Texas has numerous small cities that have both the small town feel with the amenities of a bigger city. The oil fields have brought jobs and better economic health to the small town of Alice, TX, but some residents have taken the route of drug use and abuse into addiction. This has lead to many addicts and alcoholics experiencing problems with school, work, family life, and the law.
With family life, it's important for those dealing with addiction to know there are two routes available. One is to do nothing and hope for the best. However, like at any other school system, teachers and other staff members at the Alice Independent School District are required by law to report any suspicion of abuse or neglect of the students, and this includes alcoholism or drug abuse by parents. While you might be careful and only drink or do drugs at home, a call from school officials to authorities may bring legal problems knocking on your door.
The second option is to confront addiction and alcoholism with treatment at rehab. This can also protect you or your addicted loved one from job loss, according to ADA regulations. Our counselors and therapists are highly trained, compassionate, and want to help you with recovery. These diseases have lost much of the stigma they once held and people no longer need to hide their problems. Coming forward and asking for help is a sign of strength, not one of weakness, as was once thought. School and work performance suffer, even though the person may feel he or she is doing well. Safety is also an issue and for this reason many employers have a zero tolerance policy. Protecting your future, your job, and your health can begin with a call to our counselors who will help you through the process of recovery.
Is Traveling for Addiction Treatment Right for You?
In many cases, traveling for an addiction treatment is necessary. This is sometimes because negative influences and peer pressure can be difficult to deal with if you go to rehab in the same place where you have had an addiction problem. In most cases, you won't have to travel too far for treatment, but getting out of Alice or your hometown may offer you more privacy for treatment.
Additionally, some individuals prefer a more high-end experience during rehabilitation, and in these cases, you may need to travel to find a fitting facility. Faith based or holistic approaches to recovery may only be available in other cities as well
For those individuals who are looking for a low cost treatment center, staying in your home city will likely be the best option because you won't need to pay travel expenses to a far off location, and you will be able to live at home and continue on with work or school. If you are still unsure where to go for treatment, contact us at anytime for more information.
