Addiction myth: I’m a bad person.
People who abuse alcohol and drugs and have an addiction are often terrified of being judged as ‘bad’ or ‘immoral’. This fear leads to denial and attempts to hide the addiction from family, friends and colleagues. Even though the addict may have done some unpleasant or unkind things to other people while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, this does not mean they are bad people. Treatment at a rehab clinic can reaffirm this.
At rehab, they are able to talk about their addiction openly and honestly with a therapist and in group sessions. They can admit some of the shameful things they have done in their past and listen to others who have had similar experiences.
Painkillers – Vicodin, Hydrocodone, Morphine, Fentanyl and OxyContin
Painkillers are a vital part of medicine, so how do you draw the line between appropriate use and addiction to prescription pain medicines? The vast majority of people taking prescription painkillers do not get addicted.
However if the user becomes psychologically dependent on them, then physical addiction can develop. Warning signs of painkiller addiction include: When painkillers are taken to “function normally” during the day or when socialising; when the user begins to increase their dose themselves without consulting with their doctor; when the user feels they have to hide the drugs from their family and friends when devious or illegal methods are used to get more painkillers.
Confidentiality and privacy
The biggest barriers to people getting help for alcohol/drug addiction are guilt, shame and stigma. An assurance of confidentiality is vital to those seeking treatment, especially if they are high profile executives or public figures.
Fortunately, residential rehab clinics take a client’s right to anonymity very seriously and treatment between doctor and patient is completely private and confidential.
Gambling is one of the fastest-growing addictions in the world today. Thanks to the internet gamblers have access to 24/7 gambling from any location they choose and with the use of their credit card they are able to run up thousands of pounds of debt at any time. Unfortunately, many gamblers do not seek help until the problem is severe and they are faced with problems at work, broken family relationships and financial ruin.
Alcohol in Europe
Some nations have a culture of social drinking, others of binge drinking, others of general abstinence. Europe is home to the world’s heaviest drinkers… In 2006 Europeans drank 79 billion litres of alcohol, that is 101.25 litres for every person. In the Asia Pacific region, it was just 22.1 litres per person in 2006. Nearly all the top 15 biggest drinking nations are in Central or Eastern Europe. Poverty and the harsh climate, particularly in Russia and post-Soviet states such as the Ukraine and Moldova, play a role in this high figure, as does the tradition of drinking in their culture and the production of bootleg alcohol.
