Treatment vs. Failure
Just a thought for the day. When a person goes into drug treatment, gets clean, but then has a relapse, its generally considered by most people to be a treatment failure. But if I person has high blood pressure, starts taking an anti hypertensive, gets their pressure under control, but then stops taking their meds and has high blood yet pressure again, the treatment was still considered a success, the failure was with the person. Point being, I think may people expect to be cured by going into rehab and fail to realize that drug treatment is a life long process of treatment, just like blood pressure. If you stop taking your “medicine”, you are going to relapse.
