What’s the point of a stabilization program if the rehab is already over? Well nobody’s perfect, and in the process of your recovery treatment, there’s bound to be a few bumps and turns in the road. But just because you stumble a little bit doesn’t mean that your rehab failed. Like anything in life, there’s a learning curve, and it might be that you’re just on the verge of success right at the moment when you’re sure you’ll fail. You’ve got to stick with it in order to fully recovery, and that’s what a stabilization program is for.
What do you do if your insurance company says you only qualify for rehab after an extended period of substance abuse or drug addiction? This is exactly what the stabilization program was made for. It’s not the same thing as a full-out rehab program. Stabilization is specifically designed for people who have completed their rehab, but need some follow-up treatment to get them back on track. When you’re in danger of a relapse, it’s essential to stay positive, but also to own up to your shortcoming and get involved in a stabilization program. Here’s some more information on relapse prevention.
You finished your rehab and you were feeling on top of the world, but then you got overwhelmed and fell back into drug or substance use. You could pity yourself, and remove yourself from your loved ones, because of the embarrassment of backsliding—and enter the slippery slope back to addiction. But you’re only hurting yourself and your loved ones by doing that. Don’t let your pride get in the way of your recovery. Take pride when you’re doing well, then have enough humility to admit when you need more help along the way. Banyan Treatment Center understands what you’re going through. See how our stabilization program can help.
When is the right time to take the plunge into a stabilization program?
