Alcohol and drug rehab might be more fun than what you imagine!
 When an addict or alcoholic puts the addictive substance into his body, it travels to his brain and boom! He gets the ‘buzz’ which he likes so much. He or she wants to repeat this pleasure-giving activity again and again.
In certain Eastern spiritual teachings, such as Hinduism and Buddhism, detachment is the key to moksha or release and a necessary step toward spiritual progress.
In addiction recovery, people face many challenges in many forms. For men, recovery challenges their identity of themselves - or of what it means to be a ‘man’.
It is a known fact that addiction is highly relapse-prone. In fact, sobriety can be described as nothing but 'preventing a relapse'.
In some ways, the hardest part of establishing and maintaining long-term recovery comes when the initial, intensive part of treatment has been completed.
Can addiction be treated?
It is not all easy living under the same roof as an alcoholic or addict. The addict’s belligerent, abusive behaviour can be very difficult to deal with.
