Heroin is one of the worst drugs to get added to, in my journey which ended up in severe heroin addiction my exposure to the drug world was vast and the insights which I learned many, especially when it comes to drug rehabilitation and why so many people who enter into these programs relapse after a shot time of being clean.
In my opinion, when it comes to drug addiction rehabilitation, most of the emphasis is placed on getting the addict past the withdrawal stage, so that they are stabilized and able to function once again but, normally they are able to only function in a controlled environment such as the rehab center where they are shielded from the pressures of normal everyday life.
Unfortunately when the addict leaves the drug addiction rehabilitation program, they are once again faced with the same or other problems and situations which were there before but now they are out there alone again, none of the core issues which led to their addiction in the first place have truly been treated with and once again they will present themselves in a way which will spark the need to use again.
This is just the way it is, time and time again I have seen this with friends and fellow users, into drug rehabilitation, they come out and are all fired up to stay clean and normally it would not be more than a month or two before I bumped into them in one of the local drug dens, all of the time, effort and money spent on rehabilitation simply going up in smoke.
I myself only went to one stabilization or drug addiction rehabilitation facility and from the day I walked out of there I have managed to stay clean, that is more than 10 years ago and I am still going strong.
So what made me be able to enter into one rehabilitation institute after more than a decade of abuse and addiction and then manage to stay clean for more than 10 years?
I will tell you what it was, my intention was there, I faced my inner demons and came to terms with all the unjustices which lead me down the road to addiction. At the end of the day, you can go to the best drug addiction rehabilitation centers in the world, but without your intent and focus are correct, you will change nothing, you will relapse and you will end up as another failed statistic.
Luckily there are ways which can enable anyone to access their drug addiction and to leave a drug addiction rehabilitation facility and actually stay clean and the best part of all is that it is far simpler than you think.
