Addiction and abuse often go hand-in-hand, whether because the person with the addiction is abusing others or because the person has an addiction in part because of abuse they have suffered or are suffering. For most people, the term “abuse” brings to mind images of physical confrontations or, at a minimum, angry shouting. However, as we explain to people at our addiction rehab in Sacramento, there is another form of abuse that is often referred to as “quiet abuse.” And, it can be every bit as damaging as other types.
What is Quiet Abuse?
Quiet abuse can occur in many ways. And because it isn’t physical in nature, it can be difficult to see that someone is being victimized.

Addictions are conditions that can be all consuming. They consume your money. They consume your relationships. And they consume your time… lots and lots of time. While you are battling an addiction, you tend to become unaware of how much of every day is devoted to getting, using, and being incapacitated by drugs.
When you start to make progress in your recovery and are no longer using, it can be surprising how much extra time you have on your hands. For many recovering addicts at our Sacramento recovery center, it can feel like too much time and cause a sense of boredom and restlessness. And those feelings can put you at risk of relapse if you don’t address them. Read more from this blog. http://bit.ly/2pYGhDb
