At Synergistic, you’ll find a team of people in recovery who want to give back. Having been blessed with a second chance that recovery has given us, we feel indebted. We understand the struggles your loved one goes through on a level only available to those of us who have been there. We know what it’s like. Rarely is the decision to quit drinking, or using, made lightly. In fact, the self-revelation that we can no longer control our drinking or using is usually brought on by outside forces such as jail, hospitalization, or worse, death. Most of us come kicking and screaming. An active alcoholic or addict is an unlovely creature. Late-stage substance abuse is normally accompanied by shame, fear, anger, bewilderment, and hopelessness. We behave erratically because we are no longer truly sane. What other explanation is there for the things we do? And typically, things don’t improve on their own. At least, not until the discomfort of staying the same becomes greater than the fear of change.
We have performed interventions in the past in which the addict or alcoholic has shared their plans for suicide, or we had to call 911 because a medical intervention needed to come first due to overdose, accidental or intentional. This is a deadly disease and those who still suffer are no longer behaving rationally. In fact, their decisions can have unthinkable consequences. They need help. They are no longer acting in their own best interests. You likely know this and have probably tried to help countless times, but it hasn’t worked. Not for lack of love or trying, you just don’t know how. We do!
We have found a better way to avoid worsening consequences. Typically the bottom for alcoholics or addicts is ugly. Homelessness, divorce, jail, hospitalization, or death. These are often required for the discomfort to get bad enough for us to be willing to change. But why wait until there’s an accident, or someone gets hurt, sick, arrested, or overdoses? Left untreated, these are inevitable. If you are reading this, things have gotten bad. Without help it won’t go away, it’ll only get worse. How much worse? Who knows.
Let us help. No matter what roadblocks may be in the way, we can help facilitate a bottom before it gets worse. Please don’t just take our word for it. We encourage you to check out our reviews and see what other families experienced while working with Synergistic. They all felt helpless and hopeless before they called us. We can chart a path for your entire family and your loved one to avoid these really negative consequences, or minimize the already existing ones. It’s not an exaggeration to say this is life or death, we’ve seen it, too many times. Time is of the essence. We are eager to help and we know how!
Please let us.
