Rehabilitation centres in Johannesburg
Crossroads Recovery Centre is a rehabilitation centre in Johannesburg which specialises in treating various forms of addiction and drug addictions. It is important to understand what we mean by addiction.
While drug use may start as a seemingly harmless and voluntary act, in time it can develop into a compulsive and unstoppable habit. In the beginning, drug use minimizes emotional and physical pain. As prolonged use continues, it can develop into addiction- severely impacting an individual’s brain chemistry. When the brain begins to signal an intense physical need to continue the use of drugs, what once was recreational use becomes an urge that controls one’s life. When the use of chemical substances/narcotics becomes a compulsion that negatively affects every aspect of your life, you need to seek help. Side-effects of drugs, like diminished health, loss of employment, the estrangement of loved ones and mental and physical disorders are inevitable when drug rehabilitation is not initiated.
If left untreated, drug addiction can result in diminished health, job loss and the estrangement of loved ones. While drugs may offer short-term relief, extended drug use only aggravates an individual’s problems. Drug addiction can lead to a number of mental and physical disorders. If addiction is left untreated, unrestrained drug use will persist despite its overwhelming and often demoralizing consequences on individuals and their families.
When an addict is able to recognise the impact that their drug use has on themselves and others, they seek help.
