Most people get into recovery after walking a long, hard, painful road under the cloak of darkness. For many, inpatient rehab is like the light at the end of the tunnel – although it may not feel like it at first.
Addiction robs a person of their dignity, self-respect, piece of mind, and (perhaps most profoundly) their spiritual connection to the universe. In no uncertain terms, addiction – whether it’s a substance abuse problem, a gambling addiction or an addiction to sex – is a very costly endeavor.
Many people lose everything before they make the decision to get into recovery. Others are able to stop themselves before they experience complete mental, physical, emotional, and financial bankruptcy. In either case, an addicted person eventually has to hit rock bottom before they are ready to make the brave decision to commit to recovery and give up their old way of life.
How do you know when you’ve hit rock bottom? It’s easy – you stop digging.
If you are currently struggling with an addiction of any kind, you can stop the madness any time you choose to. It may not feel that way, but you can make the conscious choice that you are going to stop digging and get your life back. You can experience rock bottom today – right here and now – so you don’t have to continue to wander aimlessly in the darkness you are currently experiencing. It’s up to you.
Of course, if you make that decision, you are going to need some help. While you and only you can make the choice to get into recovery, you cannot walk the path alone. You need addiction treatment to teach you the skills you need to successfully navigate a life in recovery. You also need to go within and figure out what caused you to develop your addiction in the first place.
If you believe you are at rock bottom and you are ready to stop digging, we can help. The expert team of addiction specialists at DARA Thailand are on standby to assess your current situation and recommend a treatment plan. We equip our clients with all the tools needed to put a stop to the addictive cycle and begin a life in recovery. All you have to do to start your new life is pick up the phone and call us.
We recognize that coming to terms with an addiction is a very uncomfortable experience accompanied by regret, loneliness, shame, guilt, confusion, and fear. But, the good news is – when you hit rock bottom there is nowhere to go but up. Though it may not feel like it, hitting bottom is a good thing because it offers hope for a new future. It motivates you to stop your current course of self-destruction action and take a different path.
Remember, nothing changes if nothing changes. If you continue to act out in your addiction, you will continue to experience pain, misery, isolation, broken relationships, and financial difficulties. If you commit to walking the road of recovery, your whole life can change for the better.
