Why people fail the addiction treatments?
Get a Second Chance in Life
Addiction is definitely one of the most challenging afflictions that professional counselors deal with. Patterns created by addiction can do permanent change to the chemical system of a person. This also affects the structures of family and support systems, making the recovery process even more complicated and difficult.
Treatment is not a walk in the park, it is seldom easy. This is why a lot of people fail.. Aside from it being a challenging condition within itself, here are the common reasons why people fail the treatment:
- Ambivalence – People who are not 100% sold out to the idea of being sober have higher tendencies of failing. They may see the benefits, but they still have reservations, holding on to their old ways that give them pleasure.
- Unwillingness – One, people who are unwilling to admit to themselves that they need help will not have the will power or motivation to move forward. Two, unwillingness to open up to others. Some people do not want to reach out because they think it is a sign of weakness and puts them in a vulnerable position. Three, unwillingness to cooperate and participate in the treatment itself. Nobody else can do it for you but yourself.
- Fear – People who undergo treatment will have to go through huge lifestyle changes, making this kind of transition a source of fear. The uncertainty of the future makes them choose to stay as they are, rather than doing something new, and facing the possibility of failure.
- Lack of Support – People who undergo treatment for any kind of addiction need all the support they can get. Significant others and close members of the family showing their support gives the person assurance and confidence, thereby motivating them to take a straight path.
