Addiction is becoming an increasingly prevalent problem in society with many individuals suffering from addiction to harmful substances such as drugs and alcohol which can do serious damage to the body when abused.
The topic of addiction is often a difficult one with many being too ashamed to talk about it, this is why many don’t seek any help when its needed leading to increased mental health issues and damaging effects on the body.
If you or anyone you know is experiencing addictive behaviours then it’s important to act fast and seek help before the problem spirals out of control.
Is Addiction A Disease?
Yes, many health organisations recognise addiction as a disease including the National Institute on Drug Abuse who describes addiction as a chronic and relapsing brain disease which takes away all control on drug use no matter what negative effects incur.
This description basically describes how addiction takes over the brain and commands it to partake in compulsive behaviour without any control from the user, meaning that an addict simply has no choice when addicted to a substance.
Can Addiction Be Treated?
Addiction can be efficiently treated through the use of rehabilitation and detoxification programmes like the ones available through Action Rehab. This type of treatment is the most commonly used and has shown to be the most effective form of treatment for addiction.
The treatment will typically take place in a rehab clinic where you will be expected to stay throughout the duration of your programme, it is during your programme that you will go through certain treatment techniques such as a detox which is designed to flush all of the harmful substance out of your system along with different therapy and counselling sessions to help you take control of your mind.
