Overcoming Addiction - Know The Importance Of It!

Overcoming Addiction - Know The Importance Of It!
Drug addiction is one of the social menaces and in most people, what starts off as a result of peer pressure and trying to be cool ends up affecting lives significantly. It is not just social but also affects financial, physical, emotional, and social well-being. The small period of happiness given by the drug is followed by months and years of torment.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has identified that drug addiction causes chemical and structural changes in the brain, leading to dangerous and self-destructive behaviours. The brain s response to stimulus like pleasure, joy, happiness, and pain are altered with constant drug abuse. For instance, the neurotransmitter called dopamine, which makes one feel good, is usually produced by the brain in small amounts. However, drugs increase this level to 2 to 10 times more, making the person feel extremely high and happy. Since the body is unable to reach the highest level of happiness on its own, the dependency on these drugs to feel good increases.

Repeated use of the drugs leads to increased dependency, wherein the brain refuses to feel good without reaching those high levels of dopamine. The issue is mostly seen in teenagers and young adults but can be seen in any age group.

October 2 is recognized as National Anti-Drug Addiction Day and nationwide campaigns and drives are done to help people overcome addiction. One of the main reasons a drive this size is required is because of the social stigma attached to the problem. Most families shun away from recognizing it as a problem that can be easily treated, and so the affected person is sucked deeper into the problem.

Overcoming addiction: One of the main success factors for treating addiction is for the affected person to recognize that he or she is addicted and needs to get rid of the problem.

There are national toll-free helplines that are set up, which can guide through the whole program. This way, if required, anonymity is maintained and support for overcoming addiction is increased.
It involves a group effort involving the affected person, family and friends, medical and clinical personnel, and counselors in some cases.
Cognitive behavioral therapy: The person is made conscious of the change in behaviour and the way drugs affect it. Healthier patterns to be happy and joyful are discussed.
In most cases, the underlying reason for reaching out to drugs needs to be addressed also to prevent relapse.
Group therapies where the person makes friends who have faced similar issues and overcome the problem. This increases their accountability and commitment to getting rid of the problem.
Drug abuse is a national social menace and needs more free admittance and management.

All About Forensic Psychiatry
Forensic psychiatry is generally identified as a specialized offshoot of psychiatry, dealing with the calculated treatment and evaluation of mentally disordered offenders in secure hospitals, prisons and in the community. This branch of psychiatry requires an in-depth understanding and thorough knowledge of the connection between legality and mental health. Patients are generally those with personality dysfunctions, mental illness, psychopathic disorders, organic brain damage, learning disability and other conditions such as histories of abuse and traumatic experiences as well as substance abuse and misuse.

Nature of the work
The most important prerequisite of this branch of psychiatry is a secure and safe environment where the subjects are liable to legal restrictions. Evaluation and assessment may vary from highly secured hospitals and prisons to low secure units and community based services. Forensic psychiatrists must have a thorough knowledge of civil, criminal and case law because of their frequent dealings with criminal justice agencies and the courts. An important component of forensic psychiatry is risk assessment and evaluation. Forensic psychiatrists must be fluent and adept at handling patients during emergencies or routine situations. Moreover, they should be calm, composed and professional in their dealings especially with patients who display instability or violent and aggressive behavior.

The probation service, the prison service and the courts generally rely on forensic psychiatrists for expert advice, precisely because of their familiarity with preparing reports for mental health review tribunals and criminal justice agencies.

Imperatives
- Quintessentially, the obligatory role of a forensic psychiatrist requires:
- Ability to treat others with understanding and respect
- Ability to work flexibly
- Emotional resilience along with the ability to empathize with patients
- Anticipation and an inherent initiative to work in challenging situations
- Good communication skills

नशा मुक्ति के उपाय - Nasha Mukti Ke Upay!
नशा मुक्ति की पहल लगातार वैश्विक स्तर पर किया जाता रहा है. देखा जाए तो नशा करने वाले लोगों की संख्या भी विश्व स्तर पर बहुत ज्यादा है. ऐसे लोग समाज में कई बार खतरा बन जाते हैं. इसलिए नशा को छुड़ाना आवश्यक है. ऐसे लोग नशे के सेवन से पहले असामान्य रहते हैं और उसे पाने के बाद खुद को सामान्य स्थिति में पाते हैं. यह स्थिति ऐसे लोगों को पूरी तरह बीमार बना देती है. दरअसल नशे की लत लगना एक लाइलाज बीमारी है. यह कई बहाने से शरीर में प्रवेश करती है और धीरे-धीरे जिंदगी को अपनी गिरफ्त में ले लेती है. नशे की लत एक चतुर, शक्तिशाली और मायावी बीमारी है. आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से हम नशा मुक्ति के लिए उपलब्ध विभिन्न तरीकों पर एक नजर डालें ताकि एक बेहतर समाज का निर्माण किया जा सके.

