When the enablers stop, the addict/alcoholic cannot continue abusing.

The enablers shield the person from the motivation to stop. This is not intentional. This supposedly relieves the stress from the family and the addict. However, it allows the person to continue to abuse because others are making it comfortable.

Like alcohol, about 1 in 10 of our kids is going to be a victim of pot addiction. Let's not make it easy.

Our children rely on us to show them the right path. They do what we do. We must teach the truth about addiction. We are obligated to teach values, love for others and for God.

Let's focus on solutions to problems like addiction and not create chaos by focusing on manufactured problems or projected complaints.

Addiction is highly treatable by those who have treated themselves, not those who don't know how to treat t. It takes years to understand the solution and be able to reach addicts. Throwing money and drugs at addiction makes it much worse. Call me for the solution. Dr. Peter A. Butkins, LMT

Inpatient treatment for addiction does not get people sober and clean. There is much work ahead.

Recovery takes much spiritual, mental, emotional and physical work. Stability takes a few years in the mainstream of society where triggers can and must be neutralized.

Addiction feeds itself on lies. Great Lies!!!

Addiction feeds itself on lies. Great Lies!!!The disease of addiction has a mind of its own. It tells us that it does not exist and causes no problems. The ruse is that the problems are caused by other things. The question is, "Would you have had a dui if you weren't drinking?"

#addiction Addiction is highly treatable. Politics interfere with effective treatment.

Many times, greed and fears overtake the providers. There are billions of dollars in addiction treatment. There is peace and purposefulness in doing it right.

Addiction Recovery is much more than abstinence.

Recovery requires abstinence, of course. You cannot be drug and alcohol free if you are still drinking or using drugs. Next comes character change and humility. A purposeful spiritual life replaces a life of hedonism and self-centered fear and loathing.

Recover and enjoy your new life.
