Acute addiction times in childhood: Addiction is a preventable condition

Ideally what many people may not know is that the acute addiction time in childhood. This is the time when parents have more control over their children hence it is the best time to lay strong foundations in achieving the goals of addiction recovery effectively. Many studies have since established that adolescence is the most critical time for preventing substance abuse this is because of the very obvious reason including the risk of addiction being greater than any other period in life. Having said that I am almost certain that the next question that you are likely to ask is why is this so? To explain that doctor Dalal Akoury is registering that it is because at this particular point of time when the young people’s brain is primed and ripe for taking risks which include desiring and willful experimenting with drugs and alcohol among other substances. Nonetheless, one fact that we must all take seriously is that, because the brain will still be developing during this time, it is more vulnerable to the harmful effects of drugs and alcohol. Besides that experts, at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, a facility established by doctor Dalal Akoury say that because of this some teens are even at greater risk of becoming addicted to those substances because of the inclination of genetics, family history, trauma and mental health or behavioral problems.

Acute addiction times in childhood: Increased risks between the stages of life

From the above explanation, what it really means is that young people while passing through the stages of life like adolescent, will certainly be at an increased risk of addiction if they have a family history of substance abuse, childhood experiences with abuse, neglect or other trauma, mental health disorders like anxiety and depression, low self-esteem, poor academic performance and problems with bullying in school. One point that we must all take note of is that the description outlined above are common with very many children and what that communicates is that it is important for parents to be involved in their children’s life more consistently, objectively and know them better. And remember that the pathway from substance use to addiction is not cursed on stone, prevention is possible. Remember that the good teaching and upbringing by parents, teachers or mentors can prevent or delay the onset of substance use in our children. Doctor Akoury is very categorical that irrespective of the nature of drug in question, when the right approach is taken from the beginning, then the children and teens has higher chances of remaining sober for the rest of their lives. That explains why children who attain the age 21 without indulgence in smoking, abusing alcohol or using drugs are virtually certain never to do so in the near future.

How well then do we get to know that our children are beginning to show signs of addiction to alcohol and other substances? The experts from AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury will be very resourceful for you if only you can schedule an appointment with her today.

Showing good example from the top on addiction: Pooling together from all angles

In normal day to day life there will always be people in the position of leadership and subjects to be lead. These are positions that we will always have in life and there is very little we can do to avoid them. And if you think you can then you are wrong, take a look at this illustration of a family where there is the husband (male) and wife (female) and their children, in such a setup there will be some elements of leadership in different roles performed by each member of the family. That is just to explain why some people will be leaders and others will be the subject to be lead. Now any good leadership, is one where leading by example from top is always the secret to success. In this article however, we want to look at the best ways of showing good example from the top on addiction. This could be applicable everywhere including workplaces, families, learning institutions and many more.

Our focus is however going to be on taking good leadership about alcohol and drug addiction in our work places. Previously we dealt with addiction in workplaces but now we want to see how good leadership can be an effective tool for effective management of the scourge of addiction.  Experts from AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, under the able leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury says that any effective health and safety performance in a work environment can only come from the top trickling down.

An organization where there is the board of directors as the top decision making organ, it is always very important that members of the board have both collective and individual responsibility for health and safety as one of the pillars of the organizations’ policy. When it comes to alcohol and substance abuse, directors and boards need to examine their own behaviors, both individually and collectively, against the guidance given and, where they see that they fall short of the standards set by them as policy makers, then they must held themselves accountable to change what they do to become more effective leaders in health and safety matters. This is the only way through which they can be good implementers of the policies they formulate and that explain why they should always be seen to be leading by example from the top on addiction and any other matters of policy.

Showing good example from the top on addiction: Why directors and board members need to act

The question as to why the senior officers of any organization should and must always be on top of everything in terms of offering good leadership is one that many leaders often want to ignore by hiding under the umbrella of delegation. I agree that delegation is one of the leadership and management strategies, but it is important to note that the person delegating is responsible for any failures that may occur. Therefore the policy makers bear the greatest load in ensuring that all the health and safety policies are observed to the latter. And even as you choose to lead by showing good examples, it is equally important that on matters addiction, you should also lead by being the first in scheduling for an appointment with doctor Akoury for help.

Addiction prevention hypocrisy and the endless pain

Addiction prevention hypocrisy

Addiction prevention hypocrisy and the endless pain has not helped to deliver the much needed breakthrough

Addiction prevention hypocrisy and the endless pain: Cigarette smoking prevention

The damage caused by cigarette smoking can’t go unnoticed in any state, community or family. Serious health problems are registered daily in our health facilities thanks to the legalized usage of the substance. The irony in all this is that despite the knowledge of dangers posed by tobacco products, our authorities are spending billions of money in trying to bring this disturbing behavior to manageable levels a problem they themselves are facilitating daily by dissing out licenses for people to do business in tobacco products. This is the greatest statement of addiction prevention hypocrisy I have ever seen or heard. Because of this, we want to engage the experts from AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center to help us understand the hypocrisy in handling cigarette prevention. Dear friends the truth of the matter is that cigarette smoking kills many people globally.

America is one of the biggest victims when it comes to cigarettes addiction today and if we are still going to be kind with cigarette for whatever reason be it for revenue reasons or fear of loss of employment opportunities, then I can confirm to us that we are not being sincere with our efforts. Am saying this because you do not worn a child about the dangers of any poison then you serve him or her with the same poison.

Addiction prevention hypocrisy and the endless pain: The derivatives found in tobacco

It is true that most people are well informed of the dangers of smoking including the serious effects it has on their health including the increased risk of contracting other serious health complications like cancer and also cause problems during pregnancy and make you more likely to suffer from a stroke or heart attack. That is why when we are making emphasis on the addiction prevention hypocrisy in handling cigarette smoking we understand the real consequences of neglecting the facts. The impact of cigarette smoking will not only be visible on the basis of the life threatening health conditions, but also from very simple elements that you are likely to ignore. Like for instance, the byproducts found in tobacco products will deprive the skin of oxygen and vital nutrients. This deprivation can lead to a pale and uneven skin tone, meaning that when you start smoking at a tender age, changes in your skin can begin to be seen sooner than you can imagine. Remember that when you take a puff of cigarette, in essence you’re causing permanent damage to your skin.

This habit can cause early wrinkles, and it accelerates the overall aging of your skin. After only 10 years of smoking, it’s already possible to see the effects in the faces of young adults. Now from that explanation you can see that such people will dig deep into their finances to correct the facial and harm caused by the smoke while at the same time bracing themselves for the major consequences of cigarette smoking like the skin cancer and other cancerous effects which are associated with this habit. We are being hypocritical in dealing with this substance usage because we can narrate vividly the dangers, we can make financial cost estimations, loss of manpower during working hours while smoking and the list is endless yet we have refused to be bold enough to classify this substance as an illegality in our laws of the land. Because that is taking longer, you can redeem yourself today by calling doctor Akoury to help you professionally on the best quitting procedures today.
