Recovery from drug abuse the compassionate way

  1. 1. Recovery from drug abuse the compassionate wayAuthor: Dion Silva Substance abuse: life threatening habit Addictions can be of varied types. Some of the addictions could be using drugs like hash, cocaine etc, some addicts use medicines which have soothing and relaxing effect on mind and body like oxycontin etc., some of the people follow the most easily accessible addictive, alcohol. Alcohol addiction begins as social habit, which eventually turns into an addiction. People suffer on personal as well as professional front due to addiction. Basically, addiction means physical and psychological dependence on substance that are psychoactive. These substances get beyond the brain and blood barrier after they are ingested into the body. Their grasp is so effective, that the person actually gets under their influence and cannot control own activities. These substances alter the chemical environment in the brain. Once the brain gets influenced by the secretion of chemical substances from the drugs, activities get automatically influenced. A person gets completely influenced by these psychoactive substances. An addiction is not always substance related, there are various types of addictions such as compulsive shopping, compulsive cleanliness etc.
  2. 2. A compulsive repetitive activity can also be tagged as addiction. It is welldescribed in one of the online encyclopedias that, in a non substantive addiction arecurring compulsion by an individual to engage in some specific activity, isobserved, despite harmful consequences, as deemed by the user himself to hisindividual health, mental state, or social life.Adderall (adderrall) is an amphetamine.Adderall abuse is one of the problemsmajorly faced by the youth. This is a drug used mainly for more concentration. Itis commonly prescribed by the physicians to those students who face problemsdue to lack of concentration. It is a study drug, many have nick- named it as“college crack”. Students who take Adderall for studying report that they canconcentrate on their books for hours at a time, and can then do better on thesubsequent exam than they would without the drug.This drug helps in increasing the concentration levels, which help the students instudies mainly.

It is mainly due to easy access to various drugs and innovative ways to mix and use those drugs. Earlier drug addiction was mostly related to men, youth and kids, but now the women have also joined this brigade. Initially their traditional domestic duties, like raising the kids, looking after household chores and so on. But the roles have been changed for women. They share bread earning duties with their husbands and face equally stressful, rather more stressful life than their partners. In addition to looking after professional life, they also have to take care of their traditional roles.
  3. 3. This way nowadays women have become more prone to various addictions.Addiction may not necessarily be in the form of substance abuse, but could besomething else like compulsive shopping or cleanliness and discipline obsession.The later types of addictions are less harmful. But the earlier one is very muchfatal, as it damages body and creates a craving for psychological substancedependency.Mental stability and reformed thinking pattern along with strong will power canhelp overcoming the later problems.

Ihave seen many parents complaining about lessconcentration levels and focus of their children. Manyof us do suffer this. The mind is truly tagged asfickle. It is very difficult to make it focus on one thingfor long time if one is not really enjoying what he/she is doing. Soon it starts wandering around andthinking about other things apart from the actual taskin hand. This affects the output.
  4. 4. If anything is performed without putting heart and soul into it, then it does notgive a complete feel to self as well as to others. For a complete looking and feelingoutput, it is required to concentrate on the job in hands. There are many wayspeople increase the effectiveness of their outcome. Some do so by taking minutestdetail into account; some do so by understanding it and interpreting it well. For allthese activities higher level of concentration is required. If the focus orconcentration is lacking, then nothing can save a dying output.People do lot of things to concentrate properly. Let’s take example of students.Their concentration levels need to be utmost, for achieving this they listen tomusic for increasing concentration level, they perform breathing exercises etc. Allthese activities help in getting more focused, but personal efforts are more in allthese acts. There are some who are unable to get their mind to focus onsomething. It is very hard for them to concentrate on one thing even aftercarrying out various focus increasing acts.They finally seek medical help for drugs which help them concentrate. One of thecommonly prescribed drugs for such stage is Adderall. This drug, if consumed inproportion, has the ability to increase focus. Thus many students andprofessionals find it a boon. But going overboard and get used to this drug causesaddiction. Adderall abuse is one of the deadly habits people follow. This is similarto alcohol addiction, which also helps in gaining focus and relaxing mind. Onceaddicted, the patients need medical help and expert support for quitting thisaddiction.
