An addict can remain in denial about his/ her addiction. They may try to hide it, but once it goes beyond their control, the whole world knows about it. It is up to the families to offer support and required love to get back to normal and sober life. Many individuals face this problem all by themselves, as they do not share it with their family. Their rate of recovery is less, as their addiction remains a secret and may be more dangerous than that, which is detected or shared earlier. There are ways how the families can help their loved one to get out of the addiction.

  1. 1. Addiction Eating Disorder Treatment for Women Author: Dion Silva Addiction can ruin a life, but compassionate words can heal An addict can remain in denial about his/ her addiction. They may try to hide it, but once it goes beyond their control, the whole world knows about it. It is up to the families to offer support and required love to get back to normal and sober life. Many individuals face this problem all by themselves, as they do not share it with their family. Their rate of recovery is less, as their addiction remains a secret and may be more dangerous than that, which is detected or shared earlier. There are ways how the families can help their loved one to get out of the addiction. An addiction cannot be accidental, it is a deliberate process carried out by the individual consciously. But there could be many factors which might lead to
  2. 2. addiction apart from the willingness of the individual. Those factors are identified by the medical practitioners in the due course of discussion with the addict. Once the factors are identified, then a plan of action is drawn by studying the case closely. Eventually a personalized treatment is decided. This is how normally the rehabs work. Due to their personalized approach they have higher success rate. After the addiction is acknowledged, the family members or friends try to locate a good rehab which suit to their needs. They may visit various sites which might focus on how to help a loved one to find a good rehab or cope with the set back caused due to addiction. These web sites also help in addressing the issues like how to help an addict to overcome or deal with his addiction. The most basic thing all the web sites state is that, the families should never blame the addict for following such dangerous habits. It may have adverse effect on the addict. Circumstances might be the culprit in directing someone to addiction. The families or the friends need to be educated in dealing this kind of situation. Many web sites have extensive information and many useful incidents related to real life, which might be useful for them. Besides talking to them using positive words, the families can also support them through their recovery process by visiting them regularly at rehab, making them feel wanted in the house by telling them how much they are missed each time. Such small gestures can work wonders and result a good and speedy recovery. Substance abuse: a killing machine! Methamphetamine is a drug usually known as Meth, by the substance abusers. One of the early inventions shows that it was first synthesized by a Japanese chemist in the year 1893. This drug is used for the treatment of narcolepsy. It was commonly used during the II World War. It was used by the axis and allied forces. This drug was commonly used and distributed amongst the top army officials to basic grade army men. Methamphetamine addiction can be a serious problem due to its psycho-stimulant properties. This drug causes euphoria, anxiety, aggression, self confidence etc. physically it has many adverse effects such as memory loss, aggression, psychotic behavior, heart damage, malnutrition, and severe dental problems to name a few. Initially only limited to Hawaii and western parts of the country, methamphetamine abuse continuously spread towards east and it affected the rural and urban areas increasingly. According to one national survey, approximately 10 million people
  3. 3. in the United States have tried methamphetamine at least once in their lifetime. This drug can be taken intravenously or smoked. Marijuana addiction is another type of addiction which is commonly found among any age. This drug has special properties. Marijuana releases serotonin which is a chemical in the brain that triggers a feeling of pleasure. The most common method for using this drug is to place the dried leaves, stems, and flowers of this plant onto rolling paper and make it into a cigarette, to be smoked. It can also be smoked in a water pipe or other metal or glass pipe. This drug can also be put in food products or be mixed with coffee or tea.When someone smokes Marijuana regularly the brain gets used to higher amounts of serotonin production than normal , so when these addicts try to quit smoking this drug, then the production drops , followed by which they experience a mild mental withdrawal from the dependence on the previously increased levels of serotonin and the pleasure it brought along with. When one gets used to the high, it becomes very difficult to refrain oneself from smoking it. The addicts try to find new ways to justify their addiction. Marijuana drug rehag follows a holistic treatment for recovery separately for every individual. Any type of addiction is characterized as killing if not detected or treated at earliest. It can be very fatal and take life! Addiction is similar to slow poisoning There are various types of substances which are used for a high. Among few are Marijuana, Grass, and Extacy etc. Various drugs have different functions. But all of them hit the mental ability of a person. Some of them are also prescribed drugs. But these are to be taken in a suggested measure.Abusing any substance can lead to very dangerous and life threatening incidents. Extacy is a drug that can cause mental addiction and we treat many young men and women for whom it is a primary drug of choice. Extacy is potentially fatal every time it is used and is extremely dangerous if mixed with other drugs or alcohol.
  4. 4. This is a common name for MDMA, it is also a synthetic, psychoactive drug which is chemically similar to the stimulant meth and the hallucinogen mescaline. It's a neurotoxin drug with many negative effects. This drug is taken orally in tablet form the majority of time. Occasionally, it is "snorted" or taken nasally, and in extremely rare cases, young adults do smoke or even take this drug intravenously. Extacy addiction has various side effects including increases in heart rate and blood pressure, a special risk for people with circulatory problems or heart disease, and other symptoms such as muscle tension, involuntary teeth clenching, nausea, blurred vision, faintness, and chills or sweating. Psychological effects can include confusion, sleep problems, drug craving, and severe anxiety. Erratic mood swings and depression can lead to isolation from friends and family. Another common effect of ecstasy use is decreased performance on the job or in school. All this leads to an unstable state of mind and body. The rehabs offer a complete recovery treatment for this addiction. There are two types of treatments offered one of which is a residential treatment, 30- day treatment or various other programs, where the patients are supposed to live in the rehabs for effective results. The other form of treatment is an out- patient treatment. The Out- patient rehab offers this treatment for those who cannot leave their regular life or professional commitments to get admitted into the rehabs or do not wish to disappear from the scene to make it more obvious. Still wish to live a sober life. For such individuals these rehabs offer a 12 step programs. It is also equally effective, but the patient has to tackle the lures of drugs which keep surrounding him/ her in their normal life. If the patient is able to stay away from those lures then he/ she can easily overcome the addiction, because the mind is out of addiction first.
