LISTEN TO THE SHRINK –
April 6, 2022 – Drug addiction is something that has been battled in various ways. But till date, there is no full-proof method of curing it. There are rehabilitation centers to help addicts but even after that people tend to relapse and go back to consuming drugs. Psychologists say that the most important factor of drug addiction for one is to understand the root cause of the problem rather than trying to stop the person from consuming drugs. The motivation of self-harm comes from the deep-rooted traumatic experiences in one’s life. Nicole categorised drug addiction as a “silent pandemic” and asked people to understand the reason behind people harming themselves through drug addiction. “Why do people seek substances that they know are harmful for them or could even take their lives? And destroy relationships,” a part of the caption read. She added that the reason behind this was escaping emotional pain and the inability to self soothe.
