Redesigning Outpatient Recovery

One size does not fit all. Finding and practicing a unique and individualized recovery path can mean the difference between a temporary fix and truly changing.

What if drugs or alcohol aren’t the problem, but a symptom of underlying causes?

slide10Oftentimes in recovery circles, families think that drugs or alcohol are just SYMPTOMS of a problem. Unfortunately, however, rarely do you hear what exactly is the problem. So many people have this vague understanding that perhaps the drugs, alcohol, or addictive behaviors aren’t really the problem, but they are usually left somewhat hanging. And, as a result, they end up trying to fix the symptoms (drugs, alcohol, et al) rather than focus on the problems themselves.

But what if there was an underlying problem? And what if this problem not only created symptoms of drugs, alcohol, and other things but also other common symptoms that exist in most everyone who walks the path of addiction?

Sooner or later, someone struggling with addiction often decides to quit.

Well, quit what? Drugs, pills, huffing, marijuana, heroin, cocaine, alcohol, gambling, pornography, sitting around the house, not looking for work, watching TV, video games, etc. The list goes on and on. Whenever someone contacts Heartland Recovery Center for help, the first thing they do is try to describe the problem.

“My son is addicted to heroin.”

“My wife can’t quit shopping.”

“My friend is an alcoholic.”

Within moments they have described the problem in the best way that they know how, with the behavior or substance that their loved one is abusing.

But what if that isn’t the real problem at all?

Emotional Model of Recovery

Although there are many different ways of looking at addiction, we have developed an emotional model of recovery. We believe that emotions and feelings are at the core of every addiction and understanding emotions allows us to see the reasons why addicts behave the way they do, even when they are sober. When we first started work in the intervention field, it became pretty obvious that everybody in the family had their own “model” of addiction and in most cases weren’t ever on the same page. Having a model that everyone agrees upon allows us to work together as a team.
