Alcohol dependence can be hard to diagnose because many symptoms overlap with other conditions such as depression and anxiety. However, if you have been diagnosed with alcohol-based addiction, your brain has adapted over time by changing chemicals in response to its use.
Though not as addictive as other narcotics, benzos can become a problem if misused. They’re the third most frequently abused drugs among American adults and adolescents that have been tracked by studies in recent years–with misuse leading to dependence and potentially fatal overdoses.
Treatment usually begins with detoxification, which an individual should never attempt on their own because doing so can be potentially deadly. Detox with proper medical supervision can keep you safe, alleviate the symptoms of discomfort, and give you a higher chance of success from relapsing.
Heroin is a powerful illegal drug that can be produced from the opium poppy. It’s highly addictive, and overdose has been known to be fatal in some cases. Most cases involving heroin addicts tend to involve prescription opioids.
Marijuana is becoming more popular than ever before with medical and recreational use legalization. People who take marijuana as medicine are less likely to develop an addiction, but those who consume recreationally run the risk of developing dependence later on down the road if they’re not careful about how often they consume it.
Methamphetamine is a highly addictive stimulant that affects the central nervous system. Crystal meth looks like glass or rocks, and it has a structure similar to amphetamines.
Opioids are a powerful class of painkillers that are one of the most commonly prescribed types of medication for dealing with post-surgery discomfort. Over time as you continue taking these medications regularly, your body becomes desensitized and stops responding – leading many people down an addiction path.
Xanax (Alprazolam) is a benzodiazepine that can be habit-forming and addictive. Despite its effectiveness for anxiety, Xanax may lead to misuse or abuse in those who take it recreationally as well as an addiction over time if taken at usual doses too often without proper supervision from doctors.
