It may seem easier right now to just ignore your problems.
To shove them deep down inside until it feels like your chest might burst. Because it feels easier and less messy than having to admit to yourself and others that you are struggling.
We understand the idea of sitting down with your loved ones and telling them you are struggling with substance abuse may seem horrible.
Like you would do anything to keep them from knowing.
But you can’t just ignore your problem.
Now more than ever a person suffering from a drug or alcohol dependency isn’t seen as a criminal or someone to be looked down on. Instead, they are seen as someone that needs help. Like how you need help.
You may be ready to seek treatment for your dependency, but you may not be ready to let others know and to help you.
We understand the temptation to keep quiet and try to work through the recovery process alone. But it doesn’t work that way, you need support.
The simple fact is that the treatments are either dangerous to even attempt alone or can’t be done without the help of a trained professional.
The first treatment you would require is a detox, which is the process of ridding your body of all drugs and alcohol so you can avoid cravings while you’re working through the rest of your treatments.
While a detox sounds easy enough to do alone, it can be incredibly dangerous without the support of a fully trained medical professional.
This is because a detox involves you working through the withdrawal symptoms which can easily prove too much for your body to handle.
If experienced alone you could very easily find yourself in hospital.
The withdrawal symptoms include:
Detox should never even be attempted outside of the safety of a rehab centre where you can be monitored 24 hours a day by a fully trained medical professional.
Who can administer medication should the symptoms prove too much for your body to handle.
By attempting to detox alone you are putting yourself needlessly at risk.
So let’s say you decide to skip this step and move on to the rest of your treatment alone. Well, the rest of your treatment would involve therapy and to complete it, you will need the help of a therapist.
You would also be dealing with the distraction of cravings as detox is designed to give you a fresh start so you can actually focus on your therapy sessions.
In rehab, you are provided with regular therapy sessions led by a fully trained professional therapist.
In most cases, these sessions will be group sessions where you will get a chance to interact with others staying at the centre at the time.
However, in some cases, you may be offered private sessions.
Therapy is important as substance abuse doesn’t just happen.
It is often a result of a deeper mental health problem that needs to be addressed. Your unhealthy coping mechanisms need to be replaced if you ever hope to achieve long term recovery.
Rehab is really the best place for you. It has the facilities and the staff to best aid in your recovery.
Now that you have accepted you can’t do this alone you may be considering finding a rehab centre.
While every rehab centre has different facilities that can cater for different needs it’s important to remember they all have their best interest at heart. They just want to help you work towards recovery.
There are plenty of top quality rehab centres within the Eastwood area you could choose from.
So many in fact the task of narrowing it down may seem daunting.
When the decision to get treatment within a rehab centre has been made it is important to act quickly. The sooner you are starting down the path to long term recovery the better.
All this stress and worry can make the already scary thought of checking yourself into rehab all the more daunting.
