Should I Stay

Or Should I Go?

Private and Confidential Treatment

Being away adds to a sense of safety that privacy brings.

Getting away from your everyday life and environment can be incredibly beneficial when looking to recover from a substance abuse disorder. Going to an out of state rehab facility can provide you with a fresh start on life – one that is free from distractions, triggers, and toxic people.

Some clients are worried about the impact on existing social circles or work while attending drug and alcohol rehab that may be away from their city, town, or home. Being judged or pointed out can be a concern. Traveling to a different state or city for addiction treatment can increase the chance of feeling attended while reducing fears of focusing on attention from a previous social setting.

Setting and reducing social or physical triggers can create a reduced stress atmosphere. Different situations, such as stigma for addiction to heroin or fentanyl, are every day. Leaving out of state to rehab or detox in San Diego may bring in the change required for new cues and associations for a fresh start.

Taking time away to focus on yourself is essential when recovering from substance abuse, and out-of-state rehabs provide the perfect setting. The benefits of seeking treatment in a place far away from home are plentiful. It gives you the physical distance from the places and people that may have caused your addiction and provides an emotional space that helps you focus on yourself during recovery. Furthermore, treatment centers outside your home state can offer new perspectives on recovery through different therapeutic techniques, resources, and activities. You’ll be able to explore new activities and cultures in a safe and supportive environment for your journey toward recovery. Additionally, being away from home can help you break unhealthy habits such as those caused by codependency or enabling family members or friends.

Begin a life free from drugs or alcohol by receiving the sober social support that San Diego is known for. Leaving town or your usual settings can be a sign of commitment towards change, not ignoring being able to reduce a social environment that may have previously thwarted an individual’s momentum towards recovery and produce triggers or patterns that had become a habit or behavioral conditioning. The distance can become fresh stimuli and reduce negative social circles or vicious cycles. Stepping away from alcoholism or substance abuse can be advantageous outside of a city where certain people or spaces are triggers. Have a pet like a dog or a cat?
