Drugs, Alcohol, and Other Addictions
Are you feeling trapped in a cycle of addiction? Do you want to break the cycle? Then we strongly encourage you to partake in addiction therapy. Addiction therapy should give you the ability to cope with negative reactions without turning to alcohol, drugs, or other substances and building healthy habits. Once you open this can of worms it is very difficult to get it out of your life. When an addiction is developed, the brain will wire itself to crave the reward of the substance. Once the substance is consistently used, the individual will develop a “tolerance” for it and end up using more of the substance to get the feeling associated with the drug. We are trained to handle these characteristics and help people walk away from them. Going through addiction therapy will allow you to reveal the deeper feelings that have caused you to reach for an unhealthy way to cope with the emotions. Even when you reach the point where you choose to withdraw from substance abuse, we know that your body will continue to crave the substance as it is in the process of detox. During detoxification, the brain has to rewire itself to adapt to the changes in its biochemicals that are produced. We can guide you along the journey of sobriety and help to navigate through this process.We can help you to identify “triggers” that could give you the urge to use again. Some of those triggers may be stress and life events that create stress, your social group, and even being present at a certain place. If you identify as someone who struggles with an addiction, it is okay! We encourage you to reach out now before it gets any worse. Here at Joyful Restoration, our desire is for you to win!
