Drug Addiction

Many people don’t think that they’ll get addicted to drugs, much less require addiction treatment in Malaysia and often underestimate this dangerous addiction. It can lead to damaging behaviours before one realizes it.


Symptoms of drug addiction include but are not limited to:
  • Feeling shaky, depressed, sweaty, sick to your stomach, and having headaches after the drugs wear off.
  • Losing interest in the things you used to enjoy doing.
  • Struggling with doing normal, basic daily tasks.
This disease often negatively impacts one’s brain and behavior and, inevitably, their mental state and health as well. There’s an important difference between addiction and abuse. Drug abuse occurs when legal or illegal substances are used in unintended ways. Drug addiction, it goes beyond physical dependence or tolerance. It’s when you can’t stop, no matter how much danger you’re putting yourself in. Even if a person wants to quit, they find that they can’t. There’s also a common misconception that drug addiction does not pertain to things like alcohol, nicotine, sleep, anti-anxiety medications, and other legal substances. This extends to prescriptions, illegally obtained narcotic pain medications, and opioids.
