Why People Return to Rehab Programs Multiple Times

April 7, 2008

There are people who go to drug and alcohol rehab centers four, five, or ten times, or even more, before they successfully stop engaging in substance abuse long-term. This is one of the reasons why many people have the misconception that addiction treatment programs don’t work.

They do work in many cases, but a number of factors have to come together to create success.One of the most important elements of addiction recovery is the individual’s desire to change. It is possible for someone to go to a rehab center against their will and find the motivation to change their once they are there, but it’s best if they show up with that determination already in place. Many addicts begin a treatment program because they felt that they had no other option after a family intervention or a court order. Some people go just to try to make others happy. If they can’t find the motivation to change either before or during addiction treatment, there’s no way that a program can force it into them. Some individuals go through this process over and over until they finally get tired enough of substance abuse that they truly want to transform themselves from the inside out.

The other reasons why people have to return to addiction treatment multiple times are related to the actual program. Perhaps they didn’t stay long enough for it to be effective. Maybe the wrong rehab center was chosen, and its methods didn’t work for them. Addicts should really consider the benefits and drawbacks of a specific facility in order to determine whether they should go back to the same place, try something else that is similar, or choose a different method altogether. Sometimes people simply need a refresher course or additional help that will build on the changes they’ve already internalized.
