Becoming a New Man in Recovery in 2016January 18, 2016 - Addiction, Alcohol and Drug, Holiday, Recovery - 0 Comments
Drug dependence does not get better by itself. Addictions often get worse with time and more difficult. For most addicts, time increases their dependence and the risks to their health and safety as they do more and more dangerous things to get drugs. Alcohol addiction causes physical damage that builds by the day, and damage to vital organs and systems increase with time.
Families Help Start Recovery
The love and support of the family are all-important factors in the decision to seek treatment and recovery. The family can feel the effects of drug abuse and alcohol dependency. They can see how addiction diminishes the life and contributions of a dependent family member. They understand the risks and dangers associated with addiction and drug-related behaviors. The path to recovery represents greater safety for the addict, and it can save lives.
Families Help Sustain Recovery
Once in treatment, the recovering addict must develop and maintain a commitment to a lifetime of sobriety. The recovery must proceed from day to day, and some days will challenge the recovery. Family determination and encouragement can help, and particularly when the recovering addict feels the need for additional levels of confidence and support. Family bonds motivate recovery as the addict learns new and better ways to make decisions and participate more fully in family life.
