  • 1. Rehab– back to good days! Author: Dion Silva Addiction means physical and psychological dependence on psychoactive substances (for example tobacco, alcohol, heroin and other central nervous system stimulant chemicals) which, when taken in the system, cross the blood- brain barrier, temporarily altering the chemical balance of the brain. Rehab is to reverse the adverse effects of addiction. MDMA (Methylenedioxymethamphetamine) – colloquially known as ecstasy, is an entactogenic drug of the phenethy lamine and amphetamine class of drugs. It can induce euphoria, a sense of intimacy with others, and diminished anxiety and depression. People associated with the fields of psychology and cognitive therapy, have suggested MDMA may have therapeutic benefits and facilitate therapy sessions in certain individuals. Clinical trials are now testing the therapeutic potential of MDMA for post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety associated with terminal cancer. Ecstasy can be taken as a pill, tablet or capsule. Some users use the drug using a method known as "shafting" or "shelving" which involves inserting a pill or tablet into the anus. It can also be injected.
  • 2. But ecstasy addiction is also growing. Ecstasy is not physically addictive like cocaine, nicotine and heroin. Many users are, however, addicted to the emotional state they reach on the drug. Like its name implies, users fell happy, relaxed and loving while under this drug's influence. This euphoric effect can last for between three and five hours. Ecstasy use also decreases appetite and the need for sleep, which is an attractive feature for college students. This secondary effect of taking Hug can last for between 24 and 72 hours. Some feel they cannot live without it and become regular weekly users. Ecstasy addiction is seductive - many users secretly know they would have difficulty going without it in the future, but wouldn't like to admit to it in terms of addiction. Calling a regular Ecstasy user an addict usually provokes a negative reaction. That doesn't mean that a regular user of the Love Drug doesn't have a problem. Ecstasy addiction is not only hazardous but also potentially deadly. A recent study though, shows that young and healthy people, who normally do not do drugs, are dying from ecstasy addiction. Surprisingly those most likely to die from ecstasy addiction were young, healthy people who otherwise normally do not use drugs. The best drug rehab program for a habitual ecstasy addiction involves a great deal of counseling and close monitoring of the addict’s emotional needs and sense of well-being. Alcohol addiction adderall Alert! The drug by the name of Adderall has been associated to be the contributing factor to myocardial infarctions and/or sudden death in children and young adults. This drug allegedly cures ADHD, or Attention Deficient Hyperactivity Disorder. The disease is said to be a false conception and many experts believe that the symptoms described for ADHD are not symptoms at all and thus the disease itself is phony. In any case, the administration of Adderall on a regular or one-time-only basis has been known to cause heart and other physiological problems amongst children. There still haven’t been any clinical tests to prove the long-term benefit or effectiveness of Adderall—only that it is addictive to some by such a degree that they slip into Adderall abuse. Adderall is also touted as the ‘study drug’ by students. Students use it and/or abuse it to be able to stay up late to study and to focus for long periods at a time. Adderall also helps to stay up late to enjoy a party and some even claim that an intake of this drug can increase once limit of drinking. The side-effects of Adderall are, however, quite a few—dizziness, vertigo, euphoria, insomnia, restlessness, over-stimulation, tremors, depression, headaches, irritability and hallucinations. Long term effects include seizures, stroke, weight loss, dryness of mouth and unpleasant taste, diarrhea, anorexia, constipation and hypersensitivity. Some cases have been found where people reported looking at frightening hallucinations of insects or snakes crawling up their bodies, or getting the feeling of getting hit by something.
  • 3. It is to be remembered that ADHD is in essence a fraudulent disorder which is just a derivative of the Attention Deficit Disorder. The idea of ADHD was rapidly accepted by parents and teachers alike so that student performance could be improved by medication. Soon, a new disease was created to generate the requirement for a new kind of drug which is as dangerous as cocaine or heroin but it is legal. One must remember that drug addiction is far more dangerous than alcohol addiction and requires extra care. Adderall abuse is catching up rapidly as there is no one to curb its rapid spread. When a student is ‘diagnosed’ with ADHD then he/she is put on a prescription of Adderall and he school receives extra money for each child like that. Even the parents receive money from social security if their children are on treatment for ADHD. Getting paid for drug abuse. What are we going at? It is strange, strange world! Getting off alcohol is hard, staying off is harder Alcoholism is a sickness, and for most people, the cure of this disease will continue for the entire life. The treatment for the alcohol addiction is something which varies from person to person. Information on addiction treatment is very easy to find, in fact the best way to find information on addiction is internet. Various sites are present which provide information as well as different ways to help people who are addicted to the drugs as well as alcohol. An addiction to alcohol is both a bodily addiction, as well as a deep psychosomatic addiction to the effects of alcohol. Stopping drinking suddenly can cause convulsions, hallucinations and disorientation, and in severe cases, these can be life menacing. Most alcoholics will need to detox under medical management to carefully get off alcohol. Alcohol detoxification healing may involve pharmaceutical treatment, such as taking of anti angst and anti convulsion medications, and in severe cases may involve constant medical essential signs monitoring. A physical enslavement to alcohol is authoritative, and alcoholics should not attempt to detox without medical supervision and the intake of the medicines should be completed fully, it must not be left from between. Frequently, alcoholics will undergo both group psychotherapy sessions with other alcoholics, as well as confidential sessions with a psychotherapist or addiction treatment expert. The target of these sessions is to learn what triggers the yearning to drink, and to learn how to avoid these triggers and refuse to accept the unavoidable urges back towards alcohol.
  • 4. An inpatient facility is often well thought-out the better option for people with stern addictions, as the time spent away from the normal environment provides a break to learn how to cope with the triggers and social situations that show the way to drinking alcohol, in research for a definitive come back to the normal environment. There are some medications accessible that will either make drinking again very distasteful, or take the delight out of drinking, but these are treatments are not as well regarded as the group therapy and counseling program come within reach of.
