SAY NO TO DRUG ABUSES March 30, 2011 crizlai When I was young, I often visit my neighbors to play during my free time. I used to remember they had an uncle who was a drug addict. Being a young child, I could not understand the reason behind him being an addict. Though I felt a little scary about it, I still go to their house for a session or two of games. Sometimes, I do see some used syringes scattered underneath his bed. Since most patients are in the denial, it would be rather difficult for them to seek treatment during the crucial period, especially during that time when medication was not that advanced yet. If it would have been today, I would probably advise my neighbor to persuade her uncle to seek the required treatments. Nowadays, most rehabilitation centers do offer inpatient substance abuse treatment. At least, it would help those affected persons to eliminate their addictions and lead a better life. Overdosed of drugs or alcohol could lead to fatal diseases and many other complications. Thus, it would be great to stay away from them. Anyway, that neighbor of mine met his fate not long after. All I could remember was that an ambulance took his almost frozen body and never saw him again. I had never asked about his absence. I guessed he would have long gone by now. I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
