Stop Letting Addictions Distort Your Outlook On Life

addiction counseling

How’s Your View?

Addictions including alcoholism distorts the users view, which blocks them from seeing the true beauty of life. However, a number of effective treatments are available and people can recover from addiction and live normal, productive lives.

Addictions skew the addicts perception causing them to focus on the substance rather than the impact of that substance. According to the American Psychiatric Association, people with a substance use disorder have distorted thinking, behavior and body functions. Changes in the brain’s wiring are what cause people to have intense cravings for the drug and make it hard to stop using the drug. Brain imaging studies show changes in the areas of the brain that relate to judgment, decision making, learning, memory and behavior control.

How Do I Get Help?

The first step on the road to recovery is recognition of the problem. The recovery process can be hindered when a person denies having a problem and lacks understanding about substance misuse and addiction. The intervention of concerned friends and family often prompts treatment.

A health professional can conduct a formal assessment of symptoms to see if a substance use disorder exists. Even if the problem seems severe, most people with a substance use disorder can benefit from treatment. Unfortunately, many people who could benefit from treatment don’t receive help.

If you or anyone you know is battling alcoholism or any other addiction help is only a phone call away. We want to hear from you!
