Archstone Recovery Can Help You With Your Drug or Alcohol Addiction
It’s an old myth that only certain people become addicts. Most people don’t think it could ever happen to them. “I can’t be a drug addict,” they think. “Drug addicts are”—older, younger, poorer, richer, urban, rural, black, white, Latino, male, female, gay, straight—whatever your stereotype is. You might be exposed to different drugs based on your lifestyle and friends: if you go to gay clubs, for example, you might be offered crystal meth; if you hang out at Phish concerts, expect someone to pass you a joint or offer you mushrooms; the other moms at Gymboree might pass you a Valium; your hunting pals will probably pass you a beer and a shot; and your bingo buddies at the senior center might recommend Oxycontin for those aches and pains. But drugs are everywhere, and no one is immune.
The fact is that addiction is part of our bodies’ chemistry. Our bodies evolved to adapt to new things, and when new drugs begin to affect the way the brain functions, our bodies adapt to include the new substance. When that happens, physical addiction occurs—a state where you need the drug to function. If you attempt to stop using the drug, you will experience a host of symptoms ranging from irritability to severe vomiting, pain, and even heart attacks or coma—known collectively as withdrawal. You may also find yourself using more and more of the drug, caring less and less about things that are not your drug of choice, and doing things you never thought you’d do just to get your hands on another drink or hit or pill.
If this sounds familiar, you may be addicted to drugs or alcohol. If that’s the case, it’s important to seek help. Drug and alcohol rehabilitation is a difficult process, and it’s important to have quality medical supervision, especially during the withdrawal phase.
