Addiction is scary. Drug addiction is scarier. Obsessing towards drugs that we know would harm us and is bad for us but does not have enough strength to stop. It is a complicated situation to be in and the cure to this is a long-term solution and a strong will and determination. Drug addiction is a brain complication though at first we do this voluntarily, the brain has the power to take that democracy and force you to be under a dictatorship. When drugs control you, you cannot easily take over. You would feel numb, you would not have a care in the world, you would sooner or later hurt the people you love, and later on be the family’s let down.
It pains your family knowing that the person they love is also in pain. We tend to feel for them, sympathy is part of our human nature. No matter how much painful or ho much it breaks us, we would do anything to save that loved one who has lost their way. We want to be the solution to their problem, the cure to their sickness. But no matter how much or how big our love will never be big enough to overcome their problem if we do it alone.
Luckily we are not alone. We are not the only one with the same principle, the same care, the same belief. They believe that any person should not be under the spell and dependency of drugs. That being addicted to this is curable and does not define them as a person. They believe that drug addiction is not because of bad parenting and lack of education, that drug addiction is only a probable effect of an event we have not been prepared for. They believe too that though most of the time alcohol is the key, it should not be a reason enough to lead unto this situation. They are the SOBA Recovery Arizona. This rehabilitation center is a specific patient-oriented facility. This means that every patient has their own needs and is provided for them.
Their facilities are designed to be a multi-structured platform that will help the patient overcome their past life and renew themselves. They believe that full commitment is the first step, as long as the patient is not fully committed the treatment process would be incapable of undermining the influence of drugs. The institute also believes that the patient though still under medication should interact with others to rebuild self-confidence and trust. They do not believe that curing a patient is enough, they believe that preparing him or her for the outside world is the real goal and aim for each patient.
There are also a lot of group activities aside from individual assessment. Patients would also be encouraged to go outside and see the world from a new perspective. The company also wants to ensure that when patient leaves the institution he or she will be fully aware of what drug and alcohol addiction is, its overall effect to one’s health, society and personal or internal relationship among others. How drugs can turn a person into a mindless beast and never be that type of person again.
