Drug Addiction Treatment Centers Las Cruces NM

When you look at a cigarette packet, you are confronted with statistics relative to the main causes of death in this country. Although I cannot vouch for the absolute accuracy of these statistics, they do make interesting reading. Main cause of death is listed as tobacco, second is alcohol. Third main cause vehicular followed by illicit drugs and murder. Given that alcohol could be said to play a part in some of the vehicular deaths and also murder. It lends a fairly considerable weight to the argument.

The Reasons Behind Drug Addiction

Andrew Mitchell

Friday, September 14, 2007 Life quite often has a way of dealing out lessons at the most opportune time. They may not always be immediately understood or appreciated but, in hindsight we are able to learn from not only our own mistakes and misfortunes but from the mistakes and misfortunes of others.

I have a friend who is at present suffering from acute alcoholism, prescription and illicit drug use and injuries sustained from a serious collision with roadside trees while on a "pub run" to stock up on her poison of choice. Those close to our friend thought and hoped that the fact she had nearly killed herself and her 13 year old daughter while alcohol impaired may provide the "wake up call" she so seriously needs. Maybe make her look at her demons, if not for her own sake then for the sake of her children two of whom are under 10. Unfortunately we have been disappointed at every turn. Not only has she not accepted responsibility for her actions, she denies every facet of her addiction. The denial mechanism is so firmly entrenched at present she denies that she even drinks. This while begging her 16 year old daughter to bring her alcohol whilst she is in hospital. Which, she informs the nurses is Iced Tea.

Where do the life lessons come into this you ask? I too have had a battle with alcohol abuse. I too cranked up the denial machine. Now I get to see it from the other side.

Of all the drugs available in this country both legal and illicit, alcohol must be without a doubt the most insidious and damaging of all. It wrecks individual lives, families, property and not only causes death and injury but continues to be an ongoing drain to the community in both a financial and psychological sense.

When you look at a cigarette packet, you are confronted with statistics relative to the main causes of death in this country. Although I cannot vouch for the absolute accuracy of these statistics, they do make interesting reading. Main cause of death is listed as tobacco, second is alcohol. Third main cause vehicular followed by illicit drugs and murder. Given that alcohol could be said to play a part in some of the vehicular deaths and also murder. It lends a fairly considerable weight to the argument.

Looking at someone descending into the pits of substance abuse is a heartbreaking soul destroying exercise. Given that most alcohol abusers will deny they even have a problem leaves friends and loved ones at their wits end. I have seen and indeed have experienced family and friends desperate to help, resort to almost farcical measures to try and stop the abuser drinking or using. One family member of mine resorted to hiding all alcohol in their car if I was coming to their home. Whilst I applaud the fact that generally close friends and family want to help and by that very fact give cause for hope. Ultimately the buck starts and stops with the abuser.
