You realize that your substance abuse habits have gotten worse but are they bad enough to warrant attending addiction rehab? Isn’t rehab only for people with really bad addiction issues? Isn’t it only for people who are living on the streets, don’t have jobs, and never talk to their families?
You’d be surprised to learn that millions of people are probably asking themselves these same questions every day. In fact, some 24 million people in the United States today desperately need treatment for substance abuse problems. Unfortunately, only a fraction of them actually seeks it out.
The truth is there is no specific group of people who need rehab. Anyone who is abusing drugs or alcohol could benefit from rehab. What you need to do is focus on yourself.
You can do something to stop yourself from becoming one of these individuals who don’t seek help even though they need it. All you need to do is heed the warning signs and know when it’s time to seek professional help for your substance abuse at an addiction rehab center.
Signs You May Need Addiction Rehab
Here are some telltale signs that you should be considering addiction rehab as soon as possible:
- Friends or family members have approached you about your substance abuse habits.
- When you stop using your drug of choice, you experience drug withdrawal symptoms, such as irritability, insomnia, headaches, nausea and vomiting, stomach cramps, sweating, shaking, and more.
- You’ve lied to those around you about your drug use habits or drinking.
- You’ve tried to quit before but haven’t been able to last long.
- Because of your drug or alcohol use, you’ve lost your place at work, your career has suffered, or you’ve been kicked out of or punished at school.
- You’ve gotten in trouble with the law because of your drug or alcohol use.
- While under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you’ve harmed yourself or others.
- You’ve received test results or had your doctor tell you that you have health issues caused by your alcohol or drug use.
- You’ve operated a motor vehicle while high or drunk.
