Reasons Addicts Avoid Going to Rehab

Reasons Addicts Avoid Going to Rehab

lies2

When we speak with the loved ones of addicts, they are often frustrated watching the person they love continue to avoid treatment. One of their most common questions is, “Why do addicts avoid rehab?”

It can be frustrating, but there is a way you can help. By understanding the reasons addicts avoid going to an addictio treatment center, you can support and encourage your loved one to seek help:

1. Denial “I don’t have a problem!”

Some addicts are in denial. They do not believe they have a problem with drugs or alcohol, or they believe they can stop whenever they want. If this is the reason your loved one gives for avoiding rehab, lovingly ask why, if they don’t have a problem, they continue to use even though their use has negative consequences on their personal and professional life.

2. “It costs too much!”

The concern about cost is one of the most common reasons why addicts avoid treatment, and it is a valid concern. Rehab can be expensive, but that should not be the reason you or your loved one avoids treatment. At Always Hope we are a low-cost alternative to make treatment available to all financial circumstances.

Call 1-829-932-0123 to get cost options and to see if you qualify for a discount towards flight.

Addiction is also very expensive — maintaining a substance abuse habit is incredibly costly on its own. Additionally, the consequences of a continued addiction, such as medical care, therapy or divorce, can be significantly more expensive than rehab. Depending on your situation, you may also find that rehab is tax deductible.

3. “I don’t have the time!”

For many addicts, they fear they’ll lose their job if they take time off for rehab. The truth is that many are already on the path to lose there job or lost it already.

4. “Rehab doesn’t work!”

In many cases, if an addict has been to a treatment centre and relapsed after treatment, or they have a friend who has relapsed after treatment, they believe rehab doesn’t work. The truth is, many addicts who have been through treatment may relapse one or more times before they are successful in their recovery. This should not be a reason to avoid treatment, since those who complete rehab have a higher chance of recovering without relapse.

Conclusion:

With an understanding of why so many addicts avoid going, you can approach your loved one with resources in hand to help convince them to begin treatment right away. Help them sort through their concerns, work with them to arrange leave from work, straighten out their finances and/or connect them with someone who has completed rehab with great success.

If you or someone you love is avoiding getting help for addiction, now is the time to take action. Contact us at Always Hope for help and any other questions.

Not Like a Prison; a Testimonial

“Always Hope was the perfect recovery centre for my needs. I had been to 2 other treatment centres in the past 6 months, but I walked in the front door and out the back within a few days due to the prison like atmosphere. As Always Hope only takes a maximum of 5 clients at a time, you are privileged with plenty of 1-1 counselling with a great counsellor who has many years of experience as well as having been in my shoes in the past.

The people helping you at Always Hope have been through the same or similar struggles so they come from a perspective of experience which gave me another level of respect for the centre. There is a caring family/friendship atmosphere and not like a prison. I am a professional in my career and was able to continue to function and help with my business back home while accepting treatment and help with my addiction to alcohol.

I highly recommend Always Hope treatment centre to any individual or anyone struggling with the confinement and constraints of other centres. The tropical atmosphere is amazing, and there are 12 step meetings available 7 days a week with a great small group.”

Addiction doesn’t take a Holiday

Addiction doesn’t take a Holiday

Addiction is cunning, baffling and powerful, it doesn’t rest just because the holiday season is here. We at Always Hope addiction treatment facility realize this and are available to help before, during and after any holiday.

Many people believe that the holiday season is an improper or inappropriate time to go to treatment. Excuses are made and addicts are enabled to continue their downward spiral during this giving time of year.

“It just wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without….”

“It’s not so bad we will get through the holidays first.”

Call 24/7 to speak with us 1-829-932-0123

The best gift any family could receive is their loved one taking the first step towards dealing with their addiction and coming back healthy and happy. The alternative is a very stressful holiday and possibly the addicts last. Drugs, alcohol, and suicide may take an addicts life at any time and this unfortunately could be their last Thanksgiving.

Truth is the holidays may be the best time to reclaim their lives from the grip of addiction. It is supposed to be a time of happiness and joy, but can quickly turn to dysfunction, stress, shame and fear. There may be no better place for a struggling addict to be at this time of year than the safe environment of an addiction treatment facility.

