My name is CA Kailash Mantry. I am a life coach and mental health consultant. From 25 years, we are researching on more than 50 diseases where we treat them without medicine such asStammering, Epilepsy, Drug addict, Alcoholic, Schizophrenia, OCD, Alzheimer, Parkinson, ADHD,Autism, Migraine, Arthritis. Today we will talk about a drug addict. The first question is why drugs are taken by a drug addict. Those who take drugs they know that it is not good for health, we will die soon, then too why they take drugs. The child takes the drugs because they find some benefit. The benefits are they find little happiness in their life. It means who wants such happiness wherein future it is going to be sad so it is taken by those who are sad, serious in their life, failure in life, sadness in life, rejection, the person who considers himself as useless and helpless.
They are too secretive; parents also do not get to know that they take drugs. 50% of the parents get to know that my child takes drugs when they get a call from the police station or their child is missing overnight or they get powder of drugs so they assume that they take drugs.
So how does it start?
drugs always start from smoking, first there is an addiction to smoking, charas, weed and try different drugs, then try injection and many other options to start drugs. Most parents think they only have option, send the child to a rehab center. However this a very bad decision as you send your child to a place where he is made to feel rejected and wrong when is already suffering from sadness.
Rehab is one type of prison like there is no freedom and the inmate has to follow jailer. The patient feels helpless in prison, they feel sad as they feel helpless. Then they try to get away from there and when they come out they are afraid that they will go again to rehab. But experience says that after 3- 6 month the drugs or alcohol, whatever they were taking, they start it again. Which means rehab is not the solution for drugs. Then what is the solution to a drug addict? The real problem of drug addict is that they are sad and they are sad because of their family. If the reason behind this is family hence family should be consulted first. They should be given the freedom to ask about their reasons. When they share their problems with the life coach or counselor, 90% chances of their sadness are their parents.
In this, there are some rejections, failure in love and many other reasons. But the major reason is there is no understanding with their parents and they hold many grudges. As they do not share with anyone, they feel no one will understand them. So if the parents get a doubt that their child takes drugs then they should take the child to a life coach or counselor. First chance should be given to a child that they should understand the problem of the child, what the challenges are facing by them. Sometimes the solution of this can be 10 hours treatment if the child is the first stage of a drug addict. If they take drugs for many years then it may take 2-3 months to be cured.
They take the drugs where there are no one or search for isolated place and where they are fearless of getting caught, no good security system. Find vacant flat or isolated place. Mostly they take drugs in the night as they do not get sleep in a night. Their friends are so secretive that they do not tell to anyone. If someone is caught he or she do not tell that how much drugs are taken by them. Drug addiction is a serious issue, it is increasing rapidly. In Mumbai, 30-35% of the college students are a drug addict and it is increasing. Drugs are mostly taken by the youngsters or teenagers. At the age of 40, they do not take the drugs. This disease is for youngsters. If this disease is not treated at this stage then this disease can be converted into mental illness. The life of the child gets destroyed; do not take any responsibility, becomes theft because they want money anyhow for drugs. If the parents do not give money they fight with their parents and then they start stealing money, sell all household items and there is a disturbance in their life.
Can this disease than be cured? 100%.
This is a mental illness which can be cured within a minimum 1 month and a maximum of 3 months. It is a lifelong guarantee that the drug addict can get cured and will not take drugs again. They feel helpless, lonely so We basically build their confidence, make their communication good, good self-esteem, train them on how to be responsible and can live a good life.
They are very happy that they take drugs and they do not want to get away from this because they feel that for some time they are happy and go in their own world. They feel very happy with other drug addict and feel loved. This addiction can be within 1 month also if they take it regularly. They are so secure that they do not admit that they take drugs. There is no role of a drug addict to cure them. Medicine is also one type of drugs. If you give medicine for drugs then it is not a good strategy. Putting in a rehab center or giving medicine is not a good strategy.
The communication between family and patient with a life coach or counselor is a solution to get them treated. Taking drugs not necessary even for people with mental disturbances. They can be called a mental illness or mentally disturbed. If they are not extremely disturbed they will not get to drugs. Some people also addicted to the medicine they take medicine for every disease but the percentage of this is very less and this happens after the age of 40 and they are afraid of death. They think if they take medicine they will not die. A drug addict cannot be removed by oneself because they think what the benefits are for them. If the mindset of anyone is that taking something makes them feel happy or relieved why would they leave that, if there is a loss when it happens after a long time.
Drug addicts are 100% curable, minimum 1 month and if it is the severe case then it would take 3 months to get cured. It has been researched that when the drugs are been taken in brain 1 lakh cells are killed in seconds. There can also be memory loss, Parkinson, Alzheimer and many other diseases for a drug addict. But for drug addict it has been heard that they can get cancer also, this is wrong. There is no association between cancer and drugs. But drug addicts justify that they will not cancer but if they will not cancer they may get any other disease.
The symptoms of drug addicts are they get serious with their life and stops talking, always sad. If you see any child being isolated or do not talk with anyone they should take to the counselor and if they do not admit then too they should take to the counselor because there are some unusual behavior, do not want to be with anyone, won’t be alone, missing in night, do not go work, do not study, if these are symptoms of any child you should take them to the counselor. They do not admit to the counselor that they take drugs but the counselor will deal with their sadness and makes there sadness less and then they will be away from drugs. It’s not easy to have drugs. It means he is so sad, helpless that at the end he thinks I will die but I can’t control this emotion.
At last, I would like to say that the rehab is not the right solution. It is a surprise to know that the person who is handling the rehab center, is an ex-drug addict or an ex-alcoholic. Due to discipline, strictness they experience lack of love and they feel trapped in prison. So this is not the solution and medicine is also not the solution. The solution for this is that you should go to the life coach or counselor who can understand the pain or problem and they will build their trust and make them responsible and can live a normal life.
