When drugs are involved, the first step to making a change usually occurs after you become aware that your life has become unmanageable in some way. It doesn’t matter how you got here, what’s important is that you’re looking for answers to deal with your current circumstances. Once you find new ways of coping with life’s problems, without the use of drugs, the tight grip addiction has on your life will begin to loosen its hold over you. Recovery is possible with the right professional help and social support.
