One of the good things about life is that it is full of choices and everyone is given the freedom to choose from the plenty that life can offer voluntarily and without any form of duress. This freedom of choice has however been abused by very many people, and even though people chose to abuse the freedom bestowed on them differently, one abuse caught my heart, soul body and mind. I am talking about the choice of substance abuse. We are living at a time when the freedom of mingling and socialization coupled with modernization and human right takes the center stage. The authorities who have been given the responsibility of caring and protecting their citizens have also let their subjects down by legalizing some of the most addictive and dangerous drugs including alcohol and cigarette. Even with the knowledge of the painful suicidal nature of drug addiction, these drugs are marketed vigorously in all the print and electronic media to the disadvantage of their users. While hospitals and rehabilitation centers are full beyond capacity, traders in these substances are laughing all the way to the bank. To be honest with you, it always not very easy to hear that a breweries firm or a tobacco manufacturing plant and their chain of distributors have posted a loss in any given financial year. Theirs is ever profit and annual growth from the previous performance year in year out. Now what surprises me is that do we really understand the painful suicidal nature of drug addiction? Let us seek for some answers from the house of experts from AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury who is one of the veteran addiction experts with several decades of professional experience in this discipline.

Doctor Akoury in her several decades of service delivery to her clients globally, is very emphatic that no one is born permanently addicted to the drugs the abuse. This is a treatable condition and no matter the duration one has been addicted or the magnitude of the quantity one uses daily, treatment is possible for a lasting solution for both the victim and their loved ones. When we are focusing on our lives, we often set certain objectives and put targets and time frame of delivery. These are good ways of ensuring that we are comfortable in our lives and at the same time being able to share our blessings with others. The problem that comes when one is into drugs is that, the voice of reason and concentration towards realizing these dreams and goals fades away as all focus in turn to the drug of choice. Professionally doctor Akoury is very categorical that we may absolutely not be able to achieve these objectives if we are not sober in our minds. Therefore to be sober we must all desire to stay away from all kind of drugs and drug related activities or influences. Collectively and individually we must make all efforts to ensure that our neighborhood is safe and free from any kind of substance abuse.

We must be our brother’s keepers at all times meaning that anyone who cares about an addict will have several concerns including some of the following:

The painful suicidal nature of drug addiction: The fear of committing suicide
Looking at the above mentioned elements of fear that are associated to drug addiction, the fear of committing suicide is one that is probably most scary. And to that effect, we want to take some time to addressing this concern objectively. To start us off suicide is a well-known risk for those suffering from mental health problems requiring special medical attention in the assessment and treatment of addiction. You must take keen attention on depression and other mood disorders because these are the primary indicators of risk factors for suicide. Besides this alcohol and general drug abuse are also influential in triggering suicide. As a matter of fact studies have established that alcoholism is a strong indicator even without being depressed and those suffering from drug use disorders are said to be about six times likely to commit suicide than the population not using drugs. It is however important to note that drug abuse does not only increase the likelihood that a person will take his or her own life, but it is also used as a means for committing suicide. Doctor Akoury is raising red flag that from the available statistics, the available evidence indicates that for every three people dying from suicide one of them will be as a result of drug influence and specifically the family of opiates such as oxycodone or heroin, or alcohol. Poisoning is another leading method used in suicide deaths and on this regard yet again miss use of drugs make up to 75 percent of suicide deaths due to poisoning. Does that sound good? Certainly NOT, Therefore as a community me must stand out to be counted because we all owe one another the duty of care, if we all pay our part soberly, then in just a very short duration, we will all be happily living in a community that is free from all kinds of addiction says doctor Dalal Akoury.
