important to convey – addiction is not solved in isolation. Will power alone is not sufficient enough to cure addiction. Addiction is a disease. You did not cause it, you cannot control it, and you cannot cure it by yourself.
If you have an addiction, we urge you to not place judgment or shame on yourself. If someone you love is suffering from an addiction, we also urge you to not judge or ridicule them.
We know that there is a large amount of fear for the addict and the loved ones of addicts. Everyone is affected by addiction. At Her House Rehab, we are here to help and erase those fears. Treatment is essential for addicts to begin the process of true recovery from drug addiction.
