Opiate addiction is much different than that of other substances that are abused and can cause addiction. Opiate addiction is a serious problem in our country and will become an even bigger problem in the years ahead. The persistent use of opiates and is thought to be a disorder of the central nervous system. Though opiate painkillers are prescribed by physicians, opiate addiction is an insidious medical disease. But since opiate addiction is far more than a behavior problem, treatment requires more than just therapy.

To me Reverend Maclean’s final sermon in A River Runs Through It means that everyone will have someone the love go through something terrible, but we don 't know how to help. There are multiple ways that you can think about this. The issue at hand could be mental, physical, short-term, or long-term problem. Reverend Maclean 's sermon means that giving help can be very frustrating and at time hard to figure out. Mental help is the hardest to figure out.
My family has known about my great grandpa's dementia since I was a little girl. I did not know about his condition until I was about eleven years old, that was when it became too rough to hide. Dementia is a chronic disorder caused by brain disease marked by memory disorders, personality changes, and impaired reasoning. Growing up I thought it was natural for my papaw to lose his memory the same way it was natural of him to lose his hair. Papaw had fourteen siblings and the last four of them had this disorder.

“Breaking Barriers” Jackie Robinson once said “During my life, I have had a few nightmares that has happened to me while I was awake…”. It is tough having a family member that you love dearly go through so much pain. My grandfather had a stroke about 4 years ago. Ever since then he has been slowly dying.

When I first noticed my Step dad had problems with drinking I was about eleven years old during the time. Though I must admit it wasn 't a healthy place to be at the time I was living in Phoenix,Arizona with only my step dad 's family nearby to call and my mom, of course but at the time I couldn 't really expect help from her, at the time she was heavily addicted to gambling. Anywho it wasn 't a very healthy relationship. Though I was never physically abuse or anything like that I was emotional abuse having been a first born and having had a very shielded childhood.

Before starting the psychiatry module, I had very little understanding of the extent to which our early life experiences can impact on our mental health as adults. My personal belief was that mental illness as an adult was the result of a genetic or biological predisposition that emerged as a result of a stress or adversity in adulthood. However, epidemiological research suggests that the onset of psychiatric disorders in up to one third of cases may be attributable to adverse early life experiences1. Taking this into account, it raises the questions; do both positive and negative early life experiences affect our mental health as adults? If so, how do they do so?

My mom and I exchanged letters, because we never really had the chance to talk over phone.
In “The Fall of the House of Usher” Rodrick, although rational at the start, by slow degrees becomes insane about his house, and about his dead wife/ sister. By the end of the tale he is very deranged, and mentally disconnected. The tale thus represents the fall of reason, the inability of the rational mind to make sense of a chaotic universe. At the beginning one can tell that Roderick has unusual mental properties.
