May is #MentalHealthAwareness month. By talking about mental health issues and the consequences of not getting help, we want to remove the stigma surrounding mental health and make sure people know that it is normal and okay to get help.
One of the main challenges when helping people deal with mental illness or emotional trauma, is trying to get them to also see that these breaks in their mental health may contribute to or be the direct catalyst of an addiction issue. There is a long marathon of trying to get them to accept the help that they need. Prior to COVID19, we all were running a very long and arduous rat race. We may not have made time to engage our loved ones authentically. We may have missed signs of addiction such as lack of performance at work, distancing themselves from a friend, or symptoms of physical ailments due to their addiction. The denial that their addiction controls their life is not uncommon, but they can be steered in the right direction eventually.
That’s why I am sharing this resource with my readers. If you are struggling with addiction issues and you need help, SOBA Recovery can assist.
Opened in August 2013, SOBA TEXAS has helped hundreds of families, locally and beyond, battle the aftermath of addiction. SOBA Recovery is licensed through the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and accredited by The Joint Commission on Accreditation Healthcare Organization (JCAHO). Their mission is to save lives and unite people with their loved ones, while helping them regain the tools they need to live a sober and productive life.
SOBA Recovery is a place where there are #TexansHelpingTexans. They have a very simple admission process with addiction specialist on standby 24/7. Their direct admissions helpline is 866-547-6457 and their website is www.SOBARecovery.com. The #SOBAMentalHealth team are there for you when it feels like you have nowhere to go.
Again, as someone who has suffered and recovered, I implore you to get the help you need. Get help and get your peace of mind and freedom of your spirit back.
