How drug rehabilitation can change your life
Rehabilitation can help minimize or even slow down the disabling effects of chronic health conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes by equipping people with self-management strategies.
Do I need Medical Assistance For My Addiction?
Diagnosing drug addiction (substance use disorder) requires a thorough evaluation and often includes an assessment by a psychiatrist, psychologist or licensed alcohol and drug counsellor. Blood, urine or other lab tests are used to assess the severity of substance abuse but they're not diagnostic for addiction.
Do Traumatic Experiences Caus Addiction Problems
The emotional toll of substance abuse and addiction can lead trauma victims down a life-altering path. Substance abusers may turn to drugs or alcohol out of the desire for relief from some form of mental pain. This risk is not exclusive to people who are addicted but also includes those on their journey toward recovery where they have been dealing with addictive tendencies that feed into depression, anxiety, stress disorders, etc
What is Drug and Alcohol Addiction
The factors that can affect drug use include peer pressure, sexual abuse, stress and parental guidance. Early exposure to drugs also affects the risk of addiction in a person's life as well. The genetic makeup of an individual interacts with these critical developmental stages which influences how likely they are for addiction risks
What is Addiction Counselling
