OK, be real… First of all, how long have you tried to STOP your addiction? How many times have you told yourself “this is the last time”? You can be an addict who does not use for a while but if you still have cravings and need your fix every so often, are you really in control?
you do not have cravings for drugs anymore, you do not need drugs to operate in life; drugs are not part of any solution in your life anymore, you don’t have to push them away; they are just out of your life and you don’t have to think about it for the rest of your life.
If you have been able to do this on your own – Bravo! You are one of the very few.
If your recovery is not that good, I suggest you to read on.
Very few people can achieve drug addiction recovery without help and without a rehab treatment center. There’s no need to be ashamed of this – just realize that you need help and ask for it.
Why not receive the drug rehab in a safe, caring environment surrounded by trained professionals who have years of experience helping addicts get off drugs and learn the lifestyle changes that are necessary to stay off drugs?! How many times do you want to go through it alone before you decide that getting off drugs and staying off drugs involves more than just not using? It requires a lifestyle change that includes changing the way we think, the basis we use for making decisions, and learning to make wise choices for your life. That is why we NEED rehab treatment centers… we need treatment.
You don’t need me to tell you how hard it is for an addict to stop using. If it was easy, there wouldn’t be addicts, there would be users.
The professionals in the treatment centers have the educations and the experience to understand the pain, the self-delusion, the self-derision, the doubts, the slips, the relapses, the needs, the tears, the anger… How can we stop our own addiction when one of our best and most used talents is justifying our drug use, our behaviors, and our thoughts. A drug rehab counselor can show you where your thinking errors are. Although we may all have similar problems, each of us is unique and has different strengths and weaknesses. Much of the treatment center programs are programmed for all clients, but individual treatment plans are necessary because you are an individual. Your thinking errors and perspectives need to be looked at, examined, and your thought breakdown identified. We all have it. That place where we decided, for some reason, that “it was OK to not care about anything or anybody”, “only the drug is important”.
Can you stop your addiction yourself? You may stop using. Maybe for a long time. But your addictive behavior, your addictive thinking, will probably not change without rehab. Without rehab you will still be a non-using addict, not a recovered addict.
Rehab treatment centers can help you start on the road to recovery, help you recover your self-respect, your friends, your family, your future… your life. Choose treatment… choose recovery… choose a treatment center.
