For those dealing with addiction that have finally admitted to themselves that they have a problem and that they need help, congratulations. This is a big step in your road to recovery. Many people don’t get where you are. While it should be applauded that you admitted it, now you must do something about it. That means that you must do what is right and get yourself to rehab. This means that you will have to make a decision on the kind of facility you want to go to.
The first thing you will want to determine is if you are willing to go to a place that is voluntary in involuntary. Many opt for the voluntary treatment centers. That means that you are agreeing to be a part of the treatment and can leave anytime you want. For many this works because it allows them to feel as if they are not trapped. It’s can be a very rewarding experience. This will allow you to check out if you are no longer interested in staying there.
The other type of facility will not allow you to leave. There you have to deal with a much stricter staff. It’s a bit of the tough love idea. There are no easy roads and the staff will not allow you to leave until the treatment is over. This might be the right place for you but you have to make that decision on your own.
The important thing to remember is that you are getting help and it’s the first big step. Just think about what facility is best for you and you’ll be great.
