Drug addictions are considered now to be diseases. That’s because, people can die from drug addictions. Deaths from overdoses are a huge problem right now in our country. Many people with problems with addictions believe that drug treatment centers would not be able to help them. Generally speaking, that is not true at all.
Like other diseases, drug addictions, now called Substance Use Disorders, do have treatments, which are FDA approved to be both safe and effective. One benefit of entering into a drug treatment is that the facility and staff are best-trained and equipped to help individuals with Substance Use Disorders. Some individuals, with treatment, will be able to stop the drugs of abuse for the rest of their life. Others may be able to control their addictions while they stay in treatment. Like other chronic diseases, some Substance Use Disorders are more severe and are not actually curable, but are controllable.
That is much like the disease of Diabetes, which can be controlled, but not cured.
Another benefit of seeking treatment for drug addiction, is the help that the facility can provide for not only the patient themselves, but for their families. Most facilities and centers will ask the individual to bring in their family as part of the treatment. This can be very important in reducing anger within the family, as well as helping the family to provide appropriate support, especially during times of frustrations.
