Recovery is Addiction Freedom

Free From Addiction - A New View

Recovery is Freedom from Addiction Addiction is about Control – Recovery is about Freedom Let us explore how recovery is addiction freedom. The desire for freedom is one of the most basic human emotions. From the beginning, young children assert themselves as independent choice makers and launch themselves into violent tantrums when their freedoms are denied or stifled. Later, in dramatic displays of sovereignty, teenagers rebel against authority at every turn. Adults are no different. What we want and value most in life is pure and simple freedom. Rightfully so, we worship it as our god-given right. And like children, we too erupt in protest when our free will is threatened. No matter the age, we want control of our lives and we have little tolerance if someone or something encroaches on them. Control This is why addiction is torturous…

Endless Sober Summer

Endless Sober Summer in tropical paradise at Serenity Vista Alcohol & Drug Rehab

Sobriety Most people whether sober or not are familiar with the classic surf film The Endless Summer – or at least most have heard the phrase at one point in their lives or another. The phrase conjures up images of swaying palm trees, lazy Hawaiian slide guitars, and paper umbrella fanned out over sweet tropical cocktails. As if in a Beach Boys song, endless summer means long unending days on the beach followed by warm, tiki torch nights with friends. We’ve all dreamed of an “endless summer” before. And many people, at some point in their lives, have even had a taste of it. They can remember those feelings of light minds and carelessness that accompany summer. Summar has a particularly tantalizing appeal in 2020. Much of the world has been under strict quarantine with strict social distancing due to…

Addiction, Anxiety & Depression

Drug Rehab costs

Addiction, Anxiety, & Depression – Common Co-Occurring Disorders Co-Occurring Disorders – What does this mean? Co-Occurring disorder is a replacement term. It replaces the terms dual disorder and dual diagnosis. The term refers to an individual who has a co-existing substance-use disorder and a mental illness. Working in the addiction field, we hear the term co-occurring disorder often. The term can apply in the vast majority of people seeking help for alcoholism or other forms of addiction. Addiction manifests in many ways. And many of those ways overlap with symptoms that may be termed mental health conditions. Thus, at Serenity Vista, we treat addiction as the primary condition. That includes it’s many and varied manifestations. Therefore, the solution is to treat the whole person. In contrast, we do not focus on one specific diagnosis. The solution encompasses body, mind, and spirit. Therefore, it is…
