Help for Drug Addicts
For an addict, drug abuse has serious consequences. The most serious consequence is that prolonged drug use can change the brain in fundamental and long-lasting ways.
Eventually, it becomes difficult to derive pleasure from other normal activities, such as sports, food, or sex. After repeated drug use, you reach a point when deciding to use drugs is no longer voluntary. Scientists have proof now that drugs literally change your brain. It's as if a "switch" goes off in the brain. It is during this transformation process that a drug abuser becomes a drug addict.
