The question about drug addiction is are we addicted to the feeling we get from the drug, rather than the substance itself? The answer may be that the addiction comes from the feel good chemicals released by our body and the issue may be trying to deal with those feelings. Almost every case we handle, we have been able to treat successfully, by focusing on this idea.
Most of us make decisions based on how good we feel about those decisions, and try to achieve goals based on how good we will feel. Social media, peer pressure and advertising all persuade us that we should feel happy all the time, and there is something wrong if we don't. Of course, that feeling of elation that we get from making a good decision is only temporary.
Unless you have taken drugs, imagine being able to be instantly happy, peaceful and relaxed simply by taking an affordable and easily available substance. This wonderful feeling of happiness can last anywhere from about 20 minutes to several days, depending on the drug you take, and you feel much better than you ever did by buying a new outfit or going on a date.
However, even though you feel absolutely wonderful after taking this substance, the feeling doesn't last and after a certain time, you realize you have to deal with life again - school, work, money, relationships, all that stuff. A friend tells you that you can experience that feeling of utter happiness simply by taking some more of the drug. You then have two choices - to take more of the drug, and then keep taking it, or tell yourself that the come down is not worth it, despite the wonderful high you experienced.
This is the key question we have asked about drug addiction at our rehabilitation centre. We have asked whether the feeling of being high, happy or relaxed can be induced some other way, without taking drugs, and whether things holding us back and preventing happiness can be overcome. Loving ourselves, healing our wounds and taking responsibility for our life can all help to provide the answer.
We are proud to have created these unique and highly effective drug rehab methods, and are able to induce these feelings of happiness and contentment - these highs - naturally, without having to take drugs.
If we have something inside of us that needs to be fixed or healed, we typically experience negative emotions, and instead of effectively healing whatever needs to be healed, we look for quick fixes. These negative emotions are trying to tell us that all is not as it should be - perhaps we aren't spending enough time with that special someone, perhaps we aren't behaving as we know we should, or perhaps that there is something else about ourselves don't like.
We can effectively help to show you how to get off ice, and the proven methods at our Melbourne ice rehab centre can help you eliminate these negative emotions and get your life back on track.
