It's never too late, Break the Addiction

Disabilities And Rehab

Having a disability can greatly affect addiction.

There are many people who suffer from learning disabilities. Not only do they have a hard time coping with the everyday stresses of life but they feel like they do not fit in with society. These people are more likely to self-medicate than seek help from a treatment facility because they are embarrassed. Learning disabilities, like mental health illness, have the potential to cause substance addiction but luckily, can be treated at a rehabilitation facility.

Signs of a Learning Disability

Studies show that roughly 41 percent of students have some sort of learning disability. A person may show peculiar speech patterns as well as a difficulty in reading and writing. Their ability to learn new things is extremely challenging and they may misinterpret information. They may also have difficulties forming and managing relationships, causing them to feel lonely and develop low self-esteem.

Learning Disabilities and Substance Abuse

It is difficult to recognize someone who is struggling with a learning disability. Like all people, they are expected to act like normal members of society and if they do not, they are subject to criticism and even bullying; this combined with low self-esteem is usually followed by substance abuse to cope.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Although Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is not categorized as a learning disability, it does prevent people from being able to focus. They experience scrambled and disorganized thoughts as well as impulsive behavior. Because they are easily distracted, it is difficult for them to follow simple rules.

The prescription drugs used to treat ADHD, such as Concerta, Adderall and Ritalin, have the potential to lead to addiction.
