Excuse for Leaving Detox or Rehab Early: I Can Do It On My Own
Getting an addict to go to detox or rehab is a difficult situation. Getting an addict to stay in detox or rehab is even more difficult. There can be many different reasons or excuses why an addict won’t attend or will try to leave early from addiction treatment, and they’re all just a means to one end—not recovering. Here’s a common reason why someone would leave detox or rehab:
Many addicts often think that they can accomplish sobriety on their own. It’s in an addict’s nature to believe that they’re different, smarter, and stronger than other addicts. Addicts get this false belief in their heads and their situation only gets worse. In addiction recovery certain themes often get repeated and sometimes when addicts go through multiple relapses and subsequent treatment stints, they start to hear the same thing and feel like they’re not gaining any new insight. It’s also very common for an addict to develop confidence after a few weeks of staying clean. They’re anxious to get back out into the world because they think they won’t relapse, but the truth of the matter is the numbers are more in your favor with an extended treatment. All of these excuses and beliefs can be countered by an effective addiction recovery program like the ones found at Seabrook House.
