I Can’t Take it Anymore! My Husband Needs Rehab!

my-husband-needs-rehab

Dear Serenity Vista, Can You Help? My Husband Needs Rehab. The Early Days When my husband and I first got married I knew about his family and the past. His father was a highly respected doctor by day but a mean alcoholic by night. We would stay up late into the night when my husband was in law school and talk about all the things we’d never do to our future children. I couldn’t have foreseen our own need for addiction rehab someday. It started simply enough, a drink after classes and maybe a few more on weekends. Once my husband graduated from law school though, his drinking escalated. He started coming home drunk and would verbally berate me. I became his emotional ‘punching bag’ of sorts for the trials he had overcome during business hours. The First Round of…

Addiction is not a Moral Issue

addiction is not a moral issue - Serenity Vista Drug Rehab

Shame, Guilt and Remorse Accompany Addiction   You fed your addiction and now you’re feeling the shame, remorse, and guilt. It might be just the fact that you drank or used again last night. You’ve been trying to quit but the temptation was too much for you to withstand. Or maybe you did something that you really regret: You “drank and dialed,” spent money you couldn’t afford to, or need to apologize to people for whatever you did. The fact that you don’t even remember how you got home or you had to look out the window to see how your car is parked – or if it’s even there, makes things even worse! You’re mortified. Whatever it was that happened, you lost control and now you’re beating yourself up. Despite what you may believe, addiction is not a moral…

Hiding Drinking

hiding drinking - Serenity Vista

Hiding Drinking – Sign of a Real Problem Many people struggling with addiction think that if they’re hiding drinking , they’re hiding their addiction. Stashes of alcohol Are you someone who hides alcohol? Do you have a bottle stashed behind the laundry soap or the cereal on the top shelf? Or perhaps you keep a flask behind the tools in the garage or shed. Maybe there are some nips in the bottom drawer of your desk at work or in your purse. We’ve heard of many ingenious methods of hiding your drinking – and maybe we even tried some of them ourselves. Do you drink alone?

Why Am I An Alcoholic?

why won't my spouse go to Al-Anon

Alcoholic – Just like Dad I said I would never become like my Dad, but I was. Growing up in an alcoholic home gave me an opportunity to hone and sharpen my survival-skills-set. It was always a gauntlet navigating the various stages of a drunk-father and a codependent-crazy mother. My two sisters were busy pretending everything was ‘perfect’ and hiding the evidence of our dysfunctional and violent family life. I swore I was going to get out of the madness by working hard, keeping my head down, and being successful unlike my ‘failure of a father’.  I got out as soon as I could and any backward looks were rare. Through my compulsive and obsessive work ethic, financial success was evident. The perfect show house, the head-turning car, the investments, beautiful new wife… ahh yes, I had arrived! The Slow…

Addiction Problems Grow and are Complex. Serenity Vista offers solutions, alcoholism, drug rehab centers

Relapse Again Now What? You’ve had a relapse again. Now what? The word relapse is perhaps the most ominous word in the addiction recovery vocabulary. Why?

The emotional stress can seem unbearable. You’re feeling shame and guilt. You’re embarrassed. An overwhelming, gut-wrenching, all-consuming sense of failure fills you to the core. Your body aches with misery. You want to hide away from the public shaming and ridicule you are positive will follow if anyone found out. What you’re feeling is normal. It’s what you…

Gratitude in Recovery

Gratitude is Key in Addiction Recovery Some people say the A.A. should stand for Attitude Adjustment, and that is exactly what has to happen if a person has any chance at all at staying healthy in recovery or sober for any length of time. Here are some tips for gratitude in recovery to help you foster an “attitude of gratitude”: Make a gratitude list We suggest leaving the keyboard, and writing this out the old-fashioned way with pen and paper. If you are having trouble coming up with things you are grateful for, think about some really big things like breathing, eating, eyesight, friends and so on. Even if you don’t really feel grateful, write them down anyway, and in the process, you may find your attitude adjusting. Drop blame Remember, if you are pointing your finger at someone else,…
