There are Plenty of ways in which you can get help and support. That’s great news, because you’ll need it to get you through rehab more easily. That’s not to say that you can’t do it alone. You’re strong enough to handle it, and people have succeeded that way. However, if you have any support available to you through family and friends, take all of it that they will give. It’s easier when you have people to help you and to cheer you on. They are better at keeping you buoyed up than strangers are, and they can remind you that you’re a good person who made a mistake – not a bad person. Rehab is not punishment. It’s the start of a new life and a new way to get help and support for past mistakes and any future ones that you might make.
When you get support in rehab, you’re able to realize that you can get better. That leads you to see that you are a capable person, and that the addiction that you had in the past doesn’t have to be a part of your future. Often, rehab is not easy. There are physical and mental issues that you’ll have to get through, and they can be unpleasant. It’s all worth the end result, though, when you fully come to the realization that you can live a free, happy life that doesn’t involve an addiction that’s killing you and hurting the people you care about.
It’s good to know that those people are still standing by you, that they still believe in you, and that you can show them what you’re capable of doing by successfully completing rehab and staying clean. While there may be challenges in your life, you don’t have to let them overcome all of the good you can do for yourself and for others by remaining clean and healthy.
