Identification of Abuses

Welcome to today’s class!!

We are thrilled to have you in our class!!

In today’s Religious and National Values class, we will be learning about  Identification of Abuses 

Identification of Abuses

Identification of abuses refers to the detection of current misuse. Abuses can come in the form of drugs, health, human which is also referred to as child abuse. 

Identification of abuses

In the case of emotional or psychological child abuse, it is a pattern of behavior that impairs a child’s emotional development or sense of self-worth. This may include constant criticism, threats, or rejection, as well as withholding love, support, or guidance. 

Our focus for today will be on drug abuse. 

When it comes to taking drugs, it can be abused or lead to drug addiction – a state where one cannot live without taking drugs uncontrollably. 

Drugs are created to help take away our pains, however, some people use drugs to get a certain amount of physical pleasure or to relieve their pains which can cause a bad effect. 

Drug abuse

Drug addiction is a chronic, often relapsing brain disease that causes compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences to the drug addict and those around them. Drug addiction is a brain disease because the abuse of drugs leads to changes in the structure and function of the brain. 

Although it is true that for most people the initial decision to take drugs is voluntary, over time the changes in the brain caused by repeated drug abuse can impair a person’s self-control and ability to make sound decisions, and at the same time create an intense impulse to take drugs.

Treatment approaches that are tailored to each patient’s drug abuse patterns and any concurrent medical, psychiatric, and social problems can help achieve sustained recovery and a life without drugs.

In summary, if you must use drugs at all, you must ensure it is a drug that is prescribed by a medical doctor and not just any drug sold over the counter.
