The Liberation Place
Welcome to the interactive website designed by people in recovery to support people in recovery. Whether you are seeking support for a loved one, or you are an individual actively using substances, gambling, playing video games, watching pornography, or shopping excessively, the list is endless of those that can find what they are looking for right here at The Liberation Place
Addiction often drives a wedge right through the middle of a family unit, causing parents to argue, siblings to feel abandoned and leaves the loved one with the addiction feeling alienated and misunderstood. At The Liberation Place we strive to work within the family unit, collectively and individually, to reunite those that have separated and promote a healthy living environment that fosters respect and understanding for all. We do this while developing healthy boundaries within the home that offer peace and serenity where chaos once was.
Up until this point, the general consensus from most people in the field was, to achieve a successful sustainable recovery, it was necessary to remove the problem from the person and/or the environment. We were taught to do this by ignoring our thoughts and feelings, suppressing our emotions, and avoiding our triggers. While in the family it was often done in an authoritative manner, to show "tough love", and have the one with the "problem" evicted from the home.
For some families this is still a successful strategy to some degree, it leaves the individual with no choice but to follow the rules set out in the home or leave. While this can be an effective tactic, and can always be a consideration as a last resort, for many this is a disastrous journey into separation, anxiety, guilt, shame, and depression, that leaves all of those involved in a place of resentment, anger, and blame.
Likewise, those of us that deal with the addiction itself are usually told that we have to stop doing the things we are doing, we have to fight the thoughts and feelings we are experiencing, and most importantly, we are told we have to get rid of this "personality trait" we have that wants to escape. We are usually treated to a number of different tactical approaches that are designed make us stop what we are doing. However, they usually leave us filled with guilt, shame, and fear which are many of the the very reasons we cant stop using in the first place.
But what if there was a different way?
What if this way was available to you and it was a way that, with time, a desire to change, and lot’s of hard work, could avoid the conflict and chaos we experience, and allow peace of mind for you as an individual, and balance and cohesion for the family unit.
The Liberation Place offers you a way to make this happen, but not in the way you have been taught to try, and probably failed to do, before.
