What Should I Do If I Want to Get Clean?

Admitting that you need help is the first step, and sometimes even the hardest step

Admitting that you need help is the first step, and sometimes even the hardest step, when seeking treatment. Once the initial shock of admitting you need treatment wears off, the overwhelming task of finding the best treatment for your addiction starts.

Where Do I Even Start?

Seeking treatment is a scary moment for an opium addict, especially when there are thousands of facilities to choose from. Included in the following are some examples of where one can start when looking for opium addiction treatment:

  • Ask for referrals
  • Check insurance coverage
  • Ask family and friends for support

Many individuals are referred to treatment facilities by their doctors or friends, while others begin their search by researching facilities that provide the services they feel they need for successful treatment. If you have insurance, call and ask which facilities they cover, and base your decision off of that. If you do not have insurance, ask about the facility’s payment options that can help you pay for the treatment, such as a payment plan of monthly installments. Having the support from friends and family can help you make strides. Seek the additional support from others, who are a positive influence.

How Can I Prepare For Treatment?

When preparing for treatment, opium addicts can take numerous steps to help ease the transition into treatment. Included in the following are some examples of how one can prepare for treatment:

  • Set travel plans
  • Place a person in charge of your home
  • Remove all paraphernalia from your home

When one has committed to a treatment facility, he may be wary of what lies ahead. While getting everything prepared for treatment, it is essential to plan for travel both to and from the facility. Ask a trustworthy, non-drug using family member or friend to watch your home, take in your mail and even help with paying your bills. Before you leave, remove all opium paraphernalia from your home. This removes all immediate temptation and gives you a fresh start for when you come home.
