Overcome Drug Addiction Without Rehab
Should you attempt to overcome drug addiction without rehab or any other drug abuse intervention assistance? This is something you should seriously consider if your aim is to take over complete control of the entire drug abuse recovery effort.
This is one battle you need to wage and win alone. Family and friends can support and cheer you on from the bleacher seats but you alone must hit the game-winning homerun.
The average street or prescription drug abuser has been reared and brought up in a social and political environment which often berates individual effort. It has been my personal experience that drug abuse rehab centers are notorious for ‘doing your thinking for you.’
A participating drug abuser is led to believe the rehab program can take care of any psychological difficulties the drug abuser may experience while involved with the program.
There is little incentive for self-evaluation or introspection beyond the confines of what is made available in group discussions with other addicts or encounter sessions – with or without the participation of drug counselors. Everything is prepared and handed to you in a neat and tidy package that screams out the words; “it’s my way or the highway.”
This confrontational approach to psychological, emotional and physical recovery from street drug addiction or prescription drug abuse is well-suited for those who desire and often feel the need to have someone watch over and berate them for every wrong move they make – much like a protective parent or guardian.
Such a mentality often brings in its wake the belief there will always be someone out there to lead the way back to sobriety, wellness and sanity whenever necessary.
So, what’s the problem with this scenario? Plenty! If drug rehabilitation entails the arresting, reversal and recovery from an addictive tendency to particular drugs, how can someone who ‘graduates’ from a drug rehab program be considered cured if the drug habit has been substituted and replaced by the rehab program’s environment?
Stay with me, I’ll explain my reasoning. The rehab effort – as well-meaning as it may be – has become yet another addiction for the drug abuser. The strong psychological and emotional driving forces behind the addictive cravings for drugs find another outlet for expression. The drug abuser simply exchanges one addiction for another.
In time, when the drug abuser has an occasional relapse and falls face-first off the wagon, who will get the blame? The rehab program, of course. After all, this entire fiasco was THEIR idea wasn’t it?
They were the ones who claimed to know what the drug abuser needed to do to kick the habit. Why should the drug abuser accept blame for the relapse when he or she was being told what to do – just following orders?
On the flip side of the coin the rehab center blames the drug abuser for not having the motivation or backbone to stay on the wagon. Whew boy! What a mess. You’re screwed on every count and all because you handed over control of your recovery endeavor to someone else. You never gave YOURSELF a chance to do this alone and, consequently, do it right.
If you want to avoid that kind of merry-go-round learn how to take your recovery and healing effort into your own hands. This way if and when you periodically relapse you can rely upon your own will power and emotional stability to quickly get you back on track.
