A great number of stimulants, depressants, opiates, marijuana, hallucinogens, inhalants, and drugs with mixed effects induce psychological dependency.
Some of them have a high rate of psychological dependence and some have a high rate of physical dependence. Every psychoactive drug produces dependence; however, they have varying responses.
Every substance that produces addiction has tolerance levels, side effects, overdose effects, and withdrawal effects.
Side effects of different drugs might include one of more of the following: Alertness, loss of appetite, insomnia, pulse rate and blood pressure, euphoria, alertness, drunken behavior, slurred speed, confusion, altered perception, hallucination, etcetera.
Psychotropic treatment is available for almost every kind of drug in question mot limited to street drugs, alcohol, prescription drugs or anything. The overall goal of the psychotropic treatment is to prevent the intention of the patient to be on the drug anymore, thereby providing legal, financial, social, and physical security for the person in question.
Many of them who tend to resort to psychotropic treatment are those who have lost their jobs due to addiction and those who are trying to rejuvenate on their plans to be sober. They are doing it to get their job back, indeed their lives back.
Concepts of chemical dependency are slowly changing the view that once an opiate addict should be forever. It is quite possible for even chronic addicts to come out of narcotic addiction with due treatment for their addiction behavior from experienced rehabilitative physicians.
The results of rehabilitation is influenced by several factors like age, employment, motivation for rehabilitation, fear of the consequence of continuing to be addicted, treatment history, social support from family and friends, and other psychological and financial parameters of the patient.
If you “can’t help” out of addiction yourself; ask for help. There is indeed plenty of help available for drug rehabilitation. Ask for help today!
