Addiction to drugs and alcohol is one of the most pressing issues facing the country right now. Already, countless families have been ripped apart by the dangers and the effects of addiction. Fortunately, the stigma surrounding these mental health issues has largely faded and there has been a significant increase in the number of resources to help people and families who are in need. This has given hope to countless people across the country suffering from drug and alcohol addiction who previously might not have known where to turn. Now, even those who are on government insurance assistance plans, such as Medicaid, have access to drug and alcohol rehabilitation treatment that they so desperately need.
What is Relapse?
When someone who has struggled with substance abuse has achieved some period of sobriety and then returned to active use, that is relapse. While going back out does happen, it doesn’t happen to everyone, and people who stay sober tend to do the same things. We have some tips for avoiding relapse.
Most people like to help other people, but when it comes to addiction, sometimes help isn’t always appropriate. Here some ways you may inadvertently be enabling addictive behaviors and keeping a loved one from going down a path of recovery.
Moving from active addiction to successful recovery is a tough process that requires maximum support from experts and family members. Recovering addicts often need proper inspiration to empower them during difficult moments and give them hope for the future. At Renaissance Ranch Ogden, we encourage positivity because it instills confidence in recovering addicts and helps them complete the recovery process.
In the modern world, we happily have a better understanding of how to treat addictions in various ways than we used to. Most people think of the more common ones: to keep addicts away from drugs, set achievable recovery goals, and give them proper advice and medication during the recovery process, but what recovering addicts really value is the amount of love and support you offer them.
At Renaissance Ranch Ogden, we offer outpatient treatment services to the addicts and restore lost hope to their relatives and friends. Our objective is to have a drug-free, family-friendly community. We offer comprehensive assessments, drug addiction recovery programs, and family-focused therapy to help family members and addicts walk the road to recovery together.

Below is a list of a few helpful inspirational quotes for recovering addicts that we have put together, but there are plenty more out there. We offer a little extra interpretation to help readers understand why we feel inspired and encouraged by these quotes and how they relate to the recovery process in particular.
Everyone has heard of celebrities checking into rehab facilities or overdosing on prescription pain medications prescribed by their doctors. But what some may not know is that, from the years of 2000-2014, the number of prescription drug overdoses in the state of Utah has increased by a staggering 400%. According to the Utah Department of Health, from the years of 2012-2014, at least 24 people died every month from prescription related drug overdoses.
What is Spirituality?
When entering recovery, spirituality may not be the first thing many people thinks of. It is, however, a fundamental part of the process of overcoming addiction. Spirituality can be an important but sometimes confusing concept for individuals entering a recovery program. Spirituality is often confused with religiousness. Organized religions, by definition are “a set of beliefs…usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.” Spirituality, on the other hand, is an individual’s search for something larger than themselves and a connection to the world around them. It is a desire to achieve a larger perspective about our lives and discover our true purpose. During recovery, patients need to reconnect with the spiritual aspects of their lives. Often, this is something that is lost during addiction. This loss also disconnects individuals from the people in their lives. The staff at Renaissance Ranch Ogden understand the importance of this aspect of recovery and help gently guide clients to rediscover this part of their being.
