Recovery from addiction to drugs or alcohol is a life-long, uphill battle, but you can win it. One of the best ways to increase your chances of victory is to obtain compassionate help from professionals who truly understand what you’re going through. For many people, getting treatment at a rehab facility is an important first step.
Watch for the Signs
Many people who are trapped in the cycle of addiction mistakenly believe that they can stop using anytime they want to. And yet they continue in spite of the fact that their lives are spinning out of control. Take a careful look at your own situation for the following warning signs that your use has turned into full-blown addiction:
- Your finances and/or relationships are suffering because of your drug use
- You have become isolated from people and activities you once loved
- Much of your time is spent either using or thinking about obtaining your drug of choice
- You experience physical and psychological symptoms such as nausea, shakiness, anxiety and irritability when you try to stop using
- You have broken the law or taken advantage of those you love to get your drug of choice
A good rehab facility can help you get to the root causes of your addiction and give you the tools you need to truly heal and recover.
Qualities of a Good Rehab Facility
The first few months of recovery are extremely challenging, so much so that many people become discouraged and fall back into their lifestyle of drug abuse. One of the best ways to prevent that from happening is to find a rehab facility that is compatible with your needs and personality.
For instance, a program that focuses on recovery through outdoor adventure and survival skills may be perfect for some people but absolutely against the grain for others. Take some time to think about the setting that could best help you to heal: urban or rural? Should it have a spiritual focus? Do you respond to strict rules and sternness or to compassion and empathy? Do you want a facility that focuses on luxuries, or do you respond better to environments where simplicity is the order of the day? Once you answer these questions, you’ll be in a better position to find a rehab facility that fits your needs.
