Many people sit on the fence for years when it comes to actually deciding if they have a drug or alcohol problem since they don’t have access to the right information. Rehabilitation programs would be able to help some of these folks if they only worked through the following criteria.
- Keeping track of your drug use often is clear indication there’s a problem. When you start to see increases or spikes in the amounts you can rest assured there’s an issue you need to look at.
- Make up a list of the pros and cons of quitting and you’ll quickly see that entering a treatment facility to get your life back on track comes out on top.
- Have a talk with a trusted friend. Remember that it’s quite often those around us that see the drug abuse problem before we do. Someone close might be the right person to start you on the proper path.
Finally it’s a good idea to think about the things that are important to you and the relationships that have been affected by your drug use. That might be enough to push you to entering rehabilitation programs in your area.
