ALCOHOL ADDICTION - WHAT IT IS

HERE IS WHAT WE BELIEVE. ALCOHOLISM IS A PREDICTABLE, PROGRESSIVE AND CHRONIC DISEASE. THOSE AFFLICTED WITH SUBSTANCE ABUSE STRUGGLE WITH THE INCESSANT NEED TO USE, EVEN IF IT IS NEGATIVELY AFFECTING THEIR LIVES.  

ALCOHOL ADDICTION CAN DISMANTLE PEOPLE'S LIVES. IT IMPACTS RELATIONSHIPS, CAREERS, FINANCES AND MORE.

WITHOUT TREATMENT, A PERSON ADDICTED TO ALCOHOL WILL DETERIORATE AND EVENTUALLY WILL END UP INCARCERATED, INSANE OR DEAD.

IS ALCOHOL A PROBLEM ON YOUR LOVED ONE'S LIFE?

IF YOU CAN ANSWER YES TO ANY OF THESE QUESTIONS, YOUR LOVED ONE MAY BE STRUGGLING WITH ALCOHOL ADDICTION:

CAN YOUR LOVED ONE STOP AFTER CONSUMING 1 OR 2 DRINKS?

HAS HE OR SHE SUFFERED ANY CONSEQUENCES FROM DRINKING, SUCH AS JOB LOSS, DWI, OR BROKEN RELATIONSHIPS?

DOES HE OR SHE DRINK IN SECRET AND ATTEMPT TO HIDE THE EVIDENCE?

DOES HE OR SHE HAVE A HIGH TOLERANCE TO ALCOHOL?

THERE IS A SOLUTION

AN ADDICTED PERSON BECOMES UNABLE TO SEE OR ASSESS THE PROBLEM. AN ADDICTED MIND CAN'T DISCERN THE SOLUTION. THE SOLUTION MUST COME FROM ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE THAT SEES THE PROBLEM CLEARLY. THE KEY IS THAT THIS OTHER PERSPECTIVE MUST SPEAK A LANGUAGE THE ADDICTED PERSON CAN UNDERSTAND.

DRUG ADDICTION - WHAT IT IS

THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE ON DRUG ABUSE (NIDA) DEFINES DRUG ADDICTION AS A chronic, relapsing brain disease that is characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences.

NIDA CONSIDERS IT A brain disease because drugs change the brain. They change THE BRAIN'S structure and how it works. These brain changes can be long lasting and can lead to many harmful, often self-destructive, behaviors.

If you or someone you love is addicted to drugs they could exhibit a few or all of the following signs and symptoms:*

Cravings. People may experience intense urges or cravings for the drug as their addiction develops.

Physical dependence. Physical dependence to drugs can develop as people grow accustomed to the persistent presence and influence of the substance. The changes in physiology that accompany this process leave people feeling badly or functioning sub-optimally when the drug is no longer in the system.

Tolerance. Over time and with prolonged use, people can build up a tolerance to the drug, meaning they need more of the drug to achieve the desired effects.

Withdrawal symptoms. Some people experience withdrawal symptoms when they attempt to stop using abruptly or when they wean themselves off the drug over a period of time. This is the presence of a withdrawal syndrome indicates that physiologic dependence is at play.

Poor judgement. When an individual is addicted to drugs, he or she may do anything to obtain more, including risky behaviors such as stealing, lying, engaging in unsafe sexual activity, selling drugs, or crimes that could land the person in jail.

Drug-seeking. People may spend excessive amounts of time and energy finding and getting their drug of choice.

Financial trouble. People may spend large amounts of money, drain their bank accounts, and go outside their budgets in order to get the drug. This is a major red flag.

Neglect responsibilities. When people choose using or getting the drug over meeting work or personal obligations, this is a classic sign of addiction.

Develop unhealthy friendships. When people start using new substances, they may spend time with others who have similar habits. They may hang out with a new group of people who may encourage unhealthy habits.

Isolate. Alternatively, they may withdraw and isolate themselves, hiding their drug use from friends and family. Some reasons for this may include perceived stigma or increased depression, anxiety, or paranoia as a result of their drug addiction.
