The fear of addiction treatment can be an overwhelming barrier that prevents individuals from getting sober.
Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
A Forever Recovery, an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in, is focusing on the most common fears of addiction treatment in its latest blog post.
“The fear of addiction treatment can be an overwhelming barrier that prevents individuals from getting sober,” commented A Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “It’s our hope that this blog post will help addicts turn their fear of treatment into fuel that drives them to rebuild their better, happier and stronger substance-free life ahead.”
According to the A Forever Recovery blog post, the most common fears of addiction treatment include (but aren’t limited to):
- The fear of wasting their money on treatment that doesn’t work. This is certainly a legitimate fear, and individuals and those who support them emotionally and possibly financially as well (in whole or in part) can tackle this fear head-on by doing their homework, and scrutinize potential treatment facilities and programs by asking questions about everything from their financing options, to the nature and dynamic of their programs and methodologies. It’s also important to ask about after-care support systems to help prevent a relapse down the road.
- The fear of choosing the wrong program. As mentioned above, this fear can be overcome by exploring various program options and understanding how each one works. Credible treatment facilities will be happy to provide insights and information on their approaches and programs.
- A fear of failure. Most addicts have tried to get sober at least once; and more likely, several times. As a result, they can be afraid of failing again. The best way to address this fear is, again, to explore different treatment options and compare them in terms of their approach, programs and after-care support systems.
