Drug Rehab Information By City
has a long history.
It was a problem in the 1850’s when morphine was developed as a non-addictive substitute.
Morphine was soon a bigger addiction
problem than opium.
The morphine problem was ‘solved’ with another opium derivative – Heroin, which proved to be even more addictive than either morphine or opium. In the middle and latter parts of the 20th century along come methadone as the cure for heroin.
You guessed it, methadone is stronger, more addictive, and more life threatening than any of the opium derivatives that came before it. Ask any methadone addict, or addiction professional dealing with methadone addiction
and withdrawal. By the 1990’s the mortality rate from opium derivatives was estimated to be 20 times greater than the general population.
Many will try and assert that there is no addiction
Usually this is coming from so-called experts who meaning well, have yet seen little or no long term solutions to the problem of addiction
and so have labeled it an incurable disease.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Addiction
is a condition characterized by repeated, compulsive seeking and use of drugs, alcohol, or other substances despite social, mental, and physical consequences.
It is an attempt to use the drugs or alcohol to solve life’s problems, with the solution becoming the problem. The cure is the handling of ALL the elements that have lead up to drug abuse
and addiction and then continued it – cravings, guilt, and depression playing major roles. It is not just cessation of drug use. It involves the acquiring of a whole array of life skills so that life’s problems can be confronted and one can live life happily and productively – drug free.
There are various forms and methods of ingesting drugs and toxins. Orally, nasally, injecting, and smoking are a few of these. The effects from smoking drugs as opposed to orally ingesting them or nasally generally creates a more intense effect faster. This is one of the factors that make crack cocaine a tougher addiction
to break than powder cocaine.
Drugs like Oxycontin are often ground up and mixed with other drugs and smoked for faster more intense highs as well. Also many times the harder drugs like heroin are smoked under the misunderstanding that the risk of addiction
is lower and this is definitely not true. Addiction
is addiction, some methods of taking drugs will take you to addiction faster and with more devastating effects.
