Most Common Excuses Not to Go to Alcohol Rehab

Most Common Excuses Not to Go to Alcohol Rehab

Aug 3, 2018 By Paul Spanjar 0 comments

We all know the immortal lyrics of Amy Winehouse: “I ain't got the time and my daddy thinks I'm fine”. Unfortunately, these are just a few of the most common excuses from those avoiding alcohol addiction treatment. Here, the Providence Projects explain why there is no excuse not to try alcohol rehab. 

I can’t leave my family

On the surface, this sounds like a very credible reason not to attend alcohol rehab. But many children suffer long-term psychological effects by living with an alcoholic parent. These can include anxiety, depression and panic disorders. Alcohol misuse may also lead to physical harm. 37% of child deaths and severe injuries by neglect can be linked to parental alcohol abuse. At the Providence Projects, we offer alcohol counselling and help for families in rehab. 

I can’t take time off work

Although some companies might not relish you taking time off work, all employers have a duty of care to their employees. Consult your company’s sick leave and drug & alcohol policies in your contract. You can also speak to your line manager discreetly. Many managers will understand and support you in seeking alcohol addiction treatment at a residential rehab, especially if alcohol is affecting your work performance. 

I don’t drink that much

It can be all too easy to compare our drinking levels with others. We all know that guy who lost their job or got divorced because of their drinking. But even the highest functioning alcoholics may suffer from the long-term effects of alcohol abuse. If your loved ones are becoming concerned, it may be time to admit you have a drinking problem. 

I can stop at any time

If you can quit, why haven’t you? You may find that you haven’t ‘got around to’ resolving your alcohol issues because you are in denial or around others who share the same habit. Alcohol detox at The Providence Projects helps you stop drinking safely, with medical assistance at hand and trained counsellors guide you through the process. 

I can’t afford alcohol rehab

We aim to make alcohol rehab costs affordable for everyone at our private rehab. We can offer various payment options and treatment plans to help you start your recovery journey.

"An unassuming house in the heart of Boscombe where miracles happen. From my initial talk with Paul, the admission process with Jon and my induction with Darryl, I was treated with compassion, empathy and understanding. All the staff had been in the same position as me!...If you are looking for a wealth of experience and knowledge around addiction, a safe environment to turn your life around and a solid foundation for your ongoing recovery you will not be disappointed.”
"Today my husband Paul is 1 year clean and sober thanks to The Providence Projects, he has found himself again and is living the life he deserves. " A life beyond his wildest dreams "… He initially signed up for 1 month but soon realised he needed a further 2 months. Paul has been dedicated and followed the advice given to him. He would not be here today if he hadn't been to The Providence Projects. I cannot thank or praise the program and staff enough…”

Alcohol dependant and a chronic gambler the Provi gave me a platform to turn life around and that it has, meaningful relationships, wonderful friends and most importantly peace of mind. You told me good things would happen and they have - and continue to do so. Highly recommended..."
