As the number of people who are addicted to prescription drugs continues to rise, the government watches over the use and abuse of drugs in each state, hoping to spot areas in which the usage of drugs seems to be out of control. In 2000, Missouri was listed among the 17 states that had an above-average consumption of prescription painkillers, according to the National Criminal Justice Reference Service. This statistic highlights the need for good Lee’s Summit drug rehab programs.
Addictions to painkillers, or any other drugs, can be hard to handle alone, but treatment could allow you to take control of your life once more.
Tips on Going to a Rehab Clinic
Lee’s Summit addiction treatment programs typically begin when detoxification programs end. This means you’ll have no drugs or alcohol circulating in your body, but you might still be dealing with the temptation to use once more. In rehab, you’ll learn how to control those temptations and stay sober for the rest of your life. You can prepare for this hard work by:
- Thinking about when you started using drugs
- Keeping notes about how often you use, and how much you use
- Writing down notes about why you want to get clean
- Asking your friends and family members for support
When you enroll in a rehab clinic, you’ll have plenty of information to discuss with your therapist, and your friends and family members will understand that you’re committed to making these changes stick.
If you maintain contact with friends who still take drugs, they may tempt you from time to time. Your therapist can help you develop a series of short, but effective, statements you can use when your friends pressure you to use.
