Too many people endure silently and unnecessarily from drug abuse because they believe it is meant to be a private secret, or they don’t understand how to get help. By using their self-control alone, many addicts try and fail to stop using, but drug abuse isn’t an illness that can be overcome with strength of mind. The highly skilled substance addiction experts at Drug Rehab Philadelphia have years of experience treating drug abuse kindly and effectively, using medically-proven treatment techniques. Drug Rehab Philadelphia challenges the popular misconception that drug addiction is a decision, instead, treating it as a disease.

 

What Is Drug Addiction?

 

What is drug addiction if it isn’t a decision? Scientists and psychologists think substance abuse disorder – often called addiction, drug abuse, or substance dependency – is a long-term sickness that will have to be managed and monitored, but can’t ever be ‘cured.’ The likening of drug addiction and illnesses like diabetes and hypertension is quite apt, because while people do not specifically choose to have those sicknesses, they usually don’t exercise or make ideal eating choices. The illness of substance addiction itself makes it inconceivable to control the hunger for drugs or alcohol, since drug abuse changes the mind to where choice is not a possibility anymore.

 

Consequences of Drug Addiction

 

Any abuse of legal or illegal drugs, including pharmaceutical medicine and alcohol, is thought of as a substance abuse disorder. The mental and social side effects of substance abuse can be just as dangerous as the various mental and medical results (diseases of the nervous system, blood-borne diseases, immune deficiencies, multiple organ failure, brain damage, etc). Substance abuse regularly results in the addict engaging in dangerous activities, including driving under the influence, criminal activities, preventable injuries, and dysfunctional behaviors that result in unhealthy relationships with family, at work, and within the larger population.
