Ethical Drug Rehab: What to Look for (and What to Avoid) in an Addiction Treatment Center

ethical drug rehab

Ethical Drug Rehab If you or your loved one are struggling with addiction, you’re no stranger to how completely unmanageable it can make your life feel. Sooner or later, most of us who struggle with addiction reach a breaking point – a point at which we realize that the rationalizations, attempts at moderation and failed promises aren’t working, and it’s time to get professional help. But once you make the all-important decision to seek addiction treatment, another weighty one presents itself: Which center to choose? With most of the US rehab industry being private and underregulated, and virtually no objective information easily available online (most third-party referral sites are in fact managed and paid for by rehabs themselves), learning what to look for in a center is crucial to your treatment success. Here’s what you should look for – and…

Addiction Recovery Now

Best day rehab program for Addiction Recovery Now. Here and now is the time and place. Serenity Vista.

Addiction Recovery Now If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present.― Lao Tzu One of the surest ways to disrupt inner peace on the road to addiction recovery now is to live outside of the present moment. Rehashing a painful past cannot repair it. Worrying about the future does not solve tomorrow’s problems. Instead, both strip recovering addicts of their peace today and prevent them from living in the present. MIXED MEMORY – RELIVING AN INCOMPLETE PAST How often have you caught yourself swept up in old memories? For addicts, these thoughts of yesterday are usually dark and regretful reflections. Their minds are typically trapped in the past, reliving painful experiences repeatedly as if they are real…

Angel & Demon Voices of Addiction and Recovery

voices of addiction and recovery reviewed by Serenity Vista private international alcohol and drug rehab retreat; Listen to the small still voice

ANGEL & DEMON VOICES OF ADDICTION AND RECOVERY As most drug addicts and alcoholics know, addiction has two faces with two distinct voices. And an addict is constantly pulled between them. There are two voices of addiction and recovery. The first voice, who we’ll simply call the “angel”, is the voice of reason. This is the small and gentle self speaking up occasionally to let the alcoholic or addict know something is wrong. Their life is off track. They’re making poor choices. They’re letting friends and family down. All of these are signals sent from the angel. Others might call this voice one’s conscience, or “Jiminy Cricket.” Whatever the name, the fact remains. This inner voice is a constant presence in the mind of an addict. Deep down, they know their addictive behavior is destructive. Each day, after repeated failures and innumerable bad…

People from all walks of life and every corner of the world are all equally inspired and awed by the new experiences travel affords them. Far-off trips to magic lands refresh our viewpoints.

Life After Active Addiction

Life After Active Addiction can be one of transformation to freedom and abundance at Serenity Vista

Life After Active Addiction Most addicts live with a constant hunger for freedom yet can not imagine a healthy life after active addiction. They chase substances hoping for temporary relief.

Does this sound familiar for you or a loved one?
