Do I Need Help to Detox?

We often find that when someone is asking this question and similar questions, the answer is in the affirmative. You may have heard the cliche that “admitting you have a problem is the first step” but it’s a cliche for a reason. It truly is the first step and it’s one that is very difficult for many patients to take.

The problem is, someone who doesn’t admit that they have a problem is someone who will always have a problem. On the one hand, if they don’t admit it then they will never seek help. On the other hand, if they are referred to a specialist by a family member, they will be very difficult to treat and even if treatment is effective then they will likely relapse.

After all, one of the most common reasons for relapse is because the addict believes that one more dose won’t hurt, not after they have gone through detox. For someone who didn’t believe they had an issue in the first place, they are more likely to have those thoughts and to relapse as a result.

Addiction Treatment: What’s the First Step

The treatment will depend on the issue. The first thing a specialist will do will be to determine what caused the addiction in the first place. Not all substance abuse problems occur as a result of trauma, illness or other serious issues. Some of them result from simple boredom or a dissatisfaction with life. In any case, they will determine what the problem was and will make sure this is addressed.

That way, when they fix the addiction, the patient is not going back to the life they had before and during, and is instead going back to a new life. This is very important. Because if they feel like nothing else has changed then they may turn to the substance that they relied on for so long. After all, if their life and their mental health has not changed and the only thing that has changed is that they no longer have a substance to rely on to feel good, then it’s a matter of time before they let their cravings get the better of them.

From the perspective of an addict, the best thing you can do is to make sure you are well prepared and that you understand you addiction and the options that are available. That’s what this section will help with. We don’t offer the support ourselves. We don’t have rehab clinics or anything else of the sort. But we can help to inform and educate, while potentially pointing you in the right direction.
