Relief vs Freedom: Freeing yourself from addiction

In order to begin experiencing permanent sobriety, you must first learn how to find freedom within yourself. However, each person is different, and separating yourself from your addiction is not always easy.

Finding a recovery program that works for you…

According to an article published in Scientific American,

A prevailing view of substance abuse, supported by both the National Institute on Drug Abuse and Alcoholics Anonymous, is the disease model of addiction. The model attributes addiction largely to changes in brain structure and function. Because these changes make it much harder for the addict to control substance use, health experts recommend professional treatment and complete abstinence.

At BRC Recovery, our staff members have been through the recovery journey and know what it is to experience a ‘temporary reprieve’ from addiction versus total freedom from a lifetime of substance abuse. That said, each person’s journey is as different as the backgrounds that led up to this point. Therefore, BRC offers gender-specific drug and alcohol rehab programs to residents.

By providing a gender-specific environment, residents are able to focus more clearly on their sobriety as well as form bonds with each other in order to heal more quickly. Men and women are structured differently with regards to both their physical attributes as well as emotional needs; and our separate programs provide daily activities that may appeal to one gender but not the other.

Freeing yourself from drug and alcohol addiction

The road to permanent sobriety and freedom from addiction is a long one, but the journey is worth it. You may have previously sought freedom from your addiction, and after a brief period of “relief”, suddenly you found yourself right back to where you started. Throughout the drug and alcohol rehab process (especially if you have gone through rehab before), you are bound to experience moments of hopelessness. However, not all is lost. There IS help to get you back on the right path.

Sometimes, it takes courage to ask for the help that you need. Other times, it takes a caring friend or family member to approach you about your addiction and offer assistance. Regardless of how you wound up with your addiction, it is difficult to overcome it without the help and support of others who have your best interests in mind.

At BRC Recovery, we take a gender-specific, individualized approach to helping residents construct an effective combination of techniques (such as the 12 Steps) in order to help them realize their dream of permanent sobriety.

It IS possible.

You CAN recover.
