What if I am not ready for treatment?

Drug and alcohol treatment does not necessarily have to be a voluntary process for it to be efficient. Despite that, some addicts may know when they have had enough, and others may need a little push or some flat-out convincing; the treatment process can still be effective. It can be difficult to come to the full realization that a person must change their destructive lifestyle to that of one being healthier, productive, and taking responsibility. Whether a person is willing or not, the overall rehabilitation process will help them regain control of his or her life again.
