Walking Away From An Addiction Treatment Center If you’re not ready yet to enter an addiction treatment center that’s normal. You shouldn’t beat yourself up about it. Yes, you told your friends and family that you would get help and you went and checked in but then immediately checked out. It takes some addicts a few times before they are finally ready to surrender to the disease and get the help they need. Entering rehab can be a lot like going to jail, you just don’t know what to expect from the process. Once you’re in there you’ll see that you can handle it. It will be hard work but you’ll adjust. Drug Addiction Center: When You Don’t Want To Visit Dad You dad has been a bad alcoholic for years so it makes sense that you don’t want to visit him now that he’s entered a drug addiction center. You haven’t had a relationship with him for a long time and now he’s reaching out to you to come to rehab and talk to him. You feel you owe him nothing and maybe you don’t owe him anything but sometimes it can be a helpful experience because it allows you to get some things off your chest.

While the detox part will be challenging and you’ll definitely have to put a lot of time into rehab the rewards at the end are usually life changing. Sometimes people hit rock bottom, whether it’s because a relationship has ended or a job and they act impulsively. Checking into rehab can be a gut reaction but if you feel you need to take some time to dry out then calling for help was a good idea.
