Getting Back On Track
Addiction & Places For Help
Now, you may be wondering why people may give a pass on the family and head straight to school. The reasons differ by each individual. For example, not every family has the same view on Addiction. At school, while everyone is entitled to their personal opinions, whomever you approach for help should help. Also, since most adults whom you might ask for help have worked at the school for a long time, there is an even higher chance of success because they've seen and dealt with similar cases.
In The Community
One of the advantages of confiding in to a doctor or medical practitioner is that they are sworn to secrecy. Whatever you tell them stays with them. They also have undergone years of training, so it is highly likely that they can give you some good advice.
Support Groups are another well-used solution to Addiction. With support groups, you can easily meet a lot of people who may have already gone through this difficulty or who know someone who has. Another pro is that they are usually held at easily accessible locations, such as Churches.
Lastly, Rehab. In this way, you have a place to stay (It's a live-in resolution) and therapy at the same time. Rehabilitation has also been popularized by the media and celebrities and has a considerably high success rate.
The community is often chosen because the patient doesn't know their supporters, so it is in a way, a temporary solution. On the other hand, though, you can also meet great people and make long-lasting relationships.
So, To Sum It Up...
No one can force you to do anything. But, they can influence you. I hope this "Smore" has persuaded you to make the right decision when the time comes.
