Should you seek treatment for addiction? If substance abuse is making a negative impact on your life you are likely also experiencing a good amount of anxiety. It’s time to dig deeper and look inward. While it may be hard to tell if your addiction is bad enough that you should seek treatment but the reality is if you are asking yourself this question, you likely need help getting sober.
How to Help Yourself
If you find yourself experiencing any of the following you should speak with a treatment specialist if you:
Are experiencing other health problems as a result of substance abuse
Have driven a car with intoxicated
Want to quit but aren’t able to
Have heard concerns from friends and family members
Experience withdrawal when you stop using drugs or alcohol
Feel out of control in various aspects of your life
Experience a loss of interest
Recovery is different for everyone. While no one has the same path to living a life in recovery there are key things everyone considering treatment should know:
Be patient with yourself. Sobriety doesn’t happen overnight. It’s something you will work on every day. Forgive yourself, and let go of the past to focus on the future.
Explore your options. Find a program, whether inpatient or outpatient, that fits your personal needs and sets you up for success.
Understand the power of dual-diagnosis facilities. Programs that can help you work through the root cause of addiction help set you up for long-term success and sobriety.
Lean on friends and family. Loved ones are here to support you and play a big role in your sobriety. Don’t be afraid to open up the community around you.
Work through a clinical detox program. Detoxing in a supportive and safe environment with a medically assisted detox program will get you on the quickest path to recovery.
