It’s no secret that drug and alcohol abuse is a serious issue. However, it’s also no secret that everyone has different and often conflicting priorities – work, family, and friends always seem more important than recovery. It may never seem like the “right time” to seek help, but it will always be the right time to heal from substance abuse.
Why Get Treatment?
First: life with addiction is not easy. For those who struggle, it can feel like a battle without a way out. Going to a rehabilitation center can seem like the end of a normal life and the beginning of one where a struggle becomes an identity. It can be hard to admit the need for recovery.
Second, the outcome for untreated abuse is serious. Normal life often doesn’t continue. Addiction and abuse impacts not only the sufferer but those around them as well. It can result in fractured relationships with loved ones, financial hardship, loss of employment, and depression as well as physical injury, disability, or death.
More fatalities, illnesses, and disabilities arise from substance abuse than from any other treatable condition.
Third, although those struggling with abuse may try to quit alone, it can prove difficult if not impossible to do so. Repeated failures can make recovery seem even more unlikely, discouraging sufferers and their loved ones from seeking help or believing that treatment could make a difference.
Fourth, substance abuse and addiction are fully treatable. Yet, according to national statistics, only a very small portion of those who need treatment ever seek it.
Finally, there will never be a “right time” to seek treatment, but there IS a right time to recover. And that time is now.
Why Choose a California Rehabilitation Center?
A Rehabilitation Center in California can provide the perfect environment for recovery from substance abuse. It provides many advantages over recovery outside the center, such as:
• Consistent help and support from professionals
• A neutral environment free of distraction
• Support for transition to life outside the center
• Personalized care
• Proven success rate
• Preventative training for relapse
• Connections with others who share similar struggles
Unlike with self-monitored recovery, a Rehabilitation Center in California is able to provide a structure for success with the help of licensed professionals and patients working together to foster lifelong recovery from substance abuse.
Professionals who are trained properly can give new insight into both the abuse cycle and coping methods for relapse. They can help connect patients with common experiences, and shed light on the path to recovery.
Personalized attention is essential to patients’ recovery journeys. A Rehabilitation Center in California can help those suffering from combined psychiatric conditions and addictions by setting individualized goals and creating an environment conducive to their personal success.
Those who have struggled with substance abuse need the kind of specialized treatment that a Rehabilitation Center can provide in order to take control of their lives and their own destinies.
A Rehabilitation Center in California can assist recovering patients in discovering new lives conducive with sobriety, and help them accept that recovery is the key to a full life free from substance abuse.
Life doesn’t end with a rehabilitative treatment; it begins with it.
Recovery: A Range of Options
We recognize that there are many approaches to treatment for addiction, and many different people who suffer from addiction. Thus, we feel it is important to offer a full range of recovery programs, including:
• Support for co-morbid addictions
Within these, it is important that the individual is able to re-discover themselves without their addiction. For example, family therapy sessions can connect the personal journey of recovery to the construction of a healthier, addiction-free lifestyle.
The incorporation of other activities into life at a Rehabilitation Center in California offers the chance to engage in a fresh start in life without addiction. 12-step programs provide a way to self-evaluate and track recovery process while being supported by qualified and caring staff dedicated to helping people find freedom from substance abuses.
A key difference between other programs and a Rehabilitation Center is that a Rehabilitation Center can provide a wide range of options for continued recovery as well as support during relapse. A patient is always free to seek treatment that is appropriate to where they are in their personal journey to recovery. A Rehabilitation Center in California can provide ongoing, adaptable treatment options.
