Begin Recovery Today with Drug Rehab in San Antonio

 

So many people endure silently and pointlessly from dependency because they think it is meant to be a secret, or they do not know how to get help. By using their self-control alone, many addicts try and fail to stop using, but substance dependency is not a disease that can be beat with self-control. Drug Rehab Centers San Antonio’s highly skilled drug addiction professionals possess the experience and compassion to address addiction successfully, using medically-proven rehabilitation techniques. Drug Rehab Centers San Antonio is aware that dependency is an illness, not a choice – which is a common misunderstanding regarding drug addiction.

 

What’s Substance Abuse Disorder?

 

But if addiction is not a choice, what is it? Doctors and therapists think substance abuse disorder – commonly known as substance addiction, substance abuse, or substance dependency – is a long-term sickness that will have to be managed and regulated, but can’t ever be ‘cured.’ The comparison between substance dependency and illnesses like diabetes and hypertension is quite apt, because while people do not specifically choose to contract these sicknesses, they often do not work out or make ideal eating choices. The illness of substance addiction itself makes it unimaginable to manage the cravings for drugs or alcohol, because addiction modifies the mind to where choice is no longer an option.

 

Consequences of Substance Dependency

 

Substance abuse disorder encompasses any abuse of legal or illegal drugs, including pharmaceutical medicine and alcohol. Not only are there various, nearly innumerable physiological and medical consequences to substance abuse (disorders of the nervous system, blood-borne diseases, immune deficiencies, multiple organ failure, brain damage, etc), but psychological and social issues that can be equally lethal. By decreasing judgment, substance abuse disorders often lead to the addict participating in unsafe activities, like driving while intoxicated, criminal activities, preventable injuries, and dysfunctional behaviors that result in unhealthy relationships with family, at work, and in the larger community.
