Long-Term Treatment for Alcoholics Addicts

Rate this post

Alcoholics Anonymous (and its offshoots) is the great success story in the treatment of addictions. On any given day, more people go to AA groups around the world than attend any other form of therapy. The message of AA is compelling and translates very well across different drugs, social classes, and cultures. AA groups are so numerous and so varied that almost anyone can find a congenial one that is readily available, conveniently located, and probably meeting that night. AA provides hope, a philosophy of life, a spiritual reawakening, an emotional experience, concrete support, a sound­ing board, great advice, and help for family members. It is all the more remarkable that it does all this with virtually no bureaucracy or budget.

The goal of treatment must be complete abstinence from the substance for life. Almost always, people with substance problems resist this goal, hoping instead to return to a state of “controlled” substance use. Although there is an occasional person with Substance Dependence who can eventually go back to social use, this goal is totally unrealistic for the vast majority of users. Becoming dependent seems to reflect a fundamental inability— mediated at the brain level—to just have a little bit, without need­ing more. You may have periods in which you control your drug intake by setting up stern self-imposed limits (“I’m only going to have one joint tonight.”,  “As long as I don’t drink alone, it’s okay.” , “No drugs after 10 P.M.”). Invariably, and before very long, there are seemingly endless and irresistible reasons to bend a rule slightly (“I’m under a tremendous amount of stress.” “I’m celebrating a promotion.” “All work and no play make Jack a dull boy.”

For new moms, finding time to exercise can be a big challenge. With so many changes taking place, getting into a routine that involves workouts and gym visits is not always at the top of ones to do list. In order to get back in shape it takes a great deal of motivation, determination and encouragement. By getting friends and family involved with the process many women can get into their workout grove, instead of immediately turning to thigh liposuction or facial liposculpture.

One great way to get motivated is to join a workout group. Whether it’s a running club or a weekly workout class for new mothers, having others in similar situations is a great boost for anyone looking to lose weight. Many new mothers enjoy these group workout sessions because of the bonding experience that comes along with the workouts.

The many Health Benefits of Vitamin E

Vitamin E can be sourced naturally directly from sunlight, however, many of us are not lucky enough to live in a climate that gives us access to it all year round. It is therefore essential to source the vitamin from elsewhere. Vitamin E can be sourced from various foods including the likes of sunflower seeds, raw nuts, almonds, dry roasted nuts, olives, boiled spinach, papaya, swiss chard, boiled mustard greens, cooked collard greens, cooked turnip greens and blueberries. All of the above add great flavour to a variety of breakfast cereals, yogurts, main meals and salads. They can of course also be enjoyed as a healthy snack on the go or at work; this is a great alternative to the likes of chocolate bars, crisps and sweets. If however you are unable to source the above naturally then you should look to investing in a vitamin supplement, which can be taken as part of a healthy diet daily.
