Addiction is a condition that shouldn’t be taken for granted of. It may start with small and petty symptoms but when ignored, a person with addiction may not only be harmful to itself but to others as well. People with addiction are mostly out of control that they ended up in very difficult and embarrassing circumstances. There is no other recommendation for such situation but confinement in rehabilitation centers. Yet despite the experience, the recommendations and warning, still, there are patients who choose not to submit themselves to the said centers.
The Fear of Being Judged
It is quite natural for people to have big egos. And admitting that they have a problem is like flushing their prides into the toilet. By nature, people wants to project the best image of himself possible to others and being a patient in a rehabilitation center is not a big help in anyone’s portfolio. With this, some choose to treat their selves on their own rather go to addiction treatment centers for proper treatment. They keep their condition a secret to avoid being judged by others.
Too Important to Take a Break
Some people with addiction refuse to get treatment from addiction centers because they have important rules in their backs. This is true for those who are working as an executive, a manager or even a mother. Their rules are so important that being away for a while for confinement is a huge setback to people close to them. Such people choose a less rigid treatment that will not take them away from their responsibilities.
Fear of Being Away
The loved ones cannot bear the fact of the patient being away for a while. There is that guilt feeling or that sense of abandonment that kept some from submitting their patients into rehabilitation centers. Most would find other ways to treat their patient rather have them committed in institutions for quite some time. They just want to treat the patient themselves, though it may be difficult but the fact that they can see the patient every day is more than enough reason for them not to seek for proper rehabilitation treatment.
These are just some of the reasons why not all addiction patients get the proper care. Despite the sophisticated facilities, modern techniques and therapies, still some would not accept the idea. Whatever their reason may be, still addiction patients should be treated properly. There are stages in addiction treatment and each should be addressed properly, and only the rehabilitation center can provide that care for these patients.
