So, you want to get clean

If you, like many others, suffer from a drug addiction, know that you are not alone and recovery is possible. There are many resources out there that are easily accessible to addicts who can help you get clean and stay clean. It is normal to be scared and unsure about making a complete transformation of yourself.

Not too long ago, drug rehabilitation was expensive and there were few resources out there that could be utilized to get off of drugs; however, in recent years, rehabilitation services have become increasingly available as awareness has been developed. Here are some tips to get you started in the right direction in your recovery process.

Making a choice to Change

Making the choice to turn your life around can be very scary as it is a very uncertain point in your life that you will need to overcome. Before you start moving towards a plan in your recovery, you need to cement it in your mind what reasons are motivating you to want to give up your addiction. They say that unless an addict hits rock-bottom, it is near impossible for them to decide that they want to attain sobriety. The bottom-line is that if you want to quit, you can’t quit because of anyone else, you must want sobriety for yourself.
Some common motivators in quitting drugs are:

Legal problems

Family and spousal problems such as your partner wanting to get divorced or your children being taken away by the state protective services.

Over-doses and near-death experiences

First Hurdle to Jump:

Detox

Drugs such as opiates cause a physical and mental dependency. If you’re a heroin or pill addict, you know this is true. You wake up in the morning, immediately get your fix, if you don’t have your fix, then you are miserable. You are shaky, nauseous; your muscles hurt, you get depressed, and so on.

The most crucial part of recovery is within the first 9 days of getting off your drug of Many psychiatric hospitals have wards for those who are detoxing off of serious drugs. Any mental health expert will tell you that it takes 9 full days to detox off of drugs like opioid pills, heroin, and cocaine.

Choosing to go to Rehab

When you start the recovery process, you need to be open to the possibility of going to rehab. Although you can get and stay clean on your own, you are more likely to relapse than you would be at a rehab. Rehabs provide a safe and stable environment to discover who you really are. When choosing a rehab, you should decide on one that fits your needs.

Life After Drugs

3After you get out of rehab, you’re going to have to make some big choices. You will have to change every aspect of your life to stay sober. If you want to connect with other addicts and make new, positive relationships, you should attend a meeting such as Narcotics Anonymous.

You’re going to have to change your setting, your friends, what you do in your free-time to stay clean. However, in the end, you will see that making the choice to get clean is the best choice you’ve ever made.
