This is the time of year many people start drug or alcohol rehab. For some, it may be the letdown of the holidays that prompts them. For others, it may be a New Year’s resolution. Or, maybe a loved one they haven’t seen in a while has prompted them. Whatever the reason, the New Year is a great time to start drug or alcohol rehab.
Time To Get Rid Of Drug Addiction Excuses
An addict or alcoholic has enough excuses to last a whole year. Maybe this year, the excuses have run dry and it’s time to seek sobriety instead. Drug rehab can seem like a huge mountain in your path when you first get started. That’s OK, it’s normal to be overwhelmed by something so different from what you are used to.
In many respects, a new year is just a different calendar page. Same routine, same mindset, same choices. But if you have grown tired of your life with a drug or alcohol addiction, the fuss over a new year might make you look at it more closely. The sometimes corny idea of a resolution might really take hold for you. If you are ready to embrace some change and give up your excuses, then it’s time for you to start drug rehab.
See Addiction From A New Year Perspective
Here’s a New Year’s way of looking at drug rehab. In the coming year, you could make a complete lifestyle change for the better. Drug addiction makes a person’s overall health suffer in various ways – chronic disorders, fatigue, poor muscle strength, heart and lung problems, etc. By the next New Year, your picture of health might look quite different.
By the next New Year, you could have a major impact on your finances. Cutting out drug purchases, high volumes of alcohol, legal fees, drug and alcohol related medical bills, late fees for bills, money unwisely spent while drinking or drugged up, job loss or problems getting a job – all of these really hurt a person’s budget. Whatever you do to make positive change by becoming sober, you will see a big change in your financial situation.
During the New Year, your time at drug rehab can connect you to people you never thought you would meet or even get along with. Other people trying to get sober, trying to live a sober life every day, struggling with
relapse now and then. You can connect with them, help them through their low spots, and find support when you need it yourself. These kinds of human connections are priceless and can last a lifetime.
New Year New Opportunity For Drug Rehab
So yes, the new year may be your time to enter a drug rehab center. It may be your time to commit to a different way of life. It may be the time you let go of your familiar but painful drug addiction. This time, make the new year more than just a new page on your calendar. Make it your year for drug
treatment and sobriety.
