Rehabilitation from addiction may be a long term task. No matter what one is dependent on, they can be hooked for life, perhaps even past the precious time they’ve already accomplished sobriety. Active addiction to illegal drugs, alcohol, wagering, unnecessary eating, and in many cases purchasing may be the period of time when the addict is actively chasing a lifestyle of dangerous manners, before people disclose that they have problems and commence a course for recovery. Active habit can happen if the recovering addict experiences a relapse and comes back to the prior way of living of abuse. A support program for the recovering abuser will likely be useful in preventing returning to active drug addiction.
