As important as Natural Addiction Recovery Treatment by Dalal Akoury, MD is for a recovering addict, it’s imperative to address the needs of those who are often barely surviving life with an addict. The addiction may be to drugs or alcohol, or gambling, sex, the internet, overeating, or overspending, it doesn’t matter, all addictions cause a ripple affect of harm throughout those they love and who love them.
Recognizing an addiction in a loved one is not always easy, addicts tend to be quite good at hiding their addictions and manipulating loved ones and friends in such a way that it’s often hard to see. The first step in surviving life with an addict is to accept reality of the situation, accepting that parts of one’s own life may be out of control due to the behavior of the addict. Although it’s easier to stay in denial and keep it private, it won’t get better just because you wish it would, it takes work on the part of everyone surrounding the addict.
Those close to an addict are constantly aware, constantly affected by, and constantly dealing with the daily realities life with an addiction. Often families are left destitute because all their resources have been given over to the addict to feed the unhealthy habit and keep the peace. There are countless ways that addicts manipulate and use those around them, from borrowing money, to asking favors and allowing their children to be taken care of by others while they are deferring to their addiction.
Choosing an Addiction Treatment Option
Natural Addiction Recovery Treatment offered at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center, not only addresses the physical requirements of addiction, but also the emotional and spiritual. Working with Dalal Akoury, MD during addiction treatment, patients and their loved ones are encouraged to be mindful of all aspects of recovery. Those closest to the addict may need guidance as well to assist the patient through the recovery process, and to find their own ways of surviving peacefully until balance and harmony are restored within the family.
The greatest advantage of Natural Addiction Recovery Treatment with Dalal Akoury, MD is that most addictions can be treated on an out-patient basis allowing the patients to continue their daily lives without disruption to their job and family.
Dr. Akoury says, “We find that if an addiction patient can go through treatment without leaving their job and family for in patient rehab centers, the likelihood of long term success is much greater. They don’t need to deal with the stress of being alone, the stigma of going to rehab, or the potential of losing their job and livelihood.”
The outpatient addiction treatment allows addicts and their families to take an active part in the recovery process, from the first step of surviving, recognizing the addiction!
