Drug Addiction - The disability and its cure

Author: Tim Beyers

Drug addiction is indeed a very strong disability that has taken the entire world in its firm grip. Although man has always relied on the chemicals present in natural substances to cure him of his ailments, it is not an unknown fact that the soothing effect of the same can soon become a deadly addiction that can ruin a person both physically as well as psychologically. Biologically speaking, our bodies react to these drugs and make us feel in a state of euphoria, which soon becomes a habit, and one can't stay away from the same.
This ability knows no age, race or color, and can be spread to anyone, from a school going student in Africa to a person in his 40s in the USA. In case of medicated drug addictions, this disability basically happens when we take drugs just to feel relaxed, and the same soon begins to harm us, as excess of everything is bad. The consequences can be depression, feeling of uneasiness whenever that drug is not taken for a few days, and failure of organs in the body. Going on a deeper level, this disability is actually a psychological one, as the body thinks it can't go on without the drug.

Thanks to the advances in medical sciences, this disability can now be cured easily with the help of hypnotherapy. This type of treatment aims directly at the patient's mind and uproots the very reason of the problem, i.e., the need for such drugs. It conditions the mind of the person suffering from addiction and takes it away gradually over a period of time by removing its need from the subconscious. However, there is no one-size-fits-all approach here, and hypnotherapists need to assess each patient individually to know which is the area they exactly need to target. However, one thing is for sure, that this method works quite well in ridding the person of this disability.

  1. I haven't heard too much about hypnotherapy for drug addiction. Can you recommend any good studies or articles on the subject?
