Verbal abuse towards addicts

(1/1)

jenneii46:
Being talked down to and cursed at is not excepted in any situation. Why is it so excepted in rehab? I can not respect the advice of a professional who thinks thats the way to cure a addict. :-\

Lon:
NA is not rehab, nor do we have any affiliation with any other organization.


That being said: many addicts arrive in NA thinking they have all the answers - when in reality all they know how to do is use. If we are coming to NA seeking help, it pays dividends to listen to those who have walked the path of recovery before us. Actually listening to those with experience may save us from the mistakes they made and supply the guidance we need to ease our journey.


We need not like being told the truth for it to be the truth.
