Article Topic: Treatment programs for men with substance abuse problems
The History of Substance Abuse: Treatment programs have sprung up in response to the overwhelming epidemic of behavioral disorders that where once tolerated without intervention. Drugs and alcohol have long histories of use in the development of the world. Substance abuse becomes an issue now and again when “the powers that be” find it advantageous to intervene for monetary gain.
Throughout history behavior altering substances have played a role in human social development and have been demonized. The latest story starts back in the late 30’s when the hemp industry made a machine to harvest hemp in high volume, which threatened the fabric industry run by DuPont (rayon, nylon), financed by Mellon Bank ( sole financier was William Randolph Hearst). The Marijuana Tax Act was passed by Congress in ’37 orchestrated by Henry J. Aslinger of the Senate subcommittee for illegal drugs. Aslinger was married to Mellon’s daughter at the time. Usury Its all about the money!
In other research, historians describe the 1920s as a decade of contrasts and conflicts. Overall, the decline of the Anglo-Saxon class as the most influential group in American society characterized this time period. Even as the power of the Anglo-Saxon establishment was on the wane, one of its final attempts at holding onto control was the passage of national Prohibition.
Substance Abuse Programs Treat Life-style Behaviors: Life-style stress from class conditioning stimulates the fight or flight behavior response in every individual. Responses to social-stimuli are manifested in our behavior all the time. The question is why are so many people having trouble coping with their social-condition. As long as people are not willing to be honest with their emotions they will continue to avoid them by masking them in altered states of consciousness that manifest itself sometimes in abusive behavior.
Why Substance Abuse Programs are Necessary: Substance Abuse Programs are needed to rehabilitate people from the conditioning that brought them to the brink of the social-intolerance caused by their emotional turmoil.
The source and root cause of our actions and reactions are generally a social peer group pressure prompted behavior that benefits a group at the expense of the target audience. In explanation: People are conditioned like Pavlov conditioned his dog to respond to the bell stimulus – humans respond to money for and as pleasure. When the money stimulus fails to override the underlying discontent people seek escape into the illusions of behavior altering substances; when through repetition, routine and habit abuse results.
Who Should Attend Substance Abuse Programs: Legislators should be required to attend to learn how their legislative choices cause the impact-stresses found in our social-environment. Substance uses are made to be criminal because government legislators lack the management skills to provide society with laws that curtail substance abuse by providing a reality that is more desirable than the fantasy and dissociation found in substance use behavior that leads to abuse.
What is Causing the Need for Substance Abuse Programs: Like the manifestation of pollutants, abuse is a manifested by-product of social mismanagement. The laws demonizing behavior are a direct result of the legislated by elite aristocratic hierarchy to subjugate the masses to their will as did the Roman Empire, which the French and English followed; and as does the United States. These types of governments are founded and formed out of greed and selfishness, they do not flow from natural law; because they are not subordinate to the integrity, ethics and morals of nature. They appear that they conform; but when interpreted by the letter of the law they avoid the natural law on which they were based. This is the source of the emotional turmoil; bad government is the root cause for all the coping strategy abuses we all abhor.
Types of Substance Abuse Programs: There are all kinds of health abuse programs from phobias of irrational fears and exaggerations, physical abuses, smoking addictions, anger management, eating disorders, drugs and alcohol addictions.
Substance Abuse Programs approach the conditions of behavior from lifestyle perspective that relies on the adaptability of our human nature to recondition of the emotional response to a more acceptable behavior manifestation.
