Below you will find some of the most common questions and answers related to drug abuse and drug addiction. Please feel free to contact us if there is other information you need or if we can help you in any way with the problems you, or your family, are facing.
A person abusing drugs will fail to handle and maintain their usual responsibilities, such as work, school work, care for animals, children or other dependents. You will starts to notice that their addicts home will start to be unclean and there may be no food in the kitchen. They may also start to fail to keep themselves clean and groomed. They will often not eat or sleep normally, staying up long hours into the night when others have gone to bed or become groggy and sleepy during normal waking hours. They may be irritable and antagonistic and even hostile if questioned. Their friends may change and they may become secretive about what they are doing or where their money is going and they may start to hide themselves and withdraw from the world. Personal possessions or items from the home may be missing or they may have too much money suddenly.
Addiction is a condition characterised by repeated, compulsive seeking and use of drugs, alcohol or other similar substances despite adverse social, mental and physical consequences. It is usually accompanied by psychological and physical dependence on the abused substance and the appearance of withdrawal symptoms when the addictive substance is rapidly decreased or stopped. When and individual becomes an addict they often say the drug use controls the individual rather than the individual controlling the usage. When a person loses the ability to make a rational choice about whether or not to use a drug or alcohol, he or she is addicted.
With some drugs, such as heroine or crack cocaine, addiction can occur very quickly. What that means is that after just one, two or three uses, a person can start to experience such strong cravings for the drug that they are driven to use it again even though they might know better and know the impact it will have on them and their loved ones. Other drugs can be slower in becoming addictive, these can be cannabis and alcohol.
Communities with high levels of drug or alcohol abuse usually also have increased levels of anti social behaviour, crime and violence. This can also be accompanied by higher levels of domestic violence and abuse along with child abuse and neglect. There may also be an increase in homelessness, unemployment, poverty and drug-related deaths.
When someone decides to get clean and stop their addiction they must choose a drug rehabiliation clinic carefully. An effective rehab programme, such as those offered at Ayurva, support and educate the addict to develop ways to reduce and manage their cravings. This also helps the recovering addict to enjoy a drug-free life again. Each person must also repair, through effective counselling, the life situations and decisions that led them into drug abuse initially, and they will have to rebuild a new life to replace the one that was destroyed by addiction. The Ayurva drug and alcohol rehabilitation programme, named ‘Adapts’ has components that have been proven to be successful in each of these areas.
No matter what excuses a person makes, abusing addictive drugs is both physically and pshcologically dangerous and damaging to themselves and other people around them. The best way to help a person is to get them to stop. If they promise to stop, and try, but fail, you may be saving their life if you get them into the Ayurva drug and alcohol rehabilitation programme.
Unfortunately, many addicts fail to see their own problems and can initially refuse help. This is due to the addiction taking over their lives. The addiction counsellors and drug workers at an Ayurva rehab clinic can help advise you on the best way to approach this problem and can coach you all the way through the person’s arrival at an Ayurva rehab facility.
