Waco, Texas is a city in central Texas that was named after the Wichita Native American tribe known as the Waco. The city was site to the eleventh most deadly tornado in the history of the country. Natural disasters are a natural and unfortunate part of life. Unfortunately, addiction is an unnatural disaster that has put several people’s lives at risk.
Addiction does not discriminate. It threatens the lives of all types of people from all walks of life. One of the main avenues addiction happens to seize upon is isolation. The more people isolate, the greater chance they will fall prey to addiction. Part of recovery then, involves helping people connect with others in ways that help them become more human.
As mentioned, trying to help people connect with others is a big part of addiction treatment therapy. In group therapy sessions, people will learn or re-learn social skills that they might have lost in their addiction. They will learn skills such as setting healthy boundaries or communicating with others out of respect and not to manipulate. Fear based communication only perpetuates isolation.
Some people say that the opposite of addiction is sobriety. However, as the saying goes, it’s connection that is the opposite of addiction. When people connect with others they are investing in their recovery. Humans need each other. They need each other for meaning, love, trust and care. It’s important for people, especially those in recovery, to seek out genuine human connection.
Yes. You should travel for addiction treatment for a number of reasons. First of all, traveling for addiction treatment removes you from the people and circumstances that played a role in continuing your addiction. Addiction feeds off habits, so leaving the familiar places and people can go a long way in helping you stay on the recovery path.
Additionally, traveling for treatment helps you find more options for care. It’s easy to stay in the place you are familiar with, however, it might not have the best options for your specific needs. Treatment is the first step in recovery and it sets the foundation. Make it count.
