Don't be Ashamed to Ask for Help
Society is twisted and often encourages people to do unhealthy things while discouraging them from doing the right things. Many people are afraid to seek professional help for their substance abuse problems because 1) their family, peers, or society at large has convinced them that admitting they have a weakness is knock against their dignity, and 2) admitting defeat forces people to look in the mirror and face their problems. The truth is that everybody needs help with something at some point. Accepting that you need help is the most adult-like and mature thing you can do, and it shows that you recognize you have a lot of potentials you're not living up to. It shows you want something better for yourself and your loved ones. Don't be ashamed!
Dealing with Withdrawal
If your substance abuse has gotten to the point that you are experiencing withdrawal symptoms when you go without your drug of choice, it's time to get help - it's beyond time to get help. It's now a matter of life or death. Withdrawal symptoms mean that your body can not function without your substance of choice. Some substances, such as heroin, alcohol, and prescription medicines, are so powerful that people can die when they eliminate the substances from their bodies cold turkey.
How to Know if You Need Detox
Withdrawal symptoms are easy to spot. Withdrawal symptoms range in severity from minor to major. At Serenity Lodge, we recommend that you get professional detoxification treatment for even the most minor symptoms because minor symptoms can be a precursor to major, life-threatening symptoms.
What are the symptoms of drug and alcohol withdrawal?
- Cold sweats
- Increased sweating
- Body/Muscle pain
- Suicidal thoughts
Take the First Step
We believe that seeking detoxification treatment is the first step on the road to recovery. The first step is the most important step because without it there will be no more subsequent steps. After all, a thousand mile journey begins with the first step. Getting clean and detoxifying from drugs and alcohol is the most important thing you can do. Once you have completed clinical detox, you can then enroll yourself into a fine drug and alcohol abuse treatment program, such as Serenity Lodge Lake Arrowhead.
