R Redmond, WA is arguably the video game capital of the world as it is home to Nintendo and Microsoft. Video games provide people with a virtual reality that they can sink into in order to disconnect from the reality of life. In that way, it can be a coping mechanism, an escape into another reality. Drug and alcohol addiction can work in the same way but with worse consequences that are literally a matter of life and death.
Your life doesn’t need to bathe in the soft glow of virtual reality. You can experience joy, love and support in the real world. Research has shown that the levels of dopamine released in people’s brains doubles when they play video games. It is a chemical, addiction-inducing practice. Drug and alcohol addiction is a similar chemical experience that creates cravings in the individual for more of that feel.
A good way to recover from the need to connect to a virtual reality, whether through drugs or alcohol, is by re-imagining your relationships and re-connecting to the real world. Auburn is surrounded by pristine natural beauty and is the perfect place to re-connect with the world around you.
In recovery you are surrounded by peers and professionals who are committed to making sure that you are able to get back on your feet and stand solidly on the ground.
Drugs and alcohol can have the effect of keeping you above reality—disconnected—but when you are able to face the world with fresh eyes and a clear heart then it can become a place to enjoy, not run away from.
If your loved one is struggling with an addiction, consider holding an intervention for them in order to provide a space to communicate the hurt they are causing. Often, people who are in active addiction do not realize that they are hurting other people. When they learn this, they might be more willing to change their ways and seek out professional help.
Consider traveling for treatment to get away from the influences and people who helped foster your drug dependence. Traveling not only removes you from that environment but it also provides a means to start new in a different place. If you want to start again, call us now! (866) 578-7471
