At our addiction rehabilitation centre, we regularly meet families of our patients who struggle with staying behind the invisible line that separates supporting a loved one from enabling territory.
The truth is, no one likes to see their loved ones in any pain or distress, and our need to alleviate their discomfort is only natural.
For those out there who have let their New Year’s resolutions slip, or who are trying to maintain or start a life free from drug and alcohol abuse, here are a few more “realistic” resolutions that the recovering addict should consider.
This article is an attempt to increase the awareness about the negatives and dangers of at-home drug and alcohol detoxing.

Granted, while there may be some people capable of successfully recovering without professional help, attempting an at-home detox can be dangerous and in a few cases life-threatening.
Addiction is a primary disease with the associated factorial relationships: genetic, bio-physiological and environmental.

There is no one way to avoid relapsing, however there are guidelines that should be followed in order to maintain a successful recovery.
For many years addiction was seen as an addict’s weakness or personal choice.
Sadly, there are still rehabilitation centres, some local, that refuse to acknowledge the years of careful research verifying that addiction is a chronic disease.

Step Away Drug Addiction and Alcohol Abuse Treatment Centre is open to any persons wanting to live free from substance dependency.
Our approach to treating drug addiction and alcohol abuse is tolerant of any religion, race, gender and sexuality.
