Rehab 4 Addiction

There are a number of myths that addicts like to believe in because it makes it easier for them to refuse addiction help. Many of these misconceptions will be directed towards what happens when the individual chooses alcohol and drug treatment centres.

For the practising addict, this will be the ultimate sell-out, and so they are likely to view this as a negative step.

Even when the individual feels ready to quit they can continue to hold misconceptions about what happens in rehab. It is important that the individual has a realistic understanding of what this type of addiction treatment involves so that they do not just dismiss it out of hand – it could be the one thing that could really help them.

Here are just a few misconceptions that people living in Midlothian, and considering this type of help, might have with regard to drug and alcohol rehabs:

  • One criticism of these facilities is that there are examples of people who went through these programmes but later relapsed back to addiction. The reality is that this is not really the fault of the rehab as all this type of facility can do is offer the individual the tools they need to stay sober. It is always going to be up to the individual to make the best use of these tools
  • Another wrong idea about rehab that people may have is that it is like some type of prison. This ignores the fact that the individual will usually choose to enter this type of programme, and they agree to stick by the rules. Some of these facilities are of the same standard as 5-star hotels – those people in Midlothian who can afford to go private can choose this option
