Each year there are plenty of people who find the Holiday Season to be additionally stressful because of substance abuse issues. Since most don’t naturally follow the advice from our previous post, this leaves the majority of them searching for help.
One of the biggest problems surrounding this is that individuals tend to try and wait until after Christmas and New Year’s Day to enter into a treatment program, claiming that they don’t want to be away from their families during this time of the year. However, most of those who need treatment would be doing themselves and their families a favor by getting started at a program and focusing on their recovery. At the same time, family members try and have their loved ones home instead of sending them to treatment, but they would be better off seeking rehabilitation.
The reality is that people don’t have to choose between going now or going later, as there are plenty of local, outpatient options available. For example, people north of Atlanta, GA can come to our program and continue treatment before Christmas and continue on straight through the New Year while also being able to stay at home and enjoy the Holiday Season with friends and family and be sober.
