IIowa City is a home away from home. It has 42 parks and surrounded by hills as far as the eye can see, lush thick woodlands that is scattered around the city, and tall grasses that you can simply get lost in. If you’re looking for a bit of exercise and fresh air, try our hiking, biking and walking trails. There is network that weaves around the city and offers a bit of privacy for those who enjoy a bit of peace and quiet. You may be someone who enjoys to take life at a slower pace, someone who likes to sit back and smell the roses, then there are many picnic sites you can visit that overlooks the prairie reserves and offers a unique look into the wildlife and the surrounding geography. Outdoor activities may not really be your thing, so try the multiple performing arts venues that feature anything coming off of Broadway to new works created by playwrights who are making their debut; who knows, you may witness the beginning of the next Shakespeare.
The answer to this is debatable depending on who you ask. It is a choice to use whenever someone “chooses” to use a substance. However, addiction itself may or may not be a choice. Many people are predisposed to addiction as a mental and behavioral disorder, while some are predisposed to it through genetics. Parents who are addicts often pass down addiction to their children through their genes.
Even when people aren’t predisposed to it by genetics, they can still become addiction through repeated use of substances. One of the main complications with addiction is that once a person becomes addicted, their brain is actually re-wired, reprogrammed ina way, to “make” the person continue their addiction. Their brain programming puts substance abuse above everything else in priority, including eating and sleeping. And when a person stops using, their body compels them to keep using through painful withdrawals.
For those who have a psychological predisposition to addiction, just because they aren’t addicted to drugs or alcohol, they may choose another means for that outlet, including gambling, sex, porn, video games, etc. Substance abusers can feel that they have no free will in stopping their use, and that’s the benefit of rehab, to help them reprogram their minds and behaviors.
If you’re suffering with substance abuse, consider traveling to another city or state for treatment for your disease. Traveling for treatment gets you away from stressful conditions, people and other things that may lead you to use.
