Taking drug rehabilitation seriously...

The hardest step when dealing with a personal issue or a family member struggling with the need for drug rehab is that real acknowledgment that there is a problem. Denial is a huge part of the problem for not only the individual dealing with the drug problem but for family members as well. Often times when the admission that there is a problem has finally been made there is a feeling of false security that it will be able to be solved. Unfortunately, that next hurdle of finding help can be a huge issue and it can very well be the difference between that person receiving help and their falling back into their previous lifestyle.

It's understandable that people don't want to admit to others they have a problem which decreases their chance of finding who in your area can help. That makes places like all the more important since they can provide resources in a confidential manner to help you or a loved one get the help they need.

I really enjoyed reading your post. It hit home for me, as my husband and I were in complete denial about our son's drug addiction. After five years of hell, I spoke with an amazing intake counselor at Narconon Vista Bay What happened after this was nothing short of amazing. My son opened up for the first time in five years. He completed the Narconon Vista Bay Program and is now working with my husband and for the first time in a long time we are all happy.
