When a person becomes addicted to drugs or alcohol, treatment is what is given, but rehabilitation is what is needed to fully recover. The definition for treatment is to care for or deal with medically or surgically. This is where the substitute drugs and “quick patch” programs fall in place, but don’t always provide an effective solution.
The definition for rehabilitation is to restore to a former capacity. This simply means for a person to be in the condition he was in before he had the ailments and the subsequent addiction. The three main barriers to overcoming addiction are the cravings (mental and physical), guilt and depression associated with the drug use.
Many people wonder what causes drug or alcohol addiction especially if they themselves or someone they know has never been affected by addiction. The first thing you must understand about addiction is that alcohol and addictive drugs are basically painkillers. They chemically kill physical or emotional pain and alter the mind’s perception of reality. They make people numb. For drugs to attractive to a person there must first be some underlying unhappiness, sense of hopelessness, or physical pain.
Addicts cannot stop using drugs for two reasons: Mental and physical cravings caused by drug residues which remain in the body and the biochemical personality caused by drugs and the lifestyle the person adopts to get them. These are the barriers that will stop a person from achieving lifelong recovery. Narconon Arrowhead provides inpatient rehabilitation that handles these barriers giving a person the life skills needed to live a healthy, happy, productive and drug free life.
