Sonshine Recovery Ministries takes a contemporary view of the disease of addiction—one that is shared by leading medical addiction researchers and clinicians. We view substance abuse as a chronic disease, not a choice. While suffering from this disorder is nothing to be ashamed of, bad feelings, frustration, anger, damaged relationships, and poor health can result from the symptoms of untreated addiction and its associated behaviors.
Learning the skills to effectively manage the disease of addiction is absolutely possible. Like any chronic condition, it must be managed throughout one’s life. This does not mean having to live life with limitations, however. On the contrary, we believe that learning to manage the condition of addiction and its associated disorders can help people improve their abilities to overcome the many other adversities they will encounter throughout life.

Addiction is not a singular event, but rather a progressive disease that worsens over time. It is indiscriminate and destroys the lives of all that follow its path. Residential treatment alone often yields only short-term sobriety and stabilization. Long-term recovery is achieved when there is abstinence from drugs and alcohol, abstinence from addictive behaviors, and recovery of physical, emotional and spiritual health. When recovery starts to feel as natural as a layer of skin, only then is it the healthy lifestyle that will sustain the individual well into the future.
The journey is not an easy one, but long-term recovery is possible.
