Addictions and Recovery from Helpguide.org
Getting caught in the addiction cycle can make recovery seem impossible. But with the right treatment, support, and lifestyle changes, it is possible to get back on track. Taking the initiative to make a change is the first step of addiction recovery. Many different treatment options are available and each person may need a different treatment plan. Learning healthy ways to cope with stress and deal with cravings will take time, but will tremendously help with the recovery process. Friends and family are great sources of support, and support groups with other recovering addicts are easily accessible. read more on helpguide.org
