Drugs and alcohol have a distinct way of bringing addiction wherever they are used. One cannot take the euphoric aspects of abusing drugs and alcohol, and not addressing the addictive properties that are also within them.
While some people may think that this constant returning to using drugs and alcohol are a mere choice, there are many elements that are at play.
When someone uses any mind-altering substance that also induces a euphoric state, there is a rewiring that occurs within the brain. This restructuring forces the brain to view a drug or alcohol as an absolute necessity in life (as much as and surpassing food, water, reproduction, shelter and safety).
This rewiring also has a way of overriding the logical regions of the brain (such as the pre-frontal cortex) and may force the mid brain and hind brain to act on administering the substance against the logical judgement of the frontal areas of the mind.
Some individuals may view addiction as a choice that is made, but from a scientific perspective, it is considered to be a disease that directly afflicts the ability to make choices. If you or someone you know is afflicted with the disease of addiction, there is help available if the person pursuing recovery is willing to change.
Consider traveling for treatment in order to get help with the various afflictions that perpetuate your addiction. Traveling can remove you from the situation that developed your addiction. People who leave their homes it may seem rough, but it is necessary for them to start a new road built from new experiences.

It’s strongly suggested that the people who are coordinating the intervention seek out the help of a professional interventionist to ensure that the process goes smoothly. A professional interventionist not only helps with communication, but they also help provide a neutral position in the group, which could prove huge.
