The overwhelming, all-encompassing and virtually non-stop burden of addiction is in some ways impossible for people to understand if they -- fortunately for them -- have never traveled down that path.
Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) February 12, 2014
The latest blog post from A Forever Recovery, a leading addiction treatment center that has pioneered a moral reasoning approach to recovery that empowers each individual client to access the spiritual, cognitive, and fellowship support that they need, explores a critically important topic that couldn’t just salvage lives, but could ultimately save them as well: why drug addicts need to seek professional help.
“The overwhelming, all-encompassing and virtually non-stop burden of addiction is in some ways impossible for people to understand if they -- fortunately for them -- have never traveled down that path,” commented Per Wickstrom, CEO of A Forever Recovery. “As such, it’s invariably up to addicts themselves to be part of the solution. However, they certainly don’t have to, and frankly shouldn’t, do it alone. That’s where professional help isn’t just an option, for many addicts, it’s the difference between a life worth living, and one that could at any moment take a turn for the worse – and lead to the hospital, jail or, quite frankly, the morgue.”
According to the A Forever Recovery blog post, key reasons why drug addicts need professional help include:
- They’ll benefit from customized treatment plans that are designed for their specific needs, rather than a “one-size-fits-all” approach that may be ineffective or make the road to recovery longer than it could be.
- They’ll be able to rely on the structure and stability of a treatment plan, plus if they seek inpatient treatment, they’ll be in a supportive environment that is drug-free.
- They’ll draw support and strength from others who are on the journey to a better, healthier, addiction-free life, and build nourishing relationships that could last a lifetime.
“Rehab isn’t easy – and I’m speaking from personal experience,” added Per Wickstrom, who struggled with addiction in his youth. “However, I can say without hesitation that professional help makes all of the difference in the world. No matter how difficult the road ahead may be, it’s indescribably better than what most addicts will experience if they try to fight it alone. Finding an appropriate inpatient rehabilitation program is easy, confidential, and could be the most important decision that an individual and his or her family members and other loved ones make.”
