I've had quite a few questions over the years pertaining to the recovery programme we run at The Providence Projects Drug and Alcohol Detox and Treatment Rehabs and how we recommend attendance of AA, CA, NA and other 12 Step fellowships. And of course the 12 Steps. The question I get asked time and again is, "isn't it a religious program?" and my answer to that is a firm, no. I also get many others telling me their opinion of AA etc although they have never been to a meeting themselves or have only attended one or two while still loaded. The phrase, contempt prior to investigation' springs to mind.
I know from my own experiences how, when in the height of our dependence or addiction to alcohol and other drugs many of us become self-opinionated and blinkered. I do know a couple of things for sure. If you have all the answers and know what works and what doesn't how come you can't stop? The other thing I know for definite is; the only thing I was ever converted to by going to meetings was - Sobriety!!!!
I was once a helpless dope fiend and now I'm a dope less hope fiend.
How? Come along to The Providence Projects detox and rehabilitation centres, and learn how to come to terms with and break the cycle of your dependency upon alcohol and all other drugs... And start to live a life of freedom without being a slave to your drug of no choice. And, if you don't like recovery, you can carry on drinking and using and have all your misery and despair back in a shot..
Maybe you can take a little test by asking yourself
1. What positive things will drugs and alcohol give me today and in the future 2. What have drugs and alcohol already taken from me 3. What can drugs and alcohol still take away from me?
If drugs and/or alcohol are costing you more than money, it's a problem and if you need to try to control your drinking or drug use it's already out of control..
Come and have a look at what we do and see if it appeals to you
