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

Recovery from addiction entails abstinence and character building.

Recovery from addiction entails abstinence and character building. Addicts/alcoholics stay sober and clean through healing and growth. The journey ends with thoughts and attention to others instead of more for self.

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.

If your loved one is using drugs and/or alcohol, get help for yourself so you can help them. #addiction

Trying to help them by yourself is like trying to rebuild your carbureter on your car. You will probably need help unless you are trained in mechanics.

Good recovery requires commitment, not just involvement. #addiction

Commitment can be inspiring, a challenge that uses all of the will power and drive that is left to take recovery actions.Mostly, it takes surrender.

Do not debate with an alcohol or drug abuser if he does not want help. #addiction

Always ask the question, "Do you want help?" If you are talking to a loved one ask, "Does he want help?"

Think of our children and not self when deciding to legalize cannabis!

Cannabis impairs short term memory and creates difficulty with thinking abilities (Anderson BM, et. al,, 20110; Boyce A, et. a.. 2008).

Do you wants your children to be handicapped?

Expensive Addiction treatment is not necessary.

Treatment is very cost effective if you go to the right place. The best kept secret is that the survivors of addiction are the best teachers. Go to programs that can help too identify and change the blocks to recovery - like my treatment program. My Freedom Quest has been here since 1986 and we have had good success since. I have clients who are still sober and clean over 25 years. Call me for more at (407) 786-1913.
