Addiction and Self Recovery Midvale UT

I’m not speaking of any particular addiction, as we all have one or two in our lives. However, for sake of discussion, the primary addictions that people fall to when they find that their lives are faltering are alcohol and drugs. Of course, these usually come into play once their addictions to depression and negative situations overtake their lives and they feel as though they have no where left to turn.

Addiction and Self Recovery

Lots of clients come to me who, while they wanted to come up in life, was actually stuck in a self-destructive addiction. Of course, I cannot directly deal with them about their addictions, as they had to open up to me that it was part of the issue that was keeping them in the same rut in which they found themselves day-after-day. As we worked together to make plans and open doors, the addiction was left open for them to examine and realize that they needed to overcome the situation, and cut loose that anchor to move forward to a fulfilling life.
 
I’m not speaking of any particular addiction, as we all have one or two in our lives.
