Reason 1: You can’t stop any time you want.
Sometimes willpower is not enough to break away from addiction. What people may not realize is that the longer you use drugs, the more your brain changes. These chemical changes in your brain can lead to your strong cravings for drugs. So you can’t simply say “I’m not going to do drugs anymore” and that’s it. Even if you do have a strong desire to kick the habit, your brain is going to fight you on it because it now relies on drugs to work. Let’s face it a big reason you can’t stop is the pain and fear of withdrawal. Our detox treatment is easy and comfortable. You can start today!
Reason 2: You can do something about your addiction.
Addiction is a disease of the brain, but this doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about it. Just like any other disease, there are interventions to help treat addiction. Going to detox and then drug and alcohol rehab is the way to treat the disease of addiction. Stepping Stone specializes in chemical dependency treatment. We help you learn how to put this disease in remission. There are ways to fight the disease and help you live a healthy life in recovery. We can show you how.
Reason 3: Rehab works, no matter your level of addiction.
A lot of people don’t seek drug treatment until something catastrophic has happened or when their lives are falling apart. But the truth is that you can start recovery at any point in your addiction. You don’t have to wait for something terrible to happen to decide to kick the habit.
The fact is that the longer you abuse drugs, the stronger the addiction becomes and the harder it will be for you to treat it.
Everyone is different and will go about seeking treatment at different times, but the longer you wait, the harder it will be.
Reason 4: Rehab works, regardless of your motivation.
It’s great if you want to go to rehab, but there are times when people don’t have a choice. Rehab is sometimes court-ordered or your family and friends intervene or your job may force you to go. This doesn’t mean that rehab won’t work for you. If you are forced to go to drug rehab, you may start seeing clearly after the drugs are out of your system. Even if you are resistant, the things you learn in rehab may start breaking down the walls you built around yourself.
Reason 5: Rehab works if you stop asking ‘what if?’
Recovery is something you will always have to work on. So even if you relapsed after getting treatment for drug addiction, it doesn’t mean that the treatment failed or that you are a failure. When relapse occurs, it may mean that you got off track. Going back to rehab can help you get back on track. Going to a different rehab that has a different treatment program and approach can help you stay sober.
Addiction is a complicated disease and getting sober is hard work. If you can get past these misconceptions and attitudes, you can be successful.
