Where Can I Turn For Help?

There are four stages of addiction leading to substance abuse: Experimentation, recreational use, excessive use and dependence. Most abusers begin using substances recreationally then escalate use until they can’t stop.

Substance abuse can occur after severe injury, treatment with narcotic painkillers. Studies have shown that psychological need for the painkillers can persist long after the physical injury has begun to heal.

The path to addiction recovery can be long and difficult, but it is not impossible. These are the stages of an addiction we will go through more thoroughly in therapy.

The pre-contemplation stage is characterized by denial. The abuser may not think they have any problem and believe they’re comfortable with their habit. They believe they can handle their drug or alcohol use, and don’t believe they have a problem.

In the contemplation stage, conflicting emotions begin to play a role. Consequences of the person’s drug use make an appearance. Problems may arise with friends, family or co-workers. Personal awareness of the problem begins to take place. Change in their life is desired, but they are unsure where to turn for help and are in fear of treatment and recovery with the associated costs (financial and otherwise) and the ensuing pain and cost of detox in a drug detox clinic.

The third stage is when the client prepares for recovery. This may involve 12-step meetings and making a firm resolution to stop drug use. The client may become discouraged at this point because they cannot stop on their own without help. They may start to consider addiction treatment at a drug rehab facility or an addiction treatment center.

The action stage may begin when attempts and methods in the pre-contemplation stage fail. The client realizes direct action is needed to change their life and begin recovery. They learn more about the disease of addiction and work through issues that may be blocking them from recovery and understand that change is possible.

The last stage is maintenance and relapse prevention. The client focuses on maintaining their recovery program as well as continuing to implement the tools learned in treatment for continuing to live their newly adopted healthy lifestyle.
