Drug Addiction Rehabilitation Cape Town South Africa
Drug Addiction is a topic that I am fond of because I had a long journey through addiction, primarily with alcohol, but also with a variety of drugs, both legal and illegal. It’s very common for an addict to have a varying mixture of ways that their illness plays out and they usually settle on one as their primary addiction. Drugs affect everyone in all walks of life and addiction does not discriminate in any way, if a person is an addict then they are an addict, regardless of social, economic, geographical, education, race, gender or anything else. The way that addiction treatment has gone wrong, in my opinion, is that many simply do not understand the changes in the brain that take place. An addict can be rational, intelligent and driven, the most caring person in the world but once the substance or behaviour takes over, their basic needs change with it. In the case of drug addiction, once the drug is in the system, all logic and rational thinking goes out of the window and the persons base requirements are purely to get more of the drugs. Normal everyday things begin to take second place and eventually drop away. Self-care, relationships, eating, work, things that used to be important become unimportant. This is why an addict will simply go on destroying things around them until people leave, they get sacked from work or they get sick. Many people have different opinions of what addiction is but once you understand this basic principle, you can begin to treat it effectively. Desire is the important factor. Sadly this usually only comes from desperation and usually as a result of damages to the person and those close to them. In simple terms they need to want treatment and then learn how to live life differently starting with the basics. That’s why the addiction rehabilitation process takes time and is not easy. There is a positive side of course and at CapeRecovery we have the perfect way to treat addicts once they have made that decision to change, we start by appropriate placement according to the individuals requirements. This ensures that the person is in the perfect place and to me is indicative of any recovery process.
