Drug Addiction, Treatment, and Rehabilitation

Drug Addiction TreatmentIs your friend, the closest, addicted to drugs? What do you feel when you see the needle of the syringe full of Amphetamine going into his forearm? Injecting drugs holds more harm than oral means of taking it. Not only the person will be addicted, but also there will be a higher chance for the contraction of malignant viruses and bacteria through injection. I needn’t go much into the negative effects of taking drugs; everyone knows it. Drug addiction is a terrible pathological condition, which cannot be cured without help from a proper drug rehab program.

Addiction treatment is a step that has to start early on. It is a complex process involving individual care, counseling, detoxification, and aftercare. It should also involve comfortable setting for the patients to bring them back to the normal conditions.

Drug rehabilitation and treatment is inevitable for addicts. One cannot remain silent and continue to take drugs without going for treatment. Addiction is different from the normal sickness in that it is a sickness of the mind, and not the body. Psychotherapy is hence an important step of drug addiction treatment.

There is many a drug treatment center out there. However, choosing the right one for your loved one should be a careful process. You should check the facilities provided, duration of the treatment, people who have already undergone the treatment with the center, etc. With today’s technology, choosing the right drug rehabilitation center should be easy and fast.

En Dash, Em Dash, and Hyphen

We have three types of dashes in use: The hyphen, En Dash, and the Em Dash. In this post, we will see how to use them all correctly. Hyphen (-) The hyphen is the minus key in Windows-based keyboards. This is a widely used punctuation mark. Hyphen should not be mistaken for a dash . Dash is different and has different function than a hyphen. A hyphen is used to separate the words in a compound adjective, verb, or adverb. For instance: The T-rex has a movement-based vision. My blog is blogger-powered. John’s idea was pooh-poohed. The hyphen can be used generally for all kinds of wordbreaks . En Dash (–) En Dash gets its name from its length. It is one ‘N’ long (En is a typographical unit that is almost as wide as 'N'). En Dash is used to express a range of values or a distance: People of age 55–80 are more prone to hypertension. Delhi–Sidney flight was late by three hours. In MS Word, you can put an En Dash either from the menu, clicking Insert->Symbol or by the k

4 Effective Ways to Write About a Boring Topic

  With the plethora of interesting topics to write about, you’re fortunate enough to get the “boring” one. While it can be a pain for many writers to wind up with such a task, I’m telling you now there are ways to make yours more interesting than it is. So if you find yourself stuck with the dreariest topic to fill in a blog about, don’t fret. Here are the four best ways to unburden yourself. 1. Never a boring topic, only a boring writer. Here’s the hard fact: It’s never about the topic being boring. It’s about the writer making it boring. For instance, you’re supposed to write about aquariums. I know, how can you continuously make this topic interesting, right? Well, you’d be surprised just in how many ways you can make it an enticing read. Start by listing down the basic “what”, “where”, “when” and “how” surrounding the topic. You can ask (and research) about “What material was first used to make aquariums?” or even “How the first aquarium was built?” or “What are

Another Tiny List of Confusables

Earlier, you may remember we published a list of confusable words . Here we are again, with such a list of words. Abjure/Adjure: Abjure means "to formally renounce (give up) something" such as a position. Adjure on the other hand means 'to appeal to' or 'solemnly order'. The governor decided to abjure his position due to political pressure. Normally, adjuring to the subordinates doesn't give many results. Amount/Number: Use amount when you have uncountable subject. Use number when it is countable. The amount of love one gets depends on the number of friends one has. Appraise/Apprise: Appraise is the word applied to quantitative evaluation of something. Apprise means 'communicate' or 'inform'. Appraising diamonds is the work of an expert. Joe apprised me of the schedule of events. Attorney/Lawyer/Solicitor: These terms are highly misinterpreted and confused by many people. Let me clarify. In the US, an attorney is any member
