Why Go To Substance Abuse Treatment Programs?

If you are addicted to substances, have you attempted to stop using and stay stopped on your own? Have you maybe tried and never told anyone for fear that you might have to admit you have a problem? Although it may seem like it, you are not alone; many people are going through the same thing that you are today. Quitting is hard, why not get the help and support that you need to make sure you do it right this time around.

It is pretty simple; addiction happens because the chemistry of our brain is changed as substances are left to percolate on the surface of our brain cells for long periods. When you use substances, you feel good and maybe even forget about all of the bad things that are going on. Substances will:

  • Stimulate the Basal Ganglia – This area of the brain is the reward center. When you consume substances, you are exciting this area of the brain
  • Repress the Extended Amygdala – This area of the brain is responsible for your stress response. When you do drugs or drink, this area is put to sleep

Man discusses his struggles during his substance abuse treatment programsAs you continue to use to feel better, your brain cells will produce more receptors that will attach to the chemicals you are putting in your brain. The receptors are what cause you to feel good or bad when you no longer have substances. These extra receptors cause you to build a tolerance to the substance, and it takes more and more to feel the effects as time goes on.

When you stop taking the substance, these two areas of the brain being frantically signaling to our prefrontal cortex that you need more substances right away or you may die. This is how obtaining more drugs or alcohol and can become as important or more important than drinking water or eating. Can too much of a good thing be bad? I guess so.

The only way to overcome the powerful hold that addiction has over people is to suffer through the pain. You will need to learn ways to deal with not using. It can be very hard at first, and this is why it is best to seek out professional help.
