Let’s be honest here for a couple of seconds, shall we? We tell our kids that they should never take drugs but we’ve all had some sort of a drug experience at some point or the other in life. Sure, you might talk about it as how it was a bad idea and how you were young and naïve, but the truth is that you did it because you and your friends liked it, but then you all collectively decided to put that behind you. Case in point, you got out of it without getting addicted, right?
There are indeed some pretty nasty substances out there that create physical dependency in your body once you take them. However, not all users of these kinds of super addictive substances get hooked on them. Conversely, some people get really addicted to substances that aren’t extremely addictive in their nature. This raises the question; what’s worse, the drugs or the person using them?
The user’s personality and behavioral patterns are mostly to blame for drug addiction, you see. Not that we condone using addictive substances for recreation, but it’s true that these substances only creep into your life as much as you let them. Every case of drug addiction has certain circumstantial reasons attached to them and this is often overlooked in rehab. Perhaps why rehabs have such a bad rep is because they focus on detoxifying the patient’s body instead of helping patients explore and unravel the problems that let them get addicted in the first place.
At Hygrove rehab Gloucester, patients are treated like guests instead of inmates and are guided to their recovery. They’re made to eat good food, be occupied with healthy activities and are given therapy so that they can fix the problems that made them depend on drugs as they did.
