The double meaning given here was not originally intended but on reflection maybe it is all worthwhile. Because there are readers out there, you may be one of them that need urgent help as soon as possible. The help that is needed urgently at this time is related to people who have serious difficulties copying with their addictions. Some of these addictions are life-threatening and has already played havoc with addicted people’s social, professional and family lives, as well as their financial well-being which also encompasses those placed in their care.
It is the young children who often bear the brunt of serious life-threatening addictions and diseases. The double meaning here expressly deals with two important fundamentals necessary for people faced with serious addictions. On the one hand, because of their now severe financial circumstances, they are now able to approach an online addiction treatment free of charge. And secondly, they can now do so in the comfort of knowing that no-one is going to be around to judge them. No-one needs to know what you are doing online late at night.
Not especially since you are really trying to help yourself, and at long last. You will never need to be afraid nor will you be offended once you have finally made contact with your online counselor. You must just bear in mind that the gentleman or lady that has volunteered his or her time with you has already been well trained to deal with your personal crisis. That person may not be able to touch you physically but at least know that he or she could do so emotionally. One of the fundamental skills that are taught to counselors is that of listening.
Good listen skills are required to get to the heart of the matter. And then when all is said, you can start preparing to dry your eyes, because soon the gentle words of wisdom and encouragement will lift you up. Of course, the problem of your severe addiction is not solved at that moment. A process is set in motion to put you in touch with a professional psychologist or psychiatrist, specializing in addictive behaviors and the materials that lead to substance abuse. Your counselor will be standing by at all times to help keep you patient.
Getting rid of a troubling addiction cannot be solved overnight, sometimes it even takes years. But at least you are being helped. That is a positive, surely. And will there be a return to black moments and black nights? Sure enough, you can be realistic to the possibilities. In fact, you will be taught what to do when you are facing a relapse back into bad behavior. You will be able to call your counselor in the middle of the night to put you back on the right track. It is all up to you, because you still have one empowering thing. You have the freedom to choose to be helped.
