Addiction Affects Everything

Substance abuse and addiction affects more than just the person who is using. Addiction touches every aspect and every person in the addict’s life. Relationships with family and friends are strained due to behavioral issues in the pursuit of more and more of a substance, careers are ruined, health deteriorates, and society pays the price of keeping law and order when robberies and violence stems from drug abuse. People who are not normally prone to violence and crime become accustomed to it as a way of supporting their need for their drug of choice. Substance abuse can have a lasting effect on health due to years of malnutrition, transmission of diseases, heart disease, brain damage, central nervous system damage, lasting psychological disorders and even death. If you or a loved one are suffering from addiction then you shouldn’t hesitate to reach out and get help. Even someone who is in the beginning stages of addiction should get professional help to prevent all of these negative consequences from occurring.
