According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, in 2009 there were nearly 24 million people in need of drug treatment and only 2.6 million of these addicts enrolled in a rehab center. Drug addiction is a serious issue in this country, and it is clear that despite the availability of rehab centers, there are many addicts that don’t take advantage of the help available to them.
While these may be valid reasons, it is important for addicts to recognize there are options that can combat the above roadblocks.
Often addicts worry about how attending rehab will impact their lives negatively. They refuse to see the positive effects that a treatment program can have upon them. The negative things they often focus on include:
There are some truths to the above concerns. However, rehab facilities can accommodate the needs of any patient when the right rehab center is chosen. For example, there are outpatient facilities that can allow addicts to remain living at home. There are also inpatient treatment centers that provide counseling services with family members. It is also important for addicts to recognize that a program that isolates them from their loved ones, if recommended, is probably beneficial to their recovery.
As for the concerns that rehab will be unpleasant, there is no doubt that it is challenging. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. The concept of “comfort level” is subjective, which is why addicts should research their options and attend a rehab center that is in line with their personal needs – they do exist. This addresses both of these issues – a lack of knowledge about the things that drug rehab centers can offer them and the belief that drug rehab centers are not suitable for their lifestyles.
There are few addicts who identify themselves that they have a problem – it is usually necessary that they listen to the guidance of family, friends and trained interventionists. Resistance to go does not mean that help is not required.
Rehab centers can vary greatly in price, depending on the option selected. Outpatient treatment costs approximately $2,000 on average with medication for detox. Inpatient treatment is approximately $7,000 on average but it can cost up to tens of thousands of dollars. While these costs may seem too high for an addict’s affordability, many rehab centers offer payment plans, reduced costs and payment on a sliding scale. There are numerous options for those who want treatment but can’t afford it.
