Search For Assets: How Concierge Addiction Treatment Can Help You

2020 has been a rough year; one of the positive action steps that we can take to flip that switch is to recognize our many character assets. One of the many benefits of working with an addiction specialist like Dr. Harry and doing concierge recovery treatment is that we get to invest in our commitment to sobriety and mental health. Dr. Harry L. Haroutunian is also called “Dr. Harry,” as a term of endearment by his colleagues and many patients over the years. Dr. Harry and the team at Harry Haroutunian, MD addiction treatment services are committed to creating physician-driven unique and effective solutions for families and individuals afflicted by the disease of addiction. Our concierge medicine provides the best clinical team, evidence-based addiction treatment directives, and uncompromising principles to achieve long-term recovery.

Although many of us developed clever methods of surviving in life, such as denial or secrecy, it’s possible that certain defects of character are traits that we no longer need.  Once we have the support of concierge medicine and addiction treatment with someone like Dr. Harry, we start to learn that our old methods of coping do more harm than good. Those things that allowed us to function in nearly impossible situations are now obstacles to furthering our growth.  It’s been said that in recovery for addiction we discover that defects of character are simply assets that have lost proportion. For example, a genuine desire to help a loved one could become exaggerated into a desperate need to fix that person. It’s all about awareness and self-discovery, as with everything else. Instead of condemning ourselves we can become aware of a character defect and acknowledge our growth, recognizing the characteristics that once allowed us to survive are no longer necessary. One of the many actions we can take in addiction recovery work with Dr. Harry is to raise awareness of certain character defects so that we can become entirely ready to have them removed.

With Dr. Harry’s help, we can take action in thoughtful therapy to discover to what degree character defects and assets are involved in our lives. With concierge addiction treatment we can learn to practice the principle of self-acceptance and recognize that there is no such thing as perfection, just that we are willing to change and renewing our commitment to grow. It’s spiritual growth that we are working on. Applying the principle of willingness means that we are willing to act differently. It doesn’t mean we always will, but we can keep the focus on today.  

The Search For Character Assets: Addiction Treatment With Dr. Harry

When being active in a program of recovery we get to do an inventory or balance sheet, much like a company or business does, listing liabilities as well as assets. This inventory of sorts shows examples of assets and defects and helps us to make a realistic and rational evaluation of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors both positive and negative. Working therapeutically in addiction treatment is not about guilt and shame, but serves as a purpose to evaluate where our attitudes and actions, or decisions were realistic, helpful, rational, or not. It doesn’t serve anyone to focus solely on “character defects” without taking time to investigate character assets as well. There are assets in all of our characteristics and personality traits that we can all focus on to improve the quality of our recovery and our lives such as:

  • Appreciation
  • Awareness
  • Caring
  • Collaborating
  • Curiosity
  • Honesty
  • Humor
  • Integrity
  • Resilience
  • Spirituality
  • Willingness
