Rohypnol is an illegal prescription drug that is often referred to as the “date rape” drug. It is highly addictive and has severe side effects when abused, such as memory loss. As with any highly addictive drug used in an illicit manner, if you are abusing Rohypnol it is important to seek treatment.
One of the most effective aspects of recovery is the opportunity to have and rely on healthy friendships. This allows the addict to share struggles and feel supported. A drug as addictive as Rohypnol is difficult to overcome without some sort of help or support.
Healthy Friendships and Rohypnol Addiction Recovery
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) suggests that those seeking Rohypnol addiction treatment should receive professional help and also find a group of understanding people who can help support them through their recovery process.
Having a healthy social life can greatly help someone who is recovering from Rohypnol addiction. Allowing friends to surround you with happiness, positive attitudes, support, and clean fun can go a long way in giving you ambition to complete treatment. A healthy community of friends can help model drug-free lives to recovering addicts and set a positive example for how to have fun while sober.
Unhealthy Friendships Can Hurt Rohypnol Addicts
On the other hand, an unhealthy social life can completely destroy any recovery. Maintaining friendships that led to an addiction or that facilitate an addiction should be avoided. Also, spending time in places where Rohypnol abuse occurred can trigger an addict to use again. In order to avoid these triggering people and places, Rohypnol addicts must create new, healthy relationships and ways to have fun.
