Addiction is chronic. Treatment is a daily program taught by survivors.

I work with many addicts and alcoholics who cut back or quit in their earlier years and then have a serious problem when they get out of control two, three, five or ten years later. They are not aware of the choinicity of addiction. It requires daily treatment taught by twelve step members who teach vigilance, consistency and model the joy of doing this.

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.

Enablers are in alcoholic/addictive families and in politics. Enabling is For the Benefit of the Enabler.

Whether the enabler is a parent protecting a child or a politician protecting his money and power, the enabler benefits. The parent sleeps better when the child is out of jail so he pays the fine. The politician enables the weak, not just the one who deserves help, and prevents the consequences from occurring. The consequences are how the addict learns. So the addict does not learn.

After 50 years in addictions tx, I am sure that I can't treat heroin with a drug.
