It’s the biggest step and question of an addict’s life- do I go to rehab? While it seems like a scary and insurmountable situation, recognizing the rehab could and should be in your future is the biggest first step you can take- and the second, is to act on it. But how do you know if rehab is right for you? And what steps do you take? We here at CASA Recovery want to help you in this process and help get you back on the right path to get your life back. Here are some steps to take if you think you might be ready to admit yourself to drug and/or alcohol rehab:
Your Day to Day Life has been Interrupted
Has your addiction begun dictating the way you live your life? Do you schedule work or social activities around when you can get your next fix? If so, your addiction is living your life, rather than you living your life. Recognizing your lack of control is the first step to regaining control.
You’ve Interrupted the Lives of those Around You
Has your drug or alcohol abuse negatively affected those around you- whether that be family, friends, roommates, or more? Have you angrily lashed out on people you don’t even know, because they maybe cut you off on the freeway or ignored you in a social setting? If you’ve realized that you are acting in a way that is negatively affecting those around you, now is the time to get rehab in motion. This is especially important to do before you make decisions that you can’t take back- like driving under the influence or blacking out and not knowing what actions you’ve made the night before.
Lying has Become Common in your Life
Do you lie to everyone around you, so they can’t identify your addiction or call you on your actions? It might have started as little lies here and there, but maybe it’s graduated to larger and more hurtful lies, cloaking your actions in a rouse of “being okay.” The act of lying is a way to build walls around you to keep you in the untrue reality of your addiction- rehab will help you find and live in the truth again.
