Addiction is one of the health problems in our society today. There are many kind of addictions but drugs and alcohol are the top chemical addiction that we have today. Alcohol addiction is very common to people who drink alcohol. Drinking alcohol at early stage of your life can likely make you as an alcoholic. As a young person drinking alcohol can make you alcoholic because nobody will guide you the right amount of alcohol that you should drink. While small amount of alcohol can be beneficial to our body for health reason, drinking too much of it will make you dependent. As a drinker you never realized that you are addicted to alcohol already because it becomes routinely to you to drink every day.
Drug addiction is another addiction that we should not take for granted because it is very dangerous. This addiction like alcohol can lead to crime like stealing and even killing. Most of the reason for drug addiction is peer pressure from classmates and friends who are addict already. Curiosity is another reason for addiction. I have many friends who are now addicted to drugs and alcohol and all of them lost their focus. They lost their ambitions and drive in life.
I believed that it is not too late for them to reclaim their life. Detoxification is the answer to this problem. They should visit and stay in a rehabilitation center to clean themselves and get an advice from doctors on how to start their life after leaving the center. Substance Abuse TreatmentCenter in St. Louis, MO is a center that helps people with addiction problem. They are run by specialist in addiction like drugs and alcohol. Aside from addiction of alcohol and drug they also counsel their patient which is very important because it is needed after the recovery.
