Birmingham, Alabama is the location where Martin Luther King Jr. was jailed and subsequently wrote his famous treatise on injustice titled: Letter from a Birmingham Jail. In a similar vein, there are people imprisoned by the uncompromising affliction of addiction.
There isn’t any place in the country that’s safe from the nefarious disease and Birmingham is no different. A lot of people who fall into addiction have forgotten who they are and what they live for.
Recovery, then, becomes a process of reclamation–where you learn who you are and what you should live for.
The best way to help someone struggling with addiction is to hold an intervention for them. An intervention gathers family and friends to help communicate the heartbreak the addiction causes.
A lot of times, people who struggle with addiction do not realize the hurt they are causing others.
Communicating this to them in a non-judgmental manner can go a long way in providing them with an alternative to their abuse. Isolation often serves as a catalyst for addiction, so when people in active addiction understand that they are loved and cared for, they can make a change.
