Alcohol and Drug Dependency

Dependence on alcohol or other drugs is a widespread problem.  Recent statistics indicate that nearly 90% of chemically dependent people get no treatment of any kind.  What this means is that denial is heavy and that thereLouisville Drug and Alcohol Addiction Help are several “functional addicts/alcoholics” that are in our families and around us as coworkers and friends.  Many times, chemically dependent people don’t even recognize it.

Chemical dependency is defined as the inability to control the use of some physical substance, not being able to limit how much is used.   One of the goals of the InnerView is to cut into the denial of this 90% number and begin to lead those who need help to a treatment experience that will change their life.  If you have a dependency problem or know of someone who does, recognizing it can help you to move toward a happier and healthier life, free of the bondage that dependency creates to one centered on possibilities and solutions rather than a series of compounding problems.

Here are some signs that might indicate a chemical dependency problem in you or someone you love:

– Trying to cut down or quit using a substance and failing at it
– Blackouts or lapses of memory after use
– Using the substance while alone or hiding the evidence of use
– Using the substance to forget about problems or worries
– Doing things under the influence that cause regret afterwards
– Not being able to enjoy an event without the substance
– Neglecting responsibilities in order to use the substance
– Family, friends, or employer expressing concern about use
– Being willing to do almost anything to get the substance
– Financial or legal problems from using the substance

Recognizing that there is a problem and saying it out loud to someone who can help is the first step toward recovering.
