Level Up Lake Worth – Addiction Treatment
Drug addiction is a challenge facing millions of Americans, lurking in classrooms, offices, and living rooms from coast to coast. With the ability to destroy relationships, sideline careers, and interfere with home lives, addiction is deeply serious.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration, approximately 7.1 million individuals aged 12 or older meet the criteria for a drug use disorder, while 6.4 million have an alcohol use disorder. Further, roughly 8.2 million teens and adults have used illicit drugs in the last month, while 56% of those 18 and older have had alcohol in the previous month.
Substance abuse can pose significant threats to wellness, happiness, stability, and health. The more you know about drug and alcohol addiction, the better positioned you are to both identify and properly cope with signs of addiction in those you love – or in yourself.
According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, addiction is “a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry.” Addiction can be characterized by numerous physical and psychological signs, which often include:
- An inability to abstain from use for a prolonged period of time
- Impaired behavioral controls; addicted individuals will violate social norms in order to seek out the subject of addiction
- Diminished recognition of problematic actions, especially in interpersonal situations
- Inappropriate or dysfunctional behavior
While addiction exists in many forms, drug and alcohol addiction are among the most common. Due to the multifaceted nature of these illicit substances, addiction tends to have both physical and psychological components, creating a web from which can be exceptionally difficult to escape.
While only one of these factors may be considered a mild form of alcohol use disorder, most or all of them can indicate a severe case.
The Dangers of Addiction
Using drugs recreationally may seem like fun and games, but full-fledged addiction is anything but. Addiction can be extremely dangerous, putting users at mental, physical, and emotional risk. Unfortunately, as use worsens, some of the threats to well-being may be irreversible, creating lifelong challenges.
