The rehab process is not the only tool in your arsenal when it comes to battling alcohol and drug addiction. Several organizations and resources exist to help make the process manageable for you. It won’t be easy, but you can be prepared and not alone when you have resources at your disposal. This can range from databases of rehab centers, informational studies, and the latest science on substance abuse. Even the Suicide Prevention Hotline is there for those who fear they may have the urge to end their life.
Below are just some of the resources available to you. At an alcohol rehab center, the goal is to help you reach that place where you can feel comfortable and happy in your own skin. Take a look at these resources below and don’t hesitate to get into contact with us about how we can help you best tackle the battle of addiction.
National Institute on Drug Abuse
This organization is a federal research institute whose mission is to advance the research, science, and knowledge we have about addiction and how it can affect your life. They offer several helpful pieces of literature through their website as well as services on the nature of addiction, the underlying causes of it, and case studies as they have worked to fill the gaps of knowledge on what makes addiction happen. They also have information for those seeking information on rehab or counseling for addiction.
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
This is a branch of the US Department of Health and Human Services that keeps a detailed list of all inpatient, outpatient, and hospital rehabilitation facilities for those looking to be free of their addiction. They can help you narrow your search to your immediate location or another desired location. This helps in the process of finding the right rehab center that can derail someone due to the hassle.
The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
This is perhaps one of the most important resources you could have available to you. Memorize or write down the number, 1-800-273-8255. This is especially important if you ever suspect you may be having suicidal thoughts, a fear of injuring yourself, or another person. This hotline will get you on the phone with a trained representative who can talk you through a crisis and help you find support and assistance in your area. You will find 24/7 service through this hotline at over 160 crisis centers across the country.
Faces & Voices of Recovery
