“I don’t have time to go to rehab”.
Many times one of the first reasons for not going to drug and alcohol treatment is time. “I can’t leave my business, children, or pet for 30 days”. We totally get it. However, we also remind the person with ‘Time’ as an excuse that if they don’t take the time to end the addiction, there can be much worse consequences than just a temporary absence. Examples are hospitalization, incarceration and, perhaps, even death.
These are all too real for many who don’t seek treatment for their addiction or who might try and fail due to not receiving the proper treatment at other places. At Bayshore Retreat we try to help clients with some of the reasons. Work, for example, can be handled while at Bayshore if it can be done via telephone, email or faxes. Childcare; parents are able to ‘tuck their children in at night’ via phone or Facetime… likewise they can help children with issues that might come up while mom or dad are away.
Unlike many drug and alcohol treatment centers who believe that isolation is the best answer to “getting into oneself”, Bayshore Retreat believes that life goes on while in treatment, just as it does out of treatment. Allowing clients to ‘stay in touch’ helps families and individuals deal with the absence while also dealing with the addiction. by Judy, (the mom) Sept. 25, 2014
