Most Common Challenges
Your mind will try to convince you that you can "just have one and that nothing will happen". Don't trust it. Your track record has shown that it's not true ALL THE TIME.
Your mind will try to find exceptions to why you are in control and that you can do what you want. The truth is that when you act on that logic you have found that things tend to progress and get worse.
Allow other people to help you see the examples of your inability to stop once you start.
98% of recovering persons finds it to be less tempting to drink/use if they avoid places that they used in.
If that means that you have to avoid rooms in your home, work, or car, you might want to reset your thinking by asking for help by allowing friends and family to clean out your places so that when you get back it will be a safer environment to be in.
Often professionals, especially helping professionals, find it difficult to know where to ask for help. Enso has some solutions for you.
What Steps Will you Take to Defeat Prescription Drug Use
Enso approaches prescription drug abuse with holistic treatment that focuses on building your inner strength and utilizing techniques rather than immediately resorting to extensive inpatient treatment or drug based therapy.
While we know this is a great place to start, it is important to remember that prescription drug abuse is specific to each person.
Experience from Couples Therapy...
"Despite all evidence to the contrary, I am deeply private and will hardly ever disclose the full truth of my emotions to others. I have been able to be open in here because I have confidence in your skills, abilities, and training but more fundamentally, because I trust you as a person. For all of this I am grateful. While I know that (my partner) is the focus, I also need your help. You are a piece of my puzzle and I am glad I have been brought to you. Thanks for all you do."
