Addiction Is Not Prejudice and Neither are Rehab Centers
Rehab centers offer a place for you to come and get treatment, not judged.
Are you addicted to drugs or alcohol and considering seeking help at a rehab center but afraid that you will be frowned upon, laughed at or that you won’t fit in? Have you ever heard the phrase, addiction is not prejudice? The same way that you can assure that addiction is not prejudice, you can also assure that rehab centers are not prejudice meaning that they will not laugh, frown or otherwise turn you down because of your need for treatment.
You are not alone in your fight against addiction. Rehab centers provide a range of services to individuals of all walks of life. If you think you’re alone in your fight, consider the fact that nearly every individual has either a) suffered from addiction that has required treatment, b) had a family member who suffered from addiction and needed treatment, c) had a friend who suffered from addiction and needed treatment, or d) has a close friend or family member who knows someone who has suffered from addiction and needed treatment.
Rehab centers practice a non-prejudice approach to addiction treatment and provide a safe and comforting environment where those suffering from addiction can heal from the pain that is caused. There’s no need to feel alone or to worry that you will not be accepted in treatment. Thousands of people suffer from addiction and need help, many have children, some are elderly, some rich and some poor. Chances are, you’ll meet someone in treatment who shares in your interests, shares similar struggles and even who felt similarly alone the way you are feeling right now.
If you or someone you know is addicted to drugs or alcohol, don’t hesitate to call for help. Rehab centers are not prejudice and they do not discriminate against age, race, sex, lifestyle, drug or substance of choice, religion or any other factors that may have you feeling like you won’t be accepted.
