The Change is Coming

Addiction is not the end of the world. With help from Towards Recovery Clinics, you can get your life back by making a positive change. Quitting an addiction to anything – especially an opioid, but with our help and your dedication, you can recover successfully.

If you are considering making the move to end your addiction, you should be aware of the realities that come with making a major life change. Change is difficult for many people, but once you take the first step, the rest of the steps get closer. The steps might not be easy, but each one takes you closer to living a healthy life free of addiction. These are some considerations that you need to make before you take the first step towards recovery:

Do you feel the need to make a change? If your life is falling apart, you might be ready to change. Many people need to reach rock-bottom before they realize that they must change or they will die. Losing a job, a spouse, freedom, health, children, and life savings are good reasons to step into Towards Recovery Clinics and begin the road to recovery.

Can you see that you have a problem? Accepting that you have a problem is often the first step to getting help. If you know you have a problem and that problem is heroin, now is the perfect time to get help. For some people, the first time they recognize that they have a real problem is when they overdose and face death.

Are you ready to make a commitment? Recovery is not an easy journey; it will take time and energy. Making the commitment to living a better life does not involve anyone else – YOU are the only one who has to make the commitment. With a strong commitment, you will make it through the ups and downs that come with recovery.

Do you understand that the road to recovery will be unpleasant? Quitting an opioid addiction is one of the most difficult things that anyone can ever do. At Towards Recovery Clinics, we work hard to help you along the way, but you have to do most of the work. There will be times when you might feel like giving in to your addiction, but you should know that we are available to listen and help you continue down the path to recovery.

Are you willing to change? Whether you have a strong will or not, you will need to have the will to change if you want to actually change. There is no good excuse to return to opioids if you have begun the road to recovery. Your will and our help should keep you working towards success and away from your addiction.

Do you have hope? Before you can even begin to recover from an addiction, you have to have a vision of what your life will be like without addictive substances. Once you have the hope for success, you need to believe that your hope will come true. Your recovery might not be exactly the way you envisioned, but recovery is better than addiction.

Do you have a network of people who support you? While you are the one who will be working hard towards recovery, you do need people who will be your cheerleaders. A strong support system of family and friends can make a big difference in your journey to recovery. You cannot do this alone.

If you are able to answer these questions positively, then you are ready to take that step towards recovery. We encourage you to give us a call: 905-527-2042.
