A residential drug treatment center is defined by its ability to offer you sanctuary from drugs and alcohol. It is defined by its ability to offer you a safe, structured environment in which you will progress through your recovery. A residential drug treatment center may be your best chance at achieving lasting sobriety, because you may not be strong enough to recover with outpatient programs. You may need a residential drug treatment center so that you do not run back to drugs when your rehabilitation process seems too tough. You may need the constant support and care this type of center offers.
What we want you to know is that you are not the only one to need residential drug treatment. Many other addicts cannot recover from home with outpatient treatments. This is why at The Watershed, our staff members are dedicated to your comfort and recovery. If this is what you need to recover, call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768.
You may have some misconceptions about needing residential drug treatment, because you do not understand addiction. You may feel as if you have the worst type of addiction, because you need to enroll in residential drug treatment or that your family is trying to hide you. You may even feel as if you are facing some type of punishment because you have to move into a center. All of these things are incorrect. Just because you need residential drug treatment to reach recovery does not mean anything negative or bad. It simply means that you have different addiction needs then the people who can reach recovery at home with outpatient programs. You are, in fact, a unique person and this means that you have a very unique addiction. You may need the combination of outpatient and residential drug treatment to reach sobriety.
We want you to realize that at our residential drug treatment facility, The Watershed, treatment is nothing more than an offering of help. You are not enrolling in treatment to be punished but rather to be helped. At The Watershed, you will be helped in every way possible. If you want to recovery with comfortable amenities in a treatment center with a small number of enrolled guests, call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768.
The misconceptions you may have had about needing residential drug treatment may have caused you to fear it. Moreover, knowing that your entire life is going to change by enrolling in residential drug treatment may cause you to fear it even more. What you need to do is learn how to move past your fear into treatment or at least not let your fear prevent you from recovering. Many times, this fear is not about recovery in a residential drug treatment center. Many times this fear originates from the not knowing exactly what is going to happen. It is a fear of not knowing what your life will consist of when you have reached sobriety. However, this fear can be turned into determination. You can focus your energy on looking past what you do not know and on what you do know and those fears will begin to fade. Those fears can begin to transition into a determination to overcome your addiction.
At The Watershed, you do not have to fear the unknown, because we keep you informed from the moment you call us at 1-800-861-1768.
Once you have learned to move past your fear and into your residential drug treatment, you can reach sobriety. However, as with anything, there is a catch. In order for sobriety to be an option for you, there are a few things you need to know. It does not matter if you are attending outpatient or residential drug treatment, you will have to work towards sobriety. Nothing as serious as addiction will be easy to overcome. Moreover, you will have to truly want sobriety. A residential drug treatment center only offers you a safe haven from drugs and the tools you need to reach sobriety. It is still entirely up to you to use the tools to change your habits and life. You have to face physical withdrawal. You have to face the emotional and mental pain of what your addiction has done in your life. You will have to learn how to live again. See the common denominator: you.
What you need to know now is that life following your residential drug treatment may not be what you expected. Sure, you will not have as many stresses, because you will be sober. Yes, you will have a life of sobriety to look forward to. However, you will also need to start putting the pieces of your life back together that was broken by your addiction. You will have to continue rebuilding those relationships that were hurt and almost lost because of your drugs. You will, essentially, have to relearn to live without drugs being the main focus. What the residential treatment center did for you is give you the tools and strength to do these things. Life following your residential treatment may not be as easy as you would think, but it will be much better then when you were using.
