Getting Help for Yourself

Traveling for Treatment

Although it is not an option for everyone, research has shown that leaving your familiar environment improves your chance for lifelong recovery. It removes distractions and temptation to leave treatment early.

Leaving Work to go to Rehab

The Family and Medical Leave Act offers job protection for up to 12 weeks or more. Learn how you can take advantage of what this act offers employees who need time off work to deal with a substance abuse disorder.

Addiction as a Disease

Addiction isn’t a sign of a bad person who doesn’t care about life. It’s a mental health disease recognized by doctors all over the world.

Addiction Health Risks

Addiction results in a multitude of symptoms that manifest physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Combined, they threaten the overall health of an addicted person.

The Cause of Addiction

Getting to the heart of the addiction is key in overcoming it. Addiction is often rooted in another mental illness or trauma that was left untreated.

Finding Drug and Alcohol Rehab for Yourself

Just as you shouldn’t go about overcoming a major illness alone,  you shouldn’t approach addiction alone. Overcoming addiction requires a careful evaluation by a qualified medical professional, followed by an individually tailored program designed to heal the whole person, inside and out.

We can help you find the treatment you need. We can help you find an addiction treatment center that is well-equipped with evidence-based programs and comfortable facilities. This focus on the whole person enhances patients’ chances for long-term recovery.

Preparing Yourself for Treatment

The addicted brain protects its continuous supply of the substance(s) it has come to rely on to function. It does this by engulfing the addicted person in denial. There’s no doubt that someone preparing to enter treatment will have doubts and hesitations. Although this can make it difficult to enter treatment, remember what made you decide to enter treatment in the first place.

Next, evaluate each part of your life: work, home, friends, family, finances, et cetera. Tie up loose ends and spend time with your support system. Pack your bags, learn what you should take with you, and prepare for a life-changing experience. Also, learn what you should not take to rehab. Take care to leave things that could be triggers or distractions at home.

We're here to offer a hand up.

Admissions Process

The admissions process is different for each treatment center, but overall they are the same. Your admission sets a baseline for your recovery. Although the admissions process varies from program to program, we can give you an idea of what to expect. You’ll be physically and psychologically evaluated and asked for your medical history.
