Alcohol Rehab Myths and Why You Shouldn’t Believe Them

Alcohol rehab centers can help you overcome your addiction!

Alcohol rehab centers can help you overcome your addiction!

People who are addicted to alcohol and those who are not have likely heard the many myths that are associated with alcohol rehab. In fact, you or someone you know may even believe some of the myths that you have heard along the way. Unfortunately, there are many myths about alcohol rehab and it’s important that you don’t fall victim to actually believing any of these myths—especially if you are an addict in need of treatment or you are trying to help a loved one who is addicted to alcohol.

Alcoholics are Just Weak and Don’t Want to Stop because If They Wanted to, They Could

If you think that your loved one just doesn’t want to stop drinking because if they only wanted to that they could, you are wrong. A very common myth that most people in alcohol rehab have heard more than once is that if they really wanted to stop drinking then they would just quit and that would be that. Unfortunately, some people may try very hard to quit but without the help of an alcohol rehab center they simply can’t stop drinking no matter how much they want to. Alcoholics are not necessarily weak people who just gave in to temptation. Alcohol rehab centers can help you overcome the temptation and heal so that you can make a full recovery from alcohol addiction.

The Only Way Alcohol Rehab will Help is If the Addict Has Already Hit Rock Bottom

If you think that you or your loved one has to completely hit rock bottom before alcohol rehab will be of any help, think again! People do not have to hit rock bottom in order to actually recover from alcohol addiction and in fact, the sooner an addiction is realized and treated the more likely the individual will be to make a recovery without suffering long term (permanent) consequences such as damage to the liver, kidneys and even potentially the brain as a result of alcoholism.

If you Relapse after Drug Rehab then You Have to start ALL Over from Point A

If you or someone you love is an alcoholic and they have completed treatment in an alcohol rehab center but they later relapse, it’s not a matter of starting over from the beginning. The most important thing to remember is that everyone makes mistakes and sometimes people will relapse. Picking up the pieces as quickly as possible and getting back on track to your recovery is the best thing you can do in the event of a relapse. After you complete rehab, follow up with your counselor and the alcohol rehab center and take part in any of the aftercare programs that are offered to you to assure your greatest chances of a successful and long term recovery from alcohol addiction.
