Drug and Alcohol Rehab, The Place to be….If you need to be….

In life we are meant to discover, in fact the reason for Rehab is not what most folks think. It is “Discovery”! Any reasonably minded individual would gather all of the facts before making any major life altering decision. Therefore, how can an individual make a prudent choice of whether they want recovery/life or what they currently live without first discovering what recovery/life is first? This is not a ticket to continue on a path of self-destruction. It is quite the opposite it is an invitation to explore what recovery can truly be.

Often the individual that is considering rehab sees it as a last resort. They have succumbed to family, friends or an employer/business partner’s pressure to get help. Personally they can’t fathom living a life of recovery. Why? Because they have no idea what to expect with a life free of “partying”. It is like losing their best friend. They believe there is nothing that life has to offer to replace the temporary joy they receive from using.

At 16 years of age I remember my mother attempting to get me to take “The Pledge” an Irish method of getting someone to stop drinking alcohol. I remember looking my mother in the eye and saying “Are you kidding me? What would life be without drinking?” If you are in recovery or know of someone that needs help you have probably heard some variation of this statement a thousand times or more! It is all we know and comprehend. It is as necessary to us as oxygen is to others. It is how we think.

Therefore, making a short-term commitment to gather all of the facts together to make a prudent decision is a much more rational approach. It is simply committing 90 days out of your life span that is probably a good 80 to 90 years. Ninety days out of ninety years? Not much to ask.

Come take the risk and explore what your real options are. Find out what it really means to enjoy life. On September 12, 2008 my good friend Jack completed 48 years free of any mind-altering substances. Have lunch with Jack or simply meet him once and you will know what it means to enjoy life and not endure it. As a matter of fact, that is Jack’s mantra “Life is meant to be enjoyed and not endured”.

Life is good. Give it the chance that you truly deserve.
