Alcohol and Drug addiction prevents the spiritual, emotional and mental growth of an individual. For the addict, they literally stop wanting to learn or progress themselves on any level other than the one they are already on. This is why many Alcoholics and Drug addicts are emotionally stunted and are unable to control their emotions. Many addicts believe once they are a few months clean from Drugs or Alcohol they are cured. An addict is not cured just by not using Alcohol or Drugs. It is important to remember the Drinking and Drug using is only a symptom of an underlying issue within the addict. Total abstinence from Drugs and Alcohol takes a Spiritual and Mental awareness through healing and growth.
