CAUSES
Drug addiction is caused by environment.A few important environmental factors that may cause drug addiction are bad peer,influence and troubled domestic background.When young people remain in bad company and do experiment s in the name of adventure ,they may fall a prey to drug addiction.The people who are dissatisfied and discontented to their lives may resort to drug addiction in order to seek an escape from responsibilities of life.
WHATS THE REAL PROBLEM?
The most important problem that comes in this regard is the rehabilitation and recovery of a drug addict.In many countries,addicts and their families consider it a taboo to share their problem with others.They feel embarrassed to talk about it for the fear of being declared an outcast.
SOLUTION
Rehabilitation centers are the best places for the recovery process of the addicts.The other factor that contributes in the rehabilitation of a drug victim is proper counseling.The sooner it is done the better it is for the victim.The counseling process must continue even after the drug addict is rehabilitated because of the dangers of relapse.

  1. Great post here Friend. Truly, drug addiction is considered a taboo topic in a lot of countries, and people often find it hard to speak about it. In addition, I want to add that, sometimes, there is a problem that leads people to abuse drugs, whether it is trauma from the past, an event that keeps happening or something like that. The underlying cause has to be addressed for the person to ease up on drug addiction. I think the best practice is for the person to seek help, but sometimes seeking help can be like forcing a horse to the stream and trying to force it to drink, because if the person does not put what they have learned at therapy into use, the therapy would not work. A great way to get them to use what they have learned is to put them in the company of other recovering addicts, they can have others to speak to who understand exactly how they feel and who want to recover, and this can inspire them to want to recover. Another great dimension to assisting someone to get out of drug addiction is by introducing them to God. You see, no matter what a person is going through, there is no one that can help them the way that God can. God would be with them and walk them through the process. Whenever they need to talk, they can take their struggles to God in prayer. There is nothing that God cannot do. As we humans are not just physical beings but spiritual beings, anything that affects us, we need to fight it on both the physical and the spiritual level.

    God says in Isaiah 54:17
    No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall confute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.”

    The Bible says in Ephesians 6:12
    For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

    God says in Isaiah 41:10
    Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
