What To Do If You Think You Are Too Busy For Rehab

person making time for a rehab program

You have a family, job, school, or other types of responsibilities. You may know that you need some help getting sober, but you don’t know how that is possible. Making time for rehab is a critical factor. It can mean life or death for you. It may even put you in a position where you are putting your health on the line. Our team at Rockland Recovery Treatment Center offers a wide range of options, including an evening intensive outpatient program to support and guide you. There is time for you.

Making Time for Rehab Means Choosing the Right Program

One of the tools that can help you is having a more versatile program. Instead of having to step away from home for months at a time, some people may benefit from simply employing outpatient therapy. We offer a range of options that may meet your needs. This includes:

  • Day partial hospitalization program
  • Day intensive outpatient program
  • Evening intensive outpatient program
  • Men’s specific treatment
  • Women’s specific treatment

In these programs, the amount of time you spend in treatment depends on your needs. We will work with you from day one to create goals and strategies to help you overcome those challenges. What is most important to know is that there is help here.

Still Worried About Time?

Our sober living home in MA aims to be as flexible as possible. Yet, there is still a need and even a responsibility for you to get help. Your health has to come before everything else, or you may not be there to live a life with your family. You may not be able to do your job the way you could or should do it as your condition worsens. Even if you think you have more time right now, the sooner you get treatment, the better your future.

Invest in Support for Your Family

You may need to turn to friends and family to ask for help if you have children. When you do this, you are taking one of the most important steps in your future. You recognize that your health matters not just to you but to your kids.

Consider FMLA Options

If you are working and worrying about being able to get the care you need because you may lose your job, seek out more information about the Family and Medical Leave Act (FLMA). It is designed to help individuals deal with medical needs while their employers hold their positions for them. Your benefits remain in place during this time, too. You can work closely with human resources to help you with this process.

Consider how much better of an employee you will be when you are back if you are making time for rehab. More so, most employers know something is not right when you have an addiction. Asking to take time off to work on it may even save your job.

Get Help from School Support Teams

For college students who may be experiencing the need for treatment, there is help available to you, too. In these situations, you need to reach out to your school’s advisors and guidance counselors to find out what steps you can take to start the healing process. Most will provide you with the support you need to get your health on track and making time for a substance abuse treatment program.

Put Your Time into Your Future at Rockland Recovery Treatment Center

Making time for rehab is possible in most situations. For those with addiction, it is critical. Our team at Rockland Recovery Treatment Center understands just how challenging this can be for you. Yet, we offer you a wide range of solutions you need to thrive. Take the time to learn more about our rehab program in MA and what it can offer to you. Call us at 855.732.4842 today.
