Living life without the need for drugs or alcohol is why people enroll in a drug rehab center. People who are addicted to drugs or alcohol often require help to stop using. An addict may try many times to quit on their own to no avail. This is because addiction is a very difficult problem to recover from without help. It takes time and a lot of effort to learn how to live drug-free and change one's approach and outlook about life in general.
