You have probably heard this before. Addiction does not discriminate. It does not care what age you are, what gender, what socioeconomic background you have, what is your race, who are your parents, what is your background, and it certainly does not care about what part of the country or the world you live in. You do not need to come from a certain demographic for addiction of any kind to dig its claws into you, tearing apart your self-worth, relationships, stability, sanity and ultimately your entire life. Those on the other side of the addiction, who have never had the extreme displeasure of experiencing it for themselves will never understand, they can imagine and make assumptions about what it’s like to live under the enormous thumb of addiction, but because they have not lived those experiences first hand it’s hard for them to comprehend. However, this does not mean that they are incapable of seeing and feeling the pain that has become so debilitating and impossible to escape for you. They want to do something about it and so do we. We may not know you yet, but we love you already. If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction and you think they need urgent help, tell them that addiction treatment in Broward County is readily available at Broward Recovery.
Maybe people have come up to you and have said that you have chosen to live this way and that you are now paying for the consequences of your poor decisions. That you are reaping what you’ve sewed. But let us be clear about one thing, no one deserves to live under the control and incessant pressure of addiction. An important thing to keep in mind when making assumptions about people who are struggling with addictions is that there is usually a root of their addiction. There’s typically a deeper cause that maybe you have not had the time or interest to ask the person about. If you want to be part of that person’s support system, then you must be able to differentiate between these crucial things so we are not making inadequate judgments. If a friend or family member of yours is dealing with addiction, and they are ready to receive the help they need and deserve, there are people out there waiting to help them and at Broward Recovery, we happen to be those people. They are just as ready and wanting to take care of you as you are ready and wanting to get help!
You have probably heard this before too. There is no shame in asking and getting help. Asking for what you deserve is a sign of courage. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. If you have gotten to this point in your life and you have seen the turmoil havoc has brought to your life, but no longer want to be a part of it, call the team at Broward Recovery today at (561)414-6189 and allow our medical care professionals to take care of you.
