Opiate Addiction Coaxed by Underlying Symptoms

Opiate Addiction - The Bergand Group

“Fifty percent of Americans have a friend or family member with opiate addiction.” This is a statistic that we absolutely need to move away from, to reduce, in order to help those people to heal.

The Root Causes of an Opiate Addiction

Those who are struggling with this addiction typically began with the abuse of prescription pills and moved, gradually, to heroin. Many of these people unfortunately are labeled as those with a “dual diagnosis,” or people who have both an addiction and some instance of mental illness. This is all the more reason to put a serious plan in place to address the root causes of these situations so that its victims can be helped toward recovery.

“One of the most important things to understand about addiction is that it is not about the drugs.” People who have an opiate addiction may fall into its trap as a result of the nature of these pills, but there are a lot of complications down the road that push them to continue use and seeking out the drugs. Whether it’s to ease the pain of home life, to avoid the symptoms of withdrawal, or something else, there are a lot of reasons that a person might not be able to hold themselves back from use.

Treatment, then, should focus on the underlying reasons that drive people toward an addiction beyond the addictive nature of these substances. It’s really only in drilling down into these other causes and ‘motivations’ that professionals can begin to move patients from addiction into recovery.
