Effects of Addiction : 5 Min. Podcast

Crossroads Recovery Centre · Effects of Addiction : 5min Contemplation

Have you ever sat down and wondered how the effects of addiction have manifested on yourself – physically and mentally?

There may be a number of effects of addiction : apathy, a draining of internal resources, health, (for example diabetes), a lack of motivation, a lack of commitment, a lack of grit. Have you become socially withdrawn, introverted, emotionally numb, hypervigilant or distracted ? Are you unable to be present in your life ?

What solutions have you looked at to manage the effects of your addiction ?

Have you perhaps looked at Rational Emotive Therapy (RET), spiritual solutions, have you asked for help ? The best way to find a solution in these circumstances is to ask for help – seek guidance from someone who has walked this path successfully themselves.

This podcast was recorded as a series of lectures given to people in 12 step addiction recovery treatment. The purpose of these talks was to teach and motivate individuals to search for their own spiritual solution to their addiction.

  • On the last day of my stint at Crossroads I could only express gratitude towards all who works there. A wise councillor once commented on my question when one is ready for rehab by explaining that when one is ready for rehab, rehab is ready for you.

  • I was lost and my soul was broken until I ended up at Crossroads and was introduced to the Twelve Steps. With the help of their excellent staff and amazing support I have recently been clean for 18 months, I could not have done it without them!
