Drug Abuse and Addiction

Drug Abuse: habitual use of drugs to alter one's mood, emotion, or state of consciousness, excessive use of drugsAddiction: Compulsive physiological and psychological need for a habit-forming substanceDrug abuse and addiction is a serious problem that many individuals face today.

Although it is not known as to why some people turn to drugs, there are other reasons why some do.

Some people turn to drugs because of pain within.

Only the individual.

It's a sad thing to see because there is nothing you can do to help an individual with addiction until they are ready to help themselves.

They really believe that they are not addicted and that there is nothing wrong with them and until they see it, it's nothing you can say or do.

Addiction is a difficult thing to deal with for the individual and their family.

The rehabilitation process is a slow and patient process for both the family and the individual.

The family has to keep the faith that this is going to get better and the individual has to belive that they can do this.
