There is a reason why there is a very famous quote when it comes to dealing with an addictive personality. The key is to only try to handle one day at a time. When you start to contemplate what could or would go wrong in the future, the “what-ifs” are endless. If you are considering an alcohol rehabilitation in Arizona the only thing you should be seriously considering in this important step is if you are doing it for the right reasons.
Perhaps you love someone or your family member wants you to get help. While that is encouraging that you have not burned the bridges of support, it is important to know that you need to do this for yourself and not for anyone else. The problem with looking into a rehabilitation center for a way to make someone happy is that you are continuing a line of emotional dependency as opposed to being independent in this situation. If you fail, or if the person fails you, you will blame the other person instead of taking responsibility for your own actions. You may be justified in blaming someone else for your dependency but it is you who are still using.
Not to take away from the incredible and life changing event that could accompany your time in an Arizona alcohol rehab, but if you need help, it should be your decision. In this first important step you may become more honest with yourself than you have ever been. You may start to figure out that the real problem wasn’t necessarily the dependency on a chemical so much as what your reasons were for the chemical in the first place.
If you are serious, start researching different rehabs. At this point it may be important to consider length-of-stay requirements as well as costs but go with one you believe you have a chance to succeed in. Look for health insurance coverage’s, state-funded plans and even your local social service organizations.
Lastly, ask for help in preparing for your journey. If at all possible ask for a leave of absence for personal reasons from a job or other committments. Get family members or friends to watch your home, mail and other personal matters. This will also help in rounding up a good support team that will help you through this journey.
