The holiday season usually means lots of food, festivities and fun. However, this time of year can be difficult for some people. For example, the temptation to drink can be stronger than usual for people who already have issues with alcohol. And multiple family-themed gatherings can be particularly difficult for people who are depressed and may use alcohol or drugs to cope. But help is available. More specifically, addiction recovery in Baltimore County is available to individuals who fall in either category.

Identifying the Need for Addiction Recovery in Baltimore County

Addiction symptoms and actions include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Feeling that you have to use the drug regularly – daily or even several times a day
  • Over time, needing more of the drug to get the same effect
  • Making certain that you maintain a supply of the drug
  • Not meeting obligations and work responsibilities, or cutting back on social or recreational activities because of drug use.

If any of the aforementioned symptoms and behaviors ring true, entering a professional recovery program is imperative.

What are the benefits of a professional addiction recovery program?

Professionals know that it is often the fear of experiencing physical withdrawal symptoms that causes many addicts to put rehab on hold – especially those who are dependent upon alcohol, opiate painkillers, and prescription sedatives, which can be dangerous. However, drug rehabilitation offers you the medical care you need to stabilize and feel better.

Some of the benefits associated with entering addiction treatment programs include “improvement in participants’ self-efficacy” as well as “improvements in negative affect, social support perceptions, reductions in habitual craving, and feelings of guilt or shame.”
