Reach out to our expert and seek help.
- Illness: If you stop use and you feel sick after, it’s a sign you may be addicted.
- Increased Use: If it takes more alcohol or drugs to reach the high you’re looking for, it’s another sign that you may be addicted.
- Erratic Behavior: Some of those struggling with addiction hide their abuse from family and friends. They also tend to seek more privacy than normal. These behavioral changes may be signs of substance abuse addiction.
- Neglecting Responsibilities: Those struggling with addiction can get so tangled up in their abuse that it becomes their top priority. Substance abusers can shirk family obligations and work responsibilities. Abuse also results in poor performance at work, which can lead to unemployment and more hardship for the family.

The Difficulty Of Asking For Help
Some substance abusers are in denial of their addiction and would prefer to continue their abuse and all the pain it brings instead of reaching out to ask for help. Here are some of the top reasons those struggling use to avoid seeking treatment:
- They don’t want to quit.
- They aren’t ready to stop using.
- They have no health insurance.
- They can’t afford treatment, and are unaware of free state programs.
- They are concerned about adverse effects on their family or job that may arise from their enrolling in treatment.
- They don’t have the faith or confidence in their ability to conquer addiction.
Effective Treatment Programs
Once a recovering addict completes detox, they begin their rehabilitation. There are many therapy options available to recovering addicts. The most effective of these is an inpatient treatment program. Inpatient therapy is medically managed care in a 24-hour, live-in facility.
Outpatient treatment is for those who are unable to enroll in inpatient care. Outpatient is beneficial for people who cannot travel to another location for therapy due to family or career obligations. In-patient care in a new location can allow an addict to get away from people that may contribute to their use.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is another effective form of treatment. CBT focuses on awareness of how drugs and alcohol impact a user’s life, as well as how they impact those around them. In CBT, substance abusers also learn coping skills that teach them how to tolerate situations that would tempt them to use.
Individual and group therapy are also popular in a treatment program. Individual care is one-on-one, and group care is a setting where recovering addicts can share their experiences with their peers in a way that facilitates healing and growth. Family therapy is focused on repairing relationships that have been damaged through a substance abuser’s addiction.
Additional therapies offered include equine, music, yoga, and art classes. You can call us at any time for more information on available therapies throughout Oklahoma.
