Drug Addiction Treatment

Drug addiction being an international problem which does not spare any nation should be adequately addressed and treated. For a successful drug addiction treatment the best approach is a holistic approach, which covers not only the medical and psychological aspects of the drug addict, but also covers the emotional and spiritual needs of the addict. For successful drug treatment or drug addiction treatment the role of psychiatrist is the most important as well as psychological counseling.  

The drug treatment of the addicts is not an easy task, as the addicts are usually not interested in getting good treatment and lead a drug free life. Many addicts can not even imagine a drug free life and to treat these drug addicts it is a gigantic task, which need coordinated approach of professional doctors, other technical staffs, supporting staffs, family members (of the addict) and friends of the drug addicts. The govt. help in addressing the social evil of drug addiction is very important. The help of former drug addicts is also very important to motivate the addicts and should be sought. Drug addiction is basically a social problem but the first step of management of the problem of drug addiction, is a medical management.

The drug addiction treatment is not complete without the drug rehabilitation. For drug rehabilitation, after successful drug treatment the govt., social workers play the most important role. Without good drug rehabilitation the rate of relapse of drug addiction (after successful treatment of drug addiction) may be very high. To reduce the relapse rate of drug addiction social activists and the govt. should play a major role with cooperation from the drug treatment centers.
