IS THERE A PROBLEM? DO NOT HESITATE TO ADMIT IT! THERE IS A WAY –AS LONG AS WE ARE ALIVE!

The dependence of a person on anything is a disease that affects the biological, psychological, social and spiritual aspects of life. You cannot give up; if you have taken a number of attempts aimed only at one or a few aspects of life and did not get the desired result. Unfortunately, many people think that if there is a high-paying job, a family, and children – it will help solve the problem of dependence on drugs or alcohol. Experienced professionals have shown that, in fact, people who have been long dependent on bad habits, a lot of them lost heart and life, and many did not have time to learn.

 

Is there a magical pill?

We all dream of a “magic pill”, take, and after a month or two you are absolutely healthy and happy, and all the horrors of addiction, all you had to go through yourself, family, loved ones during periods of active use in the past. Just so doing searching for fast recovery paths, relatives of drug addicts and alcoholics are beginning to be disappointed and say that the way out of the web does not exist. Or another common mistake – we begin to think that after the detox procedures, our loved one is aware of their situation and their problems, take themselves in hand, and will manifest myself to cope.

 

The reality is…

In fact, the practice of all professionals working with chemically dependent people has shown that to cope with the problem only 0.1% of the total number of people can. And it’s not in the power of the will, and that craving for consumption has a deep psychological foundation and to achieve sustained remission or recovery takes time and inpatient rehabilitation. It can take anywhere from a month to a year, depending on the patient and his recovery dynamics. And at this time what is required is under constant and close supervision of experienced psychologists and therapists for drug dependency. Yes, there is no magic pill, it is a long process. But it’s time for you if it is dedicated to the success and recovery? How much time is wasted during periods of active use? And how much money is spent by the family for his illness and the solution to the problems to which it leads? And if every sick thought for a second about it, drug addiction and alcoholism are no longer simply be the sentence.

 

The rehab experience

The global experience has shown that only inpatient rehabilitation the sick person allows him to return to a normal and happy life. And not look in this case only on willpower. Those who rely solely on their stamina are the most difficult patients on the road to recovery. Every drug addict or alcoholic has to find the strength to admit that he needs help and a special rehabilitation to finally get out of the “swamp”, in which he has fallen. In this case it is necessary to trust the professionals and to apply to the rehabilitation centers.

Of course, one of the main rules of the center – it is anonymous. And remember that the personal support from family and friends depends largely on the successful treatment and recovery.

 

This Assistance is Needed In Order To Get Well

Addiction is an alienating process, and the key to success in recovery is a rediscovery of human connection, an understanding that the addict is not alone in his or her struggle. The recovery process will have ups and downs, and it is important to take pride in forward steps and to understand the behavior and thought patterns that lead to backward steps.

The essence of the recovery process is to recognize the obvious fact that a person is unable to cope with drug or alcohol addiction, and this is why he needs help. This assistance is needed in order to get well, and to do this in life needs radical changes, as drugs or alcohol for life to reduce the process of their use.

The main goals of our treatment are reduced to ensure that the patient believed that he was able to refrain from taking drugs and that he had enough strength to change their former way of life and to carry out favorable changes for him.

  • We recognized the powerlessness before drugs, admitted that they are unable to manage their lives.
  • Only a being greater than us could possibly save us.
  • We decided to dedicate our lives to the service of God.
  • We searched our souls deeply and found our morals.
  • We were prepared to allow God to cleanse us of our sins.
  • Humbly, we beseeched Him to come to our aid.
  • We noted the names of everyone who we had ever wronged and sought to make reparations.
  • We apologized and compensated the damage, except in cases where it could anyone harm.
  • We continuously carry out self-control and, when we make mistakes, we correct them immediately.
  • Having been spiritually awakened as a result of these actions, we are now committed to sharing the good news with others.

 

We don’t have to perform all at once

We did not become addicted in one day and we realize that healing will take time: slow and steady wins – on going. We also understand that more than anything else, our recovery will prevent the rejection of our spiritual principles, or indifference to them. Three of the most needed spiritual qualities: honesty, open-mindedness and willingness to new ideas. If you have them, you will be able to achieve your goal.

We believe that our approach to drug disease, in the sense of one addict helping another in the therapeutic aspect is unique

We know that in practice, addicts themselves are best placed to understand and help each other. We believe that the sooner we look into the face of their problems within our society, in everyday life, the sooner we will be equal and reasonable, reliable members of the community.

Life after Rehabilitation

The hardest part of recovering from addiction is getting back to a normal life. It is important to be in a loving and supportive environment where the people that surround an addict are there to help lift them up and not tear them down or tempt them to use again. Sometimes a recovering opiate addict is best living with family, and other times they are best living in a sober home. Either way, establishing healthy routines for work, eating and social activities will help a recovering opiate addict stay sober.
