A drug is any type of substances that causes a change in an organism’s physiology or psychology when consumed. Drug Addiction is a common neurobiological disease that adversely affects one’s brain and body. Integrated treatment is required to overcome it. The effects of drug addiction are beyond description. It has mental, physical and psychological effects.

Drugs have economic effects too. A drug addict eventually isolates himself from his family and friends. Drugs take us to hell disguised as heaven. Addiction makes a person too selfish to see the havoc you created or care about the people whose lives you have shattered.

Life gives everyone a second chance. Everyone is worthy of recovery. Drug addiction confines a person in the never-ending darkness that he, himself, can’t flee. They need help to come back in life.

Recovery is not a race. So you should feel guilty if it takes longer time than you intended. Recovery needs sacrifice and hard work. It sometimes is painful. But regaining life and hope is worth any pain.
