When you’re trying to convince yourself that it’s time to stop using drugs or alcohol, certain questions are likely to arise:
- “Using drugs makes me feel bad afterward. Why should I keep doing it?”
- “How can I ever stop taking drugs or drinking alcohol? I can’t imagine my social life without them.”
- “What’s the best way for me to get away from all this and give my life a new start?”
When you’re stuck in a cycle of addictive behavior, it’s hard to imagine a life without drugs and alcohol. The thought of starting over can be frightening. There can often be a lot of uncertainty involved in the decision to get clean and stay sober. Deep down, you know that you’re ready for a change. So how can you make your first move towards a new start?
You Can’t Turn Back Time, So Why Not Move Forward?
Imagine for a moment that you’ve turned back the clock to the days before you became addicted. What was that like? You’ve made mistakes. Maybe you’ve lost the trust of someone you love. Those struggling with drug addiction often carry a great burden of shame around their shoulders, feeling that they deserve the bad things that have happened to them. While you can’t escape responsibility for your actions, you can get a fresh start and begin the process of healing your mind, body, and relationships. Recovering from addiction is hard, but the results are well worth the effort. Remember that you’re not alone, and help is available to you. Instead of focusing on the past, turn your eyes toward the bright future that is yours for the taking.
A New Start Means A New Way Of Living
Our program will help you stay comfortable during the detox process. You’ll finally be able to take the time for yourself, the time you need in order to plan your new life. Your next steps may vary, and we’re here to help you explore your options. You may move on to an outpatient addiction treatment program, where you’ll check in a few times a week for several hours. It’s possible that a residential treatment center is the best move for you. Both types of treatment will teach you coping methods and help you learn more about why you started to use drugs and alcohol. The reasons behind addiction can often be surprising. Armed with the right knowledge and a new set of peers who are moving towards a life in recovery, you’ll have the tools you need to make the new start count.
