When people decide that they have had enough of addiction they deserve to be supported in this choice. This is because giving up this maladaptive behaviour will not only benefit them but often their family and even society. There are many fine examples of individuals living in the Millport area that broke away from addiction and managed to become highly respected members of their community. This is why there are many resources available for those who are serious about quitting this type of behaviour. The type of help available includes things like:
- Drug and alcohol counselling
- Recovery fellowships and other self help groups
- Alcohol and drug rehab clinics
- Drug and alcohol detox centres
- Dry houses and half way houses
- Addiction help lines
With all these services to people living in the Millport area the individual should have all the help they need in order to quit their addiction.
In many instances the reason for why people fail to enter recovery is not a lack of resources, but the fact that they are ambivalent towards recovery. This means that while a part of them does want to get better they are not fully convinced that this is the best option for them. The individual wants recovery, but they also hold onto the secret hope that they will one day be able to drink or use drugs safely again. This type of thinking is toxic because it means that the individual is not fully committed to sobriety, and they will usually not be able to supply sufficient effort to stay sober long term. The individual may be able to stay sober for a few months or even a few years but eventually their ambivalence towards recovery will prove to be their undoing. This is why 100% commitment to this new life is so important.
