As we all know, traditional rehab does not work, and any positive effects are temporary. People with addictions join, seeking a cure, and all they receive is a hefty bill. What is the point of paying for an expensive retreat that leaves you in the same, if not worse mindset when you leave?
What is worse is they actually created a name for the system. It's called the "Florida shuffle." Owners of treatment centers know that they will continually have patients return for relapses, until they end up in a body bag.
Ok, then how do we truly cure addictions? It's not going out in a meadow to pet horses, or alternative drugs to transition out of the harmful ones.
Where does addiction come from? The mind. So that is where the solution lies as well.
The only way to truly understand, influence, and change the mind is through lucid dreaming. Becoming self aware in your dreams literally gives you the ability to have a conversation with your subconscious.
In your dream, with the proper plan, you can find your addiction source, understand it, come to terms with it, and ultimately, control it.
We need to remember that addiction is a mental disorder. The only cure is in the mind.
