One of the major social problems that are pressing the society is the people’s tendency to be addicted to something that could harm their lives. Drug Addiction, addiction to alcohol, and other forms of addiction are definitely harmful to the user and to the people who surround him. Families who have a particular member of their family who is suffering from addiction tend to have no clue sometimes on what to do with the person who has dependency on drugs or alcohol. As a member of the family, it is difficult for us to see our loved one destroying himself or herself because of this destructive habit and psychological sickness. A person who is an addict can cause harm to himself. At the onset of drug addiction it may not be obvious but as the addiction continues to become worse, the addict becomes careless of his or her personal appearance, he or she does not have a sense of good hygiene, he or she does not care at all especially when he or she has the urge to fulfill the fix to his or her addiction. The families of the addict sometimes suffer more than the addicts themselves. The addict is not aware sometimes of the dilemma and catastrophe he or she is making but the people who surround him or her are worried and frustrated. When faced with addiction problems it is best to consult professionals who are expert in dealing and treating addiction.
