The Medicating of America - Substance Abuse treatment should be drug free!

 

Drug/alcohol treatment takes much work. We need to be clear headed and motivated, not drugged.

Recovery from alcohol/drug addiction means surrender to another way after your way did not work.

The best way is to use the way of successful recovering addicts/alcoholics. It is a "doable" path to a successful life.

Persevere for the first little bit. Once you get the hang of recovery, you will like it.

The newest part is usually being sober and clean - dealing with reality. The good news is that you don't have to do it alone.

If you are truly an addict, Recovery means abstinence from all mood-altering chemicals!

First, get an accurate diagnosis from a seasoned trained therapist.

Abusers, i.e., absence of cravings when abstinent and able to maintain emotions and connections with others, make up for harms done and not get cravings ever again, can just abstain. Otherwise, the quality of life is a major concern.

Love and Inner Peace,

Addiction is for quitters.

Recovery from addiction means Hope for a useful life. What is better than that?

 

'Give me hope, help me cope with this heavy load.' - George Harrison.

Sometimes life is a matter of coping. Drinking or drugging at it gives you a new, perhaps unsolvable (?) problem.

Use your program. Ask for help when stressed.

Love and Inner Peace,

Recovery gives us choices.

 

Choose between love or fear. One breeds happiness, the other depression.

When in recovery from addiction, we give  back; then we get back that which we lost.

 

Recovery from addiction entails asking God for release from the bondage of addiction and then making up for harms done to others.

Addiction treatment should be affordable.

 

At My Freedom Quest, I give addicts and alcoholics a chance to get siber and clean no matter how much money they have. It is 'doable' if the person wants help.

Abstinence is not sobriety.

 

Recovery means much work on thoughts, feelings and subsequent actions. Behaviors must change from self-centered to altruistic. This takes time and work.

Families of addiction have been severely damaged.

 

Years of repair have to be completed. All members need to heal from the fears, angers, shame and sadness that the disease of addiction breeds. There is no magic cure.

Families of addicts are the best source of change.

 

I have worked with hundreds of addicts/alcoholics who have broken denial because of the families pain and resultant courage to become healthy.
