Why Middle East Residents find Confidential and Effective Drug Addiction Treatment at The Cabin Chiang Mai
Drug Addiction, or substance abuse, is a dependence on a legal or illegal drugs or medications. It is a common misperception that addiction is a sign of weak will or lack of self-control and that a person who is addicted should just “decide” to quit. Drug addiction is, in fact, a chronic brain disease that causes compulsive drug seeking and use, despite the harmful consequences it has on the user and those around them.
Drugs contain chemicals that affect the way nerve cells in the brain send, receive and process information. The brain builds a tolerance to these reactions and progressively needs more of the drug to feel pleasure or well-being. Long-term drug abuse causes changes in the brain that affect your judgment, cognitive abilities, memory, decision-making and behaviour control. The longer the abuse, the stronger the physical dependence and the more difficult it is to get clean.
Legal drugs are substances that are approved by law for sale or consumption. In terms of addiction legal drugs usually refer to prescription medication or over-the-counter medication. Legal drugs can and are used in illegal ways. Anytime that someone takes prescription medication in a way that is not approved by their doctor, it is considered substance abuse. Prescription drug abuse is becoming a global epidemic, especially the abuse of opiods. The fact that they are legal, more socially acceptable, readily available and highly addictive makes prescription medication one of the most abused drugs available today.

Illicit drugs are substances that are prohibited by law. This includes amphetamine-type stimulants such as ice or shabu, heroin, captagon, and marijuana / hashish, among many others. These drugs are addictive and have serious negative effects on the mind and body. The illicit drug trade is a major global business and is associated with organised crime, violence and illegal activity. Use of illicit drugs can lead to risky behaviour and serious consequences such as hospitalisation, contraction of HIV or other diseases and arrest.
