Recovery Necessitates Support
Addiction effects all areas of a person’s life. Their professional life, their personal life, and everything in between. The physical effects of addiction can be extreme and intense, but the emotional effects can be just as harmful. An effective treatment plan must address both the physical and the psychological effects of addiction.
The Study of Addiction
In 1978, a study referred to as the Rat Park Study was conducted to analyze the power of drug addiction on rats. Rats were given the option to consume water laced with morphine or plain water. The rats were tested in two contrasting environments. First, they were tested in solitary confinement and next they were tested in a situation where other rats surrounded them. In all instances, the rats that had other rats with them for companionship chose plain water over morphine. The rats in confinement chose the morphine. The results of this study are incredibly impactful and significant in the way addiction is treated today. Companionship must be addressed in a successful treatment plan. The study speaks to the incredible importance of having someone by a client’s side when faced with addiction. It illustrates the value in having a team of people supporting the client throughout the process of recovery and when dealing with both the physical effects and the emotional aspects of addiction.
