Isn't This......


          Promoting prevention is a process where the onset of substance is limited or when the potential development of problems associated with using psychoactive substances is as avoided as it can be. Prevention endeavours may focus on the individual or their environments.

          It can be stated that the most powerful strategy route for promoting prevention is apparently through a risk-focused approach. This approach demands the specific recognitions of risk factors for drug abuse, Recognitions, by which risk factors have been productively addressed, and where application of these processes to embrace acceptable high-risk and general population samples in controlled studies.  

          The expert authors on this topic evaluate risks and protective details for substance abuse, analyse a number of approaches for substance abuse prevention with high-risk groups, and make recommendations for research and practice.

In order to be capable of supporting the fight against substance abuse, people have to know what substance addiction is and what ways they can help a person to recover from addiction.

          Substance addiction is a long-lasting disease characterized by compulsive, or uncontrollable, “drug seeking and use despite harmful consequences” and changes in the brain, which can be long-lasting. These changes in the brain can lead to the harmful acts seen in people who use drugs. Drug addiction is also a relapsing disease, which means returning to drug use after an attempt to stop.

          The way to drug addiction starts with the voluntary actions of taking drugs. But “over time, a person's ability to choose not to do so becomes compromised.” Seeking and taking the drug becomes irresistible. This is mainly due to the effects of “long-term drug exposure on brain function.” Addiction influences parts of the brain, involving motivation, learning and memory, and control over behaviour.

          The general public should at least have an idea about how to help others fight drug abuse and inform each other about the knowledge they have on promoting prevention. Also, it should be noted that pulling these people out from drug abuse requires strenuous effort, contemplating to the fact of this disease being a relapsing one.
