No one should be expected to treat addiction on their own. There are lots of resources that can help:
- Visit a Narcotics Anonymous meeting in your area.
- Recognizing that you have a problem is the first step on the road to recovery, one that takes tremendous courage and strength.
- Facing your addiction without minimizing the problem or making excuses can feel frightening and overwhelming, but recovery is within reach.
- If you’re ready to make a change and willing to seek help, you can overcome your addiction and build a satisfying, drug-free life for yourself.
Support is essential to addiction recovery
Don’t try to go it alone; it’s all too easy to get discouraged and rationalize “just one more” hit or pill. Whether you choose to go to rehab, rely on self-help programs, get therapy, or take a self-directed treatment approach, support is essential. Recovering from drug addiction is much easier when you have people you can lean on for encouragement, comfort, and guidance.
