Why You Should Feel Good About Sending Your Loved One to Inpatient Rehab

by | Last updated Oct 2, 2020 at 2:11PM | Published on Jun 26, 2019 | Finding Addiction Help For A Loved One

Fear of the unknown is omnipresent when a loved one is struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction. This fear can be crippling and can often leave a person paralyzed to decide anything. However, having the courage to make the decision to place a loved one in our inpatient rehab can truly be a life or death decision. One of the best ways to feel better about placing a loved one in rehab is to understand that an addict will be leaving a life of isolation caused by addiction and entering a fully supportive environment. Today, we will look at what loved ones and addicts alike can expect from our inpatient rehab facility.

Often, the biggest hurdle early in the addiction rehabilitation process is reconnecting with emotions that haven’t been experienced in quite some time. Addictions are all consuming and feelings of love, sadness, empathy, regret and more will arise as the substance clears from a person’s system. All of these emotions are compounded by withdrawal effects, which will be monitored by professionals who can assist them in feeling as comfortable as possible.

Our inpatient rehab facility will take the time to unveil the underlying issue that led to the addictive behavior in the first place. A lot of addicts will have a co-occurring disorder like anxiety, depression or an eating disorder. Several mental health issues often relate to addictions. Whether it’s ADHD, a depression disorder, an anxiety disorder or any other kind of issue, inpatient rehab allows for professionals to identify the problems and work on the proper solutions.

Every addict is treated with dignity and respect throughout the rehabilitation process. Addiction is awful and it can take hold of anyone. Every person is worth helping and every person can overcome addiction no matter how far down the path of substance abuse they may be. Therefore, the role of the family who placed a loved one in an inpatient rehab program plays a pivotal role. There’s a definitive need for love and support both while a person is in rehab and when they are finished. This love and support must show that there’s no judgment being passed, just a genuine hope for a happier, healthier life moving forward.

If you or someone you care about has formed a crippling addiction, it’s not too late. Call (866) 308-2090 to learn how our inpatient rehab facility can assist in the rehabilitation process.
