No one intends to become an addict. So how do substance abusers, alcoholics, sex addicts, and over eaters become addicted?
Once introduced to addictive substances, or issues, patients will develop physical and emotional dependencies that are extremely difficult to stop and can lead to death if not treated. Millions are becoming “legally” addicted because of over prescription of pharmaceutical drugs, mainly narcotic pain killers, from their trusted family physicians and unknowingly transforming themselves into addicts.
There’s becoming a blurred line between addicts who get their high on illegal street drugs such as cocaine, heroin, and other opiate based narcotics, and those who are getting unnecessary prescriptions of oxycontin, percocet, and vicadin, and other legal drugs. Often popping pills like jelly beans, “legal” addicts can hide behind the false pretense that because their drugs are from a doctor they must be ok, after all a doctor wouldn’t do anything to harm a patient.
As seen in the documentary film, American Addict, there is a huge business surrounding the health care profession and prescription drugs, with billions of dollars being made by, not only the pharmaceutical developers of the drugs, but the some of the doctors who are prescribing them.
Dr. Dalal Akoury addresses this phenomena on her television show, Your Health is Wealth with Dr. Akoury, with frequent guest and creator/producer of American Addict, Dr. Gregory A. Smith.
Quick Addiction Recovery: A Comprehensive Addiction Program
Many selected health care practitioners are recognizing that addiction and recovery is related to dysfunction in brain chemistry and imbalance of the neuroendocrine system resulting in enhanced cravings and worsening addictive behaviors.
There is now help for addicts that goes beyond the scope of the traditional 12 step programs and in patient rehab centers, offering addicts quick, and relatively painless methods of recovery. NER (NeuroEndocrine Restoration) is the perfect solution to those addicts who are determined to become clean.
Providing not only a safe and quick detox period, NER restores the balance in brain chemistry, and combined with nutritional therapies and maintenance programs to address the spirit, mind and body connection, patients are seeing a long lasting success in controlling their particular addictive behavior.
Dr. Dalal Akoury says,
“Just like any other disease or disorder out there, vulnerability to addiction depends on person-to-person. Your mental health, genes, social environment, hereditary, all plays a very important role in you being addicted to drugs. If you have a family history of addiction, chances are that you will also be exposed to drugs and will soon become addicted.”
