Different Problems, Same Reaction

same reaction

Whether you are an alcoholic, a drug addict, or both, you share the same disease of addiction with millions of us in and out of recovery. We have all walked different paths to land where we are now, and we all have experienced different problems. Many of them are similar, but what’s striking, is that we all have the same reaction when confronted with a problem: we reach for the drink or the drug as a solution. This may have worked for a little while, but at some point, it started making our problems worse.

For those of us who grew tired of the chaos and the problems our drinking and drugging caused, we skidded into recovery in much of the same way. We were spiritually bankrupt, our bodies and minds were beat up, and honestly, we had nowhere else to go. Our drinking or drugging may have started young, possibly as a solution to peer pressure or bullying. It could have started as a solution to stress at work, or even the pressure of providing for our families. No matter what the reasoning was behind our solution, we reacted to our problems the same way: with drugs and alcohol.

If you can relate, you are in the right place. We know how comfortable it is to just reach for the bottle, or our drug of choice to push that problem away, just for now at least. In fact, when we do this, we don’t even care. No matter what’s going on around us, so long as we have our solution handy, we could care less what the problem is. It is when our solution becomes the problem, that we get in trouble. When our solution turns on us, we have no clue what to do or where to go. This is where The Lakehouse Recovery Center comes into play. When your solution isn’t working anymore, give us a call. We have a new solution, and it will change your life.
