Addiction is different for every person. It may be alcohol for some, prescription drugs for another person, or yet other substances for someone else. Some drugs are highly addictive and, even if they help with chronic pain, are not healthy if they cause more problems than they solve. Some prescription drugs are so addictive they are limited to being prescribed in only certain circumstances. The Brompton Cocktail is one such mix of several substances used for treatment of severe pain that can be addictive for some individuals.


Brompton Cocktails and Addiction

The Brompton Cocktail contains several substances. It has, at times, contained heroin, cocaine, and ethyl alcohol. This mixture may also contain an anti-nausea agent like Thorazine. This cocktail has been used for agonizing pain relief, such as terminal cancer, but was used mostly back in the day and not as much today. This mixture still remains used by some people in recreational use, referring to any mixture that contains alcohol, opioids, cocaine, and a tranquilizer. 


Why Addiction Occurs

The use of the Brompton Cocktail is a form of relief for some people with a terminal diseases. It is helpful because it can be used recreationally but is dangerous. There are various reasons for this. Firstly, the opioid that provides pain relief and calm can cause the body to feel like it enjoys this and craves more of that feeling. Cocaine is a stimulant and provides euphoric feelings. Alcohol is a depressant that slows the brain and body. These substances are highly addictive on their own but combined they form a deadly combination that has serious consequences. Opioids, cocaine, and alcohol act on the body immediately but they act in different ways by either speeding up or slowing down the body, which confuses it when they are all ingested at the same time. 


Addiction Help

Whatever substances a person becomes addicted to, they harm a person’s life. They take over their work, family, and personal life. They end up being the only reason people live. That is no way to truly live, to seek more drugs or substances. Treatment helps people find ways to navigate recovery and healing. People often are not just addicted to one thing, they use several substances to cope with pain or with something in life. Treatment helps people recognize the triggers and cravings that push them to use substances and heal old wounds. They work with the person to find ways to get past their old wounds and identify positive strategies for moving forward.


The treatment program is foolproof in that a person will not relapse. However, the chances of a person moving forward with their life will find hope if they are not mired down by addiction. Aftercare supports a person in the community and at home so they can continue to thrive, find other coping strategies, and meet others who share similar stories. This will help build bridges of healing and hope in recovery.
