Body: Addiction to drugs and alcohol is a serious problem in society for people all over the world. Each and every year people try drugs and become addicted. The problem afflicts the younger people the most. The majority of people becoming addicted to drugs like Heroin, Cocaine and Methamphetamine are Teens and young adults. You may wonder why addiction is rising most in this area. Drug use in teens usually starts with smoking pot or cigarettes. This then can lead to harder drugs as the years go by. The majority of teens that start using drugs and that become addicted come from bad homes and were usually subjected to great adversity and or abuse from an early age.In the recent past their has been growing abuse of prescription painkillers. These drugs are all opiates, that is they are derived from the opium from the opium poppy. The most commonly abused opiate, Heroin, is illegal is most parts of the world. However, most opiates are perfectly legal and available by prescription. They can often be just as potent as street dope and often times even more so, particularly Oxycontin and generic Oxycodone contain medications. Even though these drugs have legitimate medical use, they produce a pleasurable euphoria that teens can find very appealing. Most aren't prepared for the terrible withdrawal symptoms that occur when discontinuing the use of these drugs and that is what keeps people using for years. Once a person has become addicted, it can take years for them to come to grips with the notion that they are an addict or that they have a serious problem. While it is possible to quit on your own, most people need to seek professional help to beat an addiction. Rehabs can be very helpful, but the success rate tends to be quite low for first time attendees. I've been to rehab a few times myself and in most cases the patients I've met have been to treatment on average 4-7 times over the course of their lives. I'd say the average age of patients I've met is 35-45.Most people use for about 5-10 years prior to entering treatment for the first time. The teens and very young adults tend to go because they're pressured by family, not because they are ready to take their recovery seriously. For me, I had to experience the hell of being addicted for 10 years before I realized that there simply was no way I could possibly continue living unless I gave up drinking and drug use altogether. Since using tends to be enjoyable, there usually needs to be an overwhelming amount of evidence that using will cause nothing but problems before people will quit Unfortunately, this usually takes years. Whatever a person decides to do, the important thing is recognizing that they want to make a change. Without that, you cannot help them. Going cold turkey is not fun but medications such as


Suboxone can be a great help. Not long ago, I discovered a little known method for breaking the cycle of addiction dead in it's tracks.It stops heroin withdrawal and cravings for drugs and alcohol.This is something that will not only stop the physical withdrawal, but the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects as well.
