Be happy. Be healthy. Be alive.
Āyurveda believes that addiction to alcohol or drugs is created due to an imbalance of their constitution that the individual believes is being addressed through the use of an outside stimulus, when in fact these substances are simply furthering these imbalances. The goal of āyurveda is to address these imbalances and to give the individual the tools to handle stressors without the use of drugs or alcohol. Addiction and alcoholism is not only a physical imbalance of an individual constitution, but a psychological one as well. When a person stops the use of drugs or alcohol abruptly they will usually experience withdrawal symptoms, and in certain cases they can be life threatening. Āyurveda is not a substitution or replacement for medical attention or specialized treatment programs, such as rehabilitation programs or 12-step recovery. It can be used in addition to a treatment plan, and as a supplement to life long recovery (such as the 12-steps of Alcoholics Anonymous or it's sister programs, originally laid out by Bill Wilson).
