“Not why the addiction but why the pain.”
― Gabor Maté
You may think of alcohol, prescription painkillers or another street drug as your “drug of choice.” But at SunCloud, we consider it your “drug of no choice” or “drug of addiction.” As addiction takes over, your ability to actually make choices is swiftly taken away. With the drug in command, you may feel totally powerless to regain control of your life. In helping you start on a path to wellness, we won’t ask, “Why the addiction?” Instead, we’ll encourage you to ask yourself, “Why the pain?”
In our experience, alcoholism is driven by deeper causes that typically involve physical, spiritual or emotional pain. By dealing with the underlying pain, we will help you exchange unhealthy addictive behaviors for healthier ones – leading to a balanced and abundant life.
At SunCloud Health, we approach addiction treatment in a holistic, integrated and medically informed way. We meet you where you are. As one wise teacher has said, “Only when compassion is present will people allow themselves to see the truth.” We will help you learn to allow pain to be your teacher, so you can expand far beyond it rather than seeing pain as the enemy.
