Reasons Why People Might Not Seek Drug Rehab

Drug and Alcohol AddictionOut of millions of addicted or drug-dependent people, only about one in ten go to rehab each year. The rest of the people have their own reasons why they don’t find a rehab program.

The final result of addiction is either sobriety, prison or death. Once addiction sets in, drug cravings are so strong that most people need help to overcome their addiction. Even with a strong desire to quit, will power is not enough for most people to just quit. It takes an effective rehabilitation program to help them break free from their addiction.

But why do people not seek help?

Here are some common reasons why some people do not seek drug rehabilitation:

  • I don’t have health coverage and can’t afford private care.
  • I’m not ready to stop using drugs or alcohol.
  • I can handle this problem without treatment.
  • I don’t have transportation to get to treatment or it is inconvenient.
  • I don’t feel like I need treatment right now.
  • I don’t know where to go for treatment.
  • The neighbors or community might think less of me.
  • It might have a negative effect on my job.

Though these reasons might seem sensible, they are not reasons why a person should not get help. Breaking free from drug addiction far outweighs any excuse to not get help.

Addiction to drugs and alcohol contributes to or directly causes illness, disability, broken families, loss of productivity, crime and death. The destruction from drugs or alcohol spreads through families, businesses and our communities affecting individuals one way or the other.

Learning Life SkillsThe long-term Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab program helps those who become addicted to drugs or alcohol get their life back. Our program uses a safe and natural holistic approach. It starts with a drug-free withdrawal that helps individuals to get off drugs as painlessly as possible using nutritional supplements. The next step involves using a drug detoxification method to flush out drug residuals that can drive cravings. This is followed by life skills training courses that help individuals recovering from addiction learn how to take control of their life and handle the problems in life that may have driven them to use drugs in the first place. These life skills courses also help them learn how to obtain goals, choose friends more wisely and live a more stable, successful life without drugs. The end result? Approximately seven out of ten graduates report staying drug-free, staying out of trouble and returning to a productive life six months or more after they return home.

Remaining in treatment

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.

Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs understand how difficult the process of drug rehabilitation can be. This is why they have created many techniques to help their clients get through the desire to leave and ultimately make the choice to stay and work on achieving lasting sobriety. Many staff members are former clients who have completed the program. They are able to personally identify with program participants and address their feelings and compulsions very effectively.

Drugs and Alcohol were holding me back

My first course was very helpful, realizing that drugs and alcohol held me back from doing what I wanted to do and being happy. I am very happy I got to do this!

The first course in our Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab program is designed to help the program participant address the very basic and fundamental problems of all people (especially addicted persons). Clients gain the ability to confront, control and communicate with people and the world around them through a series of strategic exercises. Learning these life skills and adopting them as part of one’s day to day life is essential for the recovering person to have positive future interactions with others and handle difficult situations in life when they arise.
