There are many causes of substance abuse. Sometimes it starts off simply by people wanting to have more fun.
Then before they know it, they begin to need that drug more and more; the next thing they know they are hooked. In other cases people take drugs to cope with the emotional pain of poor choices or relationships gone wrong. They may never have learned other and better ways of coping or of getting their life together by making good choices. But while the causes of drug abuse are many and varied, and drugs themselves are many, there is only one way to recovery.
Treatment for substance abuse usually includes booking into a rehabilitation centre where medical doctors and other staff can support you while you get over the addiction. A private drug treatment centre usually offers the best chance for recovery, depending on their programme of treatment. Some rehab centres specialise in just one type of drug abuse. They may be for alcohol addiction, said to be the worst drug of all. This is because it’s use is so widely accepted and part of the Australian culture that many people don’t see it as a drug at all. Other rehabilitation facilities treat addictions to hard drugs such as heroin. This too, is a substance that has caused a great deal of suffering in many countries, not just Australia.
Treating More than Substance Abuse
The main thing to remember is that professional treatment for substance abuse is essential if you want to recover.

Emotional problems and mental problems are also dealt with and the person is given life coping skills so that they do not need to take drugs.