Here at Always Hope we will be celebrating the holidays a little different than usual. Sure we will have the usual turkey dinner, but we will also take time to head to the beach which is not normal for us from the Great White North. Why not join us to begin your path to recovery and enjoy the Caribbean paradise that surrounds us? If you or someone you know needs help please contact us. We are here to talk or provide assistance as needed during this grateful time of year.

Gratitude: Being Thankful can keep you Healthy

Gratitude: Being Thankful can keep you Healthy

What if there was a solution to stress so simple that it involved nothing more than feeling thankful for the good things in your life? In fact, there is and that solution is called gratitude. Studies have shown that people who regularly practice feelings of gratitude have an advantage when it comes to their health. Research has found that those who adopt an “attitude of gratitude” as a permanent state of mind experience many health benefits.

Gratitude may be more likely to help people:

  • take better care of themselves physically and mentally
  • engage in more proactive health behaviors and maintenance
  • get more regular exercise
  • eat a healthier diet
  • have improved mental alertness
  • cope better with stress and daily challenges
  • feel happier and more optimistic
  • have stronger immune systems
  • maintain a brighter view of the future

With so many benefits, who wouldn’t want to try this? To start giving thanks, consider integrating some of the steps below into your daily life.

Fight or Flight

fight or flight addiction

Fight or Flight

We all have the primitive instincts in the face of what we fear, whether positive or negative, which is either to retreat or aggressively react to what threatens us. This is the natural “fight or flight” instinct. But if I limit myself to these choices, I rend myself truly powerless to find the serenity of acceptance, or the courage to change.

So I’ve found that before I decide to accept or change my circumstances, I need to settle down enough to see them as they are, not better or worse than they are. I need to find clarity, wisdom, and love in the face of them.

But the amazing thing about working a program of recovery is I have learned that I don’t have to give in to these wild swings of emotion. I can see them come up, feel them in all their intensity, and not let them take me down the wrong path. As long as I do a few simple things in response to the feeling of “fight or flight” life goes alright:

Calm my mind.
Be willing to consider alternative options and points of view.
Be more interested in reaching an understanding than in insisting upon agreement.

Rehab Reviews and Addiction Treatment

Rehab Reviews and Addiction Treatment

Choosing a rehab or addiction treatment facility can be difficult. There are many options available based on cost, location or types of treatment available. When choosing which rehab is right for you take the time to check out the website of the addiction treatment facility your interested in, call someone from the facility and check out some reviews. Not all rehabs are listed on these sites but they may give you some insight to costs and possible testimonials. We are a new rehab and aren’t listed yet, and we also don’t feel it’s ethical to pay for a review to promote our rehab(so we may never appear on these sites).

If you wish to know more about what we have to offer contact us by email or phone 1-829-932-0123

Addiction Treatment with a Caribbean Twist

recovery caribbean coast

Addiction Treatment Philosophy

Our philosophy at Always Hope is different then most facilities. We want you to feel at home when you are here. The institutional feel of many places leads the addict/alcoholic to feel as they are less than the staff and counsellors. This may lead to greater struggles as most people who enter an addiction treatment center already have issues being told what to do and how to do it. Actions speak louder than words and we at Always Hope walk the talk. We are all equal, no better and no worse. We have lived through the struggles with addiction and overcame. Theory can only take you so far, but if you work with our highly qualified counsellor who has lived through the grips of active addiction you will learn to regain control of your life.

Addiction treatment works best if you are not in your own environment.

We started an addiction treatment center in the heart of the Caribbean, in our own little paradise, the Dominican Republic.

Here is no distraction, a complete new life, away from everything you know or that might disturb you. We are located at the beautiful North Coast, in the surroundings of Puerto Plata. This location goes hand-in-hand with the programs we offer. The Dominican Republic has lots to offer in the form of activities on your road to recovery.

If you just want to sit by the pool, or at the beach in your free time we provide the time to relax and recuperate. We want the process of healing your mind, body and spirit to be as easy a journey as possible and so you will not be confined to the treatment facilities.
