Lack of Control In Chemical Dependency
Chemical dependency forces you to relinquish control of your urges. The driving force of addiction, chemical dependency is a menacing illness that literally plays tricks on your brain to make you engage in self-destructive behavior, despite the best of intentions. You or your loved one can possess the strongest will and most steadfast resolve but still fall victim to chemical dependency. This is the same reason why so many people continue to relapse after attempting to stop taking drugs because of the chemical change that is created in your body and brain directly from the various chemicals in the drug of choice. This is the often overlooked or misunderstood trap of drug use. In the beginning you are in control of the drug, but, when the chemical dependency is triggered, the drug now has control over you.
The Large Role of Denial in Chemical Dependency
People often characterize denial as conscious behavior - something a person doesn’t “want” to see, hear, or believe. The truth is that the the term “want” has very little relevance when you are talking about addiction. The chemical process by which a person gets addicted to drugs or alcohol is not about intention, choice, or control. Denial often results from a chemically induced distortion of the brain function that inhibits a chemically dependent person from grasping the reality of their problem. Denial is thought to be the reason behind why so many people never seek out the help they need to achieve a lasting recovery from their addiction.
Chemical Dependency Treatment
Detoxification is always the first step in chemical dependency treatment. A professional licensed medical detox program will cleanse the drugs from your system and ensure you start off your chemical dependency rehab clean and drug free. The best chemical dependency treatment centers will include behavioral health therapy during the treatment process to examine the root of causes for your addiction and help you resist future temptations to relapse. Upon successful completion of your chemical dependency treatment you or your loved one will have regained the power and the control that the chemicals in their drug of choice had taken from while they were addicted.
