Most Common Excuses for Avoiding Drug Rehab\r\n1. \u201cI can\u2019t miss work for that long.\u201d\r\nYou can. Many addicts actually lose their jobs because their habit gets out of hand and their behavior at work causes issues in their daily work, relationships, and time management. The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) actually allows employees to take an unpaid leave of absence for situations such as drug rehab, while preserving their job until they return. Do you research, take advantage of these kinds of benefits, and put your mental and physical health first.\r\n\r\n2. \u201cI don\u2019t have the money.\u201d\r\nYou do. Think of how much money you put toward your habit. Add up what you have spent and add up what you will spend if your addiction continues. Include potential medical bills, therapy, and more, because as addiction continues, so will the consequences. Going to drug and alcohol rehab will actually save you money later on. Also, your health is priceless, and your life is important.\r\n\r\n3. \u201cI don\u2019t want to be far from my family and friends.\u201d\r\nLeaving family and friends is difficult, but phone calls and visits are an option. Drug rehab is only temporary, and your best times with your friends and family will be the times that you are sober. Going to rehab, reclaiming your life, and going home sober will only better your relationships. Oftentimes, drug and alcohol rehab is the place where you can rebuild broken relationships, pinpoint unhealthy relationships, and regain personal health so that you can make new, healthy relationships with people.\r\n\r\n4. \u201cI don\u2019t want to talk to strangers about my problems.\u201d\r\nEveryone at drug rehab is there because they want to get better. Individual and group therapy is a safe place where judgment does not exist. These fresh, objective perspectives will actually help you move forward and start over. The initial awkwardness will fade, and you will realize how helpful the environment of drug and alcohol rehab can be.\r\n\r\n5. \u201cI don\u2019t want to stop using\/I don\u2019t think I have a problem.\u201d\r\nWhy don\u2019t you want to stop? Test yourself, stop for a week and see if you really don\u2019t have an addiction. Denial is often a defense mechanism. If you convince yourself you\u2019re okay, you\u2019ll believe it. But are you really? Ask a trusted family member or friend to help you see your situation clearly. Be honest with yourself. Drug rehab\u00a0is there when you\u2019re ready to admit you need help.\r\n\r\n \r\nCurbing Your Excuses and Attending Drug and Alcohol Rehab\r\nIf you\u2019re done making excuses and are ready for drug and alcohol rehab, Beaches Recovery is here to help you get started.
