Addiction can be a life captivating process. For many of the people I have been around who use they seem so numb to it all. They never know why they use, or if they o they are unwilling to talk about it and they almost seem to think nothing of it. It becomes their normal day to day process and they live sleep and breath their drug of choice. For many they do not know what their next move or step is going to be until unfortunately sometimes it is to late. They are functioning on a completely different scale than those of us who do not use and we can not comprehend what it is that they are going through on a daily basis. We do not understand them an they seem to think they have all the right answers and justify their every move as they feel they are doing nothing wrong. I realized toward the worst part of my sons drug addiction that I myself needed to get help just as much as he did because I was for lack of better terms almost allowing him to use because I had become one of the biggest enablers to his use and I myself could not see it. I justified every time I gave him a place to stay because I did not want him sleeping in the streets, Every time I gave him money because I wanted to make sure that he ate. I was allowing him to continue using because I was always going to make sure that he was OK, but in hindsight I was not helping him and I was just pushing him further into his addiction. As we as a family began to prepare for the dueling fact of getting him treatment I was also faced with the fact of getting some help myself. I remember the day vividly that we approached him in the hopes of gaining his willingness to get help. He was not up for the challenge. He began calling out everyone else's flaws and what they had done wrong to lead him down this road and we let him go on and on and then I finally said what if we as a family are willing to get some help as well? It was at that time that he paused looked at us all and said nothing because we had finally stumped him. We were taking out of the equation the only thing that he could ever begin to use an excuse for his ow problems. He looked at us and kind of laughed as if we were joking and said you're all going to get help? We said yes and at that moment I think all of our lives had changed. He agreed to go. Everything was ready, he was already set up and we got him there and we all a family began this journey together. Once he checked into the center he was seen immediately and was taken to his room an given a tour. He felt very comfortable and then he began the detoxing process. The hardest part as he disclosed. It was a long and hard time in all of our lives at that point, but we knew we were all going to be stronger and better in the long haul and I believe we all gave it everything we had. A few months later we all were together again and talked about all of the things we had found out about ourselves and learned along the way. The main thing was accountability. He said that right off the bat he learned that he could not place his decision making onto others, He knew for a fact that the things he was subjecting himself to do was no one else's fault but his own. He learned life skills and drug relapse prevention and a number of other things. Since graduating from the program he has been able to get a job, buy a car and save up for his own place. He feels so very accomplished and proud of what he has been able to achieve in such a short amount of time that he is excited to see what lies ahead of him in the months and even years to come. He has such a positive outlook on life right now and I as a parent am so proud of everything he been able to achieve in a short amount of time. We as a family learned some valuable tools as well also and that has been a benefit to everyone involved as well.This program has changed our whole families life in a way that we could have only hoped for and it has surpassed every expectation possible. To anyone seeking help for themselves or a loved one I think I speak for everyone in my family that you should really give this place a call.
