7 Popular Myths about Drugs, Addiction, and Recovery

myth

Myth #1: Drug Addiction Is a Hopeless Situation

Maybe the most common myth about drug addiction is that it cannot be treated or cured. It is true that addiction is a chronic disease that will stay with a person his whole life, but like other chronic diseases, addiction can be efficientlyhandled with proper care, attention and professional help. Looking for help is the primary step to improving from a condition that is completely curable.

Myth #2:It can’t be a disease.  It’s a lack of willpower.

Diseases are frightening, so no one wants to reflecton them.  Some diseases you inherit anaffinity for, like high blood pressure or heart disease.  Some grow over time, such as asthma or diabetes. Addiction is just like that.  It is a disease.  Some people are more vulnerable to it because of heredities.  Some get it with no genetic history.  Some develop it because of lifestyle while others with a similar lifestyle never get it.

While at first drug use may be a choice, over time a drug changes the chemistry of the brain and body causing the obsessive need of the drug. Addiction is not an intentional choice but rather a side effect of drug abuse.

Myth #4: Helpful drugs are those that are legal, while harmful drugs are illegal.

It does not matter whether a drug is legal or illegal, all drugs can be abused. Even if a federally controlled drug is measured “safe”, misuse and abuse of this drug can still have damaging effects. Sometimes, legal drugs have been so harmful that treatment for drug abuse is needed.

Myth #5: Addicted people need to be punished. Once punished properly, a person will stop being addicted.

This is another one of those myths about drug addiction that just doesn’t hold up under analysis. Around 70% of people arrested for drugs will be re-incarcerated on the same charges within five years. Choosing for treatment instead of prison time would save the criminal justice system billions of assets a year.

76Myth #6: Drug Addicts Are Bad People

Another common conviction is that drugs addicts are just bad people who pick to fall into a life of deficiency. This is a biasedclassification, and it does not reveal the reality of how people grow substance abuse problems. These are people who can come from every possible background. All people who trial with drugs never consider that addiction will really happen to them.

Myth #7: Once a Drug Addict Always a Drug Addict

Another common misunderstanding is the idea that once a drug addict always a drug addict – this is similar to the belief that a leopard never changes its spots. This opinion of the drug user is not only uncooperative, but it is also clearly wrong. Even those who have fallen low into the middle of addiction can back to stability. There are many examples of persons who gave up drug abuse and completely revolved their life around.
