You thought you had a handle on your addiction. You were just having some fun with your friends, experimenting with something that you never tried before. You didn’t expect it to give you such a rush. You never thought it would be something that would take over your life. It’s the only thing on your mind now. The source of your addiction has replaced your job. It’s burned all your bridges when it comes to people who care about you. It’s destroying your health. Your body and mind no longer belong to you. They belong to a substance that is toxic to you. You feel like you’ve hit rock bottom.
When you hit rock bottom, you’re at the lowest point you have ever been in your life. You may have been in a terrible accident. You could have been arrested. You might wake up in a hospital bed only to discover you overdosed. The doctors told you that you were inches away from death. This is the point in your journey when you feel like there is no way out. If you don’t get help, you’re headed down a road with no exit sign. It’s time to start climbing your way out of the pit.
Addiction Recovery is within Your Reach
Hitting rock bottom may seem like a curse. In reality, it is a blessing. It forces you to look beyond your own abilities to become sober once again. You’ll be forced to get help as you deal with whatever troubles have crashed into you at this difficult time. A judge may be telling you to seek treatment or face time in jail. Family and friends may do an intervention, advising you that you only have one choice right now. You need to let recovery professionals help you.
An addiction recovery program can be tailored to fit whatever you need. The first step will be to sit down with a counselor for your initial consultation. At this time, medical professionals will:
- Evaluate your physical condition
- Look for any other conditions that could play a role in your addiction
- Discuss your history, including any other family members who suffer from addiction
- Determine if you need to go through detox
- Choose the right type of program for you
Addiction Treatment is not the Same for Everyone
Your treatment plan will be unique from the plan for your neighbor down the road. An inpatient plan may be recommended for you to give you optimal levels of support. Your stay could last 21 days, 30, days, 60 days, or 90 days. Insurance coverage will also be a factor as you consider the costs of treatment. Outpatient treatment is another option. Detox is an initial stage of treatment that is a must as all toxins are released from your body. Living in an inpatient facility will make it much easier to break away from the source of your addiction. You’ll also be surrounded by others who have the same goals as you.
Counseling services will be provided in a one-on-one basis. You’ll have opportunities to open up about your situation, understand what led to the path you are on now, and what you can do to avoid it when you complete your treatment program. Group meetings are common, helping you to bond with others who face the same obstacles. Family and friends can take part in counseling sessions to help them cope with your addiction. They’ll also be provided with guidance on what to do to pave the way to success. Once you leave your treatment program, you can consider going home, staying with family, or living in a sober living home for 30 to 90 days to help you transition from treatment to normal life.
