Professional treatment of alcohol and drug problems can start
someone on the road to recovery, but a few weeks of treatment should
not be mistaken for long-term recovery.
If you have severe alcohol and other drug problems, you should know
that successful recovery from these problems involves significant
changes over time in:
It is about where you live, how you work and play, who is included
and excluded from your life, and how you cope with the stresses of
daily life. Recovery is more than just not drinking or using drugs; it
is about putting together a new and meaningful life in which alcohol
and drugs no longer have a place. Recovery from addiction is not like
getting over an infection for which we can rest and take medication for
a week or two and then get back to our otherwise unchanged lives. Those
who view treatment for addiction in this way make up the group for whom
treatment does not work. Recovery from addiction is closer to how
someone successfully manages diabetes or heart disease – conditions
that require sustained decisions and actions for life.
