Warning: You’re Losing Money By Not Going To RehabOctober 9, 2015 - Treatment - 0 Comments
At one of our rehabilitation centers, we can help a recovering alcoholic or drug addict save money. It is expensive to drink excessive amounts of alcohol or use drugs in more ways than one. The actual cost of buying illegal or prescription drugs leads many abusers to steal or max out credit cards. Alcohol consumption on a daily basis is also expensive no matter whether you drink at home or in bars.
Substance Abuse Can Lead to Long-Term Expensive Illnesses
Paying for bottles of liquor and pills in order to use the substances is not the only expense because addiction frequently leads to health problems that require hospitalization and long-term treatment. Some of the health problems caused by drug or alcohol abuse include:
- Cirrhosis of the liver
- Damaging blood vessels and the heart
- Stomach ulcers
- Kidney damage
Drug Addiction and Alcoholism can lead to a Job Loss or Arrest
Our rehabilitation centers also work with clients just like you who have been denied or lost a job due to failing a routine drug test. In addition, if you drive while or after drinking alcohol or using drugs, then an accident might occur that leads to vehicular damage or personal injuries for you or passengers. After an accident, a drug test will reveal your level of intoxication, leading to an arrest and conviction for breaking the law.
The next time you are considering entering a detoxification program and rehabilitation program take time to look at the overall cost of the facility long with the time spent in recovery. While you might think that paying for a 30 to 90 day stay in a facility that is highly recommended because of its success rate is too expensive, the cost of not entering rehabilitation is more expensive.
Friends and Family Members May Not Want to Associate With You
There is a good chance that your substance abuse has also cost you relationships with family members or friends who simply are unable to associate with an addict or drunk on a daily basis. While these friends and family members probably still care about you, unless you spend time on recovery, the relationships will not be mended.
