Getting Started on Your Journey Toward Recovery
Oftentimes the first step on your journey toward recovery is the hardest, but the most important nonetheless. If you're unsure where to start, we're here to guide you along the way.
Confide in Someone You Trust
The first step toward recovery and wellness is acknowledging that you have a problem and that you may need others' love and support to help you through it. Although struggling with drug or alcohol addiction can feel like an isolating experience, the people who care about you are often receptive and willing to help you to find the treatment you need.
Whether you have a close friend, family member, or mentor that you trust—reach out and talk to them about what you’re experiencing.
Call an Addiction Hotline or Counselor
Sometimes it may be difficult or embarrassing to confide in the people around you, but being able to vent about your troubles can prove to be cathartic. If you feel like you're struggling with addiction but you're unsure who to turn to, you may find it helpful to reach out to a counselor or even try calling an addiction hotline to get your thoughts out.
Here are a few different addiction hotlines that you can give a try:
- SAMHSA National Helpline: 1-800-662-4357
- Crisis Text Line: Text HOME to 741741
- National Drug Helpline: 1-844-289-0879
- National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-888-628-9454
- National Alliance on Mental Illness HelpLine: 1-800-950-6264
- Partnership for Drug-Free Kids: 1-855-378-4373
Reach out to a Treatment Center
If you’re struggling with addiction and you feel that you may benefit from seeking treatment, you can reach out to rehab facilities to see what treatment options they may offer. It is important to keep in mind that you don’t have to go with the first treatment center you find; you can ask for more information to see what options out there may be right for you and your unique situation.
