Inside The Minds of Addicts and Alcoholics

Posted on January 31, 2012. Filed under: self growth, Treatment of Addictions | Tags: , , , , , , , |

What goes on inside the minds of addicts and alcoholics? You would be surprised at the pain hidden behind many a smiling face. The vicious and unrelenting mental cycles that drive people to substance abuse would be too much for the majority of us and I have come to be in awe of what these folks are dealing with more often than people know.  You can’t resolve it with casual rationale because there is nothing casual or rational about it. No one should have to go through this alone. No one. Ever. The endless cycle of pain, blame, shame, and self abuse would drive anyone to escape via the nearest toxic brain shushing substance! No one could ever punish an addict or alcoholic more than they themselves. No one.

What most of us do not understand is that these folks are all around us and they may not be self applying the labels of alcoholic or addict, yet they are border-line “in trouble.” They may be suffering through grief or loss of a loved one – through death or divorce. Financial issues and increases in costs of living, along with loss of employment,targets new victims daily. Too many folks are self-medicating and overusing and abusing prescriptions while either drinking more often, or combining alcohol and medications.  They may be depressed and not know why yet desperate for some kind of help other than the traditional route which has not or is not working for them right now. Some are in therapy, yet still at a loss. Too often they have not even reached out for therapy being of the “I can handle this” mindset.  Then again, they might be ready and looking quietly or actively, and really want to find the a way to break free of the destructive cycles before it is too late. One too many close calls at home or at work being the catalyst for a sense of desperation creeping into their awareness.

The good news is that there is help available from many caring sources readily available. Intervention done by caring family and friends is described by clients as welcomed and appreciated since they often don’t know how to make the dire urgency of their need known to those who really want to help.

In addition, for those who are ready, we offer private, anonymous, caring, non 12 step, residential, holistic help that is life changing and completely customized to the individual.  Everyone is different and their needs are different. There are no group sessions and the only time there is more than one client at a time is when discussed and agreed upon and the maximum is two people.  All clients are referrals and carefully screened for readiness, commitment, current status, history and sincerity. We become your family for 30-60 days and you become a member of ours. For most people the time needed is 30-45 days and 60 for some.

This program is like an extreme esteem makeover: life edition. We designed it based on the Core Health Program and work we have done with participants and clients over the years. The program is unique and restorative. It is extensive and intense. It is effective.

Pure Core of Health

We are currently offering our program in Costa Rica and will be returning to Sarasota, Florida in early March. Our first available opening is June 2012. Request information and details at Treatment of Addiction. We will email and arrange a phone meeting at an agreeable time for all.

There is a truth about who you are and it is unchanged by what you go through.When you surround yourself with healthy, happy people it is easier to take back your pure core of health. We look forward to facilitating that journey with you.

Pura Vida!
