What is addiction?

Addiction is not a problem - it is a symptom. Addiction is an attempt to solve a human life problem.

Addiction can manifest in temporary pleasure and repeated relief behaviour; the beholder craves and cannot resist or give up despite long-term negative consequences.

Addiction is an individual's solution to escape, relieve and soothe pain, anxiety, stress, loneliness or trauma.

You cannot punish pain out of people.

You cannot shame or bully people into recovery.

People have to feel safe, heard, witnessed, validated and nurtured at every stage of the journey. However, Refocus is not a “soft” approach.

Refocus educates and empowers individuals to regain control over choices, using coping strategies to make more informed, healthier decisions with better outcomes. Connecting to a therapeutic community with peer identification is a significant component.

It is a course of self-discovery to walk a new path, to see why historical choices and actions have led to a state of chaos and unmanageability. It is a proven human approach to seeing life through a new lens to choose a different direction.

what we do 08

Addiction Rehab

Due to societal pressures, Marijuana can be one of the hardest substances to give up. The increasing social acceptance of Marijuana contributes to this in the same way it contributes to alcoholics not wanting to quit.
