Are You Ready For Rehab? Some Questions That May Help You Decide
You know you have a substance use problem. Maybe there was a legal intervention involving drugs. Maybe your family intervened and confronted you about a drinking problem. Or maybe you’re just tired of it all and you know you’ve lost control. You know you have a problem, now you’re asking yourself, “Am I ready for addiction rehab?”
The good news is that knowing you have a problem and admitting it is the first step towards recovery. And the success rate of staying sober is higher when someone checks his or herself into a rehab center as opposed to being forced into treatment. But there are phases in this process and that is okay – remember that. One of the most important phases is the transition from awareness of the problem to actually knowing that action is needed. As you’re thinking about your situation and the implications that seeking treatment could have on your life, take a moment to ask yourself these questions:
- Does the thought of treatment give you hope?
- Do you want help, and not just because your friends or family think you do?
- Are you ready to do the work treatment takes?
- Are substances preventing you from accomplishing your goals in life?
- Are you ready to be brutally honest with yourself, family, and others?
- Do you feel like you want to quit, but don’t know how?
- Are you fully ready to deal with the trauma and pain from your past life?
- Are you having a hard time emotionally without using drugs or alcohol?
- Is your health declining because of drug or alcohol use?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may be ready, or at least open, for addiction rehabilitation. But to know for sure, you need to talk to a treatment counselor. It may seem that your addiction has taken control of your life, but you are still in control and this doesn’t have to be your story.
