Chaos addicts are more common than you can imagine. They are always at least fifteen minutes behind and that’s why they arrive late, running and panting. They apologize and blame the traffic.
Addiction recovery almost always involves dealing with anger. Anger may be directed at oneself, at specific people, at less-specific entities (like law enforcement), or at society as a whole. Without learning to process anger in a constructive manner, a person with an addiction cannot move forward toward recovery.
Anger along with an addiction to a substance, such as alcohol, cocaine or heroin, can be a nightmarish combination.
When people with strong religious faith struggle with addiction, they face not only the struggles society places on them but also issues related to how their addiction issues affect their faith. For these individuals, traditional addiction recovery programs that do not address this spiritual component may not be as effective as a spiritual recovery center. With a combination of traditional drug rehab and a spiritual approach to addiction recovery, a faith-based recovery center can help those struggling with addiction find relief while supporting and strengthening their faith. For many, this combination leads to a better chance of full recovery.
Addiction hurts families and for as many as 60 percent of families it also brings violence. When an addict turns against his family with physical violence and verbal accusations, it brings suffering that lasts generations. Plus, violence indicates an addict suffers from a more severe addiction and mental health problems that need immediate treatment to ensure everyone’s safety.
