How to Come to Terms with Your Drug Use

How to Come to Terms with Your Drug UseLortab addicts commonly deny their struggles with drug abuse. They are often caught up in lies, deceit, justification and avoidance that blinds them to how dependency damages their lives and others. Emerging from the fog of denial into the reality of addiction can be difficult, and it often takes considerable time, but you can come to grips with your drug use if you seek help.

To address your Lortab addiction, consider the following steps:

  • Admit that Lortab abuse has damaged yourself and for others, and you will have taken a huge step in your recovery. This admission requires you to take a long, hard look at your situation rather than ignoring it.
  • Admit that you cannot fix addiction by yourself. Addiction is a chronic disease, just like high blood pressure or diabetes, which means you may develop serious consequences if you try to fix it by yourself. By admitting that you need help to overcome addiction, you give yourself a better chance at recovery.
  • Learn all you can about addiction. You may hold some preconceived ideas about addiction, like the idea that people choose to be addicts. You may have also learned many opinions about this topic, but, rather than going off the skewed opinions of others, gather information from reputable sources, such as your doctor, therapist or insurance company. Know all the facts about addiction to decide where to get help.
  • Talk to your family and loved ones. Your family and loved ones probably know that you struggle with a problem; they have probably endured the consequences of your addiction, such as being lied to or deceived. Ask for their support as you undergo treatment, because they can serve an role in your recovery.
  • Get professional help. Some people stop taking drugs without the help of professionals, but most people need professional care to address their addictions. Medical professionals know how to help you detox, discover the reasons behind your addiction and how to equip you against relapse, so they maximize your chances for long-term sobriety.

Recovery is a lifelong process, but these early steps are critical to rehab.
