]Alcohol abuse affects the lives of more than half the population in the U.S. and while millions make the decision to seek detox assistance, millions more never do for several reasons, but these 5 are at the top of the list. If you are struggling with alcohol abuse and you need detox, do not let another reason stand in the way and prevent you from getting the help you need and being able to take back control of your life.
1.Detox is too expensive
Detox is affordable and most detox centers accept insurance. If you do not have insurance, no problem, a vast majority of detox companies work with finance companies, which will make it possible to pay off the cost of detoxification service over several months. Many detox centers have a sliding scale fee for individuals that are in financial need and many others offer scholarships to help cover a portion of the cost of detox.
2.What will my friends and family think
If you are worried that your friends and family will think less of you for getting help with your alcohol abuse, imagine what they will think if you do not. For people who are barely holding it together, going into alcohol detox is a step in the right direction and will let those who love you most that you are serious about addressing your problem and taking care of your family.
3.But I have responsibilities at home
Alcohol detox will last a few days to a little over a week, depending on the extent of your alcohol abuse. An inpatient alcohol detox, like the medical detox program at Gallus Detox Centers, will give you time to rest and recuperate, and get you ready to return to your responsibilities and your new life. In order for you to be the best you can be, you need to first, get better.
4.My job is too important
Our jobs are important to us; however, if your alcohol abuse continues and things start to fall apart, it is only a matter of time before your job starts to fall apart as well. By getting the help you need in detox, you may be saving your career. Getting your health back is the most important thing.
5.I’m scared from all the stories I’ve heard about detox
Fear can prevent us from accomplishing many things. You may be worried that you are not sure what to expect. You may be worried that it may hurt or that the withdrawal symptoms may be too difficult to deal with or that it will be painful. Or you may be worried about what happens next after detox.