आयुर्वेद में कई रोगों का प्रभावी इलाज उपलब्ध है. शराब छोड़ने के लिए इसमें कोई विशेष प्रवाधान तो नहीं है लेकिन शराब से होने वाली बीमारियों को दूर करने के उपचार किया जाता है. लिवर में सूजन, पेट और तंत्रिका तंत्र से जुड़ी बीमारियां के उपचार के लिए दी जाने वाली वाली दवाएं ही अन्य लाभ के रूप में शराब छुड़ा सकती हैं. जैसे ऐलोवेरा लिवर के लिए फायदेमंद है, जबकि अश्वगंधा तंत्रिका तंत्र और मस्तिष्क को पुष्ट बनाता है. सार्थक चूर्ण, ब्राह्मी घृतम आदि शरीर से शराब के जहर को कम करते हैं. इसके अलावा शंखपुष्पी, कुटकी, आरोग्य वर्धनी आदि भी दिए जाते हैं. शराब के विकल्प के रूप में सुरा का सेवन कराया जाता है. शराब के बदले मृतसंजीवनी सुरा 30-40 एमएल दी जाती है. लेकिन इन दवाओं का इस्तेमाल किसी चिकित्सक के परामर्श के बाद ही करना चाहिए.

होम्योपैथी में भी है नशा मुक्ति का उपाय-
होम्योपैथी में भी कई ऐसी दवाएं उपलब्ध हैं जिनकी सहायता से शराब और इसके प्रभावों को कम किया जा सकता है. ये दवाएं बीमारियों को ठीक करने के साथ ही मनोवैज्ञानिक नजरिये से भी फायदा पहुंचाती हैं. लेकिन इन दवाओं के इस्तेमाल के लिए किसी डॉक्टर से सलाह जरूर ले लें. इसके लिए क्यूरकस क्यू, सिनकोना ऑफिसिनैलिस, कैलिडोनियम आदि दवाएं चिकित्सक के निर्देशानुसार इस्तेमाल की जा सकती हैं.

ध्यान और योगाभ्यास-
योगाभ्यास के जरिए भी इसको दूर किया जा सकता है. मुद्रा, ध्यान तथा योग क्रियाओं के माध्यम से उनके शरीर से विकार को दूर किया जाता है. जो निम्नलिखित है:

1. ज्ञान मुद्रा : ज्ञान मुद्रा से आत्मविश्वास में वृद्धि होती है और इससे मन का शुद्धिकरण होता है. ज्ञान मुद्रा करने के लिए दाहिने हाथ के अंगूठे को तर्जनी के टिप पर लगाएं और बाईं हथेली को छाती के ऊपर रखें. इस क्रिया को लगातार 45 मिनट तक करने से काफी फायदा मिलता है.
2. ध्यान : ध्यान करने से शरीर के अंदर से खराब तत्व बाहर हो जाते हैं. एकाग्रता लाने के लिए त्राटक किया जाता है. इसमें बिना पलक झपकाए प्रकाश की रोशनी को लगातार देखने का अभ्यास किया जाता है. इसके अलावा कई तरह की योगक्रियायें भी आप कर सकते हैं जैसे कि कुंजल क्रिया, वस्ति, शंख प्रक्षालन, शंख प्रक्षालन में सावधानी आदि.

ऐल्कॉहॉलिक्स एनॉनिमस-
ऐल्कॉहॉलिक्स एनॉनिमस. संस्था न कहकर इसे ऐल्कॉहॉलिजम के शिकार महिला, पुरुषों का परिवार कहें तो बेहतर होगा. यहां किसी तरह की फीस नहीं ली जाती. इस परिवार से जुड़ने वाले हर नए सदस्य का पूरे सम्मान के साथ यहां स्वागत किया जाता है. यहां होने वाली मीटिंग में सभी सदस्य अपने अनुभव और उन गलतियों को शेयर करते हैं, जो उन्होंने शराब की वजह से कीं. नए सदस्य को एक ट्रेनर को सौंप दिया जाता है जिसे स्पॉन्सर कहते हैं. स्पॉन्सर उनके साथ हमेशा कॉन्टैक्ट बनाए रखता है. इसके लिए लगातार 90 मीटिंग अटेंड करने की सलाह दी जाती है. अगर किसी ने शराब भी पी रखी है तो भी वह मीटिंग अटेंड कर सकता है. मीटिंग जॉइन करने वाले नए सदस्य से उनके बीते दिनों के अनुभवों को लिखवाया जाता है. अगर कोई अनपढ़ है तो उसकी बातों को टेप किया जाता है या कोई साथी सदस्य उसके कहे अनुसार लिखने में मदद करता है. व्यक्तित्व में बदलाव के लिए पूरे 12 सूत्र बनाए गए हैं.

नशा मुक्ति के कुछ घरेलू नुस्खे-
1. संतरा और नीबू के रस तथा सेव, केला आदि के सेवन से ऐल्कॉहॉल की वजह से शरीर में जमा जहर कम हो जाता है.
2. खजूर काफी फायदेमंद रहता है. 3-4 खजूर को आधे गिलास पानी में रगड़कर देने से शराब की आदत छोड़ने में मदद मिलती है.
3. धूम्रपान करना बिल्कुल बंद कर दें. धूम्रपान से ऐल्कॉहॉल लेने की इच्छा प्रबल होने लगती है.
4. आधा गिलास पानी और समान मात्रा में अजवाइन से बने रस को मिलाकर रोजाना एक महीने तक पीने से काफी फायदा मिलता है.
