The holiday season is a very stressful time for some people. When we are talking about people that suffer from alcoholism and drug addiction the holidays can produce very bad feelings that accelerate use. As a drug rehab in Pennsylvania, we see an increase of admissions to our facilities during and after Christmas and New Years. Why is this? Many times the reason is because the addict may be ready to give up and surrender to their disease. They see how hurt their families are, how irresponsible their behavior has been, and their lives spiraling out of control.
For families that have suffered from a loved ones addiction, although it can be difficult, when someone gives up that is the first step in recovery. It can be tough to be dealing with this when it should be a happy time of year. The good news is that if the addict/alcoholic stays surrendered, the holidays that come in the future can be drastically different.
