Drug Intoxication

Drug Intoxication

Drug abuse and addiction can cause you physical and mental health problems. Some drugs can become a habit. Addiction can happen with a drug that is ordered for you or for someone else. It can also happen with other different kinds of drugs. Drug addiction happens when a drug is not used like it was ordered. The drugs may be abused to lower your stress or to make you feel better. A drug may be taken over and over without the need for it. In other cases, you may develop an addiction and feel a need for the drug. There are many things that may cause drug addiction. But, with the right care, you can recover and go back to living a healthy life. Recovery has many steps for finding better ways to deal with problems, other than using drugs. Care most often will use counseling. Other drugs may be needed and work best when used with other therapy.
