But with the help of Alcoholism Treatment Albuquerque, recovery is possible, and we can help you find the perfect place to recover. This does not mean that the process is easy. Recovery requires motivation and courage in the face of adversity.
The first and, arguably, toughest step to begin recovery, is to recognize that you have a problem. If a patient is not willing to admit addiction, then they will not be willing to put forth the necessary amount of effort. Once they do recognize they have a substance abuse problem, then they are ready to begin the recovery process. For most people, it takes an event that is life-shattering before they are willing to recognize they have a problem. These events are usually referred to as "hitting rock bottom" or "having a moment of clarity." A rock bottom moment can be different for everyone, but they are always characterized by the urge to seek help. For example, the loss of friends and family, the loss of a job, the loss of a home and the loss of a meaningful marriage or relationship are common life events that cause addicts to seek help for their problems. If you or someone you love has reached their rock bottom, then it is the perfect time to call Albuquerque Alcoholism Treatment for consultation and information on the recovery process and treatment facility options. It is important to act quickly because these types of events only last so long before another relapse occurs.
