Addiction lies to you. When you’re battling addiction (or when someone you care about is fighting with addiction) the brain can come up with seemingly millions of reasons not to go to rehab. “I don’t really have a problem,” “I have it under control,” “I’m going to quit,” and so forth are some of the most common ones. However, there are other misconceptions and untruths that people may have about a detox in Los Angeles. Someone is available to take your calls to let you know the truth about rehab.
Recovery Sure Isn’t Boring
Sometimes, when addicts think of a recovery facility, they imagine something like a prison: bland walls, little sunlight, and a lot of time inside. Carus Recovery is essentially the opposite. Here, our facility is by beaches, hiking trails, and all kinds of outdoor beauty. Our recovery center was built to provide an atmosphere of healing. That way, you (or someone you care about) can be in an environment that promotes healing with every step.
Not As Many People Go to Detox as You Think
“Oh, everyone in LA goes to detox and rehab, but no one ever sticks with it.” That’s empirically wrong. Depending on the study you read, roughly ten percent of addicts end up going to rehab. Some studies have found that 34 out of 35 alcoholics never receive any kind of treatment. Yes, some people do relapse after they leave a facility. However, we can speak from experience; people do make it all of the time. It has been incredible to watch people come to Carus Recovery, go through detox, rehab, and then go off to lead the healthy, sober lives that they wanted to.
Recovery Facilities are not all the Same
“If you’ve seen one recovery facility,” your addiction might tell you, “you’ve seen them all.” Maybe you tried detox and recovery once, but you relapsed, or it just didn’t work out for you. That doesn’t mean you’ve failed. Moreover, it certainly doesn’t mean that it’s impossible for recovery to succeed. You can still lead a happy, healthy sober life. At Carus Recovery, our team of experienced, compassionate counselors has helped people from all walks of life. Many are in rehab for the first time. However, many have tried before, looking for something else that works. We can be that option.
A Detox in Los Angeles is a Lifelong Process
Once you’re sober, that’s just the beginning. Too many facilities and treatments focus on just getting a person sober, without dealing with any of the underlying issues that caused the addiction in the first place. At Carus Recovery, we focus on the heart of the addiction itself: the issues and questions that created and sustained it. We want you to be sober, yes, but we want you to find joy in everyday life, too. Our long-term care supports you at every stage of the process so that you can break the cycle of addiction for good.
