Transcript of Drug ABUSE

Here are some debunked myths about relieving drug addiction that you should know about before treatment. Drug abuse sometimes cannot be stopped by willpower alone, because of how the brain works while addicted. Addiction and abuse can be stopped under the right circumstances. Addicts can also quit any time they want, they don't have to hit rock bottom.
You actually can force treatment onto an addict, and a treatment can work after one has already failed. Beating abuse or addiction is much easier with support behind you, such as friends, family, therapists, counselors, or recovered addicts. If you are trying to help an abuser, speak up, don't put your needs behind you to help and don't blame yourself. If you are a parent to a drug abuser, you can set certain consequences, monitor his activity and search for hidden drugs, encourage other healthy activities, and get help. Your child may rebel against you, but listen to coaches, teachers, friends, or relatives.
Lastly, you can contact a local health center. There are many of these, some online and most in the real world.

Drug Abuse can affect all 3 parts of the health triangle. Drugs can make you physically sick, can affect your mental perception, and shatter your relationships with friends and even family.
