Addiction almost always brings along financial issues that must be addressed. The recover process often involves more than healing the body and mind from the addiction. Often times the monetary situation of the addict will need to be addressed.
Overcoming the Debt from Addiction
Accept that the addiction did cause financial problems but at the same time refuse to let guilt set in because of those problems. You are unable to change the past but you can know that you are looking to make amends as you move forward.
Sit down with a financial adviser to get the full picture of your financial situation. The adviser can be someone that you trust or a professional. You will need some guidance to begin getting your finances back in order.
Let go of the things holding you back. The recovery process is about change. You will also need to make changes in how you spend and where you spend your money.
The recovery process will touch all areas of the life of an addict – from relationships to finances – because addiction touches all areas of life.
