Addiction can be a gruesome and controlling problem within ones life. Sometimes taking a step back and focusing our emotions into one channel is a calming form of venting that is beneficial. The release of stressful and painful emotions can lead to a better understanding of the feelings themselves. One way to release emotional tension is through the writting & reading of poetry. Two authors, Mark Langford and Dawn Reif understand the concept of letting emotions flow onto paper. Writing in general is a great technique to understand and release feelings and desires within an individual undergoing drug and rehab treatment.

Poem Written by Mark Langford:
I thought I found the answer when I found drink and drugs, it took away the pain it took away the dark. I never felt alone I had a friend for life one that would not argue and cause me trouble and strife.
