Throughout life, many people will have tried at least one drug of abuse at some point, but drug abuse in itself is not necessarily equivalent to addiction. So, what constitutes addiction for some drug abusers, while others never become addicted?
Drug Abuse and Addiction Can be Overcome
Understanding the dangers of drug abuse and addiction for both the addicts and society as a whole can project a dark picture. Indeed, addiction is a bleak life, but there is hope. Countless addicts have turned their lives around to become healthy, sober, and productive members of society with the help of effective addiction rehabilitation treatment.
It is not enough to merely get an individual off drugs to make a lasting change in his or her life. The only way to overcome the destruction of addiction is to rehabilitate oneself, which includes the mind, body, and spirit. At A Forever Recovery, we work with the whole person, get to the underlying issues that exacerbate addictive and destructive behaviors, and help to empower each to heal him or herself, growing self-awareness, and avoid the dangers of relapse. Our individualized treatment programs give each person an environment that is comfortable and tailored to his or her preferences and belief systems. This enables us to provide the most personal and effective treatment for sustained sobriety and recovery from addiction.
