At Omega Recovery, we view addiction as a self-medicating symptom of some other underlying distress. That underlying distress can be different for each person: childhood trauma, psychiatric imbalance, physical pain, toxic relationships, existential crisis, personality disorders, unresolved bereavement, internalized shame, etc.
For each person, those issues can come together to form a unique “perfect storm” of active addiction. But meaningful recovery and drug rehab is not just detoxing the person from the substances or the addictive behavior; it’s understanding and then treating the issues that led to the self-medication. It’s also helping the struggling addict develop a better sense of Self and develop the tools to live life in a more healthy and meaningful way.
