Drug Addiction Is More Dangerous Than Terrorism

Drug

Terrorism is nothing new and has been around from quite some time. Different terror groups have been operating in various parts of the globe every day. Their sole motto is nothing but to destroy the world. Suicide bombers with bombed vests reach the targeted place and blew themselves up injuring and killing hundreds and thousands of people around.

Though such heinous acts are done by cold-blooded people however, this can be very well compared with the drug addiction of modern age. In fact, it can be considered as more dangerous than terrorism for it is an act that does not kill the person on the spot but kills slowly and steadily.

 

People who are addicted continuously keep on pumping harmful substances into their body knowing the fact that they are going to prove fatal one or the other day. The way terrorists do not get a sigh of relief without killing innocent people, addicts do not feel completed without injecting or consuming the substance. Drugs become their way of life and they are not in a state to live without such substances even for a single day.

Certainly there are umpteen severe consequences of drug addiction however; the worst of all is the loss of life or life without a meaning. The person does not know, who he is, what he is in the world for, what has he been doing so far and much more. So, he is life is nothing but a meaningless life, completely dependent on that particular substance.

Since it is not an easy job to buy drugs, one has to spend a good sum of money in order to get them. So, besides ruining the life, one also spends money uselessly on such harmful substances. It is not only the loss of the drug addict but the loss of family as well.

So, the way serious actions are being taken again the terrorists, the same should be done against drug sellers and drug addicts as well. As this habit keeps on spreading from one individual to the other, it is important that a timely action be taken immediately to curb the situation.

Nowadays, drug rehab centers are also established world-wide. These centers are especially constructed for people who want to get out of the cage of addiction. As it is nearly difficult to get rid of this habit on your own, rehab centers have specialists and of course, great techniques to make an individual’s life better than ever. The way these heinous crimes degrade the world, drug addicts spoil their life with substances such as alcohol, heroin, cocaine and much more.

Most of the rehab centers have their presence online, if you wish to get out of the glitch and live a happy life; you can trawl the web and look for some repute center in your region. Since this issue is multiplying just like terror groups across the world, a lot of drug rehab specialists and centers are established worldwide.

 

So, find one today and step forward to live a beautiful life ahead!

Fighting The Evil of Addiction

managing_recovery_from_addiction_takes_effort

Addiction is the greatest challenge our community is facing now a days. This term “addiction” carries stigma and hinders the acceptance among the society. So the world health organization recommends the term “Substance Use Disorder”. We are facing this menace worldwide and on a national level. The situation however is grimmer at our very own Punjab. As per a recent study by GNDU almost 73% of Punjabi youth are involved in drug use. To tackle this menace we have to pull our socks and stick to basic principle of educating the masses and then encouraging them to come forward for treatment.

 

Our Punjab govt. Recognized de-addiction Centre at cheema medical complex, phase 4, Mohali. We try to narrow the treatment gap with our very innovative tri-dimensional approach. First and foremost is the awareness of the masses. To achieve this daunting task we have multi personnel team comprising of an educator, psychologist and a community activist. This team visits the rural areas of Punjab on almost every working day and they hold their canopies and educate the youth and others regarding this problem. They also distribute pamphlets and other reading materials for this purpose and encourage the sufferers to come forward for treatment.

 

Then treatment approach of our tem also differs significantly from other de-addiction centres in Punjab. In our Centre we cover the other two dimension of treatment which includes Mind and Body. The medical treatment involves administration of medicines for the purpose of controlling the withdrawal symptoms. There after the other dimensions take care of the psychological aspects. The psychological treatment involves relaxation training, Motivation enhancement therapies and relapse prevention strategies.

To understand it better one has to know what it is and how addiction is itself a medical illness. Addiction is a biological disease and it is certainly not a choice as many would suggest. Now being a disease it has symptoms like craving for substance (alcohol, opium, tobacco etc.), withdrawal symptoms in absence of substance intake. Along with this there are many other ill effects of this disease such as social isolation, marital & social dysfunction and involvement in illegal activities such as thefts, drug peddling etc. Fortunately its medical treatment is available and is successful in majority of cases.

 

First time use of various substances like alcohol, tobacco, cannabis etc. is very common among adolescents and young adults. This results from a variety of factors like peer influences, familial & social factors. But who will develop addiction or dependence as we doctors call it?

 

Well there is no single answer to it, there is role of genetics and hereditary, then there are personal, social and environmental influences. The continued long term use of substances produces changes in our brain and nerves and thus body becomes used to it.  So when a patient stops taking substances even for a day or two it leads to withdrawal symptoms such as decreased sleep, craving, anxiety, tremors in hands and many others. These symptoms and associated craving maintains the substance use.

To treat such patients we have number of medicines for controlling withdrawal symptoms and in combination with counseling the approach can lead to reversal of changes in brain and nerves. For majority of substances the acute withdrawal period lasts for eleven to fifteen days and can be easily managed with treatment. Thereafter depending on case, we have multiple options which can either decrease the craving for substances or can reduce the reinforcing effects of substances.

 

For those individuals who have tried medical treatment on multiple occasions but have failed, can also be managed with options of long term treatment with medicines and counseling. To sum up, addiction is a form of medical disease which can be treated and suffering individual needs to be socially supported and encouraged to take the treatment.
