Prescription

Drug Addiction and Treatment

These are very often prescription medications prescribed to alter mood and treat various current psychological conditions. They can have a synergistic effect when mixed with other drugs and/or alcohol and can result in severe addiction and withdrawal when used differently than prescribed.

Cocaine/Crack

Addiction and Treatment

In order to sustain a high, cocaine is often used in a binge pattern by being taken repeatedly in increasingly larger doses over a short period of time. This inevitably results in addiction.

DXM

Addiction and Treatment

Dextromethorphan (DXM) addiction occurs when sufficient dosages are repeatedly used to achieve intoxication. DXM is legitimately used in a therapeutic dosage (10-29mg every 4 hours) to treat coughs and colds, while addicted users of this psychotropic substance can use 250-1500 mg at one time.

Heroin

Addiction and Treatment

This drug rapidly induces a state of relaxation and euphoria. Addiction to heroin is common as it blocks the brain’s ability to feel pain, and is often used in an effort to manage physical and emotional pain.

Marijuana

Addiction and Treatment

Dependence occurs when the brain adapts to large amounts of the drug by reducing the production of, and sensitivity to its own endo cannabinoid neurotransmitters. These are involved in physiological processes including appetite, pain sensation, mood and memory as well as mediating the psychoactive effects of cannabis.

Methamphetamine (meth)

Addiction and Treatment

Methamphetamine addiction results from the strong desire to use it because it creates a false sense of happiness, well-being and confidence. It is highly destructive as it burns up the body’s resources very quickly.

Fentanyl

Addiction and Treatment

Fentanyl addiction is becoming more and more prevalent across Canada. There is a good deal of press regarding fentanyl use due to the number of overdoses.

Sex

Addiction and Treatment

This is a progressive intimacy disorder characterized by compulsive sexual thoughts and acts. Over time, the addict usually must intensify their addictive behaviours.

Gambling

This is an impulse control disorder. People with a gambling addiction often have other behavior or mood disorders. Many abuse substances, have attention deficit disorder, or depression.

Eating
