Millions of people in the United States and around the world suffer from drug addiction. St. Petersburg, FL. is no exception. Drug addiction impacts all types of people from all different walks of life. It only takes one time for a drug to get its grip, and once it does it is a downward spiral for its victim. Many instances of crime and violence can be linked to those addicted to drugs. It is an insidious problem in all levels of society.

Drug use may start out with a casual encounter in a social situation, but an innocent "experiment" more often than not turns into a full-blown addiction. Drug addiction wreaks havoc in the user's life, with many relationships destroyed and hearts broken, not to mention the failed goals and dreams in the process. Someone suffering from drug addiction doesn't take any of this destruction into account, and is motivated solely to obtain more drugs to remain or get high.

An individual suffering from drug addiction has very little hope to resolve and treat their addiction on their own. Their efforts will most likely be futile, due to the inherent physical withdrawals the user must endure to get off of the drug. Without assistance from someone trained to handle such withdrawal symptoms, one cannot expect a positive outcome. The individual will more than likely choose not to endure the withdrawal process and will end up using the drug once again. Even if a drug user's efforts to withdraw themselves off of a drug succeeds, they will most likely return to a pattern of drug abuse as the root of their addiction was never addressed.

Someone suffering from drug addiction is under the false impression that all of the problems in their life will dissipate upon use of their drug of choice. However, this only makes their problems worse and creates new problems and even more destruction. Without the tools to handle their problems, one cannot expect an individual suffering from drug addiction to have a successful long-term recovery.
