Why Seek Treatment
Although the pain and stress that addiction causes are often clear to friends and family, it is not always so clear to the affected individual. Friends and family are usually the first to notice the stress at home, stress at work and problems with personal relationships. However addiction can manifest itself many other ways as well. Addicts use drugs and alcohol in various and less evident ways as a form of release from stress or escape from pain.
If you have tried unsuccessfully to quit on your own or conventional addiction therapy has failed, seeking treatment at a Christian rehab like Celebrate A New Life, may be the answer. Our California-based treatment center has successfully helped clients recover and lead an addiction-free life by finding strength and peace in the midst of confusion, guilt, shame, isolation and devastation.
For many, what started out as casual, social drinking or drug use has escalated to a compulsive disease that has a stranglehold on every aspect of their lives. Here are some indications that you or a loved one may be in the grips of addiction:
- Needing to use more to achieve the same effect or “high”
- Allowing the drug to have increasingly negative effects on your life such as depleting your health, success, social life and self-esteem
- Becoming increasingly isolated from loved ones, from God and from your true self
- Engaging in behaviors that you promised yourself or God you would never engage in
- Becoming increasingly filled with guilt, shame, apathy and sadness
- Trying to stop on your own several times, promising that tomorrow will be “day one” but that day never comes
Experiencing just one of these can indicate an addiction and if you are wondering if you are an addict or have found this site, you or a loved one is likely faced with addiction – those not impacted by addiction don’t think about their substance use because it isn’t a problem and they wouldn’t be reading this site.
The darkness of addiction to drugs or alcohol permeates all aspects of life from personal productivity, to self-care, relationships and health. Unfortunately this continues to manifest and get worse. If the addict continues to do the same things over and over they will undoubtedly get the same increasingly negative results. It is with this in mind that you want to consider the alternative. The alternative is allowing Celebrate A New Life to guide you through the foundation of Christianity and recovery.
If you or someone you love is ready to walk away from the destructive world of alcohol and drug abuse, Celebrate A New Life’s California residential Christian rehab program has helped countless people from around the country conquer substance abuse—and reclaim their lives.
If today is the day you’ve chosen to break the chains of addiction, you have come to the right place. We can give you help today—and a reason to celebrate a tomorrow.
