ADDICTION TREATMENT CENTERby Qarah Ict Qarah ICT
Addiction treatment centers are like light vessels shining
through the darkness of night, leading those who are lost in the ocean, unfit
to find safety.
Occasionally, the tensions of life can be so great, that they
seek to find an escape. They seek to find a way to drown out the misery and
find a source of comfort. But unfortunately, sometimes people who are only
looking for ways to escape the worries, stresses, and anxieties of life, end up
taking the wrong path.
They seek refuge in medicine and alcohol, gambling and
pornography. These "vices" start as minor gratification of curiosity.
We think that nothing of trying these out. But then they find that they can break
out their problems for a while and think nothing of the effects of indulging in
these. The experiences of "escapism" look to be pleasurable.
But then they turn into an addiction. And before you know it,
these addictions consume them. They become addicted. They are unable to manage
without getting your daily "fix" of these intoxicants. Lastly, the
addiction begins to ruin them from the inside out.
And that is where addiction treatment centers come to the rescue.
Their purpose is to not only bring them back from the brink of complete
self-destruction but to completely rehabilitate them. Their job is to set you
free of the shackles of addiction.
Their first goal is to help them accept the truth that they
have an addiction issue. They help them recognize that whatever issues they
were having in life that led them to this addiction can be sorted out through
Addiction treatment centers specialize in a variety of
practices and offer colorful services:
Substance abuse treatment - They help them detoxify their system and break them off of the drugs and the alcohol they had been abusing.
Interventionists - They can mediate in your life to stop them
from falling into temptation, through some form of accountability, whether it
be a buddy system, daily check-ins, monitoring, or psychological conditioning
Counsellors - If a filthy situation in their life led them
to their addiction then counsellors are always available on hand at addiction
treatment centers to help them manage. Some examples include divorce, death of
a loved one, failure in school, social rejection, loss of a job, low
self-esteem issues, and academic or career failure.
Sober living homes
- With any addiction, there is always a strong liability of going into absolution
(falling back into your addiction) soon after being discharged from addiction
treatment centers, so arrangements are usually made for them to live in what is
known as "sober living homes". These are related to residential
facilities and are sometimes owned and operated by non-profit organizations.
Alcohol and drugs are banned in these facilities. They can live together with
other recovering addicts and can have access to counsellors on the premises.
The truth is far from any of these misperceptions. Addiction
treatment centers, instead, are places where people are rehabilitated. Not only
do they completely control and defeat their addictions. They are also able to
reclaim their sense of identity and self-worth. Furthermore, they can develop
strong bonds of friendship with their peers through teamwork, mentoring, moral
support, guidance, and networking. They develop a sense of responsibility to
themselves, to each other, to their families, friends, and even to society. It
is there, at these addiction treatment centers, where they learn effective
coping and problem-solving procedures. In the end, they are suitable to come down
as upright citizens who are contributing appreciatively and giving back to
