Description

Nobody really needs to look at statistics to know that there is a substance abuse issue in the United States. In today’s world, we have people working two and three jobs just to make ends meet, children are often left at home alone, and the amount of quality time for ourselves and our families is almost non-existent. Many people are finding themselves in overwhelming situations with minimal ways to cope with them all.

So, many people come home from the stressful job and pour themselves an alcoholic beverage to help them relax. And, for many people, once they have had one or two of those beverages, they stop and continue on with their activities. There are others, however, whose “Stop” button is stuck on “Go”; once they start with one beverage, they just continue until they pass out or get sick. The next day, they repeat the behavior, so it has now become a habit. When the habit gets out of control, there is an abuse problem.

This course discusses the mindset of those who abuse substances, like what makes the behavior start and ultimately stop. Stopping an abuse problem is relatively easy to do. Staying “stopped” is what becomes a cyclical problem, complete with shame and remorse, then justification due to the shame, and then the problem rearing its ugly head, once again.

Identifying the triggers that rev up the mind to think it needs a substance that is eventually abused is the key to avoiding relapses. Everyone will have different triggers, and the understanding that the triggers are in control goes a very long way in conquering the substance abuse pattern. Also, finding other stimuli that feels good, i.e. massage, can help an individual move past the desire to start the abusive behavior again.

Whether or not you or someone you know has a problem, this course will help in understanding the steps and behaviors that lead to the abuse in the first place. It also gives great insight into what it takes to get clean and stay clean. You never know; you might find yourself in a position where you are asked to be a support system for someone with a substance abuse. Knowing what you are dealing with and why it is happening can be the key to changing someone’s life for the better!
