Do I need drug addiction rehabilitation?

Many people falsely believe that it’s only for the patient to decide when and if they need drug addiction rehabilitation.  However, this has been proven to be untrue. The patient’s level of awareness is diminished because they’re addicted and you cannot wait for them to see the light before finding an appropriate treatment centre. Contact us for ways to begin adopting a different stance in relation to the drug or alcohol addicted person.

It’s most often the family that ends up choosing a drug addiction rehabilitation centre for the patient. It’s important to do your research, make an informed choice and keep an open mind.  Sometimes the denial that surrounds addiction is so strong, that even family members get sucked into the delusional that “things aren’t so bad” and we can all be quite unaware that we are being irrational at times.  If people close to you are suggesting that someone needs drug addiction rehabilitation for their habit then the chances are that they are seeing something you don’t.
The good news is that even if the person addicted to alcohol or other drugs is being forced to enter rehab it is still possible to have a successful treatment outcome.

If you’re finding that you need drugs just to feel normal then you might need drug addiction rehabilitation.  In other words if the drugs are no longer fun but if you stop using them you suffer from withdrawal symptoms then this is a sign that you might be addicted.  You should consult with an addictions counsellor about how best to detoxify and join a recovery program.
If you’re using ever increasing amounts of drugs but finding that you’re not getting the high anymore then this could be a sign of “tolerance” and another reason to consider drug addiction rehabilitation.  Tolerance occurs because your body learns how to cope with the presence of the toxins you are introducing to it and you keep needing to use more and more to get the same ‘high’.

Some people steal and lie to support their habit.  This is very hurtful to the people around them.  If you’re in trouble with the law, your work or your family then this could be a sign that your behaviour is changing because of your chemical dependency.  If they are suggesting that you consider drug addiction rehabilitation please contact one of out addictions rehab counsellors to discuss whether you have a problem.
