Am I a Drug Addict?
We know that regular, heavy use of psychoactive chemicals and frequent impairment have a negative impact on people’s physical and mental health. Whether you are using drugs to deal with pain or increase energy, many people have trouble regulating their medications. If you wake up in the morning and need increasing amounts of stimulants, opiates, or both in order to feel normal, this is a sign of addiction. Drug addiction changes brain chemistry making it more difficult for people to solve problems, meet expectations at work or school, and live life to the fullest. It increases the risk of social, medical, and psychological issues. Addiction is characterized by an uncontrolled dependence on psychoactive drugs regardless of the consequences associated with drinking. Like many other health concerns, addiction is easier to treat when detected early; however, many addicts go to great lengths to conceal their dependency. These are a few early signs of drug addiction:
- Daily consumption
- Impaired social and occupational functioning
- Inability to find joy without drugs
- Drug-related violence
- Absence from work or school
- Legal difficulties
- Arguments with family and friends
- Blackouts, binges, and benders
- Drug use when drinking
- Complete loss of control
- Taking drugs in ways that aren’t recommended
Without access to addiction treatment, an addict will use drugs to avoid dealing with the consequences they experience because of their drug use. The types of drugs we most commonly see at Avedis are combinations of stimulants, opioids, and sedative-hypnotics like benzos and alcohol. Examples of these include:
- Stimulants (including cocaine, amphetamines, and meth)
- Opioids (including fentanyl, oxycodone, and heroin)
- Benzodiazepines (including Xanax, Ativan, and Klonopin)
- Alcohol (including beer, wine, and liquor)
What Is a Stimulant?
As the name suggests, stimulants cause activity in the central nervous system, creating an energizing effect. They also increase the availability of dopamine, a feel-good chemical in the brain. Examples of stimulants include cocaine, amphetamine, and caffeine.
What Is an Opioid?
Opioids suppress the central nervous system, slowing a person’s heartbeat, breathing, and movement. They also promote a sense of euphoria regardless of circumstances and block signals associated with pain and discomfort. Examples of opioids include fentanyl, methadone, morphine, Demerol, Dilaudid, and oxycodone.
What Is a Sedative-Hypnotic?
Sedative-hypnotic drugs (including benzos and alcohol) are central nervous system depressants that reduce anxiety, dull the senses, and prevent convulsions. Examples of sedative-hypnotic drugs include alcohol, benzodiazepines, and tranquilizers.
