By now, most of you know what it means to have hang-ups. It is a worrying time and aren’t you just wishing it would end. And aren’t you just so sick and tired of hearing people tell you to stop doing that. Stop having hang-ups. You are just so weak. But if only they knew what you were going through. But they know. Therapists and their helping caregivers running their substance abuse treatment savannah programs know what you are going through.
They are not here to judge you. They have your best interests in mind. And on their hearts too, to be sure. In your current state of distress, they should be reminding you that this is something that could have happened to anyone. It happens to the best as they say. One moment you were having a quiet drink with your friends after work. Or watching a ballgame over the weekend. And the next moment, you could not go a day without a drink.
By now you know the feeling. To say that it could not have been helped would have been churlish. But so it goes. One of the things that you will be taught during the program is to take full responsibility for your actions. But there will also be this. It is your time to be humble and gracious. You have been allowed to accept that you are human and that you could make mistakes. As may have been the case for you in recent times.
In your state of grace, you are now placed in a position to tell others about the dangers of substance abuse. And you are now able to show them with great hope and pride what it can be to reach the other side.
