NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. - Sept. 19, 2016 - PRLog -- Akua Mind and Body has just released a new article and video on Shame and how it can affect addicts in recovery. Merriam-Webster's Dictionary defines shame as "a painful emotion caused by consciousness of guilt, shortcoming, or impropriety." It is also defined as "a condition of humiliating disgrace or disrepute" in the same source. But any addict knows what it means; what it feels like.
People feel shame because they feel that they are bad, they feel guilty because they have done something bad. It is the difference between emotion and action. Addicts experience both and they either try to quit or become more mired in their addiction because of these feelings. A rehabilitation (rehab) program focuses on healing from the physical, emotional and social aspects of addiction. Within emotional healing, is overcoming the shame pattern that you have developed. At Akua, this is done through a shame resilience.
