One Step At A Time

Dear Malani,

It is good that you recognize that you have a problem, a Substance Use Disorder (SUD). That is the first major obstacle to getting better. There are many options available to you, depending on your ability to pay for services. I would recommend a physical examination to determine your overall health and to see if there are any other issues that would get in the way of your becoming clean.

Many people think they can handle their addiction issues alone, but this is not necessary and certainly not recommended. You need to get out of the environment and away from your daily routine. If all of your friends are drug users, get new friends. You need to turn the other way.

Seek treatment and follow that treatment with a good recovery program. You need the love and support of people who understand you, which is why Alcoholics Anonymous is such a valuable source of support. You need to make a decision to change your life and get away from everything that causes you to use and perpetuate your disease.

You can make a call to a local drug treatment center and ask them what your options are for treatment. If you do not have insurance or financial means, there are free clinics and county social services that you can call for a possible solution.

Remember, AA is FREE and if you are serious about kicking your habit, they will be there for you. It works if you work it. Faith-based groups, such as the Salvation Army, have excellent resources to help you.

Whatever you do, please don’t try to do it alone, or shut off your family and those who love you. You will not earn any points for being brave, or being self-sustaining. No person is an island, so allow others to love you and support you during this time.

You can do this, so make that first call.
