Treatment is Important
Recently i went to a training about substance abuse. Substance abuse is real and affects the life of many people on a regular basis. One thing they said that stuck with me was that people will turn to drug abuse if they are not connected to something. Another thing that stuck with me was when they discussed different drug abuse rehab programs. They talked about one of the important things about treatment being a focus on something else that can be stronger than drugs. Something that the person can connect to that is bigger than the drugs. A drug rehab center works because individuals are plugged into something like a fitness/health program. There was one individual that hit rock bottom however after getting involved in working out and taking care of himself...drug usage was not as strong. All addictions are real but rehab works for those that can become invested in their health and fitness! Those that can become connected to something stronger! health and fitness is not a bad thing to be connected to!
