  • Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong | Johann Hari

    What really causes addiction — to everything from cocaine to smart-phones? And how can we overcome it? Johann Hari has seen our current methods fail firsthand, as he has watched loved ones struggle to manage their addictions. He started to wonder why we treat addicts the way we do — and if there might be a better way. As he shares in this deeply personal talk, his questions took him around the world, and unearthed some surprising and hopeful ways of thinking about an age-old problem.

One study examined the prevalent heroin use among soldiers in Vietnam. When they returned home, they gave up their addiction completely and abruptly. When individuals are motivated to make the change, not only is it more successful, but also long-term. Evoking this motivation to change is crucial.

Top 10 most disturbing transformation photos of people that were addicted to narcotics. Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg Other Videos You Might Like 10 Horrible Plastic Surgery Impersonations https://youtu.be/dumsWFVTc-k 10 Women You Won't Believe Exist! https://youtu.be/c5SKuiMrEHw Description: It’s hard to think of any drug prevention strategy more effective than simply being exposed to a real drug addict. Witnessing the degradation and deterioration of a drug abuser whose addiction has taken its toll offers a first-hand perspective on just how powerless certain people are against the potent sway of heavy drugs, not to mention the toll that they take on the body. In 2014, drug treatment assistance website Rehabs.com put together a graphic, stunning compilation of photos that captured the physical regression of chronic drug abusers through their head shots. This rather pointed effort, which gathered the mug shots of those arrested multiple times for drug- and/or drug-related offenses, served to highlight the potentially catastrophic health effects of drug abuse in a raw, visceral and impactful manner. Physical changes seen through these images include skin lesions, decayed or missing teeth, open sores and premature aging, among other noticeable symptoms. It is important to note that not all of the deterioration and facial change seen within these people is necessarily the cause of drug use, but illicit substances have surely assumed at least some responsibility for the visible toll taken on these 10 individuals. The Rehabs.com webpage aimed to serve as a source of education and inspiration, not only for those who came upon it but also for the addicts featured on the site. Lest anyone feel that the images are being used to shame, embarrass or exploit those in need of help, the website includes a disclaimer that not only invites users to request the removal of their photo, but also offers financial assistance for those seeking treatment. It also acknowledges that the images shown represent only the most extreme cases of drug abuse, but makes sure to mention that those featured in the images likely never anticipated such a slippery slope towards extreme addiction. The statistics on drug abuse are pretty stunning. In 2013, over 24 million people reported that they had taken illicit drugs or abused prescription medication in just the past month alone. One year earlier, more than 1.7 million people had been admitted into treatment programs for substance abuse. While certainly representing a staggering number, that doesn’t address the vast majority of drug users in need of help. And although statistics can be impactful in their own right, the personal cost of drug abuse is probably best represented in the faces of those most affected by it. Different drugs carry their own common side effects. Meth is known to cause facial wasting and open sores, cocaine can be an appetite suppressant and lead to weight loss, ecstasy often causes teeth grinding and even marijuana can age and pale the skin over time with excessive use. But even more than the symptoms of any one drug, the most damaging impact of substance abuse might be the mental side of the addiction, where recreating that high becomes a driving force in the addict’s life and leads to self-neglect. These 10 addicts wear the heavy cost of their drug abuse on their faces, plain for anyone to see.

