California is a beautiful state, many come to it to enjoy the sunshine. The state is home to many famous actors and actresses as well as those inspiring to be famous one day. This state calls out to many with dreams of stardom.
California also has its dark side, there is a large problem with drug abuse throughout the state of California. Many of the states residents have fallen victim to drugs such as cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine. They use these drugs to escape from reality, for some to increase there energy, for others to relieve them physical and/or emotional pain. Regardless to what drug is being used and for what purposes, many California residents have found themselves addicted and hitting rock bottom. It can be hard to stop using ‘cold turkey’, this is why many drug addicts reach out for help from a drug rehab center.
Addiction Takes Over
Many begin using drug recreationally, for increased energy or to take them away from reality. Others are trying to cover up emotional and/or physical pain through drug use. For a period of time the drug work, every thing seems OK, as if the drugs are making things better.
No one plans for addiction to happen but once their bodies begin to get use to the regularity of the drugs being processes through their bodies they begin to crave more and more. A tolerance develops, require larger doses of the drug to achieve its desired effects. As ones tolerance grows their cravings grow stronger, they get to the point of not being able to function and “to feel normal” with out the drugs.
Many experience withdrawal symptoms such as muscle and bone pain, twitching, the sweats, nausea, diarrhea and vomiting. Each drug has its own withdrawal symptoms, some more severe than others. These symptoms of withdrawal along with the severe drug cravings can make it seem almost impossible to stop using. Many fail when attempting to stop on their own, continuing the destructive pattern until the hit rock bottom and realize it is time to seek help.
Hitting rock bottom is typically the biggest wake up call for someone addicted to drugs. The find themselves at a point of being completely taken over by the drugs, they are no longer the same person as before they started using. Friends and family may have given up, the drugs do not only affect the addict, they affect everyone and everything around the addict. For some family and friends this can be to much to handle, watching their loved one kill them self can be extremely traumatic.
Drug addiction easily becomes a top priority, their children’s needs are no longer first. Typically the children are removed from the home to protect them from the dangers of their drug addicted parent(s). Along with priorities, work is no long one of them. Many drug addicts lose their jobs for not showing up, going to work high and many other reasons. When they are not working, paying bills is no longer a priority, what little money they do have goes to feed their addiction. Soon to follow is loss of housing, homeless living off the street.
If this is not a wake up call hitting rock bottom then the next step is death. Killing themselves for a drug. Most get to this point and realize that their destructive behavior is not going to change with out the help of the drug rehab center.
