Finding Similarities Between Health and Life
Drug abuse and drug trafficking has become so rampant having teenagers as its main victims. Teenagers fall, victims of drug abuse, when attempting to go through the wobbly bridge between childhood and adulthood. It is at this stage that they become vulnerable in decision making and choosing between the right and the wrong. During adolescence stage, youths lack life experiences and often they are not prepared for the consequences of the choices that they make. There are many reasons that make these youths turn into abusing drugs. Peer pressure is the top factor that influences the youth into drug trafficking as it gives them the desire to feel hire and special like their fellow peers who often make them feel inferior. Some parents often assume that their children are too young to understand whatever they are doing and learn slowly by slowly and thus they end up becoming victims of drug abuse due to lack of proper molding from their parents. Curiosity by some of these youths of trying and exploring new things also contributes to them engaging in drug abuse as they get less supervision from their parents and guardians. Others believe that indulging in abuse of drugs is a way of having fun without knowledge of the effect abusing drugs such as taking alcohol would impair their judgment and lead them into danger. However, with all these challenges facing the youths and other drug abusers, it is important that they are taken care of and taken into rehabilitation centers to get help in stopping drug abuse. After months of rehabilitation, it is also important to take these victims in the rehabilitation centers for drug detoxification. This helps them in a number of ways such as;
Enrolling of victims to the drug detoxification programs enables them to curb withdrawal as a side effect of stopping drug abuse. Victims that access these detoxification programs are given medications that prevent the rising of side effects from the drug they have been abusing. Sometimes side effects from abused drugs may develop into life-threatening situations that may put victims in danger, however, with the proper care from their loved ones and medical practitioners would help them successfully overcome them.
It is very difficult for a victim undergoing rehabilitation to stop abusing drugs completely. At times these victims develop cravings for the drugs they have been abusing tempting them to use them secretly. However, with the drug detoxification programs in place, victims are given guidance and counseling and are also encouraged to follow the instructions they are given in order to avoid being tempted to use the drugs. We should, therefore, offer great support to our loved ones who have fallen victims of drug abuse by enrolling them in the drug detoxification programs so that they may get help in overcoming the abuse of drugs.
