If you’re suffering with chemical dependency and looking for help in breaking free, you’ve taken the first step by visiting our website. Recovery Ways is committed to helping you overcome substance addiction and regain control of your life. But we want you to understand that the recovery process is not easy. It is a long process which requires time and perseverance, usually extending well beyond the time you might spend in a residential treatment program.
Unfortunately, many of the people suffering from chemical dependency enter a treatment program with unrealistic expectations of success. Some expect a quick-fix solution that will help them break their addiction with very little effort. That’s not the way it works. You didn’t become an addict overnight; you will not break your addiction overnight either. But with the dedicated care and concern of a licensed, clinical treatment center, and the love and support of friends and family, you can break the addiction cycle and reclaim your life, chemical-free.
When you first enter a residential treatment program you will probably find the early days to be refreshing, almost like a huge weight lifted off your shoulders. That’s because you will finally be getting the help you know you need which relieves some of the guilt associated with chemical dependency. But after a few days, the reality of the treatment program will begin to set in, and it will become easy to be discouraged and frustrated. During these times it is important for you to persevere; to refuse to give up; to commit yourself to completing your treatment – not only for your own benefit, but also for the benefit of your loved ones. If you determine to push through your fears and frustrations, you will come out the other side into a bright tomorrow.
When your residential treatment program is completed, an aftercare program will be there to help you stay on track as you learn to adjust to your new, addiction-free life. Support groups are an excellent outlet for you to share both the joys and temptations of life, with others who are living through the same experiences. And spiritual leaders will be essential in helping you focus your life in order to find the meaning and purpose you were lacking during your time of substance abuse. The combination of all these support resources is your key to remaining chemical free into the future.
You can overcome addiction with the help of Recovery Ways. All you need is the time, perseverance, and firm commitment to take your life back. Make that commitment today. Do it for your family, for your friends, and for yourself.
