Admissions Getting Started
Unless you’ve been formally diagnosed with an addiction disorder, we can’t advise that you need help with your addiction. However, in this case, it’s best to listen to your gut. If you feel that you have a problem with addiction or substance abuse, you probably do. If that’s true for you, it is highly likely that you would benefit from treatment.
Addiction is a complex issue; it affects people from all levels of society. Addiction can be triggered by any number of reasons – genetics, life events, trauma, or even stress. Some people may exhibit thrill-seeking behaviors that have lead them to addiction while others have succumbed to societal pressures. Still others may have begun abusing alcohol or other substances as a way to cope with daily stressors. Some people use drugs or alcohol and never develop an addiction while others fall slowly or quickly into a habit and then addiction.
It’s suggested that 1 in 10 Americans suffer from the progressive drug or alcohol addiction diseases. Addiction has many defining or tell-tale characteristics. Often, those who are in full-blown dependency or addiction will continue to use alcohol and/or drugs despite facing negative consequences.
A clear indicator that you are suffering from the disease of addiction is wanting to stop and failing to do so on your own. When you find yourself in a cycle of wanting to quit and get better but being unable to, it is time to get help with your addiction. Because addiction may have wreaked havoc in your personal life, destroying friendships, careers, alienating family support, you may feel as though you are trapped with no way to get out. Fortunately, at Chiron, we understand that this is a place where many of our clients find themselves in and we are committed to helping you become untangled from your addiction so that you can move on with your life.
If you are still not convinced that you need help with your addition, think about the following questions. Don’t forget, to be honest with yourself along the way.
- Do you feel bad or experience any negative symptoms when you stop use or can’t find a way to get drugs or alcohol?
This isn’t an exhaustive list nor should it be used in place of a full clinical evaluation by a medical professional. However, if you found yourself answering yes to some, all, or many of these questions, there’s a good indication that you could benefit from rehabilitation treatment. We at Chiron consider addiction to be a disease, not a character flaw. We celebrate all people, young and old, rich, and poor, from all corners of the earth, for what they are – individuals with unique needs who shouldn’t be lumped into a single defining category.
