Are you tired of letting drugs run your life? Are you trying to find a way to overcome drug addiction? Have you failed miserably at past attempts to stay clean after residential treatment only to end in a relapse time after time? If you have answered yes to these questions then you are in the right place because I am going to share with you how I stopped using heroin and overcame drug addiction. First thing that is necessary is to surrender that you have tried every way in the book to get clean only to fail. We must admit that we can no longer use drugs successfully and we need to admit this to our higher power and others that we need help. Once this is done help is available. We need to also admit that we have been beaten down and then we can start to pick our selves up and put our life back together. How do I do that you may be thinking well here's how; I am going to suggest that if you want to stop using drugs that you go to long term drug rehab. I would look for one that is somewhat close to where I live.

If you can't find a long term drug rehab center in your area I would recommend that you relocate to wherever you find the one you like. Keep in mind here that when I say long term I am referring to 6 months to 2 years. You may be saying wow that's to long. I would say to you is it really? How many years have you been using?

One really can not put a time limit on their recovery after all as addicts we will be recovering the rest of our life. If you decide to go to long term drug rehab here are a few things you will need to be prepared for. One if you drink or use any drugs you will be kicked out. Where I was at they drug tested us regularly. Next thing is we were required to work or go to school. I chose to go to school. We were also required to attend 90 meetings in 90 days, attend group therapy at our residence, and have individual therapy once a week.

If you think you can handle this you may be ready. Like I said I went back to school after being out more than 30 years. I thought I was too old and on my first day of class I was so uncomfortable that I almost left. I felt out of place because the instructor and I were the oldest people there. I felt like I was not smart enough. I did stay and I also started to get more comfortable. When I got my grades and was placed on the deans list. I then knew that I could do it and I am about to get my bachelors degree. I think that a lot of others out there can do it too.
