There are little responsibilities that are asked of the addict, unlike those of day-to-day life – the need to pay bills, maintain a clean house and take care of children, much less show up at work on time and sober.
When someone is contemplating entering treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, there are a number of various concerns and fears that can become an inability of that good intention.

The mental image that people can have of treatment programs being a forced march down a road of treatment, leading to the miserable life they have been striving to escape can harm their progression towards recovery. The traditional view of drug therapy as a long boring talk about problems that cannot be solved, or the idea that addiction is genetic or medical and; therefore, a disease that is incurable or untreatable, all stand in the way of many recovery opportunities. These are false perceptions and should not be impediments to the great opportunity that recovery treatment can offer for a healthy, sober and fulfilling life.

In concept, treatment is simple at an inpatient drug rehab facility. There is a fantastic staff surrounding the patient, and they are given a directive of making sure that sobriety is an option that the patient can attain. The accommodations while in treatment are generally peaceful, and there are individuals surrounding the addict who truly care about and nurture the person who is recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. There are little responsibilities that are asked of the addict, unlike those of day-to-day life – the need to pay bills, maintain a clean house and take care of children, much less show up at work on time and sober.  All of these are removed from the addict’s shoulders which make them available to concentrate on what is important–healing and growth.

In reality, treatment is one of the most difficult things a person will have to encounter. The requirement of intensive therapy, which investigates the addict’s internal and private motivations, are extreme. The emotional energy given by just discovering what it is that has driven the struggling addict to arrive at this place of treatment from a life out of control is a task that many avoid having to face. There is an important need to adopt physical exercise and a healthy and nutritional program, in order to sustain the patient’s physical body during the stress and trauma that are part of recovering from substance abuse. There is the need to rehabilitate or recreate a life that has been overtaken by addiction behaviors. Only with the most talented, dedicated and genuine support professionals and medical staff can an addict reach for the stability that a sober and enriched life can offer.
