A Straightforward, Simple Solution
Get Well And Stay Well
Prevent Relapses

Addiction is a disease process, not a choice. It's a primary, progressive, chronic, frequently fatal illness characterized by continuous or periodic:

  • loss of control over the amount and frequency of use,
  • preoccupation with use/drinking,
  • continued use in spite of negative consequences,
  • and distortions in thinking, most notably denial of the problem.

Does this sound familiar?

Avoiding or ignoring drug or alcohol use problems or attempting to fix them by yourself is risky and dangerous. Like any other significant and life threatening illness, recovery requires treatment and help. Recovery requires accepting and pursuing spiritual, physical and emotional help and support. It requires a decision to get help and to use help.

Again, going it alone is both risky and dangerous.

Get through the tougher early stages of recovery with encouragement and support. Navigate a path to a sober life that includes liberal amounts of peace, happiness, joy and a purpose in living.

Alcohol and drug use problems can make marriage and family life very difficult and painful. There can be a lot of sadness, regret, hurt feelings, health problems for family and spouses, and a lot of fear about the future.

It is important to educate yourself about the nature of this problem, the effect on the family, and what you can do about it.

We have provided some basic guidelines to help you manage your feelings and your time in relation to your loved one who has the drug or alcohol problem. Obtaining support, encouragement and help for yourself is key.

Recovery, Faith, Hope
Recovery In The Long Term
