In many cases when an addiction overtakes a person’s life, his or her life’s purpose is lost in the consumption of the addiction. The priority of the person is to get the next available “fix” regardless of the cost associated with it. Relationships are placed in jeopardy, occupations and careers are jeopardized, and financial resources are lost or spent.
Recovery is many times a multi-step process:
- It starts with addressing the addiction or dependence. A person begins with recovery activity aimed at eliminating the dependence on the substance of which he/she is experiencing. This is not necessarily easy task, and typically takes time to conquer.
- During the recovery process, a person may begin to evaluate (or re-evaluate) their life purpose. Life goals may be questioned and reconsidered or renewed. Perceptions and objectives are viewed in a newly, refreshed perspective. This is the process of defining the individual’s purpose and goals in life.
- In various cases a person may have a spiritual awakening during the recovery and purpose & goals periods. It may be encouraging to re-evaluate the direction of his/her career pursuit. At this time it may be beneficial to look at the option of re-establishing a current career, or to look at different directions for career interests.
The First 3 Steps:
- Considering/motivated/actively pursuing recovery
