What Does Treatment Have in Store?
Most people just starting out have no idea what addiction treatment is really like. Of course, if they’ve never had to recover from an addiction, why should they know? The most people can really understand at first is that successful treatment means no longer being trapped in compulsive drug use. That in itself seems a miraculous thing, but it also can be very frightening. People worry that they can’t make it through withdrawal and detox, for example. They also worry that they won’t be able to survive without using.
Thankfully, treatment and recovery efforts support you far more easily through detox and withdrawal than you may be able to imagine. Most people’s experience of withdrawal has been at home and without medical supervision or professional support. Withdrawal and detox in treatment, however, is a whole different matter. You’ll have care throughout that eases discomfort. Treatment will also fill in any gaps that abstinence creates in your ability to manage daily life. So, there’s not only abstinence to look forward to in recovery, but a higher and healthier level of managing daily life, too.
What Else Will Happen in Recovery?
There is a great deal more than a successful detox to look forward to in recovery from addiction. You can expect improvement in all areas of your life that addiction has impacted. That says a lot! You can think of it this way: you can recover healthy ground in any aspect of life that addiction stole from you. That means you’ll be able to think and feel better. You’ll be able to manage your daily affairs better. You’ll have the ability to build and maintain healthier relationships; pursue your work or studies with a clear mind, motivation and energy… In short, you can be healthy. Are you ready for it?
