What Does Opiate Recovery Mean To You?
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA): “Recovery from alcohol and drug problems is a process of change through which an individual achieves abstinence and improved health, wellness and quality of life.”
We can learn a lot by listening to addicts themselves talk about their experiences. Below, we have provided you a link to a PodCast from a group session organized by Gail Gabbert, an addiction counselor. Gail has taken the initiative to record all of her sessions. She has provided us exclusive access to these sessions in order that we provide this insight to our subscribers here at www.HEROiNinME.com.
Why not go directly to the source to gain more information about drug addiction. These group members are currently recovering from their heroin or pain pill addictions. They are hurting and giving their best effort to beat addiction. However, they also have a lot to say about addiction. Below are the discussion points that they will be referring to.
Recovery means something different to each individual. Some addicts refer to recovery as a life-long task that never ends. Alcoholism is also referred to as always being ‘in recovery’ for life. One day at a time. This makes sense because drug addiction cant haunt the mind of the addict for many, many years. However, we at HEROin Me, believe that an addict can completely defeat their addiction and basically forget about it. In this case, we would call the addict ‘RECOVERED’. Not always in recovery.
