Entering drug rehab means admitting that you need help with your substance abuse and that you were unable to stop using on your own. While many people enter treatment willingly, some do so only to get their loved ones off their back about their drug or alcohol use. Whether the program participant has entered the program willingly or not, they will probably struggle at one time or another about remaining in treatment. There will be many hurdles and obstacles to overcome that challenge even the most devoted program participant. One of the key times a program participant may become upset and want to leave is during the withdrawal process. Withdrawal is often physically uncomfortable and the drug cravings, drug using dreams and emotional discomfort is exceptionally difficult to get through. However, once this phase of treatment has passed the program participant often begins to feel much better and slowly embarks on the process of learning to live a drug-free lifestyle.
