The debate continues about the drug problems in Alexandria, VA. and all cities as to what should be done to stop this worldwide problem that affects so many lives including society as a whole. At present there is no all encompassing solution to the global problem of drug abuse and drug addiction. More in depth examination of the subject may one day bring the hope of an effective solution to this worldwide problem.

On the other hand we have learned a great deal about the nature of drug addiction on an individual level and how to treat a person afflicted with the malady. Today, there are many different treatment options for a person that has developed a drug addiction problem. How do you know if a person has a drug addiction problem? It is a simple test. When faced with serious negative consequences, brought about by their drug they continue to use. These serious negative consequences of their drug use may be, loss of employment, legal issues, marital problems, abusing or neglecting their children and in spite of these consequences brought on by their drug use they will continue to use. A person in the throes of drug addiction will promise to stop and mend their ways yet continue to use and manifest the same unacceptable behavior associated with drug addiction.

A drug addict in Alexandria, Virginia has a connection to the drugs that completely controls his or her life. They have so called "friends" in Alexandria that they use drugs with daily. With so many reminders it can be very difficult for an addict to break the habit in Alexandria.

For a person in Alexandria, VA. that had developed a serious addiction two of the most therapeutic decisions one could make are: one, find a good Drug Rehabilitation Center and two, make it a considerable distance from Alexandria. Add to this a long term Drug Treatment Center 90 days or however long it takes to remedy the condition and give them enough time to practice their new life as a drug free person. Professionals studying the condition of drug addiction and treatment on how to address it, all agree on one thing: there is no quick fix for the condition. Studies show even the best treatment available takes time to take hold and then the person should have time to become accustomed to their new drug free life and become confident they can continue to do so when they return to Alexandria.
