The first step in recovering from drug and/or alcohol addiction is recognizing that you have a problem. You can’t fix your air conditioner if you don’t notice the coolant leaking on the floor, and the same concept applies to addiction. You cannot begin to treat the problem of addiction until you realize that there’s a problem in the first place. If you pay no attention to the signs of drug and/or alcohol addiction, you cannot stop it from continuing. Everybody’s path to recovery is unique, but there are some common positive changes that take place once you recognize that you have a problem: Addiction loses its power over you. Addiction thrives off of control, when you admit that you have a problem you become empowered to treat the problem and addiction loses its control over you. You discover you’re not alone. Drug and/or alcohol addiction only continues when you feel isolated. Recognizing the problem of addiction allows you to accept the love and support which is all around you. The future becomes brighter. Recognizing that you have a problem does not magically fix your struggles, but it does begin setting changes in motion that brighten your future. Once you recognize your problem, you can start taking actions to fix it. Recognizing your problem is the first part of recovery.
