Drug addiction help

Ten percent of Americans over 12 have used an illegal drug at least once in the past year. This puts them at risk of incarceration, addiction, and even death. Drug addiction costs individuals and society dearly. It doesn’t have to. Drug addiction isn’t a moral failing or an inevitability. Every person who died from drug addiction could have been saved. No matter how hopeless it feels, no matter how severe the addiction is, recovery is possible.

Our West Palm Beach drug addiction treatment center offers cutting-edge treatment that supports people in recovery to sustain a lifetime of recovery. The journey is long, and it’s not always easy, but recovery is possible. Here’s what you need to know about drug addiction.

How Drug
Harms Individuals
and Society

Drug addiction produces nearly $50 billion in health care costs each year. Almost 50,000 people die of overdoses each year. That’s a figure that’s rapidly climbing, driven in large part by an epidemic of opioid addiction. Many thousands more die due to indirect effects of drug abuse, such as cardiovascular disease, suicide, and organ failure. And that figure doesn’t even begin to account for the untold suffering abuse and addiction cause to addicts and to those who love them.

Drug addiction is linked to financial and legal difficulties, career problems, and relationship concerns. It is a factor in physical abuse, in child neglect, and in myriad other social problems. Yet many addicts refuse to accept that their addiction is a problem. This might seem strange, but addiction often goes hand in hand with denial. Addicts feel great when they’re using, and terrible when they’re not. This convinces them that the addiction isn’t a problem. And because drug use cripples their ability to think critically, it can also blind addicts to the catastrophic effects of drug addiction.

Many addicts think their addiction is under their control, that they can stop any time they want. Others are certain they won’t be the next statistic. They know how to do things right, so could never overdose. And that’s exactly what everyone who has ever overdosed thought, too. The disease of addiction lies to addicts and instructs them to lie to themselves. Left untreated, it can be fatal.

Why Drug
Addiction Happens?

Why Drug<br />
<strong>Addiction Happens?</strong>

If drug addiction is so bad, why don’t people just quit? The main problem behind drug addiction is dependency. At first, people can still function without the substance. Over time, though, the body gets used to drugs. This changes the way the body reacts to drugs. It takes a higher dose to get high, for one thing. That encourages addicts to keep using, and at much larger quantities—increasing the risk of overdose and other complications. As the addict continues using, his or her body becomes dependent on the drug. This means that the body sees drugs as equally important to food or water.

Dependency is the hallmark of addiction. Once an addict is dependent, it’s nearly impossible to stop. The body causes intense withdrawal symptoms that make detox painful. Most addicts give up before they’ve even finished detoxing.

Which Drug
Addictions Are
Most Common?

Any drug that changes the way you think and feel can become addictive. Right now, opioids are the leading cause of drug addiction. That includes legal opioids such as morphine and fentanyl, as well as illegal opioids such as heroin. This doesn’t mean that these are the most addictive drugs—just that they are currently driving the addiction and overdose rate. In the 1980s, it was crack cocaine.

So the most important factor isn’t a specific drug. It’s characteristics of the addict. Some people are more vulnerable to addiction than others. The risk factors for addiction include:

  • A history of mental health issues
  • Health concerns such as chronic pain
  • A traumatic or unstable living environment
  • A family history of addiction
  • A previous addiction

The more risk factors a person has, the more vulnerable they are. The most significant risk factor, however, is drug use. Any person who uses drugs long enough and frequently enough will become an addict.

Drug Addiction Detox: What
You Need to Know

Detox is the first step on the long path toward sobriety. During detox, the drugs leave your body. This enables you to begin thinking clearly again, and to begin healing from the damage drugs have caused. Because the body fights the removal of the drugs, however, detox is also notoriously painful. It’s common to experience mood swings, physical pain, stomach issues, a sense of hopelessness, and irresistible drug cravings.

The good news is that these symptoms go away in a few days. Once they do, your journey can become easier. But because you might forget the pain of detox, you might also forget how hard it is to get sober—causing you to use again. That’s why it’s so important to get support beyond detox.

How NAD/BR+ Can Half the
Drug Addiction

We are a West Palm Beach provider offering a treatment called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD)/brain plus (NAD/BR+). NAD is a coenzyme that supports virtually every reaction in human cells. Without it, the cells can’t function properly, and neither can the brain or body.

So why is NAD important?

This means that NAD can help the body as it navigates the challenging detox process. In so doing, it helps the brain readjust to functioning without the harmful drugs. This can help make recovery more tangible and detox more comfortable. You didn’t choose this. It’s not your fault. So why should you be punished for it?

Our program offers comprehensive treatment that helps you get through the pain of detox and addiction, so you can come out on the other side healthier and happier.
