Ask Recovery Rob is a website for people in the addiction recovery community. Whether you are an addict, living with an addict, or know one, this is a safe place for you to ask for addiction advice and to connect with others.
Alcohol and Drug addiction doesn’t happen by accident. There are usually developmental life events that occur from birth (genetic) and in life (environmental) that tip the scales toward the addiction cycle. Often times a person may be born with a predisposition to addiction because their parent(s) may be an addict, and sometimes a person may live a harder than usual life, which might trigger substance abuse issues. These would be physical, psychological, or sexual abuse. In addition, there might be depression, anxiety,and or bi-polar issues to deal with and the person may have started using drugs and alcohol to self-medicate.
Whatever the issues are, Ask Recovery Rob is here to give advice as well as point you in the right direction for help.
