“Hitting the Rock Bottom” is a common phrase, especially to those individuals who got caught with alcohol or drug addiction. Maybe some of those individuals have already experienced that happening, which makes them change their self-destructive behavior. Unfortunately, what many people are not aware of being the exact event that will trigger them in changing their behavior and when will it happen before it’s too late?

Most of us are aware that the longer that people remain addicted and the more substance they consume the more damage it will bring to their life. Addiction does not only ruin their psychological and physical health, but it also damages their self-respect, relationships and belongings. Unfortunately, there are some addicts who lose a lot before reaching the point of realization that they really have to change their behavior and engage in addiction facilities services to seek treatment for their addiction. However, there are also some who have a high rock bottom and lose generally little. As the time comes that the addicted person is willing to seek addiction treatment and decides to enter addiction facilities services, then that would be their rock bottom.

What is Rock Bottom?

Hitting the Rock Bottom is the concept that an individual, especially an addict must experience their lowest point before having the willingness to change. It is the idea that the addicted person must experience the worst effects of his behaviors before deciding to amend his destructive actions. Hope Addiction Treatment Services contemplates that it is a subjective term because each person has different level of lowest point and some are willing to lose and suffer more compared to others.

Every one of us may have denied in the past in order to cover up something, but denial is mainly strong to those addicted individuals. Hope Addiction Treatment Services state that denial keeps addicted people from hitting their own rock bottom. It serves as their defense mechanism to avoid confrontations and to continually support their addictive habit. Though substance abusers are aware about the damages that their addiction brings to their life, they tend to blame it on other reasons. They may even think that substance addiction is the only thing they can rely on. As long as the addict thinks that way, they will be trapped by their dependency and this will prevent them from engaging in addiction facilities services. Hitting the rock bottom is the time when they finally passed the stage of denial.

Raising the Rock Bottom

The earlier that an addict recognizes his lowest point, the better it is for them. Racing the person’s rock bottom of an addict is about getting the point of change to them now before experiencing the worst consequences of their actions. There may be already a lot of reasons for a person to quit their behavior, but they just need to be more aware of those reasons. Hope Addiction Treatment Services encourage patients to raise awareness in order to help their loved one enter addiction facilities services and seek addiction treatment for their recovery ; they can try to cut financial, shelter or anything that permits them on to continue abusing drugs or alcohol.

Hope Addiction Treatment Services emphasizes that the person needs to catch a repetitive message from family and close friends that they are seeing substance addiction is the problem. The person may not respond to this approach immediately, but the repetitive message can help the person to address the state of denial and lets them realize that they need treatment for their substance addiction.

Our staff promises you to build a strong support system that is needed for a successful addiction recovery. Reach us at 425-998-9075 now!
