5 Underlying Reasons for Addiction

What Are 5 Underlying Reasons for Addiction? Addiction always stems from a root cause, also known as one of the reasons for addiction. It is extremely important to treat both the root cause of the addiction in addition to the physical addiction itself. Staying sober involves much more than just detoxing from drugs or alcohol and abstaining from them in the future. It also involves finding the underlying reasons for the addiction and treating that as well, so that it does not exacerbate the addiction in the future. This is why so many people fail when they attempt to quit using drugs or alcohol cold turkey. While there can be many underlying reasons for addiction, the 5 most common root causes are trauma, co-occurring disorders, genetic predisposition, sexual and gender issues, and being prescribed addictive medication. Someone suffering from addiction can experience one root cause, or they can experience many. Trauma When someone experiences a traumatic event, it can cause a domino effect of changes to the brain. One of these changes can include addiction. A traumatic event can include such things as a terrible car accident, the death of a loved one, combat, sexual abuse, physical abuse, verbal abuse, or some type of abuse or neglect occurring during childhood. Trauma can cause someone to have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which can cause many feelings of depression and anxiety and often leads to addiction or suicide. Trauma experienced during childhood can cause extremely ...

This study examined the relationship of living environment (urban vs. suburban vs. small-town/rural) to social anxiety (SA) in a sample of 902 TGNC individuals who participated in the Trans Health Survey. Analysis of variance revealed a significant difference in SA across living environments. Those living in small-town/rural environments reported significantly higher levels of SA compared to those living in urban environments. There was a trend-level difference in SA in suburban compared to urban environments. Linear regression analyses revealed that living environment significantly moderated the relationship between socia...

PhillipsAbstractIn order to expand the prospects of developing novel antidepressants for treatment-resistant populations, animal models should incorporate not only various stress-induced behavioural, neurochemical and endocrine parallels to major depressive disorder (MDD), but also aspects of heightened stress susceptibility and resistance to conventional drugs. This review focuses on the available literature supporting the Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rat as a model of endogenous st...

This study investigated the prevalence of depression and explored fatigue, QOL, and pain that is associated with depression in patients on first admission to a hematologic oncology unit. METHODS: This descriptive study measured depression, QOL, and fatigue with the Patient Health Questionnaire-9, the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy (FACT)-General, and the FACT-Anemia scale, respectively. Pain levels were examined with a numeric rating scale. FINDINGS: 58 patients participated; 17 reported moderate to severe depression, which highly correlated with fatigue, QOL, and pain. Among all factors, multivariate an...

The purpose of this study was to develop an Automated Diagnostic Tool (ADT) to investigate and classify the EEG signal patterns into normal and schizophrenia classes. The ADT implements a sequence of events, such as EEG series splitting, non-linear features mining, t-test ...
