10 Signs You Need a Norcross Area Drug and Alcohol Rehab

Overcoming an addiction to drugs and alcohol is one of the hardest things anybody can be expected to do, and very few people can do it on their own. While you ultimately need to find your own way to overcome your addictions, checking into a North Atlanta area / Norcross drug and alcohol rehab center will almost certainly be involved. Here are ten reasons why you should consider checking into rehab.

1. You Can’t Get Through the Day Without Your Drug of Choice

One of the best ways to determine whether or not you need to check into rehab is not being able to get through the day without drugs and alcohol. Think back to the last time you went an entire day without having a drink or getting high. If you can’t remember the last time, you might have a problem. Even if you’re still “functional,” you may have an addiction that will affect your life if it hasn’t already.

2. You’ve Driven Drunk or High Recently

This should always go without saying, but drinking or doing drugs and getting behind the wheel of a car is always a problem. It is quite possible that the last time (or only time) you’ve done this was just a lapse in judgment, but like the first reason you’ve mentioned, it is a sign that you are developing a serious substance abuse problem if you haven’t developed one already.

3. Your Loved Ones Tell You that You Need Treatment

The people around you often see more than you can see yourself, especially when it comes to drugs and alcohol. If they’ve noticed that you’ve changed due to your drug and alcohol use and tell you that you need treatment, listen to them. Even if you don’t agree with them, they see something in you and are approaching you out of concern.

4. You Frequently Miss Work or School Due to Your Substance Abuse

Many people who are addicted to an illicit substance often let their responsibilities fall by the wayside, and that includes work or school. If you’ve found that you are absent from work or school as often as you are present due to your drug and alcohol use, you have a problem that is interfering with your life. It’s best to seek treatment before you end up in too much trouble with your employer or teachers.

5. You’ve Been Having Financial Difficulties

Financial difficulties can happen for a number of reasons that have nothing to do with drugs and alcohol, but like we’ve said before, addiction often trumps other responsibilities. If you’ve found yourself unable to pay all of your bills and you always feel like you’re broke yet always find that you can buy drugs or alcohol, you might have a problem.

6. Your Doctor Has Warned You of Health Problems that are Directly Related to Your Drug and Alcohol Consumption

Like your family and friends, your doctor can tell you a lot about yourself that you might otherwise miss. If your doctor has warned you of health issues that can be directly tied to your consumption of drugs and alcohol, you should consider seeking treatment even if you don’t feel like you’re addicted. Your health will only continue to get worse if you stick to your current habits.

7. You Experience Withdrawal Symptoms

One surefire way to know if you’ve developed a physical addiction to your drug of choice is to go without it for a while to see if you experience any withdrawal symptoms. You do need to be careful when doing this however, as withdrawal from certain substances can be very dangerous, especially if you’ve been using for a while. If you are going to stop using your drug of choice, you will eventually have to deal with withdrawal symptoms, and the best way to do that is in the safe environment that rehab centers provide.

8. You’ve Experienced Legal Problems Because of Your Substance Abuse

Whether you’ve been arrested for driving under the influence or you face a felony possession charge, having your freedom jeopardized because of your substance abuse should be a definite sign that you have a problem. You might even receive a court order to undergo treatment, but you should still consider it even if you haven’t.

9. You Have Hurt Yourself or Others

Some drugs can increase symptoms of depression and other mental illnesses, which can result in suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Some people have even lost control and seriously hurt others while under the influence, whether they’ve meant to or not. Anybody who is a danger to themselves or others due to their alcohol and drug use should seek treatment as soon as possible for their own safety and the safety of those around them.

10. You Cannot Quit on Your Own

Some people are strong or lucky enough to be able to kick a drug habit on their own, but that isn’t the case for many users. If you’ve tried to quit your drug of choice and found that you cannot, a rehab program might be necessary.

It’s important to remember that you don’t need to be addicted to a substance to check yourself into treatment. North Atlanta area / Norcross drug and alcohol rehab centers are open to anybody who feels like they need help with drugs and alcohol.