Addiction is a neurological disorder that affects the reward system in the brain. In a healthy person, the reward system reinforces important behaviors that are essential for survival such as eating, drinking, sex, and social interaction. For example, the reward system ensures that you reach for food when you are hungry, because you know that after eating you will feel good. In other words, it makes the activity of eating pleasurable and memorable, so you would want to do it again and again whenever you feel hungry. Drugs of abuse hijack this system, turning the person’s natural needs into drug needs. The brain consists of billions of neurons, or nerve cells, which communicate via chemical messages, or neurotransmitters. When a neuron is sufficiently stimulated, an electrical impulse called an action potential is generated and travels down the axon to the nerve terminal. Here, it triggers the release of a neurotransmitter into the synaptic cleft - a space between neurons. The neurotransmitter then binds to a receptor on a neighboring neuron, generating a signal in it, thereby transmitting the information to that neuron. The major reward pathways involve transmission of the neurotransmitter dopamine from the ventral tegmental area – the VTA - of the midbrain to the limbic system and the frontal cortex. Engaging in enjoyable activities generates action potentials in dopamine-producing neurons of the VTA. This causes dopamine release from the neurons into the synaptic space. Dopamine then binds to and stimulates dopamine-receptor on the receiving neuron. This stimulation by dopamine is believed to produce the pleasurable feelings or rewarding effect. Dopamine molecules are then removed from the synaptic space and transported back in to the transmitting neuron by a special protein called dopamine-transporter. Most drugs of abuse increase the level of dopamine in the reward pathway. Some drugs such as alcohol, heroin, and nicotine indirectly excite the dopamine-producing neurons in the VTA so that they generate more action potentials. Cocaine acts at the nerve terminal. It binds to dopamine-transporter and blocks the re-uptake of dopamine. Methamphetamine – a psychostimulant – acts similarly to cocaine in blocking dopamine removal. In addition, it can enter the neuron, into the dopamine-containing vesicles where it triggers dopamine release even in the absence of action potentials. Different drugs act different way but the common outcome is that dopamine builds-up in the synapse to a much greater amount than normal. This causes a continuous stimulation, maybe over-stimulation of receiving neurons and is responsible for prolonged and intense euphoria experienced by drug users. Repeated exposure to dopamine surges caused by drugs eventually de-sensitizes the reward system. The system is no longer responsive to everyday stimuli; the only thing that is rewarding is the drug. That is how drugs change the person’s life priority. After some time, even the drug loses its ability to reward and higher doses are required to achieve the rewarding effect. This ultimately leads to drug overdose.

How to help an addict Click here for official Website: http://truthofaddiction.com/ Maybe you're looking for these topics: How to help an addict, how to over come addiction, how to overcome an addiction, help for addiction, help for addicts, help for addictions, how can I help an addict Repeated research tells us that most people who achieved long-term abstinence actually do it without the common or luxurious treatment facilities. One study examined the prevalent heroin use among soldiers in Vietnam. When they returned home, they gave up their addiction completely and abruptly. When individuals are motivated to make the change, not only is it more successful, but also long-term. Evoking this motivation to change is crucial. Website: http://truthofaddiction.com/special/ YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/TruthOfAddiction1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheOfficialTruthOfAddiction A common problem with addiction treatment is the use of confrontation... Many people have the perception that addicts are always in a state of denial... This is not always the case. Confrontation actually increases an individual's resistance to change. Problematic behaviors increase during confrontational periods of intervention as well. Just confronting someone to stop drinking actually leads them to drink more, when less confrontation is used, less drinking results. The truth is... Scaring Someone "Straight" Is Ineffective... Confrontation, the use of power or trying to pound views or truth into someone fails and causes greater problems... But these methods are all too prevalent in some AA, NA and twelve-step programs. Some treatment centers even have a name for it, “hot seat therapy” or “attack therapy.” According to one researcher, there isn't a single line of research showing successful clinical outcomes using the above mentioned methods. Is it any wonder that AA reports a whopping 80 percent dropout rate in the first year? Website: http://truthofaddiction.com/special/ YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/TruthOfAddiction1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheOfficialTruthOfAddiction The motivational factors within an individual produces long-term and sustainable change. Sure, an addict can be forced into treatment, but sooner or later he must make the decision. And scientifically backed methods can evoke this decision. The University of New Mexico conducted a study which examined different approaches when confronting alcoholics. Researchers determined that successful outcomes and long-term sobriety actually stemmed from the level of empathy employed, not confrontation. In fact, empathy toward the addicted loved one contributed to long-term positive effects up to 2 years following an intervention. How to help an addict https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9xGkqfhTI0
