The disease of addiction is cunning, baffling, and powerful. Addiction is still not fully understood, however it is a disease and requires expert treatment to overthrow its deadly grasp. The person will certainly have an aspect of mental obsession with the substance as well as an abnormal physical reaction once it is ingested.
The National Institute of Health classifies four separate stages of substance abuse, which are experimentation, ongoing use, dangerous use, and dependence or addiction. Once a person has reached the final stage, physical dependence, he or she will most likely need help to stop using. In essence, the addictive substance hijacks the normal neural processes and convinces the person that the substance is more important than anything else, even survival.
As a result of the strong hold that the addictive substance has on the user’s mind, he or she may truly not realize what is happening. Denial is a given in cases of addiction and often the person believes that they are not causing any harm to themselves or others. They simply cannot see what seems obvious to those around them.
The most frustrating and disheartening part is having to watch a loved one struggling with substance abuse destroy his or her health, opportunities, relationships and life in general. The best way to help this person is to stage an intervention and encourage him or her to enter an addiction treatment center.
An intervention is a conversation where the person is confronted about his or her substance abuse and subsequent behavior. The disease of addiction kills far too many Americans a year. Do not let your loved one become just another statistic.
