Morningside Recovery is here to help our clients begin to make better choices, every day. However, for those struggling with their addictions, it can be hard to imagine a day free of this never-ending cycle. Primary Therapist Brad Kingma discusses how our it’s hard to find the hope you need during treatment, but discovering hope is possible.
Struggling with Addiction
Primary Therapist Brad Kingma compares addiction to disarranging your furniture. A substance abuse problem creates disarray in your life. When you find yourself trapped in the endless cycle of addiction, you’re constantly isolating and distancing yourself from your loved ones. You’re also creating a distance between who were before your addiction. As you struggle, you find your life is out of order, similar to disarranged furniture. As you distance yourself, you no longer feel a connection to yourself, your family and friends, or any type of higher power.
So what is hope when it comes to treatment and sobriety? In fact, how do you discover hope as you begin your journey? Our Primary Therapist Brad Kingma returns to the furniture analogy. Individuals must begin the process of placing their furniture back in order. Recognizing that your life is currently out of order and that you lack an ability to managing your life is the first step in receiving help. As you put your furniture back in its place, you are grasping a new understanding and belief in yourself and your life. Hope during treatment is learning and believing that:
- I am important
- My loved ones need me
- I need my loved ones
While struggling with addiction, many fail to see their purpose in life. Discovering hope is discovering your purpose in life. As a result, you’re able to reconnect with yourself, your family and friends, and your higher power. You can also make the commitment that your life will have meaning and significance moving forward.
