The Benefits of Attending Rehab

It isn’t easy to get sober on your own. In fact is it highly recommended that this disease be treated in a professional setting.  It is difficult to manage addiction alone because in order to be successful, people need support. It is good to start with a clinically managed detox in a drug rehab center like Intervention Drug Rehab Association before moving to something like AA or NA once your treatment is complete. Here is are just three (out of many, many more) reasons why rehab is a great place to begin the path to recovery:


  1.       Going to rehab can save your life (like, literally). – Rehab not only helps to get you off your drug of choice, but you have trained medical professionals who can help you with the physical and psychological effects of withdrawals and addictions. By quitting you are also giving your body some relief, since substances can be equated to toxins, think of all the work your organs have to do to process them. There are many diseases associated with different addictions, and many of these are eventually fatal. So you’re really doing your body a favor by seeking help!


  1.      Going to rehab can help you to build a new network of positive people in your life who understand what you are going through (and you understand them as well). Often, negative friends can trigger a relapse, especially if they don’t want you to get better. Even people who do want you to get better can make it more difficult if they don’t understand what you are going through (some people’s addictions stem from past issues that have had continued psychological implications, and sometimes these are related to people who love and care about you). This means that it is important to have another positive network of people who can support though through the trials and tribulations, can remain a positive influence, and have coping methods that can help you. These can be lifelong friends.


  1.       Going to rehab can help you reach long term success in recovery. For some people, it is easy to quit for a period of time, but then they relapse. Recovery is a long road, and a difficult one at that. Rehab has the necessary supports in place that can help you to reach long term success in your recovery. This means there are people, professional and peers, who understand better than anyone else what you are going through, and are there to help you through it.
