Why starting rehab earlier will help you overcome your addiction
People may think that rehab won’t benefit them and that the only people who attend rehab have to meet a specific criteria – and it’s because of this, some people may not choose to start rehab until they believe they have hit ‘rock bottom’.
Rehab can help anyone beat their addiction as long as they show they are willing.
Are all addictions treatable?
Any addiction that a person is developing a strong dependency on can be treated with the right help. Contact us.
Many people who are starting rehab may be experiencing an addiction towards a specific subject:
- Drugs (stimulants, opiates, benzodiazepines, prescription)
- Behavioural (gambling, gaming, bitcoin, sex/love)

Choosing the right rehab
Finding the right rehab will be critical for sustainable recovery. You might have looked for ‘rehabs near me’ and have come up empty, check out this helpful post which highlights what you need to do if there is no rehab centre near you.
You don’t need to delay getting help
By getting help early, patients are likely to experience numerous noticeable benefits:
- Spending less time in the hospital
- Reducing the number of days in rehab
- Improve their physical and mental health
You don’t need to reach a certain point with your addiction to begin starting rehab.
Individuals with addictions may make excuses for it and attempt to downplay the severity of it in order to avoid getting help.
But by doing so, you are doing worse for your physical and mental health by delaying help that will change your life for the better.
Rehab does more than just detox you
Going to rehab does not only mean having a detox and then leaving to go home.
The purpose of rehab is to:
- Uncover reasons that can be linked to the dependency through therapy/counselling
- Provide you with everything that you will need to maintain your sobriety when you leave rehab
Many people choose to start rehab at an inpatient facility because they are provided with a safe environment that makes the detox and recovering period easier for them. Find out more about counselling.
