A lot of people are finding themselves facing difficult challenges with the sudden rise of coronavirus. They are now in quarantine at home due to the coronavirus, spending more time isolated. This can fuel drug cravings and lead to problems with loved ones that they’re staying with. Worse yet, their access to drugs is limited with stay-at-home orders in place, which can cause even more volatility in the home. With loved ones urging them to change, people suffering from substance abuse disorders have a great opportunity to find safety at rehab during this time.
Why Rehab Is a Safe Choice During Quarantine
If you are addicted to a drug, that may mean your body is chemically dependent on that drug to function. When you’re addicted to drugs but don’t have access to them, you may experience difficult symptoms of withdrawal. This may include uncomfortable physical sensations, feelings of anxiety or depression, and difficulty concentrating. Detoxing at home is possible, but is generally much safer under medical supervision.
When you enter an addiction treatment center, you’ll still go through detox. However, there is safety in rehab – you have licensed medical staff to constantly monitor your condition, and medication to help ease withdrawal symptoms. Some medications can mimic the function of the drugs your body is used to, helping to maintain a sense of comfort throughout the detox process. At Wellness Counseling & Residential Detox, you’ll also have holistic and evidence-based therapies at your disposal to help you adjust to your new normal.
Find Safety from COVID-19 in Rehab
During a time when people are being urged to shelter in place, entering a drug rehab program is a great way to ensure that you’ll remain isolated from the virus and also away from drugs. This moment in time is a fantastic opportunity for those who are struggling with addiction. In a 30, 60, or 90-day addiction treatment program, you can:
- Work through detox and rid yourself of dependence on drugs
- Begin addressing underlying mental health issues that could be fueling your addiction
- Work with a therapist to address traumatic experiences from your past
- Acquire tools necessary to live a successful, fulfilling life
- Stay safe from the virus, or have immediate access to medical care if you do get sick
While it may be difficult to leave your family or your partner right now, you’ll enter rehab as one person and leave as someone new and improved. With so much in flux with the economy, and businesses shutting their doors for the foreseeable future, now is a great time to leave your responsibilities behind and work on yourself.
Is Now Really the Right Time?
One of the questions many people have is whether this is a good time to enter into residential drug treatment. Should you stay home with your family? Is it even safe?
- Safety at rehab is very real. Our location has professional medical staff available.
- Residential rehab offers a means of self-quarantine. That means you’re not as likely to be exposed to the virus.
- Being with your family may be important, but if you’re going through withdrawal symptoms, your home life may be difficult.
With schools and businesses closed right now, there may not be a better time for you to reach out to find the support you need. You can detox in a controlled environment with medical professionals on staff, and speak with a therapist to address underlying mental health issues.
