Drug Addiction Explained by Drug Addiction Center

    TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec, June 13 /CNW/ -- According to Narconon
Trois-Rivieres, drug addiction is not a random coincidence. The onset of drug
addiction may be caused in most instances by a problem, a particular
discomfort, an emotional disturbance or physical pain that the individual
cannot handle or fix. The individual will find it very difficult to deal with
that particular thing.

    So, finding no apparent solution, this individual tries drugs or alcohol.
The drugs simply give the illusion of solving his/her problem. That individual
now feels better. The drugs or alcohol have become a cure of the unwanted
feelings. The painkilling effects or the numbing of the drugs or alcohol are a
quick and easy solution for the pain or discomfort. From then on, it is just a
matter of time before the person loses all conscious restraints and becomes
fully addicted to the substance consumed.
    As the drug addict's drug and alcohol consumption increases, the guilt
and the symptoms of depression will also accentuate. It will even get to a
point where the drug addict will sacrifice his/her personal integrity,
relationships with family and friends, savings, retirement pension and
anything else that may be of use to get more drugs to support their habit.
    There has been a reigning controversy over whether an individual is
predisposed to addiction. Within the scientific community, it has been debated
for years whether a person is genetically or biochemically inclined towards
drug addiction. One particular school of thought advocates the "disease
concept," which supports the notion that a drug addiction is an inherited
disease and that the individual is permanently ill at the genetic level, even
for those experiencing long periods of sobriety. However, all these views on
drug addiction are still widely disputed and none have been concretely proven
to prevail over the others.
    Narconon recognizes the difficulties of being a drug addict. The majority
of the staff working there is made up of former drug addicts wishing to aid
others to regain control over their existence. A day can make a difference in
an addict's life. Narconon expresses this commitment by helping individuals
that request their assistance.
