Holiday Time: Addiction doesn’t take a holiday
Addiction is cunning, baffling and powerful, it doesn’t rest just because the holiday season is here. We at Always Hope addiction treatment facility realize this and are available to help before, during and after the holiday festivities.
Many people believe that the holiday season is an improper or inappropriate time to go to treatment. Excuses are made and addicts are enabled to continue their downward spiral during this festive time of year.
“It just wouldn’t be Christmas or New Years without….”
“It’s not so bad we will get through the holidays first.”

The best gift any family could receive is their loved one taking the first step towards dealing with their addiction and coming back healthy and happy. The alternative is a very stressful holiday season and possibly the addicts last. Drugs, alcohol, and suicide may take an addicts life at any time and this unfortunately could be their last Christmas.
Truth is the holidays may be the best time to reclaim their lives from the grip of addiction. It is supposed to be a time of happiness and joy, but can quickly turn to dysfunction, stress, shame and fear. There may be no better place for a struggling addict to be at this time of year than the safe environment of an addiction treatment facility.
Here at Always Hope we will be celebrating the holidays a little different than usual since it is our first Christmas and New Years in the Dominican Republic. Why not join us to begin your path to recovery and enjoy the Caribbean paradise that surrounds us. If you or someone you know needs help please contact us. We are here to talk or provide assistance as needed during this joyous time of year.
