Hi everyone. I realized how much I missed blogging when I was doing the November thankful post, well I realized it before then but that’s when it intensified.
On black Friday I finally bought a laptop. Which means that I don’t have to wait to get to work to write a post, so I have added blogging into my schedule, so hopefully I will have a post once a week. I’m not promising anything but I will do my best…now if only we can talk Josh into writing a post or two we might have more!
This weekend was a tough one but I really just need to let it go and know that my higher power will work everything out. But other than that everything is pretty good in my life. Work is going good, Kelli is doing great…her Christmas program at school is tomorrow night so I am really looking forward to that.
So I was reading an article today online-“Is drug rehab worth the cost?”
*I know not everyone will agree with me, but please remember that everything that I write is my opinion*
After reading it a couple of times, I have to say that I agree with the author of this article. I do believe that drug rehab is worth the cost IF the person going to rehab actually wants to change and they are not doing it to “get people off their backs.”
I would like to mention that I have never been to a traditional rehab, the only treatment that I have received was treatment in prison, and do I feel it helped me? Very much so, but only after I opened my mind, heart, and ears. But with that being said, if I just went to prison treatment would I still be sober today? Probably not. That was not enough for me. I needed my outpatient treatment and then NA.
But that is me, what worked for me might not work for Joe Blow. I feel that each individual PERSON is different. Now the addiction (rather it is to drugs, pills, alcohol, sex, gambling, etc.) is all the same. Addiction needs to be treated on a daily basis, as addicts we will never be cured, but there is always hope! As the NA basic text says “We suffered from a disease from which there is no known cure. It can, however, be arrested at some point and recovery is then possible.”
What do you guys think?
