Going to a Florida Drug Rehab for Addiction Help


During my active addiction I lived all over the country.  I lived in various areas of New York, Southern California and Arizona.  Each time I moved I always had the same intentions. When I would get to my  new destination I would always promise to myself that I would change my life around and live life free of drug and alcohol addiction. Sometimes I was able to do this for a couple of weeks before my alcohol and drug addiction would kick back in at full force.  I was slowly able to figure out that it wasn’t the people I hung around with that were causing my addiction.  It was me.  I also learned that I wasn’t only trying to cure my addiction through a geographical cure, but that I was running away from my problems which ultimately caused me to abuse drugs.

I don’t believe that there is such thing as a geographical cure unless that geographical change is to go to an addiction treatment center.  The last time I moved, a little over four years ago and the same time I finally got sober was to Florida.  It was in Florida that I finally gave up and decided to seek help in the form of addiction treatment.  Leaving my “current” hometown to go to addiction treatment was one of the best things that I ever did for myself.  It allowed me to escape all the drama and chaos that comes with drug addiction.  In Florida I was able to get a fresh start and because I was finally sober my choice in friends were different then the past.

Addiction treatment allowed me to work with professional therapist and process past experiences that were ultimately fueling my addiction.  My treatment experience in the Florida drug rehab went so well that I decided to once more move my life.  This move was different though.  Not only did I want to get sober like I did in all of my previous moves around the country, I took the actions necessary.
