How to prepare for treatment

Many who suffer from addiction may consider a drug treatment program, but will likely see it as much easier to postpone, or often second guess themselves and assume they are helpless against their habit.

Depending on the severity of someone’s addiction or their circumstances, there may not be much time for preparation. Whenever possible, it is important to get personal affairs in order.  Returning from rehab and facing overwhelming burdens can often trigger immediate relapse, which is something that should be prevented at all costs.

A few priorities to consider before arrival to a detox and rehab center are:

Work – Addiction is considered a serious health condition, and by law, eligible individuals are permitted by, “The Family Medical Leave Act,” to take a job-protected leave of absence.  Our staff is able to help complete any necessary paperwork required by your employer.

Finances – Make arrangements to cover your financial obligations during the treatment period.

Court – Often, legal problems go hand in hand with addiction and drug abuse. If there are pending court dates, be sure to notify your attorney, the courts, or have a friend or family member be present at the scheduled court date.  Once in treatment, our staff is able to work with the legal system, including attorneys, judges, and probation officers, so you are in compliance with any current court orders or probationary requirements.

Family and Friends – Chances are that loved ones already know. Take some time before leaving to apologize for shortcomings or problems which have arisen from your addiction.  Support from your family and friends will help you succeed in your recovery.

Once everything is in place, you can enter treatment with only one concern – overcoming addiction.

If you or someone you know suffers from alcohol or drug addiction, please know that it’s never too late to get help.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help, and don’t be afraid to get sober – contact us today for more information at 1-800-570-2626
