Alcohol rehab but not until ready

Most of us know someone or several people that we feel has a problem with either alcohol addiction or drug addiction. Most of the time we the friends or acquaintances can see the problem, but the individual(s) can not. Mostly they say “I do not have a problem” or “I can stop at anytime”. Those individuals have a serious problem with their addictions.

Many times some of these people can stop on their own mostly with the help of a friend or relative to be by their side at all times. Statistics show those individuals with these additions who attend meetings such as Alcoholics anonymous or some other alcohol rehab or drug detox and attend a residential drug rehab program are more likely to be able to change and better their situation than an individual doing it on their own. All this is fine and dandy, but if the individual has not reached the bottom where they have lost or about to loose everything maybe even go to jail and be willing to change these programs will in most cases not be effective.

If you know anyone who regularly goes out and drinks till buzzed and then drives home they may be in need of help. Although they may need it they can not be forced into these programs because they will not work until they are actually ready to change their desperate situation. For example: I know someone who has a problem with drinking so bad that the individual will spend every last dime they have in order to purchase alcohol. This person went to an alcohol rehab clinic but they are right back to where they started. Because this person was not ready to change they went right back to doing it again and to me it seems that it is even worse than before. This person really needs help but they are not yet ready to receive it. Maybe when the family is completely gone change will be wanted.

All in one park

Here in Dallas Fort Worth, where we live. There is a lot of amusement park entertainment you can visit to keep your children busy this summer.  As a mother of three active kids. I love to visit places where my kids can enjoy and learn new things. Since my kids love being outdoors, going to the different park is always in our top list.  In the summer, going to the waterpark is our past time. Just recently, we found a new park in our area, not too far from where we live.  The name of the park is Clayton W. Chandler Park which is located in Mansfield, TX.  My kids love this park because it has splash pad which runs from 10 am to 8pm in the summer for free! Their playground area has a mini obstacle which is great for kids ages 3-10. If you have a teenager who loves sports, they have 2 basketball half court, sand volleyball, tennis court, baseball field, skateboard plaza, 1/4 mile walking trail with fitness stations and a half-acre pond stocked for fishing.
