Getting Rid of Drugs

Research has shown that the ultimate responsibility for drug addiction lies with the patient because he or she initiated the drug himself. You have never done anything to cause him to have this disease but if you want you can play a full role in getting him out of drugs. The biggest obstacle to treatment is the self-deception of the drug addict. This self-deception does not allow the patient to look at his real situation. Addiction distorts the patient’s personality.

Despite being on the brink of disaster, his satisfaction is palpable. We think the patient is lying even though the patient is not really aware of his situation. Addiction does not allow him to realize the seriousness of the situation. On the other hand, unless proper treatment is given, drug addiction will continue to increase. Drug addiction can lead to fatal accidents, so immediate treatment is needed instead of waiting.

Drug Addict

Drug addiction dominates the patient’s senses in such a way that he does not seek help on his own, but always seeks drugs. In fact, under the influence of drugs, he cannot see the real picture of the situation. Everyone wonders why the patient suffers the most from what he does, yet he does not defend himself. The limit is that when someone advises him for treatment, he goes crazy. In fact, the amount of drugs he has been using for a long time is enough to damage his brain.

The Way of Treatment

His deteriorating condition is obvious, while the patient claims that nothing has gone wrong yet. Where is he in a hurry? No wonder he can avoid treatment. The biggest obstacle to treatment is the ignorance of the family. This is also a form of self-deception. This delays treatment by years. Everyone at home, including drug addicts, is suffering but is under the misconception that the matter is not serious and that things will gradually get better. When we do nothing about drug addiction, it only gets worse. Knowing the facts, families are willing to take positive steps.

Symptoms of the Disease

Why didn’t you see your loved one in time? Didn’t he have enough symptoms of drug addiction? Wasn’t he giving you a red signal? Were you busy with other things did he manage to hide everything? Or did you just not pay attention when you thought of your loved one as a drug addict? Families do not recognize him even after spending many years with the disease. This is because the human brain is fully capable of distracting from unpleasant events. This ability is present in every person.

Replacing the Patient

Under normal circumstances, this works. However, when the family thinks that all is well despite the scattered evidence, the drug addiction continues to grow. If you have been doing this then there is nothing unique about it. This is the normal reaction in such situations. People living on the earthquake belt are always ready for tremors.

They adapt their lifestyle to this pattern. It’s like living with a drug addict, but here we are not helpless. Instead of changing ourselves, we can change the patient if we first recognize the facts, understand the addiction and provide comprehensive treatment to our loved one.

Symptoms of the Disease

Drug addiction causes the patient to behave in a way that can be considered morally degrading and criminal, but in reality these are symptoms of the disease. Just like vomiting or fever in other diseases. Patient self-deception, mood swings, sudden changes in behavior, lying, cheating, laziness and neglect of duties are also some of the symptoms of this disease. Mere punishment or retribution, undue criticism or undue praise cannot bring about lasting change in the patient.

The method of tears and anger has never been successful. The idea of quitting a patient comes only when he has a problem with the drug. Families do not allow the pain caused by intoxication to reach the patient due to natural love. The taste of intoxication continues to reach him. That is why he cannot decide to give up drugs. It is a mistake to think that families can do nothing if the patient does not want to. It is true that the family did nothing to cure the disease, but they can do much to help them recover.
