Addiction is a complex disorder characterized by a compulsive use of drug or alcohol. People who are addicted feel an uncontrollable and overwhelming need for alcohol or drugs. Addiction causes functional and structural changes in the brain. When such changes occur, it becomes more challenging for a person to stop alcohol or drug addiction. Treatment involves psychotherapy and dealing with other psychiatric and social problems which leads to sustained recovery and a life without drug abuse.
The treatment includes organized inpatient or outpatient treatment programs, attending self help groups and counseling sessions. Therapies can help you overcome addiction.
There are a number of alternative therapies to help you recover from addiction.They include:
- Meditation: Meditation can help you gain your attention and remove thoughts that cause stress.
- Yoga: Deep breathing exercises can help you to manage stress.
- Acupuncture: Thin needles are inserted at the pressure points and this may relieve craving for drugs and reduces withdrawal symptoms.
- Spiritual Practice: Regular spiritual practice makes it easy to recover from the addiction.
Psychotherapy or personal counseling with a psychotherapist, is an intentional interpersonal relationship used by trained psychotherapists to aid a client or patient in problems of living. It aims to increase the individuals sense of their own well-being. Psychotherapists employ a range of techniques based on experiential relationship building, dialogue, communication and behavior change and that are designed to improve the mental health of a client or patient, or to improve group relationships (such as in a family).
