Drug Treatment during the Holidays

The holiday season is a very stressful time for some people. When we are talking about people that suffer from alcoholism and drug addiction the holidays can produce very bad feelings that accelerate use. As a drug rehab in Pennsylvania, we see an increase of admissions to our facilities during and after Christmas and New Years. Why is this? Many times the reason is because the addict may be ready to give up and surrender to their disease. They see how hurt their families are, how irresponsible their behavior has been, and their lives spiraling out of control.

For families that have suffered from a loved ones addiction, although it can be difficult, when someone gives up that is the first step in recovery. It can be tough to be dealing with this when it should be a happy time of year. The good news is that if the addict/alcoholic stays surrendered, the holidays that come in the future can be drastically different.

Our Treatment Centers are located in North East Pennsylvania can assist people from New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. If you or someone you know is in need of a new york city drug rehab, please call us first. We can help when no one else can.

Simplicity is Key

When we were using our lives seemed so complicated and mostly because we complicated everything. We complicated our lives and the lives of those around us. We can only see it now that we are sober how complicated we made things when they didn't have to be. Now, with the gift of sobriety we can see how keeping life simple truly benefits us and those we love.

The simplicity of life is just so beautiful and we could not see this while we were using. We are sober and now see clearly that the simplicity of life is a blessing. We must hang out to this simplicity because it will help us on our road of recovery.
