When Should I Start Rehab?

Do you feel like you are living under the shadow of addiction? You deserve to be free of it and live the life that you want. But, like so many other people who want to fight an addiction to alcohol or drugs, you have probably wondered: “When should I start rehab?”

The honest answer is today. No matter what is happening in your life, you have to prioritize your health and happiness, which means not giving addiction the chance to grow even stronger and do even more damage. To challenge addiction head-on, you should take action right now and contact a drug rehab center in your area.

Why Your Rehab Journey Should Start Today

When you do something today, it’s done. There is real power in being able to check something off your to-do list, especially when it is something as important as starting your rehab journey.

The problem with saying that you will start rehab “tomorrow” or “next week when you have a little more free time” is that there are always going to be many tomorrows and next weeks. You will always be able to tell yourself that you will start fighting addiction tomorrow, so that excuse will always seem valid. Meanwhile, addiction will only be afforded more opportunities to get stronger and more difficult to overcome.

On the other hand, there is only one today. If you decide to start fighting addiction today, then you will have to take action now. You can’t subconsciously use the excuse that you will always have tomorrow because you told yourself that tomorrow was not good enough. Real meaningful action against addiction should begin today, just as you deserve.

Who Can Help You with Rehab Today?

Now that you have decided that your drug or alcohol addiction treatment should begin today, the next step will be figuring out who can help you today. One important resource that anyone can use is SAMHSA or the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. By clicking here, you can use this no-cost nationwide resource to find a treatment center near you, as well as a 24/7/365 treatment referral helpline. SAMHSA gives you the opportunity to find the help you need without delay, no matter the hour or date.

Another option is to find a local addiction treatment center that you know you can trust. See if there are local recovery groups that are open to speaking with new members. They might be able to point you to a center that has worked for them.
