Searching for Denton Treatment Facilities
If you’re looking for a Denton drug rehab, you’re not alone. According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, almost 55,000 of the 23.5 million people who live in Texas were looking for treatment for drug and/or alcohol addiction in 2006. The big issue is not the number of people who are in need of medical detox and psychotherapeutic care but the even larger number of people who require drug rehab – but don’t enroll. It is estimated that only 10 percent of those who are living with an active drug dependence get the help they need.

A Guide to Being Admitted Into a Rehab Facility
How do you know if you need to enroll in a drug addiction treatment center in Denton? It’s not an easy question to answer. When you are living with an addiction, your mind can be clouded by the substances you use – it’s the nature of the disease. However, there are some objective changes in your life that can indicate that it’s time to seek professional help when it comes to addiction treatment. Some of these signs include:
- Losing ground at work or at school. In some cases – in fact, in many cases – it means getting fired or dropping out of school due to your inability to keep up with your commitments.
- Drowning in debt. When you don’t have a job and every bit of money you can get is spent on drugs and alcohol, it’s easy to use credit cards and loans to pay basic bills. With no means to repay the debt, you can find yourself in over your head financially in a few short months.
- Experiencing depression or anxiety. It may be induced by your drug of choice, it may be an underlying issue that is exacerbated by drug or alcohol abuse, or it may be a symptom of discontent with the way your life has changed. In many cases, the mental health issues will require treatment at the same time you get care for addiction.
- Loss of identity. No goals, no hobbies, few real friends and connections with others – it’s easy to lose yourself in addiction.
