People can go for years never thinking they have a problem. It is normal to compare ourselves to others and think “well, I’m not that bad.” We make justifications for our actions and feelings and believe that if a certain situation didn’t happen we wouldn’t have done something or felt a certain way. But there comes a time where the little voice in the back of our mind gets louder. Our conscious catches up with us and we believe that something has to change. Sometimes outside situations influence us to get to this point, or we arrive at this decision alone. Regardless of how you got here – there is a part of you that knows that you need help.
Recovery can be a long and bumpy road. At times, you may even feel it’s impossible. But it’s not if you have the right treatment. No matter how bad you feel your situation is or how powerless you feel, you can recover. You don’t have to wait unit you “hit rock bottom”. You can make a change at any time.
Most people who have an addiction or mental health concern do not decide to make a change out of the blue. Recovery is usually a more gradual process. In the early stages denial exists even after you have admitted you have a problem. You may make excuses and drag your feet. You may attempt to control your use, cut down, or weigh out the cost and benefits of not going to treatment and doing it by yourself. What people find is that through this stage the fear of quitting sets in, which in turn can actually increase the use of substances or increase symptoms of depression and anxiety. The sooner you seek help, the quicker you can start piecing back your life. Are you Scared? Worried? Stressed? Hopeless? You are not alone! Together, we will help you every step of the way.
