Choosing to go to treatment for trauma, addiction, or a related mental health issue is a difficult choice to make. Recovery is a life changing experience with the hopes that life will change. Everyone has a story when they arrive to treatment. Most often, those last experiences before treatment becomes a reality are hopeless, painful, desperate, and lonely. When someone makes the monumental decision to go to treatment, they are also deciding that there is another answer. There is another answer to their pain and their suffering. There is the hope that one day, the cause of their pain and suffering would go away.

One of the first questions people ask themselves is whether or not their struggles with mental health, in whatever form, will go away. People ask if they will ever be fully recovered, if they won’t have trauma, if they won’t be depressed or anxious anymore. Some mental health disorders, like depression, can have periods of remission, even life long ones. With the right treatment which shows people how to cope and effectively regulate their emotions, people can learn to live with their mental illness in a manageable way. Currently, however, there is no “cure” for mental illness. Meaning, that, there is no way to ultimately, permanently, delete mental illness from the brain. People may be prone to experiencing their mental illness symptoms in varying forms at varying degrees for a lifetime.

Recently, pop star and actress Selena Gomez spoke about her depression and anxiety to Harper’s Bazaar. She said, “I’ve had a lot of issues with depression and anxiety, and I’ve been very vocal about it, but it’s not something I feel I’ll ever overcome.” Gomez continued, “I think it’s a battle I’m gonna have to face for the rest of my life, and I’m okay with that because I know that I’m choosing myself over anything else.”

Choosing treatment for trauma is choosing yourself. Learning how to live in recovery is a lifetime choice you make every day.
