For anyone entering drug rehab, emotions can range from fear to anger, from nervousness to gratitude for those who are thankful that they have finally found a pathway to escaping their drug addiction. Those who become addicted to drugs and speak about their experience of drug addiction will each point to one or more triggers that they recognise as the starting point.
Some will have childhood traumas, others may have been in abusive relationships, some may simply have been mixing with the wrong crowd as teenagers and some will cite the stress of their jobs that ignited their drug-taking. This will often have been as a result of things happening in their workplace, but what of those who work from home?
You might be shocked to learn that working from home can be the trigger for someone starting to take drugs. Given the recent past when many of us had no choice but to work from home due to Covid-19, there is no doubt that the number of those working from home falling into a spiral of drug-taking has increased.
Now, you might be someone who has dreamed of a job that allows you to work from home and cannot think why anyone would turn to drugs working from the comfort of their lounge. However, despite its many positive aspects, working at home form also has downsides, and dealing with these downsides can be the trigger.
