What To Do if You Need Help with Alcohol or an Addiction
Acknowledging you need for help for the disease of addiction is a difficult first step on your road to recovery. As with most chronic diseases, there are many misconceptions about addiction and addiction treatment.
Fifty years ago, chemical dependency was widely believed to be a moral weakness. This belief created a social stigma that prevented millions from reaching out for help. Today we understand that addiction is not caused by moral weakness or a lack of personal character – it is a medical disease over which the addict has no control. As with other diseases, without help the outcome is often tragic.
Those suffering from addiction have a difficult time recognizing the disease in themselves. When confronted with their behavior, people suffering from addiction might shield themselves by minimizing, rationalizing or blaming. Their denial and isolation can eventually lead to their death. Recovery begins by recognizing one’s denial. That’s where we hope these frequently asked questions and addiction resources will help. To succeed in addiction treatment and enter recovery, the first step is admitting you have a problem. Then, after you’re admitted to a rehab center, treatment can be tailored to your specific circumstances.
At Cumberland Heights our treatment programs encompass the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions of recovery through professional excellence, the principles of the 12 Steps, and a safe, loving environment.
