Drug Rehab

Drug Rehab Center In Melbourne, Florida

Drug addiction is an unfortunate reality in the United States. The National survey of drug use and health reported 22 million Americans suffered from substance abuse disorders in 2014, with 7 million of those individuals being specifically addicted to legal and illicit drugs. Drug addiction is not only a serious battle for the user, but it also takes a toll on the people directly affected by the individuals use, like their friends and family. In addition to having an adverse effect on communities at large, increasing crime levels, and placing a strain on human and social agencies. People suffering from drug addiction are not usually able to function in a normal, healthy way, inflicting duress on the people in their immediate surroundings, and others who depend on them. Abusing drugs makes it challenging for an individual to care for themselves, nevermind their children, and as a result, the kids can suffer neglect and profound abuse at the hands of the addict. It is estimated that 40-80 percent of children in the child welfare system in the United States are there as a result of a parents addiction issues. Spouses and partners suffer as well, as the addict becomes hopelessly selfish, and dishonest in their pursuit to maintain their high. Their financial well being dissolved, as all of the money is going to support the drug habit, and little or no job prospects to generate more income as the addict is not able to hold down a job. Families with individuals who abuse drugs report seeing more domestic violence, divorce, and child abuse and/or neglect. It is truly a family disease, as no one is left unaffected.

Treating Addiction

At our drug rehab in Melbourne, we know that there is no known cause for addiction, but we do know that there are proven contributing factors, that would increase one’s potential to develop a drug addiction. A person’s genetic predisposition, and family history of addiction is a driving factor. There are also psychological contributors, people who have experienced some form of trauma, or suffer from a mental health disorder like, depression or anxiety are more at risk for drug abuse. People who find it challenging to cope with difficult situations, or have issues with ongoing work or life struggles may be more likely to fall into addiction. Poor social skills or lack of meaningful relationships and connections can also increase an individual’s potential to develop a substance use disorder. Aside from what the individual experiences internally there are also external factors, like cultural or societal pressures that can come into play. Drug use among your friend groups, or home environment can be a factor, as can relationship issues and pressures. People who live in low income areas, and have a low level of education are also at a higher risk of falling prey to this disease.
