The secret of what has caused and is keeping your addiction alive and active, making it seemingly impossible for you to quit, is within you.
Learning the techniques of relapse recovery is important; learning a new philosophy of life and how to live it is important; discovering the triggers that lead to relapse and being in treatment with other people who are at Passages for the same purpose as you is important, but, if we don’t find out which of the Four Causes created and is keeping your addiction alive and heal it, relapse is pretty much certain; we will both fail. And make no mistake, when you fail, we fail. We want to hear your story. We need to hear your story; the real one; and you need to tell it. We’ll help you look for it. Looking for it is number one on the list of things we do best. Number two is to help you process what we find so it stops keeping your addiction alive. Come to us prepared to let your guard down and talk to your therapists openly with complete protection for your confidentiality. Together, we can end your addiction. Our therapists are experts in leading you to the secret you’re holding on to. You’re not holding onto it deliberately, but because it’s painful you’ve buried it.
You are not to blame for your addiction, for what you’re going through; Your addiction is being caused by one or more of the Four Causes.
Don’t come to Passages and go home with your secret still locked inside of you.
Most of our clients have forgotten their original cause because it’s too painful, too shameful, too traumatic, too embarrassing. The relief they experience when the cause is remembered and healed is one of the best feelings in the world. That’s the moment you will know you’ve escaped your addiction. We have seen thousands of clients experience that moment.
If you haven’t already read the Four Causes Page, do it now. If you’ve already read it, read it again. Make sure you’ve checked off all the examples that apply to you. Then, click on the “Evaluation” button so we can tell you what we will do to help you be free from them. That’s the start. You may not know the original cause; that’s usually the case, but it’s the start that leads to the finish, to the real source; the cause. We will be there with you, all the way. We can win together, but you hold the key, the secret. So, talk to us…
