Where there is a problem there must be the spirit of seeking for solution to the problem at hand. Without solutions being found the problem may escalate into even much more bigger problems further complicating the initial problem that could have been dealt with easily if somebody cared to seek for the solution.

As it has always been the case, there is nothing good about drugs no matter the justifications users may have. All we get from drugs is problems and problems all through. Alcohol consumption for example has serious depressive effect on it individual’s users more so when it is mixed with other substances like amphetamines. The consequences of such combinations are never good and users may experience reduced symptoms from both substances thereby causing them to continue their habit of abuse. Besides that the combination can lead to an irregular heartbeat, spasms, headaches, kidney disease and much more. That is why working with the addiction therapists and other experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center to get help is highly recommended. Nonetheless what many people and particularly non-addicts often struggle to understand is that addiction is never about the drug of choice itself. On the surface it would appear that alcoholism or sex addiction stemmed from an intense love of alcohol or sex. Professionally this is hardly the case. Doctor Akoury explains that addiction represents a deep and unattainable craving-a mental, physical, and spiritual longing. It is however very important to appreciate that the item or behavior being craved is never the issue because the problem is the insatiable need.
The complexity of addiction is one that will continue to be a subject of discussion for sometimes. We actually need to understand that addicts are people who live with a craving they cannot meet on their own. They feel out of place in the world, and they are uncomfortable in their own life. Besides that as they seek for solutions of their frustrations they are likely at some point find that a particular substance or behavior gives them the release they’ve been looking for. This often offers to them temporary solution and many at time the elements that does this may include elements like alcohol, food, drugs, sex, gambling, or codependent relationships. The craving therefore encompasses their life and to them there is no life without fulfillment of the urge. Doctor Akoury confirms that given that addiction is the outward manifestation of this internal need, it is not uncommon for addicts to suffer from multiple addictions. Drugs and alcohol are a common combination just in the same way alcohol and food. Once addicts get into recovery, they often find a host of other addictions they never realized they had. They begin to see that they’ve spent most of their lives trying to escape from life and that anything that promised to help them cope with life (no matter how destructive) was worth a try.
Naturally this would be the source of great angst for the addict. Admitting alcoholism was hard enough, now there’s the food addiction and the promiscuity and the inability to stay away from the casino. The individual is left feeling helpless in the face of so many debilitating conditions. It therefore seems as if a normal, functional life is impossible.
As experts from AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center would put it, the timely treatment for multiple addiction complications is possible to every willing, hopeful and honest people. One must first be willing and kick out the element of denial in his/her mind, they must also be very hopeful since this will keep them going even when challenges come their way. With the two practiced the individual must also be very honest with himself or herself during treatment. And like we have already mentioned for an addict suffering from multiple addictions to get well, the first step is to realize that there is hope. If you can recover from one addiction, you can recover from several. Note that there are no special powers required beyond willingness and honesty. When addicts relapse, the common cause is a failure to be honest with themselves and others. We appreciate that it may be hard to attack several conditions at once. In fact most addictions will require the help and from support groups and professionals. Suffering from multiple addictions could mean several programs and multiple meetings each week. However this may not be the only approach. It is important for the addict to be well connected to his support network, but it is also important for him to begin reentering his life. He will need to establish a work life and he will need to work on restoring relationships.
Doctor Akoury says that being honest and with the help of professionals from AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, the addict can begin to categorize his addictions. It may interest you to note that many addicts find that despite suffering multiple addictions, there is usually a primary offender. Take for example, one addict may realize that he had a problem with alcohol but besides that, he was also grossly obese due to compulsive overeating. When he began to get help for his food addiction and he dealt with the issues underlying his insatiable urge to eat, his compulsion to drink vanished. He realized that he drank as a part of his addiction, but that food was the true offender. When he got clean around food, alcohol ceased to be an issue. There are so many other examples we can give and this will be very helpful for you. Therefore if you need to know more for your own good, seek audience with doctor Dalal Akoury today and your life will never be the same again.
