Myths about Addiction and Recovery

There are some myths about recovery that keeps people trapped indefinitely. Here are some of the once that can be the most lethal should people believe them:


Myth One – You Have to Hit Rock Bottom in Order to Break Away From Addiction

The problem here is not so much that the claim is wrong, but that it is often completely misunderstood. It is true that most of those individuals who break away from addiction do so after hitting rock bottom. The misunderstanding occurs because people can start to view this as some special place within the addiction process. There is no objective rock bottom, and if the individual continues to wait for one, the only rock bottom they will hit will be death. It is up to the individual to decide when they have had enough of alcohol or drugs, and this will be their rock bottom.


Myth Two – Rehab is Too Hard

It is true that the individual will likely be challenged during their time in rehab, but they will never be asked to do more than what they are capable of doing. Going to rehab is not like going to some type of prison unless the individual wants to make it like that. The person is likely to find that as well as the difficult challenges there will also be plenty of fun and laughter during their stay. The only people who find rehab really hard are the ones who really do not want to be there in the first place.


Myth Three – Rehab is Only for the Most Serious Cases (… or celebrities)

The reality is that people of all levels of addiction can benefit from this type of treatment. It also needs to be understood that those who are dealing with addiction will tend to underestimate their problem greatly. If the person continues with the behaviour it really can destroy their life and eventually kill them – it does not get much more serious than this. It is just the denial that is telling the person that their problems are not serious.


Myth Four – I Will Quit My Addiction Later

Even when people are able to see how addiction is destroying life, they can still feel like they have all the time in the world to sort this problem out. This is a dangerous way of thinking because if the individual feels unwilling to quit now, there is no reason to think that they will become more ready to quit later. In fact, the individual may find it much harder to quit later than it would be if they tried to quit now.
