Drug Addicted Lullaby, A Story For You
Ohh, ohh, ohh, drug addiction.
I bet you were thinking I was going to start writing some lullaby lyrics about drug addiction. Drug addiction added to my infliction. Something poetic and rhyming like that. Not quite though.
I dont want to sing for you. I want to tell you a story.
Let me tell you a story about drug addiction. A true story. Which means this was a real moment in time. Incase you were wondering what “true” story means. Its not fabricated, its not made up in my mind, its not fiction. Its fact, its a true story. A true story of drug addiction. I wish it could be as sweet as a lullaby your mom used to sing you to sleep at night, but drug addiction doesnt usually consist of a whole lot of things that give you sweet dreams.
My drug addiction brought me to a place that looked alot like this. Picture a girl of about 21 sitting in a crack house, on dirty bedroom floor in her underwear hoping every next hit would stop her heart. Sweating, twitching, shaking, full of fear, terror and delusion. Picture that same girl with eyes that have no light in them. Picture a girl being asked to leave that place and choosing to stay instead. My drug addiction lied to me, deluded my mind, and almost killed me. My drug addiction came in the form of cocaine and a needle. It came in the form of little rainbow colored bags of dope. It came with the promise of peace and the lie that it would somehow last.
Drug addiction for me was my solution for the longest time and asking me to leave that solution was like asking a mother to leave her child. I know that sounds like an extreme example but it is so true. Terrifyingly true. Drug addiction started off as something so pleasant. It was that perfect puzzle piece that fit with me so I could fit in with the rest of the world. That can only last for so long though when you are in a drug addiction. The puzzle piece starts to become deformed and warped. It doesnt fit anymore.
So you get a chance to step out of your delusion and find another puzzle piece that you already have. It was specially designed for you and you had it all along.
I am grateful for my drug addiction today. It brought me to a place I would describe as hell but it also brought me to the place where I have found a heaven on earth. Drug addiction was my biggest curse and my most beautiful blessing. Drug addiction allowed me to realize that I had been searching for an answer and when I realized my drug abuse was not the answer anymore I searched out another answer. The other answer being a power greater than myself, fellowship, treatment, and a 12-step program. This answer has brought upon me the greatest gifts this life has to offer.
Drug addiction had me in a homeless shelter 9 months ago, it had me on a hospital bed a year and a half ago, it had me at 90 pounds, scarred, scared, and wanting to die. Today, today is different. Today drug addiction has allowed me to persevere, to hang on, to find the willingness to change, to be honest with myself and to connect with a God of my own understanding. Drug addiction has become my past and a magnificent part of my present. It is a gift in my journey on the way to finding the greatest peace. That great peace that I speak of is a wholeness of my being. Its also described in that I want nothing, I dont already have. I can sit in complete contentment with the world around me. I can take a deep breath and not feel surrounded by chaos. I can be Rhea Nicole Rosier an addict and alcoholic and smile about it.
Thats my story for the day. I hope you enjoyed it.

Alcohol Addiction Needs A Spiritual Solution
Alcohol addiction is a foe that you can’t defeat alone. No human power can save you from alcohol addiction. You can’t save yourself from your alcohol addiction. You can’t control your alcohol addiction.
So how do you recover from an alcohol addiction? If all those things listed above hold true how do you become a recovered alcoholic or addict?
The statistics for recovery are bleak. I think it is something like 1 out of 10 people will recover from alcohol addiction. If this holds true then most of us would not make it. Luckily this statistic is warped in the sense that it doesn’t take into account a higher power. It also does not factor in our willingness to get away from our alcohol addiction or the force of human spirit. Realize I say human spirit not human will.
Our situation seems to be a hopeless one. It seems to be, while we are out drinking and using, a one way street straight to hell. This needn’t be the case even when we are suffering the terrors of alcohol addiction. The statistics don’t have to apply and the hopeless, powerlessness doesn’t have to hold you hostage. Alcohol addiction is a disease that can be treated. Alcohol addiction in the end once you have recovered can become one of the greatest blessings in your life.
Recovering from alcohol addiction is more than possible with a reliance on God. I have hesitated to say it. I have decided I won’t anymore. I know how I recovered from my alcohol addiction and I am going to share it with you.
The way you recover from alcohol addiction doesn’t have to be through treatment or rehab, or anything of the sort. The way you recover from alcohol addiction is you find a spiritual experience. You open lines of communication with something bigger than yourself. You work a spiritual program, whatever that is for you. No human power can keep us sober-we are powerless. Alcohol addiction is our master for however long we continue to drink. As soon as we make a decision to turn our lives over to something I call God, alcohol addiction starts to fade. Sometimes it happens rapidly, sometimes it takes a little bit of time. Either way it is guaranteed if you take the action with a spiritual program and live with the presence of a God you don’t have to drink again. I know this worked for me.
Don’t get me wrong treatment and rehab gave me a lot of tools I needed to live a wonderful life, I use them every day. A higher power gave me what I needed to live in peace within myself instead of looking outwardly for it. Yes, this blog is my opinion but more importantly this blog today is my experience. This is how I recovered. A spiritual program of action was my solution to my alcohol addiction. I can now say with confidence that I am a recovered alcoholic no longer recovering.
Alcohol addiction can be treated, treated with a spiritual solution. This solution does not just allow you to stop drinking it also allows you to start living on a whole different level of thought and experience.

