Drug Addiction Recovery
A Unique and Individual Process
Looking at the prospect of drug addiction recovery is a scary thing. Strong denial of the problem, denial of the need for any help, is inherent in drug use problems. So is a lot of history-painful episodes, troubled relationships, emotional trauma and even medical issues.
It may appear very difficult to even start getting help. However, there is a process with drug addiction recovery that works. There are steps you can take; small steps beginning with the one you are taking now. No matter where you are at this point in the picture there is a way out.
Your path to ongoing recovery is unique to you. It's individual to your needs, your situation and your intentions. At Veritas Counseling we know that, and work with you to show you how to tap into your own faith and courage to create a happier life.
At the same time, we'll reveal the key steps in successful recovery from drug dependence. And we'll be with you all the way.
Look At The Problem
See What Is Happening
Focus On What To Do About It
The first step is to look clearly at the problem. Get a thorough education on chemical abuse and recovery from it.
Until you do this, nothing can change for the better.
Just as military strategy says to know your enemy, seeing the reality of drug addiction is what reveals the issues so you can get a handle on them.
Your situation may be complex.
- You may be having trouble at work. It's hard to get up in the morning and face all the things you have to do. You're afraid the job is going away…or maybe you're having a tough time finding work.
- Maybe your family is in turmoil. Things seem to seesaw back and forth between stormy rages and stony silences. Family members have become distant. Everyone is on an emotional roller coaster.
- Perhaps good friends have disappeared, confused by and unable to deal with what seems to them irrational behavior. Maybe the only friends left are ones who use like you do and who also are in denial of the damage your use is doing to you. After all, if you seek help for drug addiction recovery, will they be there for you?
Untangling all the threads of addiction starts with focusing on the underlying causes. In that way you can see how they play out in your life. As you turn around one area, the others get better, too.
Stop Toughing It Out
Get The Support You Need
Learn To Manage Your Quality Of Life
If you believe that you should be able to take care of this on your own, you're pretty normal. After all, our country was built by rugged individualists, wasn't it?
In a way…but early settlers depended on each other, especially when things got tough. They had barn-raisings and quilting bees. They brought in the harvest on each others farms. Neighbors gathered at births and deaths. Most of all they depended on God for power and joy, no matter the circumstances.
You don't have to hang out there on your own. In fact, it's darn hard to get sober and stay sober without real support. Professional help makes that happen.
It's understandable if you are wary and cautious. There are a lot of mixed messages out there about drug addiction recovery, and a lot of people trying to tell you what to do. It's important to look for guidance from someone who knows how to walk you through the process.
Begin A New Life
Recover Joy In Living
It probably sounds far fetched to think that your life could work for you again. What would that look like?
Imagine getting up in the morning excited about your work. You say hello to your family-even if that's only a dog. You have a cup of coffee and look around you, feeling grateful to be alive.
Off to work. You arrive refreshed and ready to tackle the day. Co-workers who used to shun you are friendly and suddenly cooperative. Sure, there are problems and issues, but you know they're just part of the job.
You are free to spend evenings and weekends doing those things that make you feel good about yourself. Games with the kids. Movies with friends. Hobbies that you used to enjoy. Time with your husband or wife talking about your day.
You can have all this-adjusted to what you want, of course. It won't be easy, but it can be done. It won't happen over night, but it can be done.
