Step into the brave new world of recovery.

It’s easy for those unfamiliar with addiction to super-simplify and say things like, “Just grow up.” But as the science behind addiction advances, these sentiments of super-simplicity are being challenged. “The disease [of addiction] is about underlying neurology, not outward actions,” says Dr. Michael Miller of the American Society of Addiction Medicine.

Recovery starts with a radical overhaul of our thinking because we’re dealing with the epic reality of brain chemistry. And this initially requires a kind of “tearing away” from old thought patterns. Over time our brains and bodies begin to readjust to a normal balance known as homeostasis. 

Long after physical cravings go away, mental triggers linger because triggers have to do with thoughts inspired by brain chemistry and old neural pathways. In recovery, the brain is eventually “re-wired” to think normally, sans-substance.

But this takes work. It takes courage. It takes community. It takes behavioral changes. It takes steps. It takes time. Recovery isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s for those brave souls who get just a meager glimpse of hope and follow that glimpse over some seriously rugged brain-terrain in early recovery.

Once a danger to ourselves and others, we become heroes to ourselves and others. Those that oversimplify addiction cannot understand this language of bravery and heroism because they can’t know the reality of the struggle. But that’s okay. If you are going through the throes of early recovery you need this kind of encouragement — the kind that’s based in science and mingled with hope.
