Delray Beach, Florida (PRWEB) October 08, 2013

"Treatment works. Even if it doesn’t work perfectly," states Spiritual River’s Infographic, published to inform struggling addicts and recent recovering addicts in fear of a relapse and seeking recurrent treatments for alcohol abuse. In this bold and colorful image, Spiritual River (http://www.spiritualriver.com) illustrates a realistic approach to alcohol recovery, encouraging treatment in a rehabilitation facility to achieve sobriety. No matter how long it takes.

Spiritual River’s infographic explains that most rehabilitation programs implement 12-step-programs, like Alcoholics Anonymous, which claim a positive success rate for recovery, but not without its stipulations. People must "apply themselves" by retaining their attendance at meetings with diligence to fully commit to staying clean and sober.

But still people walk in and out of rehab. While rehab centers sees many newcomers walk through their doors, the majority of people re-enter rehab in search of other approaches so as to not face another relapse. What most people don’t realize is that returning to rehab is nothing to be ashamed of; it may be a part of the recovery process. Relapse is always possible, but as long as people take action and seek treatment when it happens, they will be one step closer to full recovery.

This infographic points out a significant hole in the expectations that 12-step-programs has for its attendees. It backs up studies on the effectiveness of 12-step-programs, showing that only 5% of people sustain sobriety after only a year of the program. This infographic backs up the belief that most people may need more than just a 12-step-program and a short stint in rehab to stay clean and free from addiction. In time, people will recover, and the longer they stay clean, the lower the rate in relapse. The infographic smartly points out that rehabilitation centers are meant to be available for when people need treatment.

Spiritual River, addiction help and treatment website, advocates for seeking treatment with the ultimate goal of sobriety, regardless of how many trips to rehab are needed. Spiritual River is lead by blogs and articles from a former addict about his personal experiences with alcohol abuse as well as suggestions for how to get clean. Its website provides a reader-friendly approach to recovery. Spiritual River understands that alcohol addiction treatment is a journey. The recovery process may not be easy, and may take some time, but the end result is worth the money spent on rehab.
