Mindfulness meditation can free us from the negative emotions that hold us prisoner, thereby helping us overcome addictions. One of the first steps in dealing with addiction is to discover the emotional cause of it, whether it is fear, depression, anxiety, or pessimism. Many times these unwholesome thoughts and beliefs come from what I call the ‘wanting mind’.
Drug abuse knows no bounds – it wreaks havoc in the lives of both substance abusers and their families, leaving broken minds, souls and hearts in its wake. A supportive natural modality, known as Acudetox, is available to release sufferers from the grips of their addiction.
Addictive behaviour has become one of the most critical socio-cultural problems of our time affecting children as much as adults. Never before has a civilisation been affected by addictive tendencies as is happening today, and never has addiction affected children as much as it is doing so today.
Substance and alcohol abuse have a highly destructive effect on both the abuser and his/her close friends and family. Addiction, however, does not have to ruin lives indefinitely – there are steps that can be taken to recovery.
