addiction treatmentAddiction is not an easy thing to live with, even when it is hidden from the view of loved ones. When someone chooses to hide it from loved ones, they are choosing to do this because they are worried about how it might look to others or that they will be asked to stop using substances before they are ready. A motivating factor in seeking help for addiction has to come from within. It cannot come from doing it because of someone else. There are also other reasons they finally seek help, but mostly they do it because they finally realize they have no other choice if they want to survive. 


Financial Disaster Strikes

The money to fund an addiction can dry up quickly when it is all spent on drugs and going out to meet friends for (too many) drinks. The cost of addiction surpasses most people’s ability to pay for it. Over time, they run out of money and have to rely on funds from loved ones to stay afloat, while secretly stashing money to use for drugs. People who use substances might take out loans they cannot repay, go into serious debt, and more. They can easily end up broke and unable to pay their bills before they finally get well. 



The home is a center point of activity, where loved ones gather and spend their time. To be homeless, having lost a home, or to be unable to finance a home properly can be devastating. Drugs can take away a person’s income, source of income, and place of residence. They ay not lose it forever, but while they are not securely housed, they may struggle to stay afloat and continue to use substances as a means of coping. Home becomes a place they once dreamed of, even though they never meant to lose it to addiction. 



A loved one who had a broken relationship due to addiction can be difficult to reconcile. The addiction takes away everything a person is, who they want to be, and what they hoped to become. By doing what they did with addiction, they made bad choices but also were not able to think clearly to make better ones until they sought help. There is hope for healing in relationships broken by addiction, but it takes time.



Someone who is far from hope is going to have a few decisions to make. Either they continue to feel the situation is hopeless or they turn it around. When they decide to seek treatment for addiction, they are choosing life. They are looking at life with a ray of hope again and the ability to seek the best opportunity they can for themselves. Recovery is not for the faint of heart but it is for anyone who wants to go after it.
