Are you in the peak of health? It is extremely important to be in top shape in order to survive in a disaster or emergency scenario. There’s no easy way to say this, so I will get straight to the point. If you want to survive, either in a disaster situation or a “normal” situation, then you need to be free from addiction. Any type of illegal or addictive substances (including cigarettes) will be in short supply in a disaster. If you are addicted, chances are it will be difficult for you to function normally without your regular drug of choice.

Rather than waiting for the end of the world (or something close to it – you never know when that next hurricane will strike), you should take steps to control your addiction now. If you do it now, you have some luxury of time and options, and can gradually get used to living without substance abuse. It is much easier to handle withdrawal symptoms when your life (or the lives of those you love) does not depend on it. It is very difficult to kick the habit, particularly if you have been addicted for a long time. It’s even more difficult when you don’t have support from family and friends.

Luckily, help is available. You can call 1-800-No-Drugs to find a drug treatment center that meets your needs. They support an international network of drug rehab treatment centers, which cater for all types of alcoholism, drug addiction, substance abuse, dual diagnosis, and chronic relapse clients. The referral service is free — there is never a charge for the referral. The service is made available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

If you personally are not suffering from addiction, that’s great. If someone you know is struggling with the disease of drug addiction or alcoholism, you complete the brief online assessment form or give a call immediately to 1-800-No-Drugs (800-663-7847) .
