What Causes People to Overdose from Drugs and Alcohol?
One way that isn't talked about much of how people overdose and die from drugs or alcohol is when they go through detox, remove the toxins from their systems and then use again. Often they will go back to the same dosage they used before detoxing. Their bodies can't handle that higher level of toxicity and they often overdose and die.
People develop tolerances for drugs and alcohol over time. However, there is a breaking point for everyone. Everyone has a point where just a little bit more of a toxic substance can damage their brain and create seizures or damage other bodily organs, that can lead to more severe problems. For people using benzos or alcohol, the withdrawals can be extremely dangerous and even deadly, so it's highly recommended to enter a detox facility if you are abusing alcohol and benzos over prolong times.
Everyone has a different sensitivity to drugs and alcohol, and this can affect them differently. A dosage that is okay for one person may cause overdose in another. This often happens with cocaine, heroin, meth and stronger illicit drugs. People can become addicted to them on almost an instant or first-time-use basis.
If you're considering a treatment center, think about traveling for treatment. When you travel for treatment, you get away from toxic environments and people who may be contributing to your substance abuse.
Another benefit of traveling for treatment is the anonymity. You will be less likely to encounter people you know when you go to a treatment center in another city or state. Traveling for treatment also provides the opportunity to reflect on your recovery and treatment plan.