It’s easy to write about rehab centers when you are living in the recovery capital of the United States of America. Who knew that a place like this even existed? I know before I came to this area and saw all the rehab centers I had no idea that a place like this was even a realistic possibility. Then again sobriety didn’t seem like a realistic possibility for me either.
The decision to get sober and find a rehab center is not an easy one. It takes a certain amount of willingness to take some action. It takes an honest look at you and your addiction that you may not be ready to face but you will because you can. It also takes some open mindedness to realize that you have a lot to learn and that you may not know it all. Rehab centers are ideal for the movement into recovery. Rehab centers can allow you to find some space between the last drink or drug and the normal lifestyle you’re used to living. It can give you distance to find a little bit more honesty, open mindedness, and willingness so instead of a shot of liquor you can get a shot at long term sobriety.
There are rehab centers on the corners of miracles everywhere you look here. Thats what rehab centers can allow you to find. A miracle, in your own life, in your own being, in your own time, in your own recovery. The miracle is sobriety, one day at a time. Rehab centers strive to perfect a program personal to you and what your needs are. The main objective being to give you all the tools possible to help you manage your life and your new sober state. In a short amount of time if your eyes are open and ears perked towards something positive you can achieve sobriety and a life beyond your wildest dreams at these rehab centers.
Rehab centers or rehabilitation centers for drugs and alcohol create something that had been missing from our lives as alcoholics and addicts. That is hope. It allows us to see that its not the end of the road, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Rehab centers start us on a journey that begins us walking in the sunlight of the spirit. A place that we can not even begin to imagine that is better than the best we had been living.

“Short Term Inpatient Rehabilitation Does Not Mean Short Term Sobriety”
Short term inpatient rehabilitation usually lasts 28-30 days. Short term inpatient rehabilitation can be especially beneficial for those who have been doing an outpatient treatment program and find themselves needing a little extra care. It gives you the ability to get out of a toxic environment for a short period time. Giving you exactly what you need to come out a few weeks later with some extra tools, clean time etc. Short term inpatient rehabilitation helps you to maintain a long lasting sobriety.
Most of the time someone such as myself that is an addict or alcoholic needs a long term treatment center in order to find recovery. This is because of the years of using that need to be reversed by a few months of clean time and learning life skills again. Short term inpatient rehabilitation is a rapid more intense way of getting what you can out of thirty days that normally would take months. For instance if you have a job or family you need to get back to, short term inpatient rehabilitation is probably perfect for you. If you really want sobriety there is no reason that short term inpatient rehabilitation can’t allow you to achieve lifelong happiness.
If you asked me, I would always recommend the longer stay at rehabilitation center. Short term inpatient rehabilitation although can achieve the same results but you have to be willing to listen, open minded, and accepting of what you are being taught. That is not always easy if you aren’t ready to get clean. If you are though any amount of treatment including short term inpatient rehabilitation is ideal.
Entering any rehabilitation center is scary and takes coming out of denial about your alcoholism and addiction. Short term inpatient rehabilitation may be one of the first steps you take towards regaining your life back. Those first step towards sanity, towards the light are always the hardest but are the ones that matter most. Short term inpatient rehabilitation gives you the opportunity you may have been missing with outpatient treatment programs or trying to do it on your own. That opportunity being time away from drugs in alcohol in a safe and structured environment. Short term inpatient rehabilitation does not mean short term sobriety. It means a shorter stay packed with all the essentials you will need to get sober and stay sober for the rest of your life.
If you or someone you know is suffering from the pain of addiction and/or alcoholism please do not hesitate to call: 877-711-HOPE(4763) or go to www.palmpartners.com for more
If you are fortunate enough to go a rehabilitation center or are thinking about going, definitely consider a short term inpatient rehabilitation. You don’t have to make a lifelong commitment in order to go to treatment but you do need to make a lifetime commitment to get sober.
