Gaudenzia's Philosophy
We are here because there is no refuge, finally, from ourselves.
Until people confront themselves in the eyes and hearts of others,
they are running. Until they suffer others to share their secrets,
they have no safety from them. Afraid to be known, they can know
neither themselves nor any other; they will be alone.
Where else but in our common ground can we find such a mirror?
Here, together, people can at last appear clearly to themselves
- not as the giant of their dreams, nor the dwarfs of their fears -
but as individuals, part of a whole, with a share in its purpose.
In this ground we can each take root and grow, not alone anymore as in death, but alive to ourselves and to others

Drug Addiction

Drug Addiction

Anne Wolski

Friday, September 14, 2007 Drug addiction is a state of being that is characterised by the compulsive intake and intoxication of a drug. It is the compulsion to consume the drug, regardless of the negative consequences. It can be either a physical or psychological addiction or even a combination of both of these.

It is more appropriate to say that it is a behavioural problem where the use of a mind altering substance dominates the person's motivation and where it appears that normal controls no longer work. Addiction is actually a complicated brain disorder but it can be treated.

This is one of the most common illnesses in the Western world with an estimated nine million Americans needing treatment for an addiction. This makes the condition more prevalent than heart disease. There are also thousands of drug-related deaths every year and around a quarter of AIDS cases are from injecting drugs.

Not every drug affects every user in the same way. It is believed that some people are more predisposed to addiction than others. This may be psychological or genetic in nature. Also, some drugs require more exposure than others before addiction sets in.

Often, substance abuse is confused with addiction. However, substance abuse which is any use of a harmful substance can occur with or without addiction. These drugs affect the neurological impulses affecting motivation and reward. They also inhibit further learning, therefore meaning that further use ceases to make learning important to the user.

It has long been known that Glutamate, Dopamine, and Serotonin, chemicals in the brain, are associated with drug addiction and the compulsive behaviours related to cocaine and amphetamine use.

There are two components to drug addiction and these are physical dependency and psychological dependency. With physical dependency, the person has used the drug so often that it is now habit and he or she must continue to use the drug in order to feel that they are able to function normally. To stop using the drug would bring on severe and highly unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.

Psychological dependency, on the other hand, happens when the drug has been used regularly to obtain pleasure or alleviate pain and the person has become emotionally dependent on the effect. As with physical dependency, to stop the drug makes the person feel incapable of normal functioning and produces intense cravings. It is common for addicts to have both physical and psychological dependency.

There are treatments available to help the addict. These can include cognitive therapy, psychotherapy, counselling, medications and combinations of any of these. The success of treatment is just as effective as it is for other chronic disorders such as asthma and high blood pressure and the treatment is cost effective.

It has also been noted that there is a marked reduction in drug related crime among those under treatment. Additionally, those on Methadone tre...
