Making the decision to get help for drug and alcohol addiction is a challenge. Once you do, you’ll find yourself working through a set of treatments, rebuilding relationships, and healing your body and brain. It takes time, but when you enter this process, you gain the ability to live a different life than you are living right now.
Make the Decision to Get Help for Addiction
If you’re unsure where to start in the addiction treatment process, consider the benefits it can bring to your life:
- Treatment creates mental clarity, resulting in an improved ability to make good decisions and a better understanding of your needs.
- Entering treatment frees you from physical dependence, empowering you to stop drinking or using drugs.
- With treatment comes healing. Both your body and brain need time to heal from the damage of addiction.
- Treatment provides support for underlying mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder.
- Treatment helps you regain the ability to create and maintain relationships.
The list of benefits of addiction treatment are numerous. Yet sometimes you or a loved one will still feel unsure about what you need or what will work best or whether you even need treatment at all.
Recovery Mentoring = Talking with Someone Who Has Been There
At DK Solutions Group, we provide a range of services to help you. Recovery mentoring is one of them. From the beginning of your journey throughout your recovery, a mentor can help you by providing information, listening to your concerns and fears, and finding options for treatment that will work for you. Continuing to work with a mentor after treatment helps you handle:
- High stress times
- Making difficult decisions
- Complications from mental health disorders
- Relapse triggers
- Relationship problems
A recovery mentor goes with you on your journey. The goal is to help keep you on the path to recovery.
Recovery Mentoring Can Help You Answer These Questions
- What Level of Treatment Do I Need?
Some people gain the most benefit from residential treatment: living at a facility for 30 or more days and experiencing a daily schedule of therapeutic activities. Others may benefit from outpatient therapy: living at home while attending an intensive program of morning and/or evening meetings and therapy sessions. A recovery mentor can help you assess what type of treatment will work best for you.
- Going to Rehab Doesn’t Solve My Problems – So Why Go?
Some people don’t see addiction as the problem they face. Rather, they see the damage it has caused–financial loss, ruined relationships, health complications–as the real problem. They assume that rehab won’t fix those problems–so why go?
Recovery mentoring can help you or a loved one see that going to treatment now stops all these problems from getting worse. They can help you find a treatment center that makes you feel hopeful and that offers the therapies that best fit your needs.
