08 Oct Is There Ever a Bad Time to Go to Drug Rehab?
The worst time to go into a drug rehab program is when you don’t want to commit to changing your life. If you feel like your friends, family and loved ones want you to go that is not enough of a reason to go. There are many different phases to getting sober. Step one is detox. Step two is arriving at your treatment center. If you are not willing to get clean, the chances of you staying with the program is slim to none. Something inside of you has to feel like you have had enough.
The best time to connect with your addiction is right now. Allow yourself to understand that getting treated is your responsibility. At first, you may wonder if you can make it through a 30 day program. That is only normal and natural. After that, you can decide for yourself what is going to work best for you. Some people need to experience an outpatient facility before they decide to go to an inpatient facility. Many people that choose an outpatient program do so because they don’t want to feel like they are being locked away for 30 days. In fact, most outpatient programs don’t take a person out of their environment. Therefore, people often go right back to what they were doing before because they never left their place of comfort to begin with.
Many treatment centers in the United States agree that the best place to get help for drug and alcohol addiction is outside of your home state. If you stay in your home state, you are going to remember all of the same things that you were used to doing. Hanging out with friends doing drugs, drinking and partying will also bring back memories.
Only go to rehab if you feel the need to change and want to change. Do it for yourself, family and loved ones. Get real with yourself and own up to getting sober.
