Don’t let anyone say that it’s too late. Research has shown that the opposite is true, and I can attest to this, because it’s something that I see every single day.
Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
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, has published a new blog post that asks one of the most profound and consequential questions imaginable: is it ever too late to recover from addiction?
Fortunately, as the post quickly clarifies, the answer is a definitive “no” – despite what some recovery centers across the country believe.
“It doesn’t matter how old someone is, how long they’ve suffered from an addiction, or whether they’re addiction is to drugs, alcohol, or a combination,” commented A Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “The bottom-line fact is that it’s always possible to recover from addiction, provided that an individual has access to leading-edge treatment methodologies, qualified and caring staff, a strong support system, ongoing counseling, and perhaps most importantly, the deep desire to live addiction free.”
The post also provides key factors that individuals and their families should consider when choosing the right kind of addiction recovery program for their unique needs. These considerations include (but are not limited to):
- Whether the treatment should be in an outpatient program, or in a residential treatment center.
- The type of treatment available, which can include self-help programs, holistic programs, faith-based programs, cognitive programs (among other methods and approaches).
- Whether a center offers detoxification treatment, which for some individuals is an essential part of their recovery plan.
Added Per Wickstrom: “I’ve personally struggled with addiction in the past, and have worked with thousands of incredible people and their families who have hit rock bottom and never thought they’d see another day – let alone experience a life free of addiction. Again, let me state unequivocally that it’s never too late to recover from addiction. It doesn’t matter what has happened in the past! Don’t let anyone say that it’s too late. Research has shown that the opposite is true, and I can attest to this, because it’s something that I see every single day.”
