Cat drug addiction, or addiction in general, doesn’t often begin as addiction.
For a lot of us, it began with friends at parties, through experimentation or peer pressure.
At first, it’s fun and exciting; but then taking drugs becomes more regular, the amount of drugs increases a little more each time and before you know it, you are taking drugs every weekend and you’ve developed a drug habit.
While making the decision to stop your substance abuse is the biggest milestone to recovery, it’s not the only choice you will have to make on your path to good health and better life.
Choosing a good rehab centre in South Africa may appear easier than it is.
It’s not as simple as you’re an addict, here is a rehab, there is your recovery.
There are a few more aspects that need to be considered if you want to achieve your end goal, a life of sobriety.
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.
As a rehab in South Africa we often hear from patients of their attempts to rehabilitate themselves without using professional addiction rehabilitation treatments and programmes.
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.
Our holistic approach to addiction enables us to address each influencing factor, helping you seek relief and recovery by improving the health of your mind, body and spirit.
This year our vision is routed in love, justice and trust, a respect for the dignity of life and a spirit of building hope together.
At Step Away Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre, we are partners with people, especially the vulnerable who are stranded in the grips of alcoholism and drug addiction.
We are happy to announce that we have moved to new premises.
Our drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre can now be found at no.24 Old Seaview Road, Chelsea, Port Elizabeth.
Why can’t you just stop? Why can’t I just stop?
Both are questions exhausted by family members and yourself every day.
There is no one way to avoid relapsing, however there are guidelines that should be followed in order to maintain a successful recovery.
