Located between New Haven and Bridgeport lies Milford, Connecticut. Home to just over 52,000 people this small city is nestled in between of Connecticut’s most major cities. Most of these people go about their lives in a happy and healthy way. But like any other city in the country, Milford contains citizens who struggle with drug addiction and alcoholism.
These diseases cast their shadows on millions of people on a daily basis. It does not matter your age or background; addiction can take control of your life almost instantly. Many people start using drugs or alcohol on a social setting, with friends for special occasions or weekends. Others start using to escape reality because of stress or drama that is going on in their life. And for a few, some start abusing substances because of something that happened in their past. It does not matter the reason; the main point is that anyone’s drug use or drinking problem can get out of hand quick.
Addicts and alcoholics often times go into denial about their problem. Claiming nothing is wrong with them and they can handle their substances just fine. They do not notice that they are hurting their relationships because of the choices they are making. Addicts make sure that getting loaded is their main and only priority and they will do whatever it takes to do so. That includes lying, cheating and stealing.
Many wonder why addicts just don’t go to rehab and get their problem taken care of. The truth is, many addicts and alcoholic do not come forward because they are afraid they will lose what little they already have. They do not believe their friends and family will help them, they will only criticize them. Guilt rushes over them, making them embarrassed to ask anyone for help. This puts forth a feeling of isolation which makes them want to continue feeding their cycle of abuse. All of a sudden they use more heroin, more cocaine or consume more liquor.
After a while their body develops a chemical dependency to these drugs. The chemicals in their brain are remapped to make the body believe that they need these substances to feel normal. That is when their problem gets out of hand because they no longer have control of their using. Even if they do not want to get high or drunk their mind will make them believe they do.
