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.

As with many crimes and addictions one of the strongest weapons available is prevention and this is why alcohol prevention posters have been introduced into society.  Instead of waiting for our children to become alcohol dependent or to be involved in an accident or crime involving alcohol we should be taking proactive measures to stop it happening.
By teaching children and their parents about the dangers associated with alcohol we could well be saving their lives.  Without this educational schooling of the dangers, there is every chance that our child or children could become one of the five million people who suffer from the progressive illness that is alcoholism.
Whilst you may be thinking that children don't pay attention to posters warning them of dangers, we must take every chance we have to try and educate them that alcoholism is a real danger and there is a real possibility that it could effect them.
