New A Forever Recovery Blog Post Asks: Which Addiction is the Hardest to Overcome?
Date:9/3/2014

Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) September 04, 2014

In its latest blog post, A Forever Recovery, an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in, is asking: which addiction is the most difficult to overcome?

“All addictions are difficult and achieving sobriety is never easy,” commented A Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “However, some addictions are harder to conquer than others – including some that may come as a surprise.”

According to A Forever Recovery, addictions that are widely considered to be the most difficult to overcome are:

  • Alcohol. There are several reasons why alcohol makes the dubious list, including: widespread availability, relatively low price, and integration into everyday life and society. Withdrawal symptoms can include: headache, lack of appetite, nervousness, fever, insomnia, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, mood swings, anxiety, depression, heart palpitations, and Delirium Tremens (DTs).
  • Benzodiazepines (a.k.a. benzos, Valium, Xanax, Klonopin, Ativan, Librium, Versed, Halcion, Tranxene, Serax, etc.). These anti-anxiety drugs were originally meant to replace barbiturates as a “less addictive” option; however, many people grow addicted to them with fatal consequences. Withdrawal symptoms can include: difficulty concentrating, muscle pain and stiffness, tremors, irritability, anxiety, panic attacks, dry retching, nausea, psychosis, heart palpitations, seizures and coma.
  • Methadone. Created as a synthetic opiate used primarily in the treatment of addiction to opiates such as morphine or heroin, many people who use methadone over a period of time struggle severely to break free. Withdrawal symptoms can include: fever symptoms (e.g. like cold sweats and shivering), agitation, anxiety, depression, abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, muscle and bone aches, insomnia, rapid heartbeat, high blood pressure.

“Regardless of the substance involved, addicts need to understand that quitting cold turkey is almost always the wrong move – in fact, it can worsen the problem and lead to hospitalization and, in some tragic cases, death,” added Per Wickstrom. “That’s why it’s essential to get the compassionate and qualified help them need from a rehab facility that has been accredited, licensed and certified.”

Cognitive approaches have excellent success, whereas others thrive within a more holistic approach. A Forever Recovery allows clients to choose from a wide range of recovery methodologies, coupled with Moral Recognition Therapy (MRT), to achieve success rates unmatched in the addiction treatment industry. The bottom line is that there is no single therapeutic approach to recovery that works for everyone… until now.
