Is such a vital requirement in aiding recovery. You have to go "all the way" to achieve the desired result. Don't spoil the individual when sent home for short spells. Don't openly display past suspicions or new found trust. These are factors that can trigger the relapse of the individual.
Being such a major aspect to recovery, families should also get their houses in order by adjusting their lifestyles. Instilling an Islamic ( Religious ) ethos within the family unit is a must. Salaah (prayer) and other codes of Islamic or other religious practice should be adhered. Imagine the 'recovery' returning home after re-entering the spiritual stream, only to find the home environment lacking in providing an atmosphere conductive to encouraging and continuing his/her new code of life.
Drugs Addiction occurs when a person surrenders to a substance or activity that takes control of his/her life and destroys the individual if he/she does not seek assistance.
Denial is the main defense mechanism used by addicts and families and can be defined as the inability to see or accept a problem as real. An addict has no chance of recovery as long so he / she or their respective families are still in denial.
The practice of taking drugs without proper medical supervision is called drug abuse.
A person who indulges in drugs for a while may not be able to stop without experiencing dangerous physical effects that could lead to possible death. Such a person is said to be physically dependent.
Not all medical drugs cause drugs addiction but many people find that they want to go on using the drug. The belief that they will get ill if they don’t have these drugs and find it hard to resist these drugs. This is psychological dependence.
With many drug types, a person initially only needs a small amount to get the desired effect, but with continuous use the body becomes used to the drug and more of it is needed at a time to get the same effect. This is called tolerance. Chasing the “original high” could lead to death by overdose.
