The Need for Controlled Detox
Unlike any other disease, addiction ravages the physical and mental health of not only its hosts but also the families and loved ones. Many substances used are so powerful that quitting them cold turkey could lead to serious health problems. For example, alcoholics and heroin users who abuse excessive amounts of these substances for extended periods of time are especially at risk for pain, sickness, and even cardiac arrest, or other acute withdrawal symptoms. For this reason, it is vital that a professional in a controlled environment monitors detoxification. If you are ready for something better, visit our detox center, and we'll help you get sober. We'll even present you with a range of options for inpatient and Los Angeles IOP treatment therapies.
Overcoming Societal Misconceptions
Because alcohol is legal as are prescription drugs, these often don't get nearly the same scrutiny as illegal narcotics do. However, it's the legal substances that are often the most potent and have the most potential to be lethal. Alcohol is one of the most toxic substances a person can put into his/her body, and it's perfectly legal. Indeed, the effects of alcohol on the human brain are catastrophic. These misconceptions equating legality to safety are dangerous.
Alcohol is a neurotoxin, and the brain is full of neurons. That is why many long-term alcohol abusers suffer from brain damage. It is also the reason why people under the influence of alcohol tend to be more out of control than people on other drugs. Alcohol attacks the frontal lobe of the brain; and the frontal lobe is the part of the brain that's associated with judgment, hand-eye coordination, and decision-making. Further, alcohol has been indisputably linked to many cancers.
