When Addicts Kill Families

Posted Posted in Blog

Family Suffering Over the past few decades, experts have increasingly recognized that addiction is a primary, progressive and chronic disease that, if unchecked, can be fatal.  This is when When Addicts Kill Families. Many have failed, though, to realise that those closest to the addict, primarily the family, generally suffer psychological damage and often become […]

We admitted we were powerless over the effects of alcoholism or other family dysfunction, that our lives had become unmanageable. Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understand God. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character. Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings. Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others. Continued to take personal inventory and, when we were wrong, promptly admitted it. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as we understand God, praying only for knowledge of God’s will for us and the power to carry that out. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others who still suffer, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

Self-sabotage in addiction treatment

Posted Posted in Blog

Self-sabotage in addiction treatment is like a grenade that suddenly and unexpectedly explodes — pushing us away from our deepest wants and desires. However, there are no excuses, because we are the ones who consciously control the movement of the pin. It’s, therefore, up to us to make the decision that we will no longer […]
