Addiction can cause even the heartiest of individuals to waste to near nothing as it wreaks havoc on their body and mind. It is not easy to see addiction as something that can ever be stopped or corrected, and, particularly once it has ravaged an individual for a period of time, it may seem that there is a point of no return at which all attempts to help should cease. The good news is that this simply is not the case. In fact, it could not be more incorrect. Getting sober has no timeline or cut off date. It all depends on the individual’s disposition, and whether they are ready to take the plunge or not. Now, this in no way means that it is advisable to wait forever to seek treatment and help, as the quicker you seek recovery help, the greater the chance of mitigating any potentially dangerous issues or health concerns. However, for individuals (or concerned loved ones) that may be terrified that their opportunity to seek addiction treatment has passed them by, there is no need to worry! One of the biggest reasons most addiction treatment centers do not stress a timeline in which a person must receive treatment is because for the person suffering from addiction, any time that the addiction is cured is better than the alternative, which is no cure or treatment at all. Whether an individual has been an addict for two months or twenty years, there is no better time than the present to start fixing things in order for them to lead a fulfilling and happy rest of their life. Those that suffer from addiction seem to regularly forget that their life was not always one of addiction, and that an addiction does not define who they are, no matter how long they have been addicted. There is another road, and that is the road to sobriety. Even if it takes an individual several tries at recovery, each step takes them a bit closer to freedom. Another reason treatment is recommended at any stage of a victim’s journey is because starting the treatment process is the first step towards relieving what are more than likely massive mental, physical, emotional, and financial strains on the victim’s family. In foregoing help because you think it may be too late, those problems have no chance at getting any better. With recovery, the victim’s family members can start rebuilding as well.
