Drug and Alcohol Treatment Myths Debunked

There are many myths about drug and alcohol treatment and the things that you can expect (or should not expect) to get out of treatment. If you are thinking that by getting help for a drug or alcohol addiction that once you are done with treatment you will magically be healed and won’t have to work at staying sober, think again! While treatment centers can help you to overcome many of the negative effects of addiction through counseling and therapy, you will still have to work at remaining sober long after you have completed a treatment program. Here’s a look at some additional myths about drug and alcohol treatment that you should be aware of.

Not Many People Go Into Drug or Alcohol Treatment

Do you think that you don’t know somebody who has received treatment for drug or alcohol addiction? If you think that you don’t need the help of a drug and alcohol treatment center because you’ve never known someone who has actually sought such help, think again! It’s likely that you know someone or even multiple people who have been in drug or alcohol treatment in the past. Don’t be afraid to get help because you think that you are the only person who is in need of treatment for addiction, you are not alone.

People Who Relapse Just Didn’t Try Hard Enough

Drug and Alcohol Treatment Programs

Drug and alcohol treatment can be the option you need to recover.

If you think that just because you relapse or you know someone who has relapsed that they did not try hard enough to remain sober after drug or alcohol addiction treatment, think again. It is estimated that nearly all addicts who are in recovery will relapse at least once in their lifetime and many more will relapse over and over again before finally making a full recovery from addiction. Your best bet if you relapse after you have completed a drug or alcohol addiction treatment program is to pick up where you left off and get back on the wagon as soon as possible.

I Don’t Need Treatment for Addiction Because I am a Functioning Alcoholic

If you think that as a functioning alcoholic then you can stop drinking whenever you want to, you are wrong. Functioning alcoholics need treatment for their addiction in order to recover. While you may think that since you hold a job, take care of your family and handle routine daily tasks that you don’t need help, cravings and dependence on alcohol is not always easy to get over. Alcohol treatment centers can help you find new ways of coping with daily stress and the situations that cause you to drink so that you no longer have to be a “functioning alcoholic” and you can be a sober individual.

If you or someone you know is addicted to drugs or alcohol and you have questions about treatment centers and the various programs that are offered in these facilities, contact Treatment Centers today for more information by calling 1-888-461-2155.
