Relapse Again. Now What?

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? Because regardless if you have been sober one month or 20 years, relapse again is a possibility every addict or alcoholic faces. Does a relapse mean that it was all for nothing, that you’re a failure? Absolutely not! But what’s next? The Emotional Turmoil A relapse is possibly the most devastating blow to a person’s recovery. 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…

The Work of Byron Katie in Drug Rehab

Using The Work of Byron Katie in Residential Treatment for Alcoholism The Early Days of 12 Step Recovery Recovery from addiction began with one alcoholic, Bill W., talking to another alcoholic, Dr. Bob, May 13, 1935, in Akron, Ohio. We continue sharing experience, strength and hope with each other, one day at a time, and hopefully, we continue growing and changing. The 12 Step Literature of Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Overeaters Anonymous, Al-Anon, etc., are treasure troves of this recovery design for living.

The Myth of Willpower in Alcoholism

Myth of willpower

Willpower to Recover from Alcoholism is a Myth It makes sense that some people think alcoholics just need willpower to recover from alcoholism. It seems that will-power can be used to lose weight, get good grades or a new job – but with the disease of alcoholism self-will just doesn’t work. What We Hear About Willpower To Recover From Others: If he really wanted to quit, he would.   She has always been selfish and weak-willed. You’d think she stay sober for her kids.   Why does he always overdo it when we are drinking? He has no will-power to stop when he should. These are common sentiments we hear from people who do not understand the disease of addiction. We don’t blame people for thinking like that, it is not our job to educate the whole world about alcoholism.…
