Self-discovery in Addiction Treatment

March 25, 2008

 

Self-discovery should be a major component of any addiction treatment program. This is why services such as individual counseling and group therapy sessions or support groups are usually offered. Spirituality is another component of addiction treatment that many people find helpful.

The first step in self-examination on the path to addiction recovery is admitting that there is a problem. Due to the nature of drug addiction and alcoholism, addicts more often than not believe they are in control of their behavior. They think that they can quit any time they want to. However, this is not the case. Counseling and encouragement from family, friends, and professionals can help and addict to realize the scope of their drug or alcohol addiction. An intervention done with a trained specialist is often helpful in this regard.

Self-discovery during addiction treatment means many different things. The individual must figure out why they began using drugs and alcohol in the first place to avoid making the same mistakes again. They need to realize the positive aspects of themselves in order to build self-esteem. At the same, admitting to mistakes and flaws is just as important. People with alcoholism or drug addiction must learn to accept the good and bad about themselves in order to move forward.

The journey of self-discovery in addiction recovery can be a difficult process and a roller coaster of emotions. It brings up negative things that the addict has been avoiding by using drugs and alcohol, but doing this is essential to working through the problem. Addictions are often a way of hiding from the truth about oneself. Numbing pain with drugs and alcohol is in many ways easier than recovery. However, addiction treatment is far more worthwhile in the end. Rehab facilities use a variety of methods to aid in self-discovery.
