Finding Help for Addiction Problems in Armagh

This is why it can be so important for these individuals to seek out some help. If you are ready to end your addiction problems, we are here to help you. Call us right now on 0800 140 4824 to discover the options available to you in County Armagh.

The Dangers of Going It Alone In Recovery

  • There are certainly some fine examples of people who didn’t need much help but still managed to build a good life after addiction. These individuals are inspiration, but there are certainly many dangers of going it alone in recovery including:
  • Many substance abusers will already have a history of failed attempts at getting sober without any help. Every time that they fail, it can further reduce their self-efficacy thus making it harder to stop the next time. It is also worth remembering the truism that if people keep on doing the same things, they will tend to keep getting the same results. In order to break away from addiction the individual probably needs to do something different, and this will usually mean getting help for their addiction problems.
  • A common reason for why people do not want addiction help is that they are not fully committed to recovery. This person is ambivalent, and they still hold onto the hope that they will one day be able to drink or use drugs safely again. By getting addiction help, they will usually be expected to commit to lifelong abstinence, and this is not something that they want to do. In some ways, they can be reluctant to choose recovery help because they are afraid it might work.
  • One of the main dangers of going it alone is that the individual may manage to become physically sober, but this does not mean that they are going to have that much better of a life going forward. The person could become a dry drunk (this equally applies to recovering drug users) where they are physically sober, but they still behave as if they were in the midst of addiction. The reality is that the individual needs to do more than just stop drinking or using drugs. They need to deal with the problems that drove them into addiction in the first place, and to do this they will usually need some type of addiction help.
  • · The most common reason for why people relapse after a period of recovery is that they feel unable to cope with life. The individual will have been using alcohol or drugs to deal with things, and when this is taking away they now have noting. It is the goal of rehab to provide the person with effective coping strategies, so that they can more easily deal with life in the future.
  • When people go it alone, they will be without support and encouragement from people who share their goals. This can make it difficult for them to make it through the hard times.
