How did this happen? You’re addicted to drugs and now you’re looking for drug addiction treatment centers that specialize in treating people with your type of addiction. At this point, you may be feeling a lot of things: anger, worry, resignation, sadness, guilt. That’s okay because nobody thinks they’re going to get addicted; otherwise, they’d just wouldn’t try drugs in the first place.
The Path to Addiction
You weren’t always addicted. Maybe you tried drugs in school because all the cool kids did drugs. Maybe you were at a party and someone handed you a pipe or some pills. Maybe you got injured and needed pain meds, and the doctor that prescribed them didn’t realize you’d get hooked. Or maybe you raided your parent’s medicine cabinet and got hooked on their medications. There are millions of different stories, just as there are millions of addicts. Your story is unique, but the outcome is unfortunately all too predictable. You got hooked. Maybe you got caught and got arrested. Maybe you lost your job or got kicked out of school. Maybe you got into an accident. Or maybe a loved one found out.
Drug Addiction is a Chronic Disease
Drug addiction is a chronic disease. It needs to be treated like a disease where the addiction is the symptom of underlying causes. Maybe you have an undiagnosed mental illness such as depression, anxiety, or even schizophrenia where you have tried to “self-medicate” with your addiction to fix the problem. Maybe you had something bad happen that you needed help with, only you didn’t get the help except by using drugs. Only the drugs didn’t help; they caused yet more problems. And so, you’re looking for drug addiction treatment now, hoping you’ll be able to somehow get the help you need.
