Question Your Addiction Beliefs

Hibiscus flower at drug rehab

Self-Inquiry – A Path from Mistaken Addiction Beliefs To Recovery Once you begin to question your addiction beliefs, the path to recovery has begun. People often experience amazement when they get to treatment or into the rooms of recovery for the first time. Most people think the problem is with their consumption of alcohol, other drugs, or destructive behavior like codependency.  Then they hear in the rooms that the alcohol is only a symptom of the real problem. When you question beliefs, you may be surprised. What starts to reveal offers hope for further growth. WHAT? The Problem Isn’t the Alcohol or other Drugs? Nope. Sure it may seem surprising, but you know what? The substance use is not the problem. There is a well known saying in the rooms of recovery: If you are a problem drinker, and you quit drinking,…

Hiding Addiction

From Hiding Addiction to Freedom of Recovery. Darkness To Light. Serenity Vista, Drug Rehab, Alcoholism, Alcohol Treatment, Drug Addiction Treatment

Tired of hiding addiction in the darkness? Hiding Addiction Are you or  someone you love hiding in the shadows of drug addiction or alcoholism? If so, it’s destructively unhealthy – and unfortunately among alcoholics and addicts – hiding addiction is quite common. Reasons to hide drinking or use of other drugs Addicts engage in hiding behavior for a myriad of reasons. Quite often, they do it as a protective mechanism. Some addicts hide their problem out of pride, too proud or puffed up to admit their weakness. Others do it out of fear of shame, too embarrassed to expose their addiction to friends or family. They may worry that doing so could jeopardize their reputations, relationships, or careers. And yet often, equally as many addicts will hide their drinking or drug use for no other reason than to continue using their drug of…

Father’s Day and Addiction Recovery

Father's Day and Addiction Recovery at Serenity Vista Drug Rehab

Addiction Recovery Father’s Day is a special day of celebration and reverence for most. A time set aside to honor that magical relationship between a father and his cherished children. Addiction Changes Everything Sadly though, many families today live with the pain of alcoholism or substance abuse. For these unfortunate souls, Father’s Day opens old wounds and recalls memories of abuse and sadness. For children living with an alcoholic or drug-addict dad, Father’s Day is an emotional struggle. A struggle wrought with confusion, resent, and pain. People who grow up in the presence of addicted dads endure a lifetime of suffering. The dysfunction can span those formative years as children, through adolescence and up to the socially sensitive teen years. These are important years as they seek to establish their identities. Into adulthood, they themselves often become addicts modeled after their…

Panama, Central America for Alcohol Treatment

Panama, Central America Treatment for Alcoholism

Recover From Alcoholism or Other Addiction in Boquete, Panama Addiction is epidemic. Across North America, Canada and the United States, and in the UK, Europe, and Central and South America, city morgues and emergency rooms cannot keep up with the rising death toll. This is compounded by the devastating health and socio-economic impact of the covid19 panemdic. The result is a collective pain, sorrow, and suffering for the lost, and the loss is a dark oppressive, low-lying cloud. Compounding the tragedy of alcoholism and other drug addiction, including the heroin/opioid/oxy epidemic, is the explosion of patient brokering and unethical rehabs. Patient brokering loosely is when an addiction recovery drug rehab actually pays a third party large amounts of cash for clients. The combination of huge numbers of available addicts, willing insurance payouts, and hungry rehabs, the financial temptation of corruption…

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…

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…
