One of the most common misconceptions people have about drug and alcohol rehab is that an individual needs to have hit rock bottom or completely ruined their lives in order to require professional services. In movies and TV shows, we see characters check themselves in only after they overdosed or hurt their loved ones with their actions. This may be why you think you don’t need inpatient rehab, despite the fact that you have an addiction.
Our team is here to tell you that you don’t need to have lost everything before calling us for help. In fact, it may be in your best interests to call us before you lose the things you hold most dear: your relationships, your job, and your control over your life. Despite the fact that 21 million Americans have at least one addiction, only 10 percent of them receive the treatment they need. You don’t want to wait until it’s too late to get sober.
Some benefits of inpatient rehab that can help everyone, including high-functioning addicts, include:
- Supportive environment: People who are addicted to drugs or alcohol often feel isolated and alone in their struggles. When you join an inpatient rehab facility, however, you’ll be surrounded by individuals who are going through the same things as you—individuals you can lean on for support. Our team of expert staff members also cares about your well-being and is on standby should you need anything day or night.
- Development of healthy coping mechanisms: In rehab, you won’t just get sober. Many facilities like ours are equipped with therapists that can teach you the skills you need to resist alcohol or drugs in the future and cope with various situations in healthy ways. By adjusting your mindset now, you can avoid self-sabotaging in the future. These are tools you can’t get on your own.
- Medical assistance: By waiting to get treatment and assuming you don’t need help, you’re placing your own life in danger. For all you know, the next time you use could be your last. Rehab provides a safe sanctuary for you to get clean and be monitored by medical professionals throughout who can help you manage any symptoms you’re experiencing.
- Mental health treatment: Countless Americans don’t suffer from addiction alone—in fact, many addictions are closely intertwined with mental disorders like depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Some rehab centers, including Mount Sinai Wellness Center, offer dual diagnosis treatment that treats both addiction and mental health disorders in one cohesive program.
Are You a High-Functioning Addict?
Some people recognize that they have addictions but think they can manage them on their own. Others, however, don’t even realize that they’ve developed a problem until their relationships begin to crumble and their relationships become strained.
To help as many people as possible, we’ve provided a list of warning signs of addiction. If any of the following are relatable to you, we encourage you to reach out to us to learn more about how we can help.
You may have an alcohol or drug problem if:
- You keep taking the drug even after you no longer need it for medical purposes
- You need more of the drug or alcohol to feel the same high
- You’re lying about how much you’re taking or consuming
- You spend a lot of time thinking about the substance and when you’ll take it
- You’re losing interest in things you once enjoyed
- You’re losing money and borrowing or stealing to pay for more alcohol or drugs
- You say you’ll only use a certain amount, but end up taking way more than intended
Recover Safely in Nature
Some people imagine featureless white walls when they think of rehab. Mount Sinai Wellness Center’s lush, 43-wooded acre property debunks this myth and reminds us that rehab doesn’t have to feel like a cold, sterile facility. With the knowledge that everyone who stays with us eventually has to return to their lives, we strive to make our campus feel as home-like as possible to ease the transition to reality.
In addition to being out in nature where our patients can concentrate on themselves and their recovery, our amenities also include nutritious meals, luxurious and private bedrooms, and, of course, a team of expert doctors and support staff that are ready to help you when you need it. If you’re ready to get the help you need in Atlanta, give us a call.
