Drugs are a serious issue in today’s world. All kinds of drugs, from pharmaceuticals to street drugs to the most-abused substance in America—alcohol—are difficult to recover from. Often, people choose to enter drug rehabilitation centers. There is no shame in this, and often it is safer than attempting to quit by yourself. So, what should you expect if you are checking into a drug rehabilitation center? Well, no two cases are exactly alike, but here are a few things to expect:
- Some sort of detoxification process, where you eliminate all the drugs in your system. This is the major reason it is safer to check into a rehabilitation program; this process is highly unsafe if not supervised by medical professionals. There are often such side effects as vomiting, diarrhea, fever, chills, and a dozen other unpleasant symptoms. This is an essential part of the rehabilitation process, but not one that should be taken lightly.
- There will be difficulty with keeping to the program. This is a given for quitting anything, but especially something that has progressed as far as to become an addiction. You must remember why you are choosing to let go of the addiction, why you are choosing recovery. You may have to do this every day, or several times a day.
- There will be days when you want to give up—again, on these days, you must remember why recovery is the best option.
- There will be good days, and there will be bad days. The bad days, however, will not make the good days count any less, and the bad days will not make the good days feel anything less than spectacular.
- Support is key to recovery. In the end, the process of recovery is up to you, but support keeps you going sometimes. Finding loved ones or a support group who will get you through the bad days may be what keeps you going.
- Your treatment will be different from everyone else’s. You are a completely unique person, with a unique set of circumstances and difficulties surrounding your addiction. Every single person who checks into a rehabilitation center is the same way: unique. Therefore, no one has the same treatment plan as another person. You can find support and people in the same boat as you in the center or in a support group, but you are unique, and only you will have the exact same kind of treatment.
- Making the choice for recovery is not easy. It is not easy to pick rehabilitation, but it may be necessary. Drugs and alcohol can completely change the course of your life, and to fix it, you need to choose to. Choosing to fix it comes in many different forms, and it comes every day. You may need to wake up every day and say, “I choose today to do everything in my power to get better.”
Recovery may not be easy, but it is one thing: worth it. Recovery is worth waking up every day for the rest of your life and fighting for. Everyone defines recovery differently, and once you have determined your definition of recovery, that will be what you are fighting for. You will wake up every morning, and it will never be easy. You will spiral backward, you will leap forwards, you will go every single day, fighting for your vision of recovery. If you are suffering from drug or alcohol addiction, if you are at rock bottom or close to it, you should know that you are not alone. You are not alone, and your fight will not go unseen. Checking into a drug rehabilitation center is not an easy choice. Fighting for recovery is not an easy choice. But, in the end, they will be worthwhile choices to have made.
