  • natural methods to control addiction

    Is there any natural method to control addiction?
    We tend to think that stopping an addictive behavior means joining a group, seeing a therapist, going to a treatment center, or taking a medication that helps with cravings. Some people manage to break an addiction without any help. These "natural recoverers" tend to take two key steps: They find a new hobby, challenge, or relationship to help fill the void left by the addiction. And they start exercising. Exercise is important because it acts as a natural antidepressant. It also prompts the body to release its own psychoactive substances—endorphins—that trigger the brain's reward pathway and promote a feeling of well-being. Natural recovery isn't a sure thing, and the more severe the addiction, the harder it is to do.

    Welcome to the forum!! To answer your question honestly I don't believe so. I know with my experience, nothing natural has worked for me, but that's not the case for everyone. I believe it all comes down to the human bad do you want it? Do you have will power? Are you willing to put in work? Sure, finding new hobbies will help you in recovery and keep your mind occupied. But I am a firm believer that people should not just suddenly stop taking heroin cold turkey, even quitting smoking suddenly can be dangerous. Depending on how much you are using your body basically goes into shock which creates anxiety and stress. My opinion on topics such as this are often unpopular. I'm not sure if its because I have a background in the medical field and mostly all my college courses were science...but I side with the medicinal route when it comes to things such as quitting drugs. Even if its just a 5 day Subutex detox. I feel like some addicts really do need medicication (not abusing it, closely monitored by a physician) and if they aren't treated properly things can get bad. 💛Megan
