Taming addiction responsibly is important if we are to bring up a healthy generation

Taming addiction responsibly: Strong leadership and involvement from the top

When an organization is based on strong leadership where all the top managers are taking responsibility in taming addiction responsibly at their work stations, their subject/juniors will always reciprocate. This can be a very powerful way of keeping addiction to check at workplaces. With such great involvement, the following are possible:

  • Visible, active commitment from the board;
  • Establishing effective ‘downward’ communication systems and management structures;
  • Integration of good health and safety management with business decisions.
  • Engaging the workforce in the promotion and achievement of safe and healthy conditions;
  • Effective ‘upward’ communication;
  • Providing high-quality training.

Taming addiction responsibly: Assessment and review

  • Identifying and managing health and safety risks including the alcohol and drug abuse
  • Accessing (and following) competent advice
  • Monitoring, reporting and reviewing performance.

Addressing health and safety should not be seen as a regulatory burden: it offers significant opportunities and benefits which may include:

  • Reduced costs;
  • Reduced risks;
  • Lower employee absence and turnover rates;
  • Fewer accidents;
  • Lessened threat of legal action;
  • Improved standing among suppliers and partners;
  • Better reputation for corporate responsibility among investors, customers, and communities;
  • Increased productivity, because employees are healthier, happier and better motivated.

We must appreciate that the power to succeed is in the ability and willingness of your workforce to deliver. This willingness can be impaired by alcohol and drug abuse badly. And that is why when it comes to addiction in the workplace, leading from the top is not an option but a must. The problem that can arise to defeat this initiative could be when the top managers and directors are the ones struggling with the scourge. If this is the case and it is quite common these days, then the organization must seek help immediately for her senior managers. These are the drivers of the economy of your organization and therefore drugs or alcohol must not be the reason for their underperformance. According to the experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, many highly ranked organizations have gone under receivership because of alcoholism and substance abuse.

Perplexing substances patterns

Perplexing substances patterns

Perplexing substances patterns will always be there if timely action is not taken

Perplexing substances patterns: Treating sexual addiction alongside drug abuse

When examining the perplexing substances patterns and how they are used by people seeking help for a sexual addiction complications, it’s evident that the two are closely linked together. Various research has estimated that between 40-60% of people struggling with sexual addiction also meet the criteria for alcohol or drug addiction. And according to the experts from AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the leadership of Doctor Dalal Akoury MD it is evident that many people suffering from sexual addiction problems have also admitted to using substances in order to deal with, or escape from, the pain caused by their sexual behavior. Besides that, it is also very common that many people are currently using substances to get over their inhibitions in order to engage in sexual behaviors that might be uncharacteristic for them if they were not drunk or high further explaining the significance of multi-addiction.

We must, therefore, seek for information by way of investigating how multiple addictions can feed into one another. This is very important because it is possible that individuals may use one of their addictions to mask or dismiss the other addiction and this could be influenced by various reasons including fear and shames especially those elements that are considered shameful addiction. Like for instance, an individual may deny having a problem with sexual addiction and insist completely that their problematic sexual behavior is only caused by intoxication. The truth of the matter, in this case, may be that the drugs or alcohol are merely concealing the pain and shameful acts that are associated with the sexual addiction thereby helping the person to be spared from the emotional consequences of his or her actions. By the same token, both addictions may work on intensifying one another in such a way that the person only engages in their sexual addiction under the influence of alcohol or drugs. These rituals then serve to protect the addiction and ensure that patterns of use are stable and predictable and this can be very dangerous if not dealt with expeditiously.

Perplexing substances patterns: Addressing the whole addictive process

A major concern with the treatment of substance use disorder alone is that untreated sexual addiction often precipitates a relapse of substance use. Dealing with one addiction while ignoring the other may end up intensifying the problem that has not been addressed. A good example would be when a person in early recovery from a substance addiction turns to sexual performance enhancers in order to continue the ritualized sexual behavior that was previously enhanced by the substance use. This sexual behavior can continue to be problematic for the individual. The individual may continue to feel a sense of shame and pain.

Therefore, recovery is about addressing the entire addictive process, not just those associated with a particular substance or behavior. The addictive process, whether related to sexual behavior or substances is often characterized by a pattern of secrecy, cognitive distortions, and rituals. Consequently, recovery from addiction regardless of type would involve embracing and attempt to live a life of honesty, authenticity and emotional growth. All these are attainable with professional guidance from the experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center.

Childhood substance abuse

Childhood substance abuse

Childhood substance abuse is on the increase and the time for solution is now

Childhood substance abuse: Don’t give up hope

The fight against drug abuse will not warn until we recognized and address childhood substance abuse from the very beginning. If you’re going through trial moment with your addicted child to drugs, be encouraged that you are not alone and you can always find somebody to talk to. I must agree that it is not a good experience to go through and that is why as professionals from AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the leadership of Doctor Dalal Akoury MD we want to share with you some experiences other parents have gone through in dealing with child addiction to alcohol and drug addiction. As a veteran addiction expert doctor Akoury will be sharing with our experiences of past clients so that we can develop the culture of learning from other parents about children addiction.

Over the past two decades, doctor Akoury has been very instrumental in offering solutions to all people across the globe and in her experience, she came across one client whose story will be very useful for many parents with addicted children. According to this client, about five years ago their son was 27-year-old and was so much addicted to alcohol drinking that finally led to the usage of other strong drugs (cocaine to be specific). For more than one year they were in the dark about his new habit until he was out of control and that is when he lost his job this really caught our pants down because of his life and that of our grandson the client said. We could not believe how ignorant and blind we were until it all started to make sense when our son was consistently broke, weird phone calls, not showing up for family events, his actions, and his physical appearance. At this point, the reality down on us and we tried to help him by enrolling him in treatment programs one after the other. It was difficult because the response was very discouraging but we kept telling him how much we loved him. In solidarity, we began attending recovery meetings.

Childhood substance abuse: Learning the consequences of addiction the hard way

To cut the long story short it reached a point when we realized that it was beyond our control and we were prepared for the worst but even as we were in that situation, we still told him how much we loved him even though at this time we also needed to take care of ourselves. And so very painfully we detached with love. Our house was still open for him and he would come for meals and to shower but he could not live with us anymore, nor would we give him any financial assistance. As fate would have it he who was never taught by his parents would be taught by the world and so he was arrested and we did not bail him out. He was so angry with us, but we still maintained our love for him. He was sentenced to go to a treatment program. He had only the clothes on his back, not even a pair of shoes, and it was winter. We did not give him anything but told him to call when he was settled in his new home and that we still loved him. At this point, he knew he was losing his family and possibly his son. That was about four years ago. Today our son has gone through treatment, is working on a recovery program and has custody of his son. We all take it a day at a time. We want to thank doctor Dalal Akoury and her team of experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center for their professional insight that has brought transformation to our son even if it was through the hard way. You can make yours easier by contacting doctor Akoury today.
