When people think about addiction they automatically think of drugs or alcohol when it’s so much more than just that. You can almost be addicted to anything but drugs and alcohol have been the highlight in our society. Issues are rising more and more each day, month, and year. Addiction is when you feel like you can’t live or function without something. Going through this pandemic may raise the amount of people using and abusing drugs and alcohol just because it’s almost nothing better to do. I don’t think people truly understand the severity of being addicted to something. Looking from the outside in, another individual just may feel like they should just go to rehab and change. Change is not easy for anyone. It’s not something that’s going to happen over night and it’s not easy to one admit that you’re addicted and then get help. After addicts go to rehab, I feel there should be required therapy sessions so they can talk out whatever may be causing them to use.
