When you first begin to take drugs it is usually as a way to cope with something in your life that is causing emotional pain; something that you don’t know how to handle. The drugs take away the pain and make you feel good for a little while. It might be some time before you realise there is a serious problem and what your friends or parents have been telling you for some time is really true; you are suffering from drug addiction.
This is the time to make some major decisions, before it is really too late. It is time to book into rehab to get off those drugs and get your life back. That doesn’t have to mean you have to suffer from the emotional pain that caused you to take drugs in the first place. If you can get to the right facility for drug rehabilitation your treatment will include counselling to find out what it was you were trying to get relief from and you’ll be taught how to deal with it in a different way; one that doesn’t give you an addiction.
To that end, your parents or other loved ones may have to undergo counselling with you. That’s good, because it will teach them how to change their ways and stop doing or saying those things that hurt you. Your parents love you, but sometimes they don’t know how to cope with certain behaviours. And sometimes they too, were hurt by their parents in the same way.
Because drug rehab is so expensive in Australia, the trend is to go overseas for treatment, especially to Bali, because it is so easy to get to and so affordable. It won’t cost the earth for your parents to stay there in other accommodation while they undergo counselling with you.
The Bali drug rehab centre is located in a quiet, private area right on the beach and is known for its beauty. It’s not like you are going to a stern institution or even a hospital; it’s more like a lovely place to stay – a resort – where there is a team of highly trained and compassionate health care providers to look after you. And the meals are great.
During your recovery time you’ll be able and encouraged to spend time enjoying your life with different activities such as swimming in the ocean or horse-riding. It’s probably been a long time since you’ve done anything like that. Getting your life back is possible; you just have to make a firm decision now to not let those drugs ruin your life any longer. Your family and friends are sure to agree with your decision and give you as much support as they are able.
