Addiction Medicine Specialists

Struggles with Opioid And Alcohol Addiction

Opioid and alcohol tolerance and dependence are developed over time and can lead to significant side effects on your body, mind, and social environment. Many times withdrawal from these drugs will put your body in a state where it needs the drug to continue to function, and at that point, the user needs help from an outside source, either a family or close friend, and finally a trusted drug treatment facility nearby.


Tolerance and Dependence

Tolerance and dependence grow as time goes by, and the user requires large amounts of the drugs to feel the same high as they once had. For alcohol, this is a tolerable effect that can be handled with the help of someone else, or by willpower. For a more potent addiction like opioids, it can be very difficult to function during withdrawal phases, even with the help of others. 2nd Chance Treatment in Phoenix has a thorough program for opioid addictions and can root the addiction from the ground up.


Social Side Effects of Addiction

There are also the social side effects whereby you cannot have a healthy relationship with your family and mates. You tend to be aggressive at times, and this might ruin your relationship with people around you. Often times behavioral therapy treatments will help the user in this kind of situation and ease them back into their social environments.

Fortunately, addiction treatment specialists are there to see you through the process until you are not under the influence of the two conditions.

Handling the addiction by yourself

You can control alcohol and opium addiction on your own after receiving motivation from your physician, family, friends or colleagues. It takes passion and willingness to overcome it. For example, one can get into new activities. By being busy, you can barely think about drugs. You can also change the people you associate yourself with and get new friends. This will make it harder for you to access drugs and eventually you will entirely do away with them. Participating in groups with people who have fulfilling lives is the best way to rid your life of drugs and their overhanging shadow.
