ABTRS knows what you are thinking right now: how does positive thinking and healthy coping mechanisms keep me from abusing drugs or alcohol? Depending on the depth of your addiction you may have experienced the following:
- Isolating yourself from friends and family because you did not want to burden them with your drug abuse.
- Constantly telling yourself you can’t go to work or do something until you have abused drugs.
- Mentally focusing on all the negative aspects of your life until consumed with depression and need a fix to “fix” you.
- Or even suicidal thoughts resulting in thinking the world is better with you gone.
I know it is hard to see it now, but your friends and family wish the best for you and they know your best is not stuck in the downward spiral of addiction. Training your mind in treatment to think positively about your life and yourself will motivate you to be more than just a drug abuser.
Many ABTRS graduates go back to school to receive their GED and learn to be nurses, counselors, or pursue their skills to find a better job that encourages growth. Sometimes it takes believing in yourself and your path in recovery that fills your life with meaning. ABTRS’s drug and alcohol rehab can help you see the good inside of you, discover your interests and guide you in a direction that has you waking with a smile.
We know how great this sounds and with ABTRS’s approach to substance abuse treatment you can actually achieve this level of contentment in your life. Our type of treatment addresses the person and not just the addiction. ABTRS is a firm believer of providing comprehensive care that is patient focused, shines light on the whole problem and not a facet of the problem.
Many people use drugs and alcohol to self-medicate and avoid the problems that they are facing in life. Educating our patients about their illness gives them power over their cravings and the confidence to rise above them. CBT is one of the many tools used in providing comprehensive care.
