After a while, users need higher doses to get the same effect. This leads to dependence and addiction for those users of the drug. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, 43 percent of ecstasy users become dependent on the drug. Users are aware of the negative consequences of ecstasy, but their dependence on it prevents them from stopping to use the drug. However, Ecstasy is used medicinally to relieve victims of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Also it states on CDC.gov in the Unites States about 440,000 die from cigarettes every year while 49,000 of those are from secondhand smoke. Marijuana when used in moderation is actually helpful the body. It can cure some diseases and also can be used as a natural stress and pain reliever. Weed does not cost nearly as much as cigarettes and alcohol. Opposed to cigarettes and alcohol you cannot become addicted to weed.
There are two main treatments behavioral treatment and medications. Behavioral treatment helps addicts change unhealthy ways of thinking, counseling and sometimes psychotherapy. Medication treatment might sound wrong, why give them other prescribed drugs?. The addict suffers withdrawals symptoms and to help them stop using opioids, we supply them with other none dangerous drugs which close to the same effect. Treatment is possible, we just gotta reduce the epidemic among our young
It doesn’t matter what drug is being abused, the path back to sobriety can be walked at a Narconon rehab facility. There are specific aspects of addiction that are the causes of a person being trapped in that situation. When these aspects are addressed and handled, a person is freed from the need to keep abusing drugs or alcohol. It has proven unnecessary to consider that one is “always going to be an addict.” It is also unnecessary to “take one day at a time.” Sobriety can be lasting without a continuous, daily
Which summarises that the use of drugs cannot be prevented but yet, death and misuse can be controlled. Fulton Gillespie shows in his writing that criminalisation will not help drug addicts but legalising drugs will. It can be seen in this example, “I am convinced that he would still be alive today if all the drugs had been legalised and controlled, because he would have no need to steal and would not have been in prison, the heroin would have been controlled and thus not toxic”. The same applies to Rupert Turner as he discusses to support and not punish those in need of help. This can is clear when Rupert states, “We pour millions into fighting the drug war, a war that cannot be won.
Until 1940, doctors could not find a cure for this disease. After that year, doctors discovered a treatment for primary, secondary, and early latent syphilis. The most used antibiotic to treat this affliction is penicillin and it is extremely effective. It only requires a single intramuscular injection of penicillin to those stages, and for those who are allergic to penicillin they can use other antibiotics such as tetracycline, doxycycline and other antibiotics. Those antibiotics are less effective than penicillin.
Harm reduction refers to the practices, programs, and policies that are used to mitigate the harms associated with substance abuse in individuals who are unwilling or unable to stop. Harm reduction is used to prevent harm, rather than preventing drug use itself, and focuses on individuals who continue to use drugs. Examples of harm reduction include needle exchange programs, methadone clinics, and supervised injection facilities. The Goals of Harm Reduction Harm reduction is based on the perception that substance abusers are unwilling or unable to stop using drugs. Therefore, the goals of harm reduction include prevention and prevention of the overall level of drug use.
If we need to use drugs that are prescribed by the doctor, we should use them, how they are supposed to be used. Don’t be a zero, be a DARE hero to me means that we need to do something about people taking drugs and be a number instead of people being a zero and not doing anything. Marijuana, meth, heroin, and inhalants can all cause death or medical issues. We learned in the role-playing that our friends can make us do things we don’t want to do. That is called personal or peer pressure.
The book “Jekyll and Hyde” shows how the physical and social effects of drugs can last a lifetime. According to “Frequently Asked Questions About Drugs”, “A study in 2012 found that students subject to mandatory random student drug testing reported less substance use than comparable students in high school without such testing(Frequently Asked Questions About Drugs)”. The previous quote shows how enforcing random drug tests can lower the amount of drug users in high schools. Drug tests need to be enforced in more high schools because, as shown in Jekyll and Hyde, an addiction to drugs can physically hurt a person, destroy friendships, and lead to more trouble later in life.
Legalize marijuana Marijuana some people think it needs to be outlawed, while others think it needs to be fully legal. Marijuana is proven to be helpful in the medical field by letting people with immense pain not feel as much pain for a length of time, but it also helps people relax and enjoy life more. If it has a positive benefit in the medical field then why must it be outlawed just because it has been known to be very addictive it not like it will harm you if you know self control and don’t light up every second you can. It only hurts people with no self control. Marijuana should be fully legal in all 50 states.
Coupled with heroin usage, Dreifuss advises the U.S to try and reduce usage of a drug very similar fentanyl. Fentanyl is a “Powerful synthetic opioid analgesic that is similar to morphine but is 50 to 100 times more potent” (Dreifuss). While it is equally important to stop opioid usage of all types, focusing on the most dangerous drugs can save lives, which is the goal of Dreifuss’s plan. Additionally,
(Johnson, 2001). A heroin treatment program used in federal institutions is called Methadone Maintenance Treatment also known as (MMT). MMT works by injecting heroin addicts with methadone, which is a synthetic analgesic, drug that actives the same opiate receptors as heroin by using this treatment the individual is less likely to experience withdrawal symptoms, some participants have reported
a. The National Institute of Drug Abuse states what legal and illegal drugs make up opioids. It also states that legally prescribed opioids are generally safe when taken for a short amount of time and are prescribed by a doctor. It described that opioids can be misused by being taken in a different way, in larger quantities or without a doctor’s prescription. Also talks about the drug that can reverse an opioid overdose if given right away, which is naloxone (Abuse).
Although the use of medical cannabis is still illegal under federal law, as of 2015, twenty-three states and the District of Columbia have legalized its use. It is used to treat numerous conditions including: chronic pain, muscle spasms, nausea (often from chemo), appetite of those with AIDS/HIV, insomnia, neurological disorders, and glaucoma. The use of cannabis in the medical world is a controversial topic to begin with. The use of it for minors is even more so. Medical marijuana has been shown to decrease the number of seizures for those who have epilepsy.
