People who are close to someone with an addiction understand that addictions touch many lives.
Lancaster, OH (PRWEB) September 28, 2013
Drug Rehab Center Lancaster commends recovering addicts who seek treatment, and recognizes that it takes a great amount of courage and dedication to seek treatment for addiction, which is why they are working to change the face of addiction. Most people know that addiction can lead to numerous negative consequences, including but not limited to health, financial, and personal problems. Drug Rehab Center Lancaster is working to create a positive image of addiction and recovery by emphasizing the positive changes a person undergoes while seeking treatment.
Chris T., an addiction recovery specialist at Drug Rehab Center Lancaster, explains how including close friends and family members into addiction treatment can help remove the negative stigma that can be associated with addiction and rehab, saying, “Some people are reluctant to seek help for their substance abuse problems because they are afraid of being judged by both society and their loved ones. Drug Rehab Center Lancaster incorporates therapy sessions with family members and close friends into our treatment programs. This helps recovering addicts know that they are not alone and are not being judged by those that matter the most to them.”
Drug Rehab Center Lancaster encourages patients to take part in group therapy and counseling sessions. Chris explains, “People who are close to someone with an addiction understand that addictions touch many lives. Watching their loved one get the help they need to become sober can lift a huge weight off their shoulders. When a recovering addict sees someone they are close to supporting them and being proud of them, it encourages them to continue with their sobriety achievements.” According to Chris, “Rehab is not a punishment for people with addictions; it is a way to change your life for the better. Each and every patient at Drug Rehab Center Lancaster is to be commended for seeking help with their addiction and encouraged to keep making positive changes in their lives.”
