I’ve tried talking to many people. I’ve tried using my own words. I’ve tried being a good role model. I’ve tried talking to the people who help me. But they’re all the same; just like the guy who drives me to work every day. They all agree that I’m a great person. But they don’t agree that I’m a great role model.
We have a saying here at DMDH that if a person is not capable of being a good role model, then they are probably not capable of being a good person. That is also true of mental health professionals. If all you do is make prescriptions and check your weight, then you are not capable of being a good person. You need to practice what you preach and treat people how you want to be treated. A good role model can make you do the same.
When I read the article about Oklahomans who have been diagnosed with mental illness, a common response is, “well, they don’t use drugs!” That is a huge problem. Drug abuse is one of the leading causes of mental illness and suicide and it is easy to see why drug addicts are often reluctant to seek help from mental health professionals.
When people who are diagnosed with mental illness become dependent on drugs or alcohol, it becomes even more difficult to convince them to seek treatment. Drug addiction is a classic example of a person’s natural tendency to think they know what’s best for them and so they can easily fall into a pattern of using drugs or alcohol to help them feel better.
The problem is that some people are able to maintain a sense of self-awareness without drugs or alcohol. At least according to Oklahoman Johnathan Williams, the department of mental health at the University of Oklahoma. “For people who find themselves in an addiction situation,” Williams says, “it’s a really difficult thing to recognize you have an addiction problem.
Oklahoman Williams says that addiction is a very complicated thing, and that even people who are aware of their own patterns of use often don’t know exactly what is wrong. The problem is when people’s patterns of use aren’t addressed, that they drift into a pattern of using drugs or alcohol, Williams says.
Williams says she has seen a lot of people who have been battling addiction for over 20 years. She says that sometimes people just wont accept help unless it is offered by a professional. She says it is important to get help early, because it takes a while to get people to change their behaviors. She says that people who have been fighting addictions for years tend to have a much stronger support network than people who have been battling addictions for a few months.
She says she has seen a lot of people come to her with addictions and have never gotten help because they dont understand that addiction is a chronic disease. She says that if someone has a lot of fear of being in the hospital, they dont get help. She says that people who have been battling addictions should get the help they need, but that people with severe addictions will often need to change their behavior.
According to some people with severe addictions, they dont understand that they have a disease. One such person is the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health, which is looking into the situation. The department is currently looking at how many patients there are in the state who have been battling an addiction. They are also looking at how these patients are coming to a treatment facility, and how long it takes for them to get help.
As you can imagine, Oklahoma’s state of extreme substance abuse is bad. It causes many people to become dependent on illegal substances. Addictions are often hard to treat if you dont know the person well enough, and even more so if you dont know what youre giving them. The department is looking into all of this too. They plan to have a series of videos explaining how to become more aware of your addiction, how to give to yourself, and how to give to others.
