The Small Community of Whitecourt, AB


Drugs offer a momentary relief

Though Whitecourt is a small community it still is on the crossroads of drug traffickers. Also due to its more remote area this attracts marijuana growers and other substance users. Despite the efforts by law enforcement, drugs and alcohol still continue to effect communities across Alberta. But there is a solution and a way to overcome addiction to Marijuana, Cocaine, pain killers (OxyContin, Percocet, etc.) and other illicit drugs and alcohol. In order to help someone who is struggling with addiction it is important to have some knowledge as to how the addiction began in the first place.

Drug Addiction

The majority of drug and alcohol abusers did not start off their lives doing drugs. In some rare instances where a mother is pregnant is also abusing drugs this will affect the unborn child to some degree but if the child is well nourished and properly care for from birth, normally they turn out fine. In most instances of drug or alcohol struggles the person came face to face with some terrible life situation, some unwanted emotional upset, or some painful accident. Then there are those that due to lack of self-confidence began to experiment with drugs to “fit in” or be accepted socially. In all cases there is some unwanted painful condition. Drugs and alcohol tend to temporarily numb a person’s perceptions while under the influence, this momentary relief is welcomed with open arms by the person who suffers. But when the drug wears off the painful emotion returns and more drugs are taken and the cycle continues until the body gets accustomed to the dose and larger amounts are required. This cycle can happen fast or slow but the result is the same physical dependency, or addiction.

Once addicted to a drug the person is now a slave to the drug or if attempting to quit they are faced with painful withdrawal symptoms that can sometimes be quite unbearable and even life threatening. Addiction requires professional assistance to first detox than to be rehabilitated back to a former self. The tools used to achieve this will vary from addiction treatment program to program. The one you choose to attend should be one that is right for you and your situation. This is where our drug addiction counselors can be of great assistance. Their experience with a large variety of addiction treatment programs and facilities across Alberta and Canada will help find the right program for you.
