Addiction Recovery Redirection - Recovery is truly a Gift!!!

 

The change from active addiction back to life is astounding. A recent study suggests that, given enough time in recovery, the reversal/healing of the brain and body can be significant.

Recovery is really easier than you think and is a joy. Drug free recovery works; the problem is highly treatable. 

Get the first year in with a good addiction therapist who has 'been there' and you will uncover most of the traps that take you back. Involve family to help you stay honest, accountable and loved.

Best Wishes,

Addiction Recovery Redirection - The Addiction Mind vs the Sober Mind.

Recovering alcoholics and addicts think "I never had it this good."

Don't give up on your loved one. Recovery takes time. Set boundaries & don't give up.

 

You can take care of yourself and your family if you get a good understanding of the disease and learn how to fend for yourself during the storm. Get off the merry-go-round of addiction by seeing a good addictions therapist who knows the problem and the solution for addiction as well as treatment for co-dependency. You can't afford not to do this and you have the time. Be good to yourself and get support and advice from a caring therapist who will show you how to steer the ship while you heal. Al-anon will help you find others who have 'been there' and no longer are.

In recovery from addiction, we eventually find a 'way of life' that far surpasses addiction!

We find peace and a Purpose instead of bondage. We find that we now belong; we have friends who know us. We appreciate our life and the people in it. Work for this and you will prosper!

Have a safe and happy journey,

Recovery from addiction takes a while but it works and gets really good.

The first year is up and down and, in my opinion, it's the best year. 'It was the worst of times and it was the best of times.' We learn to cope, hope and enjoy life.

AND it was worth all the time and effort.

Addiction recovery is highly treatable without drugs. Get the family involved!!!

 When properly educated, empowered and inspired, the family can bring their loved one to treatment.

When loved ones cease to shield him or her from the consequences, the addict/alcoholic becomes motivated to recover. The pain and loss are the answer and can lead to recovery.

There is no "Quick Addiction Fix!!!"

The "Quick Fix" is seductive but is untrue. There is much work to do.

Addicts/alcoholics must want to get sober and clean because of their severe pain and loss. Then there is much work to do.

There is no "Quick Fix!!!"  The "Quick Fix" is seductive but is untrue. Recovery takes work on all aspects of life. It is a rebuilding after the person becomes lost in a dark world.

Join me in my Quest for a better world!

The Myth of medicating Addicts/Alcoholics.

 Prescription drug abuse is rampant. We should be cautious when giving medication to those who have no control over their intake. Rigorous family work must be performed in order to structure the use of needed medication for addicts. Let's work toward an educated remedy for treating addicts which includes a spiritual approach and not a pill.

Enabling occurs when the addict/alcoholic is shielded from the consequences needed to recover.

It is usually unintentional. Do not shield him or her from the consequences as this is what motivates him or her to recover. The pain and loss are the answer and can lead to recovery.

Recovery from addiction involves abstinence and much character building.

We have done much harm. We are conditioned to repeat these unless we relearn our selfish ways.

Getting sober and clean because of a desire to get the job back or keep the wife is temporary.

Lasting recovery begins with surrender due to a severe beating.
