Rehab for Alcoholism

Rehab for alcoholism is where alcohol dependent people go to transition from a repetitive self-defeating lifestyle brought about by the emotional, spiritual and physical bondage to alcohol, to a repetitive self-fulfilling recovering lifestyle brought about by the emotional, spiritual and physical enrichment that emerges from a sound and serene recovery lifestyle.

Recovery from Alcoholism

At the beginning of alcohol abuse recovery you may not be sure just what it is you want or expect. You may know only that you can’t stand it anymore the way it has been. You may have been so far down that that you had reached the point where all you knew was that you didn’t want to die.

You may think that what you want is what almost every alcohol dependent person seems to want at first—to be able to drink “like normal people,” that is, with all the “fun” but without the horrible consequences they have had for you. You may experience that once you’ve become abstinent for any length of time at all, you’ll be “cured”— that just stopping will make it possible to stop forever, without any trouble. Or perhaps you’ve quit already—and fallen off the wagon, unable to sustain the discipline, not getting the support it takes to stay clean and sober. Maybe you think sober is for other people, people who are tough enough to hack it. Maybe you never understood what recovery would mean in the first place. Going it alone and going cold turkey doesn’t work for most people, but how could you know if you’ve placed yourself in virtual solitary confinement with your addiction?

Alcoholism: How We Can Help

That’s where Royal Life Centers comes in. We will guide you through recovery from start to finish, starting with abstinence and ending with true recovery—a new life that will be really worth living. And it will teach you the difference between abstinence—just quitting—and recovery, and why recovery makes so much real sense.
The truth is, abstinence—giving up alcohol and drugs entirely—is not recovery, although it’s the absolutely necessary first step. Abstinence alone should never be the final goal. A lifetime of recovery tormented by constant urges for that next drink—what the experts call “white-knuckle sobriety”—will almost always fail. It’s like gritting your teeth and just barely hanging on. It’s nothing like as bad as being an alcoholic, but it’s not great. Real recovery is great.

Finding The Recovery ‘Zone’

The idea—and it is achievable—is to reach that point of personal development and integration that could be compared to what athletes call “finding the zone” or psyche-physicists call “losing all sense of space-time geometry,” or for most others when one’s thoughts are so focused that they pass their very own home after a hard day’s night.

The zone, black-hole, wormhole, eye-of-the tiger, rabbit-hole, highly inner disciplined meditative state, highly focused or being “One” with the Universe, is a state in which practicing participants suddenly feel that their performance is inspired and effortless, as if they were not concentrating on their actions at all but the actions perform themselves—and at a higher level than they had ever before achieved. This happened when your eight hour work day feels like less than a couple of hours or when your one hour commute feels like ten minutes.

The zone is that point where one has mastered the skills or techniques (in your case, the techniques of abstinence, of good problem solving—of daily living without drugs—where the techniques have become a part of you; where you have become part of the techniques; not something you do but something you are. You no longer have to think about staying sober, you just are. The zone is where something indefinable within yourself takes over the conscious efforts, bringing mastery with it.

Our team of addiction specialists make themselves available to take your call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
