Hopelessness and desperation are the feelings most often associated with addiction. Individuals struggling with addiction know this all too well. The 'cycle' of addiction is another word used by addicts and health professionals alike, and it holds a connection to the feelings of hopelessness and desperation. The repeating cycle of quitting and starting leads to a feeling that all hope is gone and there is no return.
But there is hope, and addicts can learn that hope and change can come to their lives and that they can make a full return to a healthy and happy life. The hope lies in recovery programs and treatment, such as 12 step recovery programs.
Where an individual seeks treatment for his/her addictions can also dictate the level of hope that they have, and can greatly effect their recovery process. This is why so many rehabilitation facilities and residential treatment centers are located in beautiful locations with luxurious surroundings and amenities and activities that re-invigorate mind body and soul.
