What happens when you take drugs?
When you take drugs, the pleasure centers in your brain activate. Drugs provide a sensation in your brain that becomes impossible for your body to mimic. After a time, you only achieve the sensation (aka the “high”) from drugs. Your body builds a tolerance to the drugs, requiring more to achieve the same high you felt on a lower dosage. After an undermined amount of time, you can not function without the drugs.
Drugs affect all aspects of your life. A drug habit is expensive, so it impacts your finances. Drugs make you feel good, but they impact your behavior negatively. Your drug habit can cost you your job. If your friends do not approve, withdrawal from them and only spend time with people who support your addiction-fueled lifestyle. Abuse of drugs takes a toll on your appearance. Users stop caring about what they look like, so their personal hygiene disappears. Drug addiction also leads to death.
Why should a person stop using drugs?
There are too many positives to mention when it comes to stopping drug use. Here are just a few of the best reasons to quit.
- Avoiding legal consequences – drugs are illegal, so you remove the chance you will face legal issues due to your use.
- Improves finances-drugs are expensive, so when you quit, you save money.
- Improvement in health – quitting drugs has countless health benefits that can have a positive impact on anything from your skin, teeth, heart, and blood vessels. Quitting drugs also means you avoid the infections that are common in intravenous drug users who share needles.
- Relationship quality with family improves – drugs don’t just impact the user; they harm a whole family. As you put drugs behind you, positive relationships with your family return. Our Arizona drug rehab offers family therapy to aid in this part of the process.
We have listed just a few downsides, but there are hundreds more. There are no positives to continued drug use.
Steps to get drug-free
The first step in getting clean is acknowledging you need help. You can’t treat a problem if you don't admit it exists. Once you make that decision, tell your family and friends. You need their support. In conjunction with your family, decide what style of treatment and facility fits your needs. These decisions are the second most important decisions you make; the first is the wanting sobriety.
