Many people think that they can just choose to stop using drugs or alcohol on their own and that’s all it will take. What they realize after a day or two is that their addiction has taken over their life and they are reminded of their habit constantly throughout the day. A specific place, a smell or just hanging out with a friend can trigger the newly sobered addict into strong drug or alcohol cravings making their willpower to not use crumble and eventually disintegrate altogether.
Rainbow Canyon Retreat is a long-term drug rehab program that knows how to treat addiction for what it really is; not a disease but a physical and emotional problem stemming from underlying issues that must be resolved. Their program works to get clients physically off the drugs or alcohol they are addicted to in addition to addressing the initial issues that drove the person to choose substance abuse as an answer to their problems. A graduate of Rainbow Canyon Retreat doesn’t need any drugs, alcohol or prescription medications to handle life when they complete treatment. They have fully recovered and have learned all the tools and skills necessary to remain clean and sober on their own.
