Addiction is considered a chronic disease, and like any disease, it requires professional treatment in order to overcome it. What makes treating an addiction to drugs so challenging, however, is that it is a sly disease. It leads people to believe that they are either not addicted to a substance, or that they can stop using whenever they want. In reality, they do have an addiction and they do need help to stop using.
Drugs change the way the brain functions, literally rewiring it. It affects the reward structure of the brain, making a person think that he or she needs to continue using in order to be happy, or to feel “normal.” The more a person uses drugs, the more the brain is affected. Eventually, the brain – and the body – relies on drugs to function.
Unfortunately, that’s not all that addiction does to a person: it also makes an individual feel as if he or she is in control; however, the addiction is actually in control. As a result, it can be difficult for the addict to stop using a substance. He or she craves the drug. Once the addiction becomes severe, withdrawal effects can set in when the substance is not being used. The symptoms of withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable and in some cases, downright dangerous. In order to ease the symptoms, the addict uses again, and the cycle of addiction continues.
Why Treatment is Important
Once a person who is addicted to drugs realizes that a problem exists, he or she may try to stop using ‘cold turkey,’ or without help. While this may be effective for some people, it’s not recommended. Typically, the ‘cold turkey’ approach does not provide lasting sobriety. A person may be able to stay clean for a while, but is more likely to continue using again. Additionally, trying to stop using drugs without the proper help can be extremely dangerous; not only because of the side effects of withdrawal, but because there is an increased likelihood that if the individual starts using again, he or she will use in high doses.
With the right treatment, those who are addicted to drugs receive the guidance and support that is needed to help them overcome their addiction. This includes detox, which ensures that the withdrawal process is done as safely and comfortably as possible, as well as education and therapies that really help the addict understand his or her addiction and how to deal with it properly.
Research has shown that when those who are addicted to drugs undergo treatment through rehab, they are more likely to not only achieve sobriety, but they are more likely to remain sober.
