I Don't Want Anyone To Know That I'm Going to Rehab

When a loved one is struggling with alcoholism, drug addiction, or any other issues with substance use disorders, they often try to hide what’s going on in their life. Addiction and mental health treatment wrongfully have a stigma attached to them in the United States. When someone wants to seek treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, they should be commended, not looked at poorly. Entering a rehab program in a rehab facility can be the first step in making a big change in life. Beginning a life in recovery can open many doors that may have been closed to you while you were abusing drugs and alcohol. 

Feelings of shame are very common.  Getting more information about recovery programs available to you can be one way to alleviate those feelings.  At Quantum Treatment we have recovery programs that are flexible and fully confidential.  Call us today and speak to one of our drug or alcohol treatment specialists.  We can help you work on moving past the cycle of addiction you may be experiencing and design a program just for you. 

Feeling Embarrassed About Going To Rehab

If you feel ashamed of your alcohol and drug use and are also embarrassed about going to substance abuse rehab, one thing to remember is that similar to other areas of medicine, your treatment is confidential. The important part about addiction recovery for drugs and alcohol is that you find a treatment plan that is right for you.  At Quantum Treatment we offer inpatient treatment, outpatient rehab, specific programs for alcohol rehab, drug rehab, and people who have a dual diagnosis.  Feeling embarrassed about treatment could also be a symptom of a cooccurring disorder in addition to issues with drugs and alcohol.  Dual diagnosis for a cooccurring mental health issue like bipolar disorder, a personality disorder, an eating disorder, anxiety, or depression can add to someone’s feelings of shame.  

Is Rehab Confidential?

Addiction treatment is confidential. Drug rehab treatment centers keep their clients’ records and information private.  Substance abusers who receive medical treatment for drug addiction and possibly for mental health issues can do so with confidence that their information is kept private. Treatment programs for drug addicts are confidential and only medical information that a client agrees to have shared with other doctors and medical professionals is communicated. Addiction recovery can make a major change in a person’s life and being able to get treatment confidentially can go a long way to helping someone to start a new path in life.

Should You Tell Someone You’re Going To Rehab?

When you begin rehab treatment for drugs and alcohol it’s good to tell family and friends for a couple of reasons.  First, your drug or alcohol addiction most likely affected them, too, and they will most likely be relieved and supportive of your decision, helping you move past feeling embarrassed about getting treatment.  Second, if you are starting an inpatient addiction rehab program, it’s good for them to know where you are and how long you will be gone. Third, when you decide to seek treatment, it’s a great idea to start building your support network for when you have completed an initial addiction recovery program.
