The Saving Grace of Drug Rehab
You would think fame and fortune would be enough to make a person happy. That’s not the case for many celebrities.
In an article at NYDailynews.com, former Disney star, Demi Lovato, talks about her struggle with drugs, food and inflicting harm on herself. She describes how she would try to create the high she would feel while performing when she was off stage. Drugs were the only thing that could come close to painting that perfect picture she wanted to feel all the time.
Realizing how dangerous her actions had become, the now 19-year-old checked herself into drug rehab. She was treated for drug addiction, an eating disorder and cutting.
So many times we hear about how these vices help to fill a void that is being felt by the addicted from the world around them. It seems as if they find themselves living in a dream world of sorts through the abuse of whatever substance it is that ails them.
They try to recreate a feeling over and over and often times end up overdosing before they are ever able to find any type of saving grace through drug rehab or whatever treatment is necessary for their type of abuse.
So how do family and friends reach out to those who are struggling? How can they save themselves if they have not had that defining moment to know they have a problem?
This is where treatment is so vital to their wellbeing, but unless they recognize the behavior on their own, loved ones may be fighting a losing battle and sitting by watching someone destroy their life is a hard pill to swallow.
Often the only thing those people can do is be there for the addicted person, support them in their life without drugs and do their best to eventually get them the help they so desperately need.
