Unfortunately, not everyone makes it into treatment before it is too late. One of the biggest reasons why this occurs is because the person refuses help and will not accept it before they overdose. This may seem like common sense but it is confusing when we consider that nearly everyone who is addicted to drugs or alcohol will tell you that they want a better life. The problem is that addiction prevents them from thinking and behaving rationally. One of the reasons why intervention is successful is because of this principle. As the person comes off the drugs, they become more rational and may decide they want to get better for themselves. Anyone struggling with addiction can get help from the different substance abuse treatment programs in Port Saint Lucie.
