When Do You Give Up on an Addict?
Many addicts have gone through treatment in some form or another. The addict is told that they didn’t work the program and this is why they have relapsed. The reason that an addict relapses is the program didn’t work for them or they were not ready for treatment.
Most programs have extended aftercare programs that they offer once you have completed their program. This option is not for everyone as most people have their jobs or family to get back to. But for those who need a lifestyle change this option for the treatment of addiction is the best answer to treat the addiction. Intensive out-patient and sober living give the transition that the Addict needs in order to remain drug free. Most Drug Treatment programs have this option and we highly recommend this to our clients. It is very easy to stay clean and sober in a Treatment Program for Drugs and Alcohol once you finish it takes some work and support to remain that way.
There is no quick fix for Addiction sometimes it can take years to fully overcome and not think about your Drug Of Choice. This is where good friends and support come in everyone needs a checks and balance support group weather you are an addict or not.
