Description

For a person going through the recovery process, perhaps the most important thing a loved one can offer to them is their unwavering support. Overcoming addiction is a difficult task, from the initial physical discomfort of withdrawal symptoms to the psychological stresses of self-discovery and learning how to deal with reemerging emotions in a positive manner. When a patient stops using drugs or alcohol to escape from or numb themselves to past traumas and feelings of guilt, anger, pain or remorse, addressing these underlying causes of their addictions can be a tough prospect to face. It is essential to a successful rehabilitation that the patient receives encouragement and support with every step that they take on the path to recovery. In an effort to remain an effective force in the battle against substance abuse, Choices Recovery often reaches outside of the halls of our treatment center to speak with individuals who have seen and felt the effects of addiction in their lives or in the lives of people close to them. At Durkin Entertainment’s “RockNRolla Movie Awards” EcoLuxe Lounge, a recent event held at the famous Avalon Hollywood and sponsored by Choices, we had the opportunity to speak with many of the attendees who stopped by to learn about the various holistic, eco-friendly and socially conscious goods and services that were featured there that day, as well as some of the providers of those products. One of the people showcased at the EcoLuxe Lounge was Jared Simms, a Los Angeles based musician, model and tattoo artist. He sat with TV’s Chase Masterson, who was hosting our celebrity interview lounge that day, and spoke about some of the things that he has seen regarding addiction. “Addiction, it’s everywhere. It’s all around me, especially being in Hollywood,” Jared told Chase. “I’ve never had an addiction problem, but my mother has, my father has and some of my best friends. It’s very hard, but I try to help them through it as much as I possibly can. When they are looking for help, I do my best to support them in any way that I possibly can, give them the right contacts or the right guidance to get the help that they need. That’s really all that I can do for them is to be a positive person in their life.” It is this same idea of offering as much support as we possibly can to our patients that drives the specialists in our extensive Aftercare Department. For up to a full year after the graduate leaves the Choices Recovery treatment facility, our Aftercare Department offers guidance and assistance in finding local support groups, sober living arrangements, job placement or even just a simple phone call to see how things are going. This is just another way that we fulfill our commitment to helping our patients with every step that they take on the path toward leading a healthier and more productive life, free from the bonds of addiction to drugs or alcohol.
