Getting The Right Help To Overcome Drug Or Alcohol Addiction

Drug and alcohol addiction can ruin lives, and affect not only the person with the addiction, but also their family and friends. Knowing someone close to you has a serious problem with drugs can be soul destroying, particularly when you feel helpless, but getting the right help for your family member or friend can help both you and them to recover from this traumatic experience. When you are trying to help someone who has a drug or alcohol addiction, it can be important to remember that these problems often have associated feelings of depression and low-self esteem, which make coming back from addiction even more difficult. It is therefore vital that you keep in contact with the addict, and reassure them of your continuing affection.

The person who is addicted needs help, probably starting with a visit to their doctor to obtain alcohol addiction treatment, or drug addiction help. The doctor is authorized to stay in contact with the addict, and provide them with the names of charities and government groups who are specifically created to provide drug and alcohol addiction help. This help can be in the form of therapy, counselling, medication, and even hospital stays if that is what it takes. Government services can also give them advice about financial and social assistance, which is often vital to a person trying to get back on their feet.

Alcohol is perhaps the worst kind of addiction, since the drug is so easy to obtain. Many forms of alcohol addiction treatment focus upon healing the mind of the addict. Certain 12-step programs, for instance, aim to manage the psychological effects of long-term alcohol addiction, and provide a place where the addict can reach out and receive advice and understanding. For people who have a serious habit, however, they may find that they need more than just comfort and support, and for them, there are many types of medical alcohol addiction treatment aimed at creating a mental link between alcohol and feelings of nausea and disgust. Linked to therapy, these medical interventions can be successful.

For drug addicts, the treatment will sometimes be aimed at providing a replacement drug, or perhaps moving them away from sources of temptation. These kinds of addiction help will be necessary to those who have built their lives around their addiction, often sacrificing family relationships in order to satisfy their craving for drugs. In these cases, the aim of support groups is to help the addict to rebuild his ordinary social relationships, and help him to adjust to life without drugs.
