BUT FIRST… Look below to paragraph in all capital letters & in BOLD.
The Congress shows good intentions in allocating MONEY to the problem of addiction to drugs, or Opiates, Smack, Pot, etc. And in bringing together people who are also CONCERNED about the PROBLEM.
The PROBLEM IS… Are these EXPERTS not the very people attempting to deal with the problem… with no success? The only thing money does is to make people who have no idea what to do RICHER…
Congress must ask itself… are they seeking to reduce the problem, or give the impression they are doing something? And I am serious in this question.
Allow me to explain as briefly as I can what is going on with the problem of Drug addiction. Let me begin with the reason people use drugs? Drugs are used by people [initially] to achieve a state not unlike when one is intoxicated with alcohol. But alcohol has a negative reaction by others, whereas today using drugs is “cool,” neat, hip, etc.
The primary reason people become addicted to drugs is… the drugs work to meet the psychological need of a person to cut-off awareness of anxiety [which is caused by that person’s MIND… threatening to expose some fearful unknown from within itself to that person’s Conscious Awareness].
AT THE CORE OF DRUG ADDICTION ARE THREE THINGS, EACH OF WHICH IS ESOTERIC [OR OPERATING WITHIN THE PERSON’S MIND], AND THIS OPERATION IS NOT CAPABLE OF BEING KNOWN BY THAT PERSON’S BRAIN:
1. Deeply repressed fear. 2. A need to have that fear revealed. 3. The fact this fear is a psychological misperception taken-on at the time of that person’s birth… which can ONLY be discovered via COMPETENT PSYCHOTHERAPY.
______________________ Additional point of interest is: Modern mental health or “BS&bp” Research Here... has no idea what the MIND is, where it is, or how it works? The CAUSE of addiction is not the drugs… but a person’s MIND that uses the drugs to achieve a state of reduced anxiety. The actual causal behind drug use is that it works. And no amount of cerebral, behavioral, or intellectual activity will impact the HABIT OF DRUG USE BECAUSE THE HABIT IS FIXED IN THE PERSON’S MIND.
____________Without adequate AND PROPER Psychotherapy, throwing money at addiction is an exercise in fleecing the tax-payers.
