Deciding that you are ready to go to rehab to get help for a drug or alcohol addiction is a big step. Often, admitting to yourself that you have a problem is the most difficult part of the process. Denial is a big part of the disease of addiction.
Many people affected by the disease have said at one point or another that they either have it under control or that they can stop using or drinking any time they want to, on their own. By the time they reach the point where they have a full-blown addiction, the disease is controlling them and they no longer have a choice about whether they will use or not.
Finding A Rehab Facility – Inpatient Or Outpatient Treatment?
Once you have made the triumphant decision to get help, the next step in the process is to find the right rehab facility for your needs and goals. You can choose from two general treatment models: inpatient and outpatient.
Inpatient treatment programs house clients and offer access to counselors and staff on a 24/7 basis. This type of program is best for those who have very severe addictions, an unstable or unsafe home life, or are able to be away from work/family/school for an extended period of time.
Outpatient drug and alcohol treatment, such as our Dunes Outpatient Program, offers a more flexible individualized treatment that includes individual and group therapy, as well as other types of holistic treatment options offered at inpatient programs. The advantage to clients who choose this model is that they are able to return home every day to continue with work/school/home life. The outpatient process is still effective and confidential.
Telling Your Loved Ones
Once you decide to get help for an addiction, making your family and friends aware of your plans will help them know what to expect with your actions and to help hold you accountable. You will also need support to stay committed to your goal of long-term sobriety. If you get cold feet from the time you agree to start treatment to the day you go to the facility, they can offer encouragement for you to continue with your important goal.
