The importance of rehab

  1. 1. The Importance of Rehab Author: Dion Silva The addiction for drugs or drug abuse is one of the greatest plagues and the saddest tragedies of modern day society. The addiction for drugs is like an all consuming monster with an insatiable hunger—it devours thousands each year. So for those who are struggling to get over their addiction issues, rehab is the best weapon they have against this evil. Previously, drugs were a thing only for the youth, but as time passed on this evil saw no discrimination and slowly seeped into all strata and age groups of the society. The problem with drug addiction is that most people, who fall prey to it, lack the necessary determination, will power or courage to combat and face their situation. A good rehabilitation program helps an addict get back on his/her feet and encourage them to try and undo their ruined lives. For years, organizations in the St. Louis drug rehab program have strived to make right the lives devastated by drug abuse.
  2. 2. Drug addiction is curable, which spells certain hope for persons in despair. The struggle is long and hard and full of temptations, intermixed with triumphs and failures; a good rehab program will take you through the hard phases and will give you all the support you need. Rehab is tedious process and has to be supervised by experienced and qualified persons from both medical and psychological fields. An effective use of these personnel is made in almost all Midwest drug rehab facilities, thus increasing the success of the process. The essence of a good rehab program is put a stop sign on the addict’s faulty lifestyle to ensure a relapse free healing process. The addict is made to live in a drug-free surrounding at taught to enjoy the other joys of life. Rehab programs also aim to deal with the origin of the addiction as work problems, strained relationships, personal issues etc. to help the addict deal with the root cause. The rehab process can be long and complex depending on the extent of the addiction. For short term addicts, giving up their addictions is easy, but it is not the case of long term drug users. After a successful rehab plan the addict is able to re-create a solid foundation and start anew, it also helps him/her face to face drugs without attempting to fall prey to it again, it paves the way for the physical and mental well-being of the addict and it also tends to heal strained or broken relationships. Addiction to pain killers like oxycontin Oxycontin addiction has been a growing social malady since its inception into modern medicine as a painkiller in the late 1990s. It was similar to morphine in it effects. Doctors prescribed it for a wide variety of pain related illnesses. The sad end of the tale is that oxycontin is an addictive drug. The reason for this addictive nature is in its side effects. Other than reducing the pain in patients, it also created feelings of well being, ecstasy, and euphoria, leading its temporary users to become permanent addicts. The use of this medicine has become so widespread that it has almost become an off- the-counter medicine. Growing numbers of people are using this with no reason at all. Youngsters are simply going to doctors for non-existent pain problems and are getting oxycontin as the pain reliever. Repeated use of this medicine has made lots of healthy individuals to become oxycontin addicts. This rising rate in addiction can be seen as akin to any cocaine or heroine addiction, and therefore the propagation of the need for oxycontin rehab and rehab for oxycontin centers.
  3. 3. Just like any other drug addiction case, oxycontin rehab and rehab for oxycontin have to go through the usual rehabilitation procedures. The reason for the addiction might not always be just preliminary use of the medicine. It might be rooted in the day to day life of each individual oxycontin addict. So the methods of de-addiction will have to be adapted to the living conditions of each individual. The increasing impact of oxycontin addiction has already raised hue and cry in various departments of world governments. The open sale of this drug without proper prescription by authorized medical practitioners has been declared illegal. The police departments have been alerted about yet another medicine gone loose. Many oxycontin rehab and rehab for oxycontin centers have come up today due to the growing public demand to be free from the clutches of this addictive drug. So, just in case you are also prescribed this medicine for some relief from pain, please use it with caution. If possible, please remind your doctor of the side effects it may cause and get a different harmless medicine prescribed for your pain. Community awareness of the problems that oxycontin may cause is also of prime importance. The oxycontin rehab and rehab for oxycontin centers have come up with such innovative programs to lead people away from overdoses of oxycontin which might be even fatal if unchecked. Do you think alcohol and drugs are fun Well, reality check, drugs are like termites—they hollow you inside out. If you are considering taking drugs in any form then stop and think about the reason for your impulse. Some of the first-time drug users or alcohol drinkers are teens. They are probably ‘giving-it-a-try’ either to rebel against parents or simply feel grown-up. It is of the teenage opinion that taking drugs and drinking liquor is cool and ‘in’. Other views are also present like they help one to cope with excessive pressure and stress and help one focus. Drug and alcohol abuse also occur during parties and clubs. Truth is, if this be the case what do you say to someone on drugs or alcohol? One might try to encourage them towards a more sober living. Addicts must be encouraged to look for challenges, like trekking, skiing, hiking, rock climbing etc. One can also try to make new friends by joining teams or clubs. If you feel anxious or stressed—read a book, listen to some music or simply go hang out with your friends. The foremost and the most important step of avoiding drugs and alcohol is learning to say the word “NO”. Your peers or colleagues or friends may offer you alcohol or drugs—learn to say ‘no’, be polite yet firm about it. It may be hard at first, but be determined and resolved. Avoid situations where you might be offered something that might trigger your addiction craving.
  4. 4. The important thing for the other person is to remember what to say to an alcoholic or a drug addict. Remember to talk to addicts who want to change. Ask them to be determined and focused about it. Tell them to avoid situations which demand him/her to fall prey to the addiction again and tell them that it is their life and they have a right to refuse if someone pressures them to take drugs or alcohol. Advise them by saying that there is only one mind, body and soul given to each of us and that we should not waste it on addictions and burn it away—after all we should at least think about the people who love us and care about us.
