Sober St Patty's

How to Enjoy St. Patty’s Day Sober

Being sober on St. Patrick’s Day is an anomaly that most people don’t consider to be true. So everyone ends up getting stinking drunk and not remembering what happened the night before. As important as it is to let our hair down, it is equally important to recognize the rich and colorful traditions of a uniquely gifted place like Ireland. We must thank the Irish for giving us more than just a poor drinking habit. We must celebrate their rich traditions before we drink green beer or pinch each other for not wearing green.

Being a popular celebrity is not always about glamour and parties. This is especially true to Hollywood personalities who are courageous enough to admit that they were struggling with addiction in the past. Whether the addiction is related to alcohol or drugs, this mental illness is not to be taken lightly. When it comes to addiction and recovery issues, the patient needs the full support and unconditional love of family and friends.

Self Esteem

How Self-Esteem And Confidence Impact Drug Addiction

By definition, when someone has a low personal evaluation and a less than adequate assumption of their own self-worth, then that person has low self-esteem. How we feel about ourselves and the view of our own self-worth is formed in early childhood and stays with us throughout our life. The initial seeds of our self-esteem are planted by our parents. Our parents have the ability to either provide us with a stable and fortified sense of self-worth, or they can implant a negative and questionable belief in ourselves.

How Mental Disorders Can Lead to Addiction

Struggling with a mental disorder can be a difficult road, one that affects the lives of the suffering individual, as well as surrounding friends and family.

Helping People with Addictions Stay Sober in the New Year

The new year comes with heavy partying and the peer pressure of making new resolutions. But even the best of resolutions made in an inebriated state are not fulfilled. Best resolutions are made when sober. Making a mere resolution to stay sober during the new year is not enough. Trying to stick to a new year’s resolution is often the toughest thing to do, but addictions are a different ball game altogether.

How Does Outpatient Rehab Work?

When you or a loved one struggle with an addiction, seeking help is the second step to recovery. The first step is identifying and realizing that there is a problem, and figuring out why that addiction manifested in the first place. Rehab helps you to figure out the reasons as to why and how the addiction manifested and helps you and your loved ones understand where it came from. This then aids and arms the person with the addiction, to change their thought process to being able to cope rather than turn to their addiction. Individualized coping skills are taught for a permanent, effective long term sobriety.

What are the odds of beating addiction without rehab?

Recovery from addiction to substances or habits can seem like a long road, but it is not impossible. What makes it possible is the support from family and friends and the guidance from a team of professionals. Addiction can best be overcome with rehab programs that help the addict acknowledge the existence of a problem and then overcome it with proper medication, treatment and extensive counselling. Without rehab, overcoming serious and chronic addiction becomes extremely difficult as there is no method to the recovery and the addict can give up at any point in time.
