People who abuse drugs and alcohol do not set out to overdose, but rather feel the potency of the substance of choice induces. The euphoric ‘high’ makes you feel temporarily happy, relaxed and calm. All your problems seem to vanish, as you live in the moment.
However, as with all substances, the effect wears off. High levels of dopamine in the brain lead you to take higher quantities to feel the original effects. With each higher dose, you’re at risk of suffering overdose, seizures, coma and heart attack, depending on the substance you’ve taken.
Thankfully, we can help you overcome your addiction and take back control of your life. Your physical health, emotional well-being and mental health are factored into your treatment plan to ensure you receive the best holistic treatment. The first step is to admit that you need professional help to overcome your addiction.
