It’s also effective to travel to another city or state for treatment. Traveling for treatment allows you to enroll at a live-in facility where you get away from environments, people and conditions that may have contributed to your substance use. There is also an aspect of anonymity to traveling for treatment. You will less likely see someone you know at or around a treatment facility if you travel for treatment.
The answer to this varies from person to person. There are many factors to consider, including type of substance one uses, the amount or dosage of the substance and the frequency of use. Meth and crack cocaine are extremely addictive and people can get hooked almost immediately. Prescription drugs and alcohol may take a little bit longer. Additional factors that impact the time it takes to become addicted are a person’s genetic history, age, gender, environment, sensitivity to a substance and mental health state. People react differently to substances. Someone can use many times without developing an addition, and another person can become addicted after the first or second use.
If someone has a parent who was addicted to a substance, for example, alcohol, their children may have a predisposition to be addicted to it as well. So, the children may actually become addicted to alcohol faster than the parents did, because a component of the addiction is passed down through the genes.
As addiction is a behavioral disease and a disease of the brain, some people are more mentally predisposed to addiction than others.
