drug rehabilitation and substance abuse treatment at support systems

rehabilitation alcohol drug centers

we who are in recovery came because we finally gave up trying to control our drinking/using. we finally realized that which had been so apparent to all those around us - our family members, loved ones, friends... that in truth, our drinking/using was controlling us. we hated to admit that we could not drink or use safely without suffering negative consequences...

is recovery for you?

do i really have a problem?

each person’s “bottom” is different. some people recognize they are in trouble early. when they don’t feel in control of their drinking anymore. when they lose a promotion or mess up a deal. when the bedroom becomes a nightly battleground. when they’re booked for driving while intoxicated. or when their kids start having problems in school because nobody’s paying attention to them at home.

others wait until they lose their jobs or their families, until they hurt someone in a traffic accident, until a child runs away from home, or until liver disease lands them in the hospital. still others stubbornly hold out for a bottom that lands them in jail or on the street: penniless, homeless, jobless, friendless. some, of course, like the woman who ignores the lump in her breast or the smoker who scoffs at the signs of lung cancer, never stop denying until they are undeniably dead.

what you need to ask yourself is, “how far down do i want to go before i make an effort to come back up?” “how much am i willing to risk the possibility that i’ll never make it back up?”

answer yes or no to the following questions.

1 - have you ever decided to stop drinking/using for a week or so, but only lasted for a couple of days?
most of us made all kinds of promises to ourselves and to our families. we could not keep them. then we came to recovery which said: "just try not to drink or use today." (if you do not drink or use today, you cannot get drunk or high today.)
yes no

2 - do you wish people would mind their own business about your drinking/using-- stop telling you what to do?
in recovery we do not tell anyone to do anything. we just talk about our own drinking/using, the trouble we got into, and how we stopped. we will be glad to help you too.
yes no

3 - have you ever switched from one kind of drink or drug to another in the hope that this would keep you from getting drunk/high?
we tried all kinds of ways. we made our drinks weak, or just drank beer, or we did not drink cocktails, or only drank on weekends. you name it, we tried it. but if we drank anything with alcohol in it, we eventually got drunk. if we used any drug, we got eventually high .
yes no

4 - have you had to have a drink upon awakening during the past year?
do you need a drink or drug to get started, or to stop shaking? this is a pretty sure sign that you are not drinking/using "socially."
yes no

5 - do you envy people who can drink or use without getting into trouble?
at one time or another, most of us have wondered why we were not like most people who truly can take it or leave it.
yes no

6 - have you had problems connected with drinking/using during the past year?
be honest! doctors say that if you have a problem with alcohol and/or drugs (duis, accidents, etc)and keep on drinking/using, it will get worse -- never better. eventually, you will die, or end up in an institution for the rest of your life. the only hope is to stop drinking and using.
yes no

7 - has your drinking/using caused trouble at home?
before we came into recovery, most of us said that it was the people or problems at home that made us drink or use. we could not see that our drinking/using just made everything worse. it never solved problems anywhere, anytime.
yes no

8 - do you ever try to get "extra" drinks/drugs at a party because you do not get enough?
most of us used to have a "few" before we started out if we thought it was going to be that kind of party. and if drinks were not served fast enough, we would go some place else to get more.
yes no

9 - do you tell yourself you can stop drinking/using any time you want to, even though you keep getting drunk/high when you don't mean to?
many of us kidded ourselves into thinking that we chose drinking and/or using because we wanted to. after we came into recovery, we found out that once we started to drink/use, we couldn't stop.
yes no

10 - have you missed days of work or school because of drinking/using?
many of us admit now that we "called in sick" lots of times when the truth was that we were hung-over, drunk or high.
yes no

11 - do you have "blackouts"?
a "blackout" is when we have been drinking or using for hours or days which we cannot remember. when we came to recovery, we found out that this is a pretty sure sign of addictive using and/or alcoholic drinking.
yes no

12 - have you ever felt that your life would be better if you did not drink or use?
many of us started to drink or use because mind-altering substances made life seem better, at least for a while. by the time we got into recovery we felt trapped. we were drinking and/or using to live and living to drink or use. we were sick and tired of being sick and tired.
yes no

what's your score?

did you answer yes four or more times? if so, you are probably in trouble with alcohol and/or drugs. why do we say this? because thousands of people in recovery have said so for many years. they found out the truth about themselves — the hard way.

but again, only you can decide whether you think recovery is for you. try to keep an open mind on the subject. if the answer is yes, we will be glad to show you how we stopped drinking ourselves. call.

recovery does not promise to solve your life's problems. but we can show you how we are learning to live without mind-altering substances "one day at a time." we stay away from that first drink, first pill, first drug. if there is no first one, there cannot be a tenth one. and when we got rid of alcohol and other drugs, we found that life became much more manageable.
