Danger Around Every Corner
Drug addiction is a powerful and dangerous force, most-likely the biggest obstacle to happiness and well-being that an addict will ever face in his or her life. Not only will the addict most likely develop a life-threatening dependency on their drug of choice, but in most cases the drug addict must procure these substances at great cost to their freedom and safety. Drugs like heroin or oxycontin/oxycodone when purchased on the street can end up in a felony charge if caught attempting to obtain the drugs or in possession of them. Furthermore, purchasing street drugs runs the risk of having them mixed or cut with other harmful chemicals. Many addicts have died just by taking “dirty” drugs. In the case of heroin, the exchanging of needles has the additional risk for the drug addict of contracting hepatitis or HIV. And yet, despite these very dangerous consequences that most addicts are well-aware of…they cannot stop.
Physical dependency on a drug makes it very difficult for the addict to take a chance at saving themselves from the clutches of addiction. Most addicts have heard the horror stories of addiction withdrawal. Almost everyone has heard of “someone” who died in detox. What many tend to forget is that more addicts die from the progression of their disease than do withdrawing from it. There is freedom from addiction for anyone wanting to take the first step.
