Alcoholism Treatment

‘Now’ is Always The Best Time If things start to go wrong – you don’t have to go with them The Best Time to go to Rehab is Before it is REALLY bad There is a saying in the rooms of recovery that a smart person can learn from their mistakes, but a wise person can learn from other people’s mistakes.

Panama, Central America Treatment for Alcoholism

Quality Addiction Treatment for Alcohol, Nicotine, Drugs, Ludopathy and other forms of Addiction in Panama Discovering that you or a loved one have a problem with alcohol, nicotine, marijuana, other drugs, or behaviors involving sex, ludopathy (gambling) or codependency can be very upsetting. Most likely you never imagined in your wildest dreams that you or your loved one would become an addict. You have seen success in so many other areas of life, right? A ‘take charge’ kind of person: work hard and play hard. But, little by slowly this picture of success has become a little shabbier at the edges. Secrets. Shame. Guilt.

One Day at a Time: Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow

Your cross to bear

Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow This prose is a nice reminder to live one day at a time: There are two days in every week about which we should not worry. Two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension. One of these days is yesterday, with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back yesterday. We cannot undo a single act we performed. We cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is gone. The other day we should not worry about is tomorrow. With its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise and poor performance. Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control. Tomorrow’s sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it will…

High-Functioning Alcoholism and the Dangers of Denial

High Functioning Alcoholics

The High-Functioning Alcoholic High-functioning alcoholism is harder to identify because it doesn’t fit the “drunk” stereotype. When people say the word ‘alcoholic,’ they instantly have a vision of an old man sitting in a park with a paper bag, with a can in it. Suzi MacDonald, Addictions Counsellor They don’t think of suburban moms or people with high-powered careers – but often, these people are fighting an internal battle with alcohol addiction that no one, including themselves, can clearly see. A high-functioning alcoholic, or HFA, is someone who is psychologically dependent on alcohol but able to live a normal life, continuing to perform in their social, professional and familial roles. While on the surface this type of alcoholism appears to have less impact, it presents its own set of dangers, including a more deeply entrenched denial and stronger resistance to…

Play the tape through

Play the Tape Through: A Strategy To Prevent Relapse Newcomers to recovery need all the help they can get! There is a little gem of a relapse prevention strategy we find especially helpful. We call this strategy, “Play the Tape Through”. A Kit of Spiritual Tools There is a shining promise made in the 12 Step recovery literature. Well, there are a LOT of promises throughout the literature. But, one promise is about being able to access a kit of spiritual tools. When, therefore, we were approached by those in whom the problem had been solved, there was nothing left for us but to pick up the simple kit of spiritual tools laid at our feet.   p. 25 Big Book Okay, that may sound kind of esoteric. So, let’s get right down to it. In very practical terms let’s talk through…
