S Santa Rosa, CA is home to many communities of family and friends. However, many individuals are threatened by an epidemic of addiction and chemical dependency. Unlike any other disease, addiction is known to directly affect the cognitive functions regarding logic and decision-making.
When an individual repeatedly uses a mind-altering substance, it creates a neurological pathway that reinforces and even expects the repeated use of psychoactive substances. In this process, the user’s brain will become adjusted to the unhealthy attachment to the pattern.
Given the alteration of the subconscious mind by psychoactive substances, the addicted mind may actually value substances over other basic necessities like food or water. In order to preserve the repeated use of drugs or alcohol, individuals then resort to lying, manipulative behavior, or even engaging in criminal behavior.
Even though an individual may not ordinarily commit theft or lie to those closest to him/her, the nature of addiction impairs the executive functioning that governs reason. Thus the need for addiction treatment for citizens of Santa Rosa, CA is greater than ever.

When addressing issues of substance use with those you care for, it is imperative to keep a few points in mind. The key to a successful intervention lies in a delicate balance of assertiveness and sensitivity. If one would be too overbearing or accusatory, the individual with addiction would likely be driven away; not resulting in any progress or motivation to pursue treatment.
Yet, if the intervention is too subtle, the seriousness of the issue would not likely be addressed. The most important part of any intervention would reside in the genuine expression of concern.

Oftentimes, recovery may be require the help of more than one person. If an individual goes through recovery alone, there is an increased likelihood of encountering high risk situations and relapse triggers.
High-risk situations often include familiar elements of one’s addictive past that threaten to draw recovering individuals back into addictive patterns. Many of these occurrences may take the form of past acquaintances (such as dealers or people one previously used substances with), familiar locations (such as places one used or purchased substances) or high-stress anniversaries (such as holidays or deaths of loved ones).
When many of these elements present themselves, individuals are at a greatly increased probability of being triggered. When an individual experiences a triggering sensation that is not properly addressed, the familiar addictive circuitry in the brain is reactivated, thus immensely escalating the risk of relapsing.
However, with the help of support groups, individuals are strengthened with bonds of fellowship and genuine connection. Studies have shown that recovering individuals who are engaged in a form of social support are less likely to experience occurrences of relapse, even in the face of high risk situations and triggering elements.
In meetings and support groups, recovering individuals are able to receive both encouragement from other group member, as well as receive guidance and advice for coping with high-risk situations.
With an adequate support group, individuals are more able to attain and maintain a successful recovery lifestyle.
Local meetings are a great way to maintain sobriety. It is suggested that people attend meetings everyday after they leave treatment for about 5 months. Meetings are safe places for sharing and growing. Find a meeting today!
