Understanding Drug Addiction

Many people try drugs for a variety of reasons. Some do it as a means of self-medication; others out of peer pressure or even out of boredom. Regardless of the cause of use, it does not take much time for drug use to spiral into true addiction.

The best way to understand addiction is in terms of dependence. Those who are addicted to drugs have a physical and mental reliance on them. Higher and higher doses of drugs are needed to achieve the same effect—this is called tolerance. At the same time, withdrawal from drug use can lead to a number of painful symptoms, both physical and psychological.

Not all drugs work the same way, and not all cases of addiction unfold similarly; in all of them, recovery is attainable, but only when clinical intervention is sought.

 

What are the Causes of Drug Addiction

Questions often arise about the causes of drug addiction. These questions are difficult to answer with any kind of simplicity. That is because causation is a little tricky to prove. There are actually a number of factors that can contribute to drug addiction.

These factors include biological, social, and environmental ones, present to varying degrees among different individuals. In other words, what makes one person more prone to addiction may not be the trigger in the next person.

It is also worth noting that drug addiction is often a co-occurring condition with depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders, and other mental health conditions. In many instances an individual might turn to drug use as a way to self-medicate, to soothe the symptoms of these other conditions—and this may turn into a much more serious case of addiction if the proper treatment is not sought.

Choosing the Right Drug Rehabilitation Center

Recovery from drug addiction seldom happens without the aid of a clinical rehab center. That’s what makes it so important to enroll yourself or your loved one in a center like JC’s Recovery Center. When looking for a good recovery center, make sure to select a dual diagnosis facility, which will treat for both the addiction itself but also underlying conditions, such as mental health disorders.

Something else to seek is evidence-based care. At JC’s Recovery Center, we lean heavily on proven methods of therapy and addiction treatment, including tried-and-true principles from the 12-Step Program. We also incorporate a strong element of faith into what we do, which serves an anchor for those caught in addiction’s undertow.

Overcoming Drug Addiction

What we offer, most basically, is hope. It is important to everyone at JC’s Recovery Center that those who struggle with addiction know they are not alone, and are not hopeless. Through the proper intervention, anyone can find freedom from addiction.

What that looks like specifically will vary from one person to the next. That’s because at JC’s Recovery Center we take an individualized approach. We meet with each new client and evaluate them personally, then create a recovery action plan to help address their specific needs.

Benzodiazepine

You may not be familiar with the name benzodiazepine—or benzos, for short—but you are doubtless familiar with these drugs by some of their more colloquial names. Benzos are essentially heavy-duty tranquilizers, and include Xanax and Valium. Even when taken as prescribed, benzos can become addictive—but recovery is always possible.

Cocaine

Cocaine has long been known to be both powerfully addictive and incredibly dangerous. Those who are addicted to cocaine may exhibit a number of revealing symptoms, including a greater sense of exuberance or excitability, in some cases aggressive self-confidence. Addiction to cocaine can be lethal, but JC’s Recovery Center offers treatment and healing.

Heroin

Opioid addiction is a national epidemic. While it often starts with prescription painkillers, it can easily spiral into a struggle with heroin. This street drug is one of the most addictive and life-threatening substances on the planet, but those who wrestle with heroin dependence can find solutions for ongoing recovery at JC’s Recovery Center.

Marijuana

In recent years, as marijuana has been increasingly normalized as a medical aid, misunderstandings about marijuana addiction have sharply increased. It is important to emphasize that marijuana can be addictive and dangerous. If you know someone who is addicted to marijuana, encourage them to reach out to JC’s Recovery Center.

Meth

Sometimes described as the most dangerous substance in the world, meth is easily accessible, fairly inexpensive to make, and highly addictive. Addiction to meth leads to increasingly high tolerance, and ultimately to larger and larger doses of the stuff; in the end, it can be deadly. Hope for meth addiction is available at JC’s Recovery Center.

Pain-Killers

Prescription painkillers can sometimes play an important role in mitigating the effects of a surgery or an accident; too often, though, normal painkiller use turns into addiction, and that in turn can lead to struggles with heroin and other harder drugs. Hope for recovery is attainable through proper clinical intervention.

Other Drugs

Drug addiction comes in many forms, and may include substances not on the list here. JC’s Recovery Center can provide therapy for those battling all manner of addictions, including alcoholism. The important thing is to seek clinical care as promptly as possible.
