Prospective clients and their families often wonder how to know if they need alcohol treatment. At Woodlake Addiction Recovery Center, our answer is simple: if your alcohol and drug use has become a source of pain in your life and in the lives of those closest to you, that’s enough of a reason to seek help.
By definition, addiction is painful to the user and their family and friends. If your consumption of alcohol and drugs is spiraling out of control and becoming unmanageable, pain will be one of the first signs (and one of those easiest to discern) that you have a problem requiring professional treatment.
That pain can also be the gateway to getting help and finding recovery. If you’re unsure whether you or a loved one needs treatment for an addiction disorder ask yourself whether you’re hurting. If you are hurting, then you need our help. It really is that simple.
