Shanti Therapy is an alcohol and drug rehab in Greenwood Village, Colorado. I am a Certified Treatment Counselor with the National Alcoholism Treatment Center. The term substance abuse and addiction is one that should not be ignored. This epidemic is ruining the lives of millions of Americans and has claimed the lives of over 20 million people. The great thing about Alcoholics Anonymous is that it offers hope through the 12 step programs and the one on one support that is given to each individual addict.
It is unfortunate that in our state of Colorado at this time is has been recognized that substance abuse and addiction are on the rise. There are many reasons as to why this is happening and some of them are because the trend is just becoming accepted as it is in our country. Other reasons are that marijuana is legal now for medicinal purposes. This means that addicts who use marijuana are not viewed as criminals, but as patients. As a result nothing changes from the first step, which is detoxification, to the next step which is rehabilitation.
The second step, lifelong learning, is important for addicts because they must learn that their actions have real consequences. The third step will be for them to learn how to deal with their anxiety and emotions that come with high-level substance abuse and addiction. The Shanti Therapy Drug Rehab in Greenwood Village Colorado offers addicts one last chance at a sober and healthy life.
