In dealing with people from all over the country regarding substance abuse and addiction, we’ve heard just about every excuse that has been used as a reason for someone to not get help for either theirs or someone else’s drug or alcohol issue. The problem is that addiction isn’t a rational behavior and therefore any reason given why now is not the right time to get help is usually going to be irrational as well.
Sure, there may be extreme cases, but when it really comes down to it, what can be more important than stopping the self-destruction? Rather than finding reasons why you (or your loved one) can’t go into treatment now, shift your focus on how to resolve the issues that may be perceived as road blocks. You would be surprised what happens when you start to make decisions based on constructive intentions. The actions of life restoration and preservation are universally met with positive resonance. The greater sphere of influence and connectivity return that positive energy in countless ways.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help from friends or family members to assist you in this decision. You’ll find they’re much more willing to help you save your life than to help you continue destroying it.
The truth is that there really has never been a better time for people to get help than now. There is more access to treatment and behavioral health benefits from insurance providers thanks to legislation mandating it and there is greater understanding and support from people thanks to recovery advocacy groups.
So when is the right time to seek a rehabilitation program for addiction? Now.
