What is dependency?

Dependency is the physical or psychological need for certain addictive substances, such as:

  • Alcohol ;
  • Tobacco ;
  • Caffeine ;
  • Cocaine ;
  • Heroin ;
  • Cannabis.

It is characterized by excessive consumption of these, despite the knowledge of its harmful effects. We can also associate it with certain activities such as video games, shopping, sex, or even sport.

According to the WHO (World Health Organization),addictive behavior combines three elements:

  1. The strong and repetitive urge to consume an addictive substance or to practice an activity ;

  2. Tolerance to high doses ;

  3. Showing symptoms of a withdrawal syndrome after depriving yourself of the substance or having stopped the activity.

The different types of addiction

There are several types of dependency among which we can mention:

Chemical type

Behavioral type

What are the causes of drug abuse?

There are many factors related to addiction, we can list them as follows:

  • Genetic factors: Some people are genetically more likely than others to become addicts. This is because of a defect involving the genes responsible for the genesis of dopamine receptors and other receptors ;
  • Social factors: The influence of surrounding people, the family, and the cultural environment and how it perceives the consumption of addictive substances. Some religions or sects see drug abuse as a sacred ritual ;
  • Psychic factors: Over 50% of drug addicts also have mental health problems, such as anguish, anxiety, or depression.

Other factors may also play a role in the development of addictive disorders among young people, including:

  • The presence of a drug addict mother or father ;
  • Financial problems and family troubles ;
  • Experiencing discrimination (racism, sexism, or homophobia) ;
  • Being a victim of violence (psychological, physical, or sexual).

What are the consequences of drug abuse?

Addictive substances have harmful effects on health. Its harms differ depending on the type of addictive substance consumed. For example, tobacco causes many cancers. As for Alcohol abuse, it kills brain cells, decreases visual acuity, and causes esophageal cancer. Alcoholism can also cause high blood pressure, diseases of the liver, pancreas, and stomach.

Users of opioids, cannabinoids, amphetamines, psychoactive substances as well as cocaine also suffer from several issues. This is because these drugs lead to sexual dysfunction, fertility difficulties, heart diseases, mental disorders, lung cancer, eye, and ear disorders and even diseases such as AIDS or hepatitis.

Psychotropic drugs can have devastating effects on health. These drugs can be fatal if an overdose occurs. Their consumers are predisposed to have high blood pressure, brain vascular strokes, heart attacks and may even border on suicide.

Fortunately, drug abuse is not an unresolved issue. Some people have regained control of their lives after receiving drug treatment in Istanbul.

What is detoxification?

Detox is a word that means "to rid the body of toxins". It is also a period during which a person abstains from any addictive substance.

During withdrawal, different strategies are used depending on the nature of the harmful substance that the patient abused of. For example, alcohol withdrawal can cause seizures with irreversible damage. So, depending on the withdrawal syndrome, antidepressants or other medications may be reduced depending on the intensity of the symptoms.

When drug addiction therapy is carried out professionally and skillfully, the only side effects the patient may experience are:

  • Sweating ;

  • Nausea ;

  • A split vision ;

  • Migraines ;

  • Insomnia.

A patient is not forced to suffer during his detox, it is supposed to allow him to get better, return to his normalcy and prepare for his therapy.
