Drug and Alcohol Abuse. Cure or Prevention?

Drug and Alcohol Abuse Helpline

Is cure or prevention the best answer to drug and alcohol abuse?  It probably seems a pretty obvious answer to most of us.  Most of us would rather prevent abuse of any substance than have to try and come up with a cure for it but unfortunately the fact is that a massive amount of people become dependent on drugs or alcohol and there is no known cure for either.  That is to say, there is no tablet you can take, there's no medicine the doctor can give sufferers.

Firstly, we must remember that alcohol or drug addiction is a disease which can not be treated in the traditional medicinal sense of the word.  Strong will and stubbornness are the most important factors in recovering from addiction as well as having invaluable support from friends, family and loved ones.

An alcohol treatment center can offer support for both sufferers and their families but it really is down to the individual to help themselves through the rehabilitation process.

The first step to prevention is identification.  If we can identify that someone may have or will have a problem with drug and alcohol abuse the first thing we should do is remove temptation.  Unfortunately, it isn't always that easy.  Many alcoholics or drug users conceal their addiction and are very good at it.  Of course, unless we suspect someone it is highly unlikely that we will be looking for any of the signs of drug and alcohol abuse and that is why many cases often go undetected until it is too late.

With so many injuries and deaths caused by drug and alcohol abuse it is essential that we try to prevent addiction that can lead to this.

In psychology, the term attitude is a very important factor when ascertaining certain aspects in social psychology, and this leads us to substance abuse attitude testing.  Attitudes are considered to be a subjects response to certain attitude subjects.  These attitudes can be either positive or negative.  Substance abuse attitude testing is, as the name suggests, the testing of attitudes toward substances and the taking or consumption of those substances.
Implicit attitudes are attitudes which we are not consciously aware of but are discovered through the use of experiments based on a subject's response time to certain stimuli.
The use of substance abuse attitude testing means that doctors can test the subliminal response from substance abusers and ascertain both the extent of the addiction and whether it has improved.
