How do you help someone with addiction and depression? Everyone’s circumstance will be different, but knowing what you’re up against will be a great start. The phrase “Knowledge is power” is certainly true in this case. Facing the battle well-armed, you will be of more assistance to that person.
Drug addiction and depression often go hand in hand. This dual diagnosis makes everything more complicated because one may affect the other. If a depressed person is left untreated, they may find themselves reaching for coping mechanisms and self medicate to help them deal with this issue. Their depression brings the possibility of an addiction of some kind; drug addiction is a common one. When an individual is addicted to drugs, it can affect their mental and emotional stability and cause depression. What they are doing to soothe themselves can escalate their issues and even trigger new ones.
As more and more parts of our nation move into “stay at home” orders and normal movement becomes difficult, law enforcement and National Guard presence become much more prominent, and all of the other bits of loveliness that can come along with a crisis, daily life and habits are thrown into disarray.
A favorite restaurant for Friday night dinner is no longer open. A little thrift store that always has amazing treasures sits dark and empty. A park that was great for a run or walk is roped off. Life as you know it is different right now, and there are a million examples of how different it is. Some of them not so savory.
For addicts who are in the grip of their addiction, these tighter controls, increased law enforcement presence, and new travel restrictions can mean that their sources for supplying their drug of choice have run dry as well.
Detox is typically the first and highest level of care that an individual will receive when they seek the help of an addiction rehab program. Some individuals attempt to complete their detox at home, but home detox can be risky for a number of reasons. One of the major questions that often comes up when trying to determine whether to home detox or to admit to Compass Detox is “how much does compass rehab cost?” In order to fully answer this question, there are a number of aspects to consider.
What is Sobriety Worth To You?
It is easy to ask how much Compass rehab costs, but the monetary fees for treatment with Compass rehab is far from the most significant cost to consider. We would be ignorant to say that it isn’t a factor at all, but it is common for people to overlook the cost/benefit analysis. Have you thought about what will happen to your finances, career, and relationships if you don’t get clean and sober?
How to recognize signs of drug abuse and addiction
The answer is not a simple one, especially in the initial phase of drug consumption when neither the psychological nor the physical health of a person haven’t been disrupted, and they’re still trying to keep old habits and leave the impression that everything is fine. If you suspect that you or someone you love is having a problem with substance abuse, there’s a list of universally accepted symptoms.
According to the World Drug Report, 29.5 million people worldwide suffer from drug use disorders. Even the first use of an illicit drug qualifies as drug abuse. It usually starts willfully, and most commonly due to curiosity, boredom, stress or depression. Addiction is a strong urge to obtain the use of illicit drugs regardless of the consequences, and it’s a product of prolonged drug abuse.
Not everyone is equally strong and has the same willpower. Thoughts about drugs or alcohol are a common thing after detox, and they’re completely normal. If you, or someone you love still long for an addictive substance from the past, even after you’ve been officially “clean” for a while, don’t beat yourself about it. It’s important to understand the most common triggers and prevent them by minimizing the chances of responding to them. Here are some tips for relapse prevention.
