Recovery with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Drug Rehab Courses
To understand how important this component of the Freedom Treatment Center program is, we must look at the beginnings of the addiction, before the abuse even set in. Generally speaking, in early development, most people are not in control of their moods, emotions or mental states. A “good day” is relatively dependent upon outside events, people and circumstances. In other words, if everyone treats me kindly, work or school goes well, and the sun is shining brightly…then I am happy. We are a slave reacting to the world and its whims.
But, the world is not always so kind. Uncomfortable life events occur and we are affected negatively. Sometimes, hoping that the next day is a better one is the only tool that we have. In other cases we lash out, hoping to change the uncomfortable events around us into something more bearable. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day.
But, in the case of the substance abuser, we found an escape route…drugs and alcohol. Instead of having to change the world around us or hoping for a happy day, we found that we could instantly change our mood no matter how unbearable the surroundings. Bills piling up, another job lost, a wife about to leave? No problem. Simply ingest a substance and life has become more bearable. Unfortunately, though, there is a cost. This is not facing life, advancing or even survival.
A life lived this way becomes very small. The circle of friends becomes smaller, financial troubles increase. In the best of cases, we are left sitting in a darkened room, bottle by our side…few that care about us are left. In the worst of cases, no one is left to notice our absence and we wander the streets homeless looking for just one more sip, hit or pill to make it all go away. But, again maybe tomorrow will be a better day.
After recovery, we have become less a slave to our emotions and the world around us. But if we are to survive, succeed and remain clean and sober we must have additional tools. And these tools require action.
By analyzing our lives we can find that it is broken up into different components for us to focus improvement on. Whether it is ourselves, our health, our family, jobs, material success, or spiritual growth, these areas can be focused on and with the effective tools, improved upon.
“Changing Conditions in Life” gives our students the ability to recognize what condition any area of their life is in. And, once we recognize that condition, there are steps we can take to be able to climb up to a higher condition. It is also important here that we understand how every area of our life is interconnected and we must have balance. Someone who focuses only on his physical health but neglects his family is probably doomed to fall short of his true potential as a human being. Neglecting the spiritual (whatever that belief may be for the individual) and only focusing on material pursuits can also limit us.
After exiting treatment, instead of trying to simply stay clean and sober while at the same time “waiting for the world to throw you a good luck charm” isn’t recovery. Recovery is really about facing uncomfortable feelings and life situations and walking through them without distraction or avoiding. Recovery is about productively and actively pursuing improvement in all areas of our lives. Instead of being a slave, we have a chance to become free. Free to create our own lives and our own destinies.
