How Do I Know When It’s Time for Rehab?

The first step to knowing it is time for rehab is realizing that you have an addiction. A large portion of Orlando substance users are not willing or able to recognize that they are addicted. They think that there is nothing a treatment center can do that they can’t do themselves. Specific signs can confirm that it is time for rehab. These signs include the following:

  • If you can’t seem to go without your substance of choice, it is time to consider treatment. Not being able to face the day sober means you have become dependent.
  • If you have been convicted of a crime related to drug use, consider rehab.
  • If you have lost employment or loved ones because of substance use, it is time to consider treatment. Nothing should be more important than friends and family.

  • Marital or family troubles are often related to drug use and may be a reason to find rehab.
