Without a doubt, the overcoming of drug abuse is an incredible feat. Maintaining sobriety is just as hard as obtaining it, especially when addicts leave their rehabilitation centers and return home to an environment serving as a constant reminder of old habits. This and countless other reasons constitute why it is gravely important to find a program that offers tools to beat addiction, once and for all.
Regrets, environmental reminders and old family/friends are often some of the toughest factors for an addict to deal with. For this reason drug treatment programs that work are what will really help one to move past an addiction permanently. Ones that devote an entire section of treatment to addressing the past are very successful.
The program should also use responsibility-driven tools, and give clients the opportunity to make amends for past wrong-doing and repair supportive relationships. Doing so, former addicts can return to their lives with a fresh and empowered outlook as well as a support system of positive people.
Many drug addicts admit they wish they had never wasted years of their lives consumed in substance abuse. This feeling is normal. However, if you have spent months or years in and out of drug treatment and still deal with past regrets connected to your drug and alcohol abuse, and your regret leads you into depression and continued abuse, you should seek help specifically with this cyclic pattern. There may be biophysical and interpersonal aspects of your addiction history that need to be addressed before lasting success can be achieved.
Further, a good treatment program does not employ the theory “once an addict, always an addict.” Through visiting one of our various rehabilitation centers across the United States, we are confident you, too, can join our many successes in your journey to recovery. Drug use is a choice; you can change the direction of your life and turn things around whenever you choose to—it’s never too late.
