The Power of Acceptance: Embracing Change for a Brighter Future
I’m actually really scared of going to rehab. I’ve watched the news, I know about the epidemic of overdoses and the subsequent explosion of drug rehabs. Especially the rehabs in Florida and New York with the owners in handcuffs. These characters seem really sketchy! I know an addict is an addict is an addict, but I don’t want to be living with smokers and I don’t want to be ‘doing chores’ in some institution. Help!
Many alcohol abusers conclude they need to stop drinking while things are still pretty good in their lives. Maybe a parent or other family member is demonstrating what happens when an alcohol abuser continues abusing alcohol. The bottom for an alcoholic is when the alcoholic stops digging. It is always an advantage if this is a ‘high-bottom’. There is no real definition for ‘high-bottom’ or ‘low-bottom’. It is subjective of course. If you still have a job or career, a spouse and children that will talk to you, a house, car or you still well-care for and exercise your dog, you could call that ‘high-bottom’.
Yes, I need help. When I try to stop on my own, I can’t. I’m a private person, I don’t like big groups. I love nature. I don’t want to be in a coop of some dormitory, in with a rough crowd smelling of stale tobacco.
There is an alternative to crowded Insurance-Dictated Rehab. In fact, your copay for the rehab your Insurance Company covers may be more than the full payment in a good, private, self-pay treatment. When the rehab business is showing more concern about pleasing Insurance Companies, CEO’s and board members, your personal recovery needs come second. Private-pay, independent rehab may offer the breath of fresh air and respectful individuality you need to recover.
I’ve never been one to follow the crowds. I don't want my rehab stay to be recorded in some governmental agency. I love travel and I love the tropics. How do I know if an Independent Rehab is good quality?
Great question. You know about due diligence, or you wouldn’t be as successful in the other areas of your life. The best way to assess is to call and speak directly to one of the counselors. If you call private rehab in Panama, you will not be talking to ‘Intake’ or a smooth talking marketer. You’ll know by the feeling in your gut if the person is genuine and wants the best for you, not for them. Read the reviews. See where the reviews come from, are they legitimate? Does this rehab cater to high-bottom alcohol abusers or are they more focused on government assisted treatment for lower-bottom addicts?In the end, it is a leap of faith, but you know how to do that.
