When it comes to drug and alcohol addiction, it’s difficult to be detached and accept you have a problem. If substance abuse is causing negative effects in your life, it’s time to take a look and come to terms with the fact that you might have an addiction. Once you can accept that, you’re already on the path to recovery. The next step is to decide how to get sober.
Addicts die with more frequency than the rest of the population. In fact, people die all the time because of substance abuse. Going to rehab allows you to relearn how to be yourself again, practice honesty, and rebuild trust. Many rehab facilities also offer family counseling, which can further help heal the damage caused by addiction.
