Has Your Addiction Gone Too Far?


What began as taking more than the recommend dose of painkillers has turned into routine pill popping.

Drinking after a hard week at work turned into drinking every day after work. It can be hard to always determine when your addiction has gone too far, but it is important to recognize when you have a problem.

How to Know You Addiction Went Too Far

As a faith-based drug and alcohol treatment center, we see people in all different stages of addiction. While it is never too late to turn your life around, getting help sooner rather than later is always better. Our faith-based recovery program wants to help you recognize when your addiction has crossed the line so that you can get help immediately.

Legal and financial issues. One telltale sign that your addiction has gone too far is when you start to experience serious issues regarding money or the law. Supporting your addiction can be an expensive venture, especially when that addiction-fueled risky behavior leads to legal issues. It is estimated that the cost of substance abuse in the United States from crime, health care, and lost work productivity is equivalent to $740 billion annually. [1] If you have gotten charged with driving while intoxicated, public intoxication, or anything else related to your addiction, you need to get help immediately.

You are alone. Look around you. Have you become distant from the people closest to you? Have the relationships with your friends and family become strained? Has your relationship with God weakened? Do you spend most of your time by yourself? If you answered “yes” to these questions, then you may have a problem. Because of the secretive and deceitful nature of addiction, addicts will often push their loved one away. You may refuse to admit that you have a problem and alienate those closest to you in the process.

Experiencing withdrawal symptoms. If you have gone a day or two without drinking and you start to shake and feel nauseous, your drinking has gone too far, and you are probably in serious need of our alcohol addiction treatment in Pompano Beach. We can help you safely detox from your addiction.

A complete loss of faith. Have you stopped going to church? Do you no longer participate in your Bible studies group? When was the last time you prayed? It is common for addiction to not only consume a person’s life but also to shake your faith. Our Christian drug rehab could be the faith-based treatment track that you need to get your life back when your addiction has gone too far.

Does this sound like you? Our Christian rehab can help you get your life back on course.
