Erie, PA (PRWEB) September 28, 2013
The dedicated staff members at Drug Rehab Center Erie understand that it takes a great amount of courage and dedication to seek treatment for addiction, and strive to help patients feel proud of their sober accomplishments. Drug Rehab Center Erie is committed to changing the face of addiction and promoting a positive image of recovering addicts. Most people know that addiction can lead to numerous negative consequences, including but not limited to health, financial, and personal problems. Drug Rehab Center Erie is working to create a positive image of addiction and recovery by emphasizing the positive changes a person undergoes while seeking treatment.
A certified addiction specialist at Drug Rehab Center Erie, Laura R., 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.” Drug Rehab Center Erie encourages patients to take part in group therapy and counseling sessions. According to Laura, “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 Erie is to be commended for seeking help with their addiction and encouraged to keep making positive changes in their lives.”
Laura also 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 Erie 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.” Patients at Drug Rehab Center Erie are now not only supported by the staff, but by those closest to them as well.
