Treating addiction without pills – without prescriptions. It all starts out so harmless, many addicts will tell you. Then swiftly, the drug sweeps them off their feet, drags them through the mud, places them in a tight choke hold, and before they know it, they’re ready to tap out.
Not only does it effect their life, but it also effects the lives of family and freinds. It’s what we call – collateral damage.
So what happens next? After they get humble with themselves, and decide that this addiction is bigger than their ego, they locate a treatment centre, attend a program, feel like everything is going well, get their life back on track, and then they return home addicted to Paxil or Zoloft. Huh?
Does this make any sense? Substitution therapy does not work! Replacing one drug for another is in my opinion crazier than the addiction.
I’m sure I will get flack from every psychiatrist and psychologist out there, but who cares. These are people’s lives we are talking about, not lab rats.
The real quacks in our society are the ones who are quicker to their prescription pads then a gunslinger to his pistol at high noon.
Sure anti-depressants, and anti-psychotic drugs have their place in society, and I’m not going to pull a Tom Cruise and say that all drugs are bad, but more work needs to be done by these Doctors who think that every problem can be solved with a pill, because it doesn’t take a rocket scientist, or a psychiatrist for that matter, (wink, wink) to figure out that; no they cannot!
If someone has clinical depression, bi-polar, or schizophrenia, then absolutley without question – these conditions need to be treated, and these medications can and do work, when properly applied.
But what if it’s drug induced cognitive impairment? Then these self proclaimed miracle drugs do not work, and in fact, these drugs are actually impairing the function of the brain, and brain chemistry evern further.
Get it? It’s the old chicken and the egg syndrome. Drugs for clinical symptoms GOOD, drugs for drug induced symptons BAD! But the real question of the day is; which came first? The symptoms, or the drugs? A key missing question from many doctors diagnostic protocol in determing medication or treatment. It is much easier to simply fill out a prescription than to actually pick up the phone and try to find a bed at a drug rehab clinic for your patient.
If you are addicted to drugs, and you want help, do it naturally. Find a holistic treatment program, one that will rebalance your brain chemistry, flush the toxins out of you system, and resotre your health back to normal without wasting too much paper and ink, and getting you hooked on big pharma.
