Drugs

Background

This information is about the specific health area mentioned above. It comprises a combination of textual and video information, on our site and on external sites.  We will be adding new specific health areas and further information continually.

The idea is for you to understand more about the health area you are addressing before you get too far building your action plan.

General Information

Drugs!

We are not just talking about drug taking but addiction. Fact 1, all humans can become addicted to something. So we can all suffer with some form of drug addiction. Work can be an addiction. Think about it – we are conditioned to get up, go to work stay there for 8 hours; come home, go to bed and then repeat. We do this for 50 years and it can become an obsession – a habit by which when we are not there or we no longer work or we retire we cannot get unhooked.

Often drugs are seen as the end and we need to step back and look at the type of personality we have and whether we have an addictive nature.  However, “Addictive personality is not an actual psychiatric diagnosis,” says Michael Weaver, MD, medical director of the Center for Neurobehavioral Research on Addiction at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. “Personalities are very complex, and while there’s not one specific type that’s more prone to addiction than others, there are several factors that can combine to make you more likely to become addicted.”  Look at PersonalityDrive for a list of personality disorders and you’ll see some interesting aspects of personality.

Start here by taking a couple of tests and finding more about yourself. Any actions you can put in the action plan will help. Also check out our experts who are there to support you on the journey.

Background Information

There is information available which will help you formulate your action plan – both on our site and on external sites.

On our site

DrugDrive

DrugDrive is all about understanding why drugs are a serious matter. How it affects us and how we can get help. There are other drives dealing with addiction such as DrinkDrive and SmokeDrive.

Some people have addictive natures and it is important to understand yourself.

Do you find you get into things easily and then get bogged down and then feel compelled to carry on.  You could have an addictive personality.

Take the test and see how you get on. We have experts on hand who can help you with addictive tendencies.
