I wouldn't last 10 minutes with people treating me that way! If you're just on opiates and have no medical issues, then you don't have to do to a rehab or detox center. Detox at home for free and no one will invade your privacy or tell you what to do. Or is there something you're looking for from a rehab?
Thats the process. Has nothing to do with being a criminal. They are addin structure to your life to prepare you for after rehab. Its the down time that gets people in trouble. If I were you I'd take any place that would take you. Start getting help and stop worring about perception
Well.....there are a few things that need to be pointed out...1...this was detox, not treatment. There goal is to get you clean of dope. They deal with addicts, all day, every day. And addicts, like me, are some lying, thieving, manipulating suckers! I garauntee you all of them are on their guard for typical addict behavior. One in a 100 may come through there that are not like that, however, odds are too low, so everyone gets treated the same. No, you are not allowed privacy in detox, why, so that the people there can do their job in helping u.
I also want to point out no one I know, wants to be an addict. They just are and it doesn't matter at what point we figure this out. How about going to treatment (30 days or more) and just following the directions given. The course us set up for u to have the best chance at success. What's the worst that can happen....u decide its not for you???
I think most centers are set up to protect us.....from ourselves.
Did you start using once you left?
Maybe start by looking at what your expectations are with a treatment center? What is it your looking for?
There has to be structure in Rehab and usually in the beginning the focus needs to be on you so phone calls and such are limited. What are you taking now?
