The Simplest Way To Stop Addiction

how to stop addiction texasDid you know that, according to the CDC, the leading cause of accidental death in the United States is now from drug overdose? And because of that fact, treatment and recovery from addiction are that much more important. It is also important to know that just because addiction is an incurable disease, does not make it untreatable.  Drug addiction can be placed into life-long remission, no matter what drug is being abused. Here are the simplest ways to stop addiction now.

How To Stop Addiction

First things first, if you have anyone or anything in your life that is stopping you from getting clean, then it is time to separate yourself from that block. In addition, if anyone is telling you that you can’t get clean or sober without the substitute of drugs like suboxone or methadone, please stop listening to them right now. After treating over 55,000 patients since 1998, we can tell you with 100% confidence that if you follow simple suggestions, you can and will stay clean and sober life-long without those addictive drugs assisting you.  There may be a need for mental health medications like anti-depressants depending on your specific situation, but addictive, mind-altering “maintenance” drugs are not necessary to achieve long-term recovery.  This is not a theory – it is a fact that could save your life if you take action now.

It is really simple to recover. Not always easy, but simple. There are three main steps to getting clean and sober, and staying that way.

Discovery Phase

This phase takes place in detox and treatment. This is where you will have the opportunity to let go of your old ideas and beliefs, and learn not only about the disease of addiction, but how to recover from the disease. The first two phases are where the disease will fight you the most, but it is simple enough to fight back. You just have to take suggestions and follow through on your healing. No matter what your disease tells you, if you continue to listen to medical professionals and those in recovery who have done this before you, you will be able to do it.

Recovery Phase

Recovery phase takes places once you leave inpatient treatment and attend a sober living environment, an outpatient program, and/or go back home. While you attended an inpatient program, you learned a lot and now it is time to take that knowledge and put it to use.

Stop addiction in three easy steps:

  1. Go to a 12-step fellowship meeting and raise your hand. Explain that you are new and need to get connected. Do this more than once. If you do not like one meeting, go to another. There are tons of meetings so do not let one stop be your only stop.
  2. Get a sponsor and follow their suggestions. Make sure they are working a program of recovery and have completed all 12 steps. Your sponsor will be your adviser through your recovery and the steps, so it is very important you have one if you wish to actually stay in recovery and not relapse.
  3. Work your steps fully and honestly. Be willing and open with your sponsor and apply the steps to your life. Once you have completed the steps, it is time for you to now help others. Be sure that you are working your steps into your life daily and you will be able to stay clean and sober one day at a time.

Maintenance Phase

This is the phase where you have worked your steps and now are helping others and applying your steps to your life on a daily basis. It is promised by the recovery literature of 12-step programs that if you continue to work and apply the steps into your life, you will stay clean and sober life-long. If you are putting your every effort into your recovery, you can and will achieve this, too.

Recovery Is Possible

We think it is important to let you know the truth about how you can stop addiction and get into recovery. We have seen a lot of false information out there on the web and want to make sure that any addict or alcoholic out there who is still sick and suffering knows there is a way out and that recovery is possible.
