Every addict has asked himself sometimes: How should I even start a therapy? How could someone help me? Am I hopeless?
Well, here are the answers! There is a lot of people who are able to help you. You should just ask for help. Sometimes not even that. And, you know what? You are most certainly not hopeless. No one is. If you want to start therapy and go to rehab, here is what you should do.
How to start a therapy – first step
First of all, you have to make a decision and be sure that you want to be cured. Think about yourself. Think about your life and what have you done so far. Do you have some accomplishments? Why is it like that? Do you want to change it? What is the real reason for drug use? It would be great if you know all the answers, but even if you do not, it is not a big deal. You will acknowledge it eventually.
The moment when you are about to go to rehab, that is the moment when you really want to stop using drugs. Also, you have to accept that you need help from experts. You can not go through detox by yourself. That can be very difficult, mentally and physically.
Many people who are starting rehab for the first time may not know what to expect. It is entirely normal to feel stressed about this process. But in the end, you will feel just like a new person.
How to start a therapy – second step
It would be good to let other people know what are you about to do. They will be happy with your decision and supportive. Take care of work and family.
Your friends love you and they want the healthiest and happiest version of you. They want you to feel better as soon as possible. If having pets, ask someone to take care of them during your rehab time. It will be good to know that things at home are in order and as they are supposed to be.
Also, it will be good to tie up financial problems. If you have bills that need to be paid while you are at rehab, ask to someone about making sure your bills get paid.
At the clinic, you do not need a lot of stuff. Sure, you can bring whatever you want, but it would be great if you have only the essentials. By sticking to the essentials, you will minimize any distractions that can compromise your sobriety.
Remember: This is an opportunity to save your life!
