Addiction is involuntary servitude to a substance or behavior, a vicious and tenacious kind of habit. Habitual thought or action establishes a neural pathway in the brain. The more the habit is reinforced by repetition, the more the neural pathway amplified: what begins as an indistinct footpath can develop into a neural superhighway. The additional insult of a mind-stressing substance distorts brain function and chemistry, and inflicts a wide variety of deleterious effects on virtually all body systems – sooner or later resulting in intractable alteration of gene expression, if not gene structure and information content.
Addiction can begin at a very early or very late age, but it most commonly takes root in youth from the ages of 10 to 25 years.
In our treatment protocol, we combine the latest scientific knowledge, safe natural supplements, body-brain-mind therapies and prescription medicine (only if needed). The addictive drugs have been shown to change the brain biochemistry and in some cases induce cognitive impairment. The urge usually causes permanent changes to the total person.
Our advanced, time-tested services include the importance of designing specific individualized treatments to balance brain biochemical deficits and rise above the magnetic pull of alcohol or drugs. We aim to provide lasting pleasure based food supplement compensations that provide energy, a low-fat diet, daily stress and anxiety management with fun exercises. This facilitates for lifestyle changes by altering gene expression in participants and may reduce cravings in future offspring. Every child has the potential to abuse alcohol and drugs. After living and observing many communities around the world, my first hand global observation is that addiction of any substance can begin as early in life as 3 years of age.
Tips for Preventing Drug and Alcohol Addiction among 10 to 25 year olds.
Drug addiction has a variety of causes and many contributing factors that affect 10 to 25 year olds. Usually addictions slowly take hold of an individual. Prescription addiction at the top of the list is followed by alcohol addiction. Often addictions are labeled as diseases. If the brain and body are slowly introduced to addictive substances, the genes may express themselves as disease entities. Early prevention and relaxed consistent neuro pleasure inducing compensation has proven to be effective for a life time as one travels through various transitions in life such as relational break-up, divorce, death or other tragedies.
Check for specific signs:
1) Know your child.
2) Observe early signs of drug abuse such as falling grades, weight-loss or appetite loss, changes in behavior, change in energy level, radical changes in clothes, hairstyle, rejection of former friends in favor of others.
3) Provide information. Address the drugs that relate to your specific audience, age group and demographic. Be caring and personable.
4) Example starts in the family. Parents have a responsibility to provide an example to their children in their lifestyle and providing for open communication about pros and cons.
