Addiction treatment never truly ends. Over time it will become more habit than constant struggle. In the beginning though, it will be a moment to moment struggle.
It gets better though, becoming a matter of day-to-day maintenance instead of conscious choices throughout the day. Addiction treatment becomes less about constantly thinking of what needs to be done in each situation. Instead of choices, you will have developed habits. When your first reaction to the question of drug use is no you will have reached a high plateau in addiction treatment. You will be living a life style of drug rehabilitation.The desire to quit in the beginning will be strong. That is natural and shouldn’t discourage you. But don’t quit. Don’t let the desire to quit bother you too much. The beginning is the hard work, but it will be rewarding. This is where the foundation is laid for the habits of rehabilitation. All of these struggles that you face down now will be the keys to addiction treatment for the rest of your life.
We have one main struggle as well.. We struggle to overcome the biggest myth of recovery: Addiction can be overcome alone. Attempting addiction treatment alone is a sure path to relapse. We know because we hear their stories when they eventually come to us for true addiction treatment.
Attempting recovery on your own can be disastrous. A failed attempt at addiction treatment can leave you disappointed or even depressed. This can lead to your drug abuse to a place even more desperate than it was prior to your attempt at recovery. Asking yourself to complete addiction treatment on your own is simply more pressure than you should be expected to deal with. We have the knowledge that is necessary to make addiction treatment a reality. We are also available to be a part of you team. A team that can ensure your success.
