Addiction: Persistent compulsive use of a substance or repetition of a behavior known by the user to be harmful. A strong and harmful need to regularly have something (such as a drug) or do something (such as gamble).
Addiction can come in many forms. It can sometimes look like:
Addictive behavior can lessen quality of life. It can steal your health and rob you of wellbeing in body, mind and spirit.
Once the offending behavior or substance has been addressed and the intense initial withdrawal phase is over, you are left with a body and mind seriously challenged by physiological damage that occurred during the addiction period. Nutritional imbalances, (some extreme) as well as chemical and structural imbalances in the brain take time to regain equilibrium.
Studies have shown that for most people this rebalancing phase can last for two years, sometimes longer. And it is not until 5 years of abstinence has passed that one can expect to be fully free of the recurring physiological triggers leading to relapse in to old patterns that it has taken so much effort to overcome. (Emotional triggers can remain much longer in the psyche if not actively addressed.)
During this critical time many people deal with the discomfort by replacing the initial addiction with something deemed less harmful; for example, replacing overuse of a mood elevating drug with excessive spending, or alcohol abuse with overindulgence in sugar laden substances. However, this continues the addiction loop, re-enforcing the toxic emotional and physiological imbalances left by the primary addiction, prolonging - and sometimes prohibiting indefinitely - true recovery and freedom from the urges that leave you vulnerable to relapse.
Relapse: From the Latin – to slip back. To suffer deterioration after a period of improvement.
Warning signs of an impending relapse:
What if there were a program that could lessen the intensity and duration of the urge to relapse during the recovery process on the journey back to a state of wellbeing?
One that includes cutting edge holistic paradigms designed to recalibrate and balance the biochemical and emotional imbalances that remain after the initial withdrawal phase is over. (These imbalances are what cause the cravings to resurface time and time again despite the best of intentions and diligence.)
One that would provide continual professional guidance and coaching on an outpatient basis for the duration of the protocol, and offer support and opportunities for self exploration and empowerment post protocol.
