Substance abuse obstacles and cancer put together can only add more injury to the already difficult problem

Substance abuse obstacles and cancer: Alcohol use and alcoholism

In my quest to address the problem of substance abuse obstacles, it is becoming a trend that every time this topic of addiction is mention very really will it go without touching on alcohol consumption. Experts across the globe including doctor Dalal Akoury MD, President, and founder of AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center agrees that alcohol is the most addictive and abused drug and one that causes most of the health problems we go through today. Having said that I want to put emphasis on this by repeating this point that most people understand that heavy alcohol drinking can cause health problems, however, what many people may not know is that alcohol consumption can raise their cancer risk. Several cancers are as a result of drinking alcohol and this is what is going to form the basis of discussion in this article. If you want to be enlightened about the effects of alcohol and cancer, then keep on the link and read on for much educative and informative experience. And if you’re struggling with alcoholism, grab this opportunity and schedule an appointment with doctor Akoury now for the commencement of your recovery process that will leave you free from all the implications of alcohol abuse.

Substance abuse obstacles and cancer: Types of cancer linked to alcohol use

As discussed alcohol is a known cause of different kinds of cancers. Such cancers include:

  • Mouth
  • Throat (pharynx)
  • Voice box (larynx)
  • Esophagus
  • Liver
  • Colon and rectum
  • Breast

Besides the above alcohol may also increase the risk of cancer of the pancreas and for each of these cancers, the risk increases with the amount of alcohol consumed.

Cancers of the mouth, throat, voice box, and esophagus

Alcohol consumption is no doubt contributes the highest risk of these cancers. Drinking and smoking combine raises the risk of these cancers much more than the effects of either drinking or smoking alone. This might be because alcohol has the ability to act as a solvent, helping harmful chemicals in tobacco to get inside the cells that line the digestive tract. Alcohol may also slow down these cells’ ability to repair damage to their DNA caused by chemicals in tobacco.

Liver cancer

Research has proved that long-term alcohol use has been linked to an increased risk of liver cancer. Regular, heavy alcohol use can damage the liver, leading to inflammation. This, in turn, might raise the risk of liver cancer.

Colon and rectal cancer

Alcohol use has been linked with a higher risk of cancers of the colon and rectum. The evidence for such a link is generally stronger in men than in women, although studies have found the link in both sexes.

Breast cancer

Even a few drinks a week is linked with an increased risk of breast cancer in women. This risk may be especially high in women who do not get enough folate (a B vitamin) in their diet or through supplements. Alcohol can affect estrogen levels in the body, which may explain some of the increased risks. Drinking less alcohol may be an important way for many women to lower their risk of breast cancer.

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.

Taking responsibility in taming substance abuse: 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 substance abuse at their work stations, their subject/juniors will always reciprocate.
