The Power of Acceptance: Embracing Change for a Brighter Future
Addiction to alcohol, nicotine, and other drugs happens in every corner of the earth. There are treatment centers of every shape, size, focus, price, and location. If you live in Toronto, and you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, we have a suggested option for you. And, it involves some fun to counter the hard work of rehab.
Toronto is a competitive business-oriented city, giving residents an edge and drive to succeed that might not show up in other cities. A continuous force of aggressive and dynamic business people are trying to carve their niche in the city. Toronto is a great place for climbing ladders. However, the stress, money, power, sparkle and anticipation can be a setup.
The perceived need to move faster, smarter, better is a magnet for using stimulants. Cocaine, amphetamines like Dexedrine, methamphetamine (crystal meth), Ritalin or Adderall are easy to find. And, they offer lots of energy to work harder and eat less, resulting in a slim figure for those sexy new clothes. These drugs offer a shiny promise of chaotic, unpredictable, explosive fun. Toronto has more than 8000 restaurants/bars/nightclubs to choose from, any day or time of the week, the party is on somewhere. But…this party only lasts so long.
To accommodate the days and weeks of full-blown binging on uppers, the next need is something to come down. Being high on Highway 401 for endless hours could push anyone to the margin of madness. The usual suspects in this next scenario for relief are alcohol, marijuana, benzodiazepines like Ativan, clonazepam or Xanax. There may be an addition of sleeping pills. And then, the move further down the narcotic quest to counterbalance the cacophony of cocaine are drugs like oxycodone, fentanyl or heroin. The bright young promise of hard work, scruples and integrity are out the window. No one stays honest if they are in active addiction. Unexplained absences, missing money, changes in appearance and demenour start getting noticed by others. Consequently lies, excuses, anger, resentment, and denial replace all good intentions. And the running on empty is exhausting, all the while trying to look good on the outside.
If you are reading this far, you may just be ready for the change that is possible. No one, no matter how educated, how rich, how good-looking or how smart, can get clean and sober on their own. Addiction cannot be treated in isolation. It is not easy to face, but you can find help if you are living in Toronto. Addiction Rehab may be the answer for you.
If you don’t want to stop, that is not our business.
If you think you can get clean and sober alone, go ahead and try it. Possibly you may be in the 1% that can. Keep in mind, there is a difference between white-knuckle sobriety and a holistic shift to peace, joy, acceptance, freedom and loving life.
There may seem like lots of treatment choices in Toronto and the rest of Canada. However, you may be very surprised once the investigation begins. Especially if this is your first foray into the drug addiction treatment world. And yes, it is a whole world unto itself. We have some other great blog articles detailing the different types of treatment options.You've probably never been one to settle.
The good is the enemy of the best.
You don't have to compromise your recovery by settling for inferior, government/insurance dictated programs filled with people sent from the justice system. These programs are often aiming at the bottom-line or looking for repeat customers. Programming and individual care are thin.Do you want to risk having a drug rehab record on your permanent medical or government files? Regardless of what the media is screaming about stigma or not, your recovery is your business. There is a big difference between secrecy and privacy. We do not advocate yelling to the world that you are an addict going to rehab. For this reason, give yourself at least one year of sobriety before you decide if public disclosure is still a good idea.
Jump off the GO Train, pull off the Gardiner Expressway, take the next exit off the 427, 407 or 400. Leave the bustle and rumble of the city, say adios to the CN Tower.
