Why do people feel the need to express their choice of treatment is the best.
If you want to share what Treatment worked for you,educate,give options,share your success,write away,that's what we want to hear!
It takes alot of heart to even admit you have this disease in an open forum,even more to share your journey with others.I am always so proud to hear and see us encouraging each other,sharing accomplishments etc.
But when it turns to.. this treatment is better than yours,I just want to shake them!!
Whatever works People!!
Whether it is:
- Residental Treatment
Remember that others are in early recovery in the treatment of their choice.Negative talk about other's choices only makes them second guess themselves and the path they have chosen.It can work their brain into thinking this isn't going to work..so it doesn't.The mind is a powerful thing,which all people with addiction know only to well!! So let's not play mind games.
Let's be positive,embrace whatever treatment they chose,celebrate their success,encourage when they stumble..Let's not divide our community into" mine is bigger then yours" mentality.The only people who benefit from that kind of talk is those who look down on addiction,are uneducated about addiction and judge without walking our path.We receive enough Judgement without Judging each other !
Peace & love..xoxo
