It’s time we took the curse off of going to drug rehab. Too many people still think that if you’re going to drug rehab you must be a criminal. That mentality is so old fashioned it’s right up there with the movie “Reefer Madness”. People become addicted to many different things these days. It isn’t always drugs, but even when it is, many times those drugs were prescribed. Do the classic drug addicts buying street drugs still steal to feed their habits? Yes, there is still that. But the world of addiction isn’t at all what it used to be. And even classic drug addiction has been decriminalized. So, let’s all get with the program.
The reality is as our society progresses it also develops additional issues that are a result of the pressure of adapting to modern life. Twenty-five years ago there was very little porn addiction, for example. Mainly because porn was not readily available. You had to go out of your way to get it and actually buy it. Today there is a large percentage of young men addicted to porn who grew up accessing it for free on the internet. That addiction works in the brain in essentially the same way drug addiction does. There are now many addiction treatment facilities that specialize just in this type of addiction, along with sex addiction and tech addiction. There are also gambling addictions, food addiction, addiction to work, exercise, video games, pain…the list goes on. In short, these days just about anything can become an addiction. It’s about what’s going on in the brain. It’s just where we are as a culture now.
