Getting Clean: 8 Signs That You’re Truly Ready To Go To Rehab

Are you considering going to rehab for your drug addiction?

If you’re suffering from drug addiction, you know firsthand how challenging it is to accept that you may need help. The truth is, making the decision to go to rehab can be intimidating for the majority of addicts.

It’s common for addicts to feel a sense of fear and unease in going to rehab. Some addicts may also experience feelings of shame or humiliation in accepting that their drug use has become problematic. Either way, it’s safe to say that making the decision to go to rehab isn’t exactly an easy one.

If you’ve been going back and forth in your decision to attend rehab, you’re going to want to read this. We’re uncovering eight tell-tale signs that mark that you’re truly ready to go to rehab.

1. You Want Help

First and foremost, you have decided that you want help.

You’re no longer considering getting help due to pressure from friends and family. Instead, you have come to a point in your addiction where you are finally ready to accept help and begin your path to sobriety.

When you decide that you’re ready, your chances of success are much greater.

2. You’ve Noticed Your Health Deteriorating

One of the most telling signs of being ready for rehab is outlined in how you view your health.

In the beginning stages, many addicts believe that their overall health is not affected by their drug use. Instead, the addict may feel that taking care of their body through exercise and proper nutrition erases the negative effects.

As an addict progresses further into their drug use, it becomes clear that this is not the case. It’s only then that an addict is able to witness firsthand the true effects of their drug use.

3. You’re Ready to Correct Your Relationships

There’s no denying that even your most prioritized relationships suffer when you’re coping with drug addiction.

This is because feeding your drug addiction often becomes the most important obligation in your life. As a result, your relationships take a back seat and your mind is unable to maintain your relationships.

If you have a true desire to correct these relationships and allow them to become your number one priority, this is a sign that you may be ready to go to rehab. The fact that you now long to better your relationships and reconnect with the people in your life shows that you’re ready for change.

4. You Have an Upcoming Milestone

Do you have an up and coming milestone in your life?

Perhaps this is the birth of your child and you’re getting ready to be a first-time parent. Or, maybe you’ve been promoted to a superior position within the workplace.

Whatever your milestone may be, it’s safe to say that major milestones require you to be the best version of yourself. In these significant moments, it’s going to be challenging to be present if you’re being weighed down by your drug addiction.

5. You’re Tired of Feeling Anxious and Depressed

Are you tired of feeling down all the time?

There’s no denying that drug use and depression often go hand-in-hand. In fact, one-third of adults who have a substance abuse problem also suffer from depression.

As it turns out, these feelings of sadness may be what you need to turn over a new leaf. One of the most common turning points toward recovery is becoming fed up with being anxious and depressed. If you’ve reached a point where you’re no longer interested in feeling so negative, this may be a sign that you’re ready to change your life.

6. You Recognize the Need for Professional Help

The truth is, many addicts that enter recovery have attempted to quit beforehand.

The main difference is the majority of these people have only tried to quit at their own discretion. In doing so, they have failed to seek professional help and support in their attempt toward sobriety.

If you’re considering going to rehab, it’s because you’ve come to terms with the fact that your addiction may require professional help. You now understand that getting clean on your own schedule is likely to result in failure.

This is not something to feel embarrassed by or ashamed of. Getting professional help and engaging in treatments such as detox have proven to be effective in maintaining your sobriety.

7. You’re Ready for a Change

When you’re in the depths of drug addiction, your enthusiasm for life and your motivation levels are impacted.

Your mind becomes satisfied with living a life that is centered upon your drug of choice. As you progress further into your drug use, you become comfortable with your routine and new way of life. While it may seem thrilling at first, this lifestyle will soon prove to be harmful and poisonous.

The moment in which you realize that you’re ready for a change is telling. When this change takes place in your mind, it may be time to commit to rehab and change your life.

8. You Understand the Severity of Your Addiction

Have you finally come to a point where you understand the gravity of your addiction?

Throughout the cycle of addiction, it’s only natural to assume that your drug use doesn’t constitute addiction. Many users like to think of their addiction as a casual, unimportant feature of their lives.

However, when you finally come to terms with the reality of the situation, this is an important moment. It shows that you’re being honest with yourself and the fact that you may be controlled by your drug use. When this moment of realization finally presents itself, it’s a telling sign that you’re ready for change.

Real Client Testimonials

  • Before coming to coastal I was hopeless, helpless, and my family wanted nothing to do with me. It wasn’t the first detox I’d ever been to, but it was the only one who showed me so much love and compassion. They gave me hope. It’s hard to put into words the amount of gratitude I have for this facility. The employees were my family when I had none. The staff went out of their way to make sure not only were my physical needs taken care of, but my emotional needs as well. From the first phone call prior to admission, to helping me set up continuing care, they never missed a beat. Even going as far as to help me with my legal issues via Zoom court. This isn’t just a detox, they are the family I never had. All of the techs, especially Karen, are phenomenal. They will take the time to listen to you, laugh, and cry(if needed) with you. If you are reading this and you or your loved one is suffering like I was, go to Coastal Detox. The level of care is more than I could ever put into a review. It wasn’t the first detox I’d been to, but it has been my last; I owe them everything I have today, including my life.

  • Had a really good experience at Coastal. The staff really went above and beyond in helping me get in and gave me the respect l, space and care I needed after I first got there. As I started to fell better they encouraged me to take part in groups which helped get me out of my head and bring positivity and health to my thinking. They had a great massage therapist, who came daily and it was evident the nursing staff genuinely cared. Got to know some of the staff as well and I’m grateful for the cooks Joe and Chris. Those guys literally made us sirloins and pork chops for dinner. Also I gotta thank Chris and Chris for helping me get in and setting me up with a transition plan. Real grateful for that help, I’m not sure if it’s management intention to hire guys named Chris but they got a good thing going there. Overall, I’m clean and sober today and walking it out. Coastal gave me a base that set me up for the success that I’m walking in today

  • My family is very thankful for Coastal Detox. They have went above and beyond for my son a few times. Unfortunately he has needed their help more than once and they have ever turned their back on him, even when he was at his worst. Jeannie and Chris have been amazing and kept me informed through the entire process. They truly care about the addict and want to help them especially when it would be easy to give up on them. I had many detox facilities be rude and uncaring to me when I was searching for help for my son, but Coastal never did that to us. I don't know the names of all the team members that have helped my son but I know their are many and y'all are angels!! One day we will be able to pay it forward and help someone as you have helped us. Thank you for all you do!!

  • Can not say enough nice things about Coastal Detox & staff. Family member was there, told me five stars for the facility & all whom she interacted with. Said the facilities, ambience..., cleanliness, grounds, food, (think their chef is five stars), were all top shelf. All I interacted with personally & on the phone were patient, professional, responsive & caring. Kudos to so many: Jeannie Jones, Clinical Director whom I spent the most face to face time with: great oversight, patience & follow thru. Raquel Barker, Therapist was so understanding & on spot with her assessments/care. Kris Garrigus Admissions Director, another Coastal professional whom I cannot say enough nice things about, always so patient & responsive to my probably too frequent inquires. Not to be forgotten is Judy Tucker, Director of Operations she too so patiently "put up with me"
    I highly recommend Coastal Detox
