Once people are able to recognise that they have a problem with alcohol or drugs it is vital that they quit this behaviour as soon as possible.
There is help available for people in Andover who find themselves in this situation, but they will need to make use of these resources in order to benefit.
The dangers of delaying taking advantage of such help will include:
It is often claimed that in order for people to be able to break away from addiction they will need to hit rock bottom. This is a claim that has substance, but there is a great deal of misunderstanding about what rock bottom actually means.
It is important that those people in Andover who are dealing with an addiction have a realistic understanding of rock bottom so that they can get the help they need sooner rather than later.
It does not matter if the individual enters rehab after a high or low rock bottom – the experience can still be equally rewarding and important. The whole point of this facility is not so much to end the symptoms of addiction but to remove the causes of this behaviour.
This is vital because if the reasons why the individual turned to alcohol or drug abuse are still there, they will either relapse or turn to new maladaptive behaviours. The reason then for why a high rock bottom substance abuser might enter rehab is to prevent them from becoming a low rock bottom substance abuser.
Once the individual has passed through an alcohol or drug rehabilitation facility they will be in a great position to live a new and better life going forward. Of course, it will be up to the individual to make the most of their time in rehab. If they are diligent though, they will have all the tools they need for a new and better way of living.
Sobriety is not about returning to how things were before the substance abuse – it is about finding a new and far more satisfying way of life.
