Drug addiction is a medical condition.
Drug addiction can be fatal. The best way to get better is to ask for help. Sometimes, it can be confusing. Where can you turn for help? Friends and family don’t always understand what you are going through. So, speaking to someone who does understand can make all of the difference.
There are many resources available.
There are recovery groups and meetings all over the world. These meetings are usually free and open to all to attend. There are also a full spectrum of treatment options available. There is inpatient treatment. This can be long term. Or, it can be short term. Sometimes it may involve medications. In other cases, treatment may be abstinence based, with little or no medication involved. However, for some forms of addiction, seeing a specially trained doctor may be best.

Why is it so hard to ask for help?
It is easiest to put off getting help just one more day. Addiction is a disease that uses your own thinking against you. It causes you to lie to yourself and justify. Hence, you justify putting off doing something about it. You avoid asking for help. But, it is important. You need to get started. So, pick up the phone and call. Making the phone call is the first step to end suffering and to get your life back.
