Unmanageability in Addiction

If you are an addict or alcoholic and no matter how hard you try, there is some, if not every aspect of your life that is not being well-managed, you are just like millions of us with the disease of addiction. Even if you are a high-functioning addict or alcoholic, and everything looks good on the outside, your inner world is an absolute mess. There is a solution, and it’s simple, but it’s not always easy.

It’s safe to say that if addiction was manageable, we wouldn’t need to get clean and sober. Addiction and manageable don’t even belong in the same sentence. It’s no secret that most of us have tried to control our drinking and using at times, but we were never truly successful until we stopped completely. When we can’t control our drinking and using, we start losing the ability to manage other things as well. Our finances, career, and relationships begin to suffer and we might even find ourselves in trouble with the law.

The stress of chaos pushes us to drink and use more, and the vicious cycle continues. It isn’t until we recognize and acknowledge how much trouble we are in, that we concede to the idea that we need help. The amount of disorder in an alcoholic or addict’s life is insurmountable to handle alone. So many of us have experienced this, and so many of us are willing to help. Detox and treatment are the first steps to begin untangling the mess of addiction, and all it takes is a willingness to get well.

If you are struggling right now, and are indecisive about going to treatment, take a moment to think about how your life will continue on if you don’t go. If it’s unmanageable now, it will only get worse. If you think you can’t put it all on pause for what amounts to a sliver of time in the grand scheme of things, trust us, you can. No one wants to be around someone who is addicted to drugs or alcohol, and those around you will be grateful you decided to get your life together. Give us a call, we can help you, and your recovery can begin today.
