Myth: Drug usage is entirely voluntary behavior.
Fact: People with substance use disorders act upon a biological and psychological dependence, which addictive substances satisfy. Extended periods of drug use destroys neurological and organic chemicals within the body, inhibiting certain chemicals (like serotonin) from occurring naturally. Subsequently, the body requires the presence of certain addictive chemicals to function normally.
Myth: Drug addicts willingly put themselves in environments conducive to substance abuse.
Fact:Patients of prescription drug abuse often become addicted after sustaining legitimate injuries when trusted medical professionals prescribe highly addictive medications for conditions; some of which do not merit the potency of the prescription. In other words, pharmaceutical companies largely contribute to drug addiction.
Myth: Drug addicts want to get high because they’re lazy and unmotivated party fiends.
Fact: Substance abusers often pursue the liberating effects induced by drugs and alcohol in an attempt to self medicate. Self medication is the desperate battle to escape from internal and external conflict, and can stem from undiagnosed depression, tragic events (including the death of a loved one), anxiety, anger, and domestic violence or sexual abuse. Self medication is a cry for help, which frequently goes unanswered, because drug abuse is typically perceived as the sole problem. Most patients with substance use disorders lack the life skills to effectively cope and manage stress.
Residential drug rehab is governed with the recognition drug abuse is a quantifiable disease as real as diabetes, and follows inpatient medical detox treatment. The medical detox process eliminates substance dependency, and attempts to restore naturally occurring chemical functionality.
