According to statistics, chemical dependence in men is twice as common as in women.

Unlike the fairer sex, in whom depression and anxiety are the main factors causing them to take an interest in drugs, men are more likely to use chemicals due to antisocial personality disorders.

  • relationship problems;
  • psychological trauma at an early age;

The reasons for the formation of drug addiction differ depending on the age of the man. So, for older youth groups, one of the factors is the search for euphoria, and adolescents most often choose drugs with a hallucinogenic effect. Moreover, for the latter, the first experience is very often associated with ordinary curiosity.

Often, addiction to drugs is preceded by alcohol abuse, a feeling of loneliness, the presence of chronic diseases. Another reason is the loss of a prestigious or highly paid job.

In his struggle with the disease, the patient can enlist the help of God, such as he sees him.

Step three

The patient learns to trust the power that leads him to recovery; he completely delegates control of his life to this power.

Step four

The stage of careful introspection: the patient reveals his hidden fears and negative experiences to the group in order to understand the root cause of the development of the disease.

The patient accepts himself and his negative experience; he admits his mistakes not only to himself, but also to his loved ones and to God leading him.

Step six
