The addiction disease has been riddling the country more than ever these days. With everything going on including the pandemic, addiction treatment and therapy is needed more than ever now. Staying home can be extremely tough, especially when dealing with addiction. It’s hard to cope with urges and stresses in life as it is, but during this time, everything is heightened to a large degree.
Loneliness Drives Substance Abuse
Living alone in this world can be tough for many people. During the pandemic, many young people have been quarantined alone due to many different circumstances. People dealing with addiction in quarantine while living alone struggle even more with sobriety, and that is why we have to be there for everyone. All who are dealing with loneliness are susceptible to substance abuse, which can then lead to addiction.
Our mission at Cypress Lakes Lodge is to not leave these people out to dry. All human beings can deal with loneliness, and that is why we are here to help you get through your struggles with addiction.
Support Can Be Vital
The support from family members and friends is extremely vital to one’s treatment. No one can get through addiction alone. The support from others is what helps people deal with issues because not being alone is essential to knowing that you’re not alone.
What Can We Do to Help You?
Cypress Lakes Lodge is not only an addiction treatment center. We are a family looking to get people back on their feet to live a happy and healthy life. We understand that during this time it can be the most difficult, but that does not mean we aren’t dedicated to our mission to help every single person who is dealing with addiction and loneliness.
According to the Harvard Politics, they state, “In any case, individual organizations’ efforts to adjust as best they can to the new global situation are laudable, but only a concentrated national effort can truly slow down the revolving door between addiction and loneliness. Yet across the nation, millions still subscribe to ingrained myths that portray addiction as a “moral failing” instead of the brain disorder that it unquestionably is.”
A Better Future for People Struggling with Addiction
The pandemic has taught us quite a few things. For everyone, it has taught us to take a step back and look at what’s most important in our life, which is family and friends. We should always take a break of our daily lives and focus on what matters most. It has also brought to light the big problem with addiction. We need each other more than ever. The pandemic crippled group sessions, as well as supportive communities dealing with anxiety, depression, and of course, addiction.
What can we see for the future?
Well, we can happily say that our mission is still strong here in Texas. We plan to move forward and adjust to reality. The reality of addiction is not going to go away, which means we have to push extra hard to help those in need.
