Why do people use alcohol or other drugs, and what conditions can arise from drug abuse?
There are many reasons why people develop alcohol and drug addictions. Working with so many different clients has given the treatment professionals at Advanced Health and Education insight to identify some common reasons that people wind up abusing alcohol and other drugs.
- Relief from the stress and pressure we feel from social expectations that we fail to meet.
- Coping with unresolved guilt and shame.
- Boredom and/or desire to fit in (peer pressure).
- Use of a valid prescriptions that unintentionally develop into dependency or addiction.
Regardless of the reason why people start abusing alcohol or other drugs, when addictions develop, there comes a time that users won’t stop or can’t stop using.
Signs that you or your loved one’s substance use has become a problem can include:
- Neglecting responsibilities
- Risk taking
- Legal problems
- Inability to control use
Active addictions can seriously impact the body’s health. Excessive use of substances can lead to brain damage, stroke, organ failure, and heart disease.
