Change is Necessary for Lasting Sobriety

There are no quick fixes in the recovery process; Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs can help you reach your goal of lasting sobriety.

It would be great if there were a painless and quick way to end addiction; to wake up and find your cravings gone and the desire to use drugs or alcohol no longer controlling your thoughts. What addict wouldn’t want to skip the physical pain of the withdrawal process or the grueling journey of recovery? While this quick fix would be ideal to many struggling with achieving sobriety, it would not heal their psychological and physiological issues that accompany their addiction problem. Too truly recover from addiction, more than just the physical act of using has to change. There are layers upon layers of underlying and deeply rooted issues that must be uncovered and addressed in order for the addicted individual to be able to heal emotionally and psychologically from their addiction.

The draw of using drugs or alcohol is how easy the use of these substances brings on a high. The high the user gest from using drugs or alcohol seemingly melts away life’s problems leaving them feeling numb and able to escape from their problems, even if only for a little while. When given the choice, most addicts continue to use despite the negative consequences because it is the most simple and sure way of avoiding the problems in their life. In order for an addict to make a real recovery from addiction they must put distance between themselves and their addictive lifestyle as well as develop new skills to enable them to maintain their long-term sobriety.
