As with soma, prescription drugs (where prescribed or otherwise) provide a quick fix for physical or mental problems and/or a way to get high. But these drugs also hurt the users, with addiction, bodily functions failing and making them be violent. The use of drugs has severe effects on the users and not only in reality but also in Brave New World. Usually people turn to drugs for relief and contentment, they want to be in a state of mind where they can feel things which they usually can’t and to be in a state of pleasure so they turn to them. Most do not realise the harsh long term effects these drugs can
Therefore In this essay I intend to put across both side of the arguments and then conclude with my own personnel opinion. Some people are against smacking children because the research evidence shown is overwhelming; smacking children is an ineffective way to manage children's behavior and damages their development. We have laws that protect adults from being assaulted by other adults however many people still believe that smacking children is a legal form of discipline. Is this therefore not ironic? As an adult can be protected by violence but a child does not have the same right.
It is good to know that there are effective treatment programs out there that can help handle people’s addiction. Some of the media out there does promote drug abuse. It makes us feel that we have to look and act a certain way and most teens often fall into the trap and find themselves under pressure. This leads to finding ways to numb their pain and often it is the illegal and/or legal drugs which come to their aid faster then their family. I believe drug use is a social
Addiction: Mind, Body, & Drugs An exploratory review of the psychological and physical effects of addiction through drug use James Driggars University of Phoenix Everyday many people get pressured into trying drugs or simply decide to cross the line of the taboo of society due to curiosity or, often, just plain boredom. Many people who become addicted to drugs began taking them recreationally, but in many cases, this recreational 'flight of fantasy' or 'mental escape' comes with more than the user bargained for. Unfortunately for most people, they are either unaware or uncaring of their family or ethnic background that may be markers of their predisposition for addiction. Since many drugs are considered "ok” on a trial or "for fun"
According to Feldman (2013, p.371) many use because they want that free spirit feeling that the loss of inhibitions and tension might provide, others are thrill seeking, and some use them as means to escape from daily stressors. Research states there is a link between adolescent’s substance addiction and changes in brain structure, function, and neurocognition that are characterized by this stage of development (Squeglia, L. M., Jacobus, J., & Tapert, S. F.,2009). Substance Abuse/Addiction on Brain Development From 12 to 18 years of age the use of alcohol and drugs rises tremendously. This rise in substance use correlates with the fact that in 2009 23% of adolescents met the diagnostic criteria for substance use disorder by the age of 20 (Squeglia, L. M., Jacobus, J., & Tapert, S. F.,2009). The usage of alcohol and drugs during the adolescences years could possibly lead to the brain deviating from its normal route of maturation and key processes of brain development (Squeglia, L. M., Jacobus, J., & Tapert, S. F.,2009).
Substance Abuse PSY 270 11/29/12 Tana Warren The viewpoint on causes and treatments for substance abuse that I agree most with is Behavioral/Cognitive. The viewpoint suggests that when a person does drugs or drinks alcohol they feel good. Their stress and tension is reduced and they feel much happier. Because the rewards from the substances make them feel so much better, they start to expect to feel the rewarding effects and therefore are more likely to abuse these substances each and every time they feel stressed. I can see how this can be true because most everyone would rather feel relaxed and happy than stressed and tense.
Spanking helps to teach our kids right from wrong and what path they should follow, if the spanking is a negative treatment that stops them from doing things like, fighting, stealing, lying and any other negative behaviour that will make them not want to do it anymore. It will teach them that the consequences of that behaviour are good and they won’t do it anymore, so child spanking is not abusive it is teaching and instructing. Spanking long term consequences can cause increased aggressiveness in children which is what you would see in an abusive
Having a child with this disorder can be very challenging and draining but I don’t give up the fight. I see her behavior as destructive and I worry that if I don’t get a good grip on her situation it would lead her down the road of drugs and crimes. ADHD does not run on my side of the family but does on my son’s father side. I did some research on ADHD and I found that if there are signs at an early age then it should be treated and if it is not treated then it would lead to drug abuse, a change in lifestyle and reduce a possibility for someone with ADHD of rehabilitation. I have my little girl in counseling every week, the school is aware of her situation and have set a 504 plan in place to where she works in small groups and she has been prescribed medication to help her.
A service user could also suffer from mood swings as a result of being abused. They could also be very submissive and passive. This may be because they want to keep their head down and don’t want to get into trouble in case they get punched. This could suggest they are being abused, particularly physically if the get physically punished for doing little things wrong like spilling a drink for example. They could also do the opposite and become very attention seeking, like kicking off when a care worker is trying to help them.
