SSince its start, West Des Moines has been perfectly positioned at the crossroads of commerce and quality of life. The city started from a simple beginning, making a name for itself as a railroad town named Valley Junction; simple and to the point, just like its residents. The leaders of Valley Junction understood that to create a great community, they would have to be both creative and welcoming.
West Des Moines is a world unto itslef, and its residents have created a place where the Midwestern, small town ideals mesh with the broad-based city life. The city does a wonderful job of fostering new visitors, businesses and ideas, all of which help them flourish and encourage their community to reach for loftier heights.
It varies from person to person on the rate at which it takes people to become addicted to drugs or alcohol. The reason it varies is that there are many factors that determine how fast someone becomes addicted, including genetics, type of substance used, frequency of use, dosage, mental health issues, and sensitivity to the substance. Addiction is a disease, and it is passed down from generation to generation. This doesn’t mean all the offspring will automatically become addicted, but it does increase the likelihood that a child will become addicted. Also, people have different sensitivity to substances. One person may use a substance several times- even for months or years and never develop an addiction, while another person may get addicted after the first or second time they use.
Addiction is a behavioral and mental disease, and mental health issues can complicate and speed up the rate of addiction for some people. Other factors that impact the rate of addiction include environment, gender, age and emotional factors.
