By: John Porter

Prolonged dependency on a particular drug say for cocaine ultimately leads the drug addict reach the level of tolerance. This is actually a feel normal situation that is attained by the drug addict over a period of using the same drug again and again and become used to it. The tolerance capacity of the individual accustomed to that drug is extremely high and it seems to the person that without the drug he might fall ill.

Entering the entrapment

Help is badly needed

Drug addicts become so vulnerable after reaching a stage that they can't even stand straight on their spine and seek help. There are also incidents that the drug abusers become extremely rigid to ask for help so that they can be properly treated. The situation turns morose and gruesome.

After a certain stage the drug abusers are rejected and abandoned by the society. They suffer from intense isolation that becomes another miserable situation for them. The feeling of being unaccepted and rejected makes their addiction level increase crossing all boundaries.

The drug rehab centers are definitely working on this issue and dedicated to remove this malice out of the society. But helping hands should come from everyones si'de. Whenever you find someone involved in drug abusing activity, immediately bring him under the notice of a rehab center. Also track the drug dealer and help law to put the whole racket behind the bars.
