Scholastic and Professional Help at AspenRidge Recovery
We are committed to helping our clients return to work or school after completing recovery.
Living with active alcoholism or addiction becomes an all-encompassing, full-time job. The process of making money to buy your substance of choice, buying that substance, using that substance, and repeating takes up most of the day. As your substance abuse develops into substance dependence, many of your responsibilities are cast to the side.
Alcohol Recovery Information
Drug Addiction in Universities
As addiction consumes your life, basic self-care such as showering or brushing your teeth may no longer be an everyday occurrence. You skip out on engagements with friends and spend increasing amounts of time alone. As long as you can drink or get high, your needs are satisfied.
Whether or not you were taught responsibility from a young age does not matter; addiction and alcoholism will take that from you.
Grades in school begin to slip or work performance starts to disintegrate at the beginning. Eventually you may just stop showing up at all, to class or to work.
Drugs and alcohol are powerful substances that, if addiction and alcoholism is left to its devices, will eventually destroy everything around you. You may lose your job or drop out of school. Once you get sober and realize that you've eliminated your opportunities, it may seem as though you will never get back on your feet.
However, with scholastic and professional assistance offered at AspenRidge Recovery, getting back to life as you once knew it is not such an impossible feat. Counselors and staff help to teach life skills necessary to function in society again. Things you may have forgotten or simply no longer wanted to do become requirements in treatment. You will re-learn responsibility.
You will receive the opportunity to return to the life you left behind with a fresh chance to start over.
