The World Health Organization recognizes addiction as a disease. WHO terms alcohol, drug, substance and non-substance abuse as ‘Dependency Syndrome.’ That’s the reason why addicts require prolonged and sustained therapies to overcome their dependency.
The disease called addiction afflicts a victim in three parts: Physically, Mentally and Spiritually. That’s why we at Phoenix Foundation focus on physical, mental and spiritual bankruptcy of all addicts and help them overcome dependency on substances and non-substances.
Women and men become addicts for various reasons.
- Dysfunctional family.
- Baseless fears.
- Lack of self-confidence or total diffidence.
- Inability to express oneself.
- Inability to cope up with stress.
- Emotionally stressful situations in life.
- Sense of inadequacy.
- Genetic factors.
- Lack of understanding by others.
- Feeling of emptiness and loneliness.
Basically, lots of defects of character that’re present in every human being get more pronounced in an addict. As a result, they become hostile towards their families and the society in general.
The WHO also terms addiction as an incurable disease. That means, once an addict, always an addict. However, there’re ways and means to overcome addiction. That’s by undergoing a total behavioral change.
At Phoenix Foundation, we train addicts how to take small steps daily to bring about this change in their behaviors and overcome defects of character. This is done through group sessions and one-on-one counseling from our team of highly skilled and experienced counselors.
Usually, an addict doesn’t wish to harm anyone because they’re timid persons. However, when they’re under the influence of a substance, they behave very differently. At Phoenix Foundation, we identify these undesirable behavioral traits and help addicts to lead a normal life.
Since addiction has no known medical cure, recovery from this deadly disease can be done only by arresting the disease itself. That’s why we teach addicts the “one-day-at-a-time” principle. Any addict can practice this principle with fair ease and remain sober while gaining complete manageability of their life.
The most visible symptom of addiction is unmanageability. Any person that finds themselves unmanageable or have thoughts leading to unmanageability is prone to addiction. Hence, we train addicts on how to overcome total unmanageability in their own lives through an honest, self-assessment and assistance through our counselors.
Contrary to popular belief, any person doesn’t become an addict overnight. It happens over several months and years of neglect of defects in character and impacting behavior. No addict enjoys their addiction.
However, they continue drinking alcohol, abusing drugs, or in non-substance addictions because they can’t find a way out. At Phoenix Foundation, we help all kinds of addicts to find the way out of this disease, arrest the disease on a daily basis and become a respectable member of the society.
If your family member of you’re a victim of addiction of any kind, there’s nothing to worry. Give us a call and our team will be ready to help you 24 x 7.
