They want to move forward and begin to heal, but they are afraid to take that big step of entering rehab. The need to work through this fear is essential. You can change your life for the better. Here are a couple of questions to ask yourself if you find yourself fearful of rehab.

What Really Frightens You?

Take the time to sit down and ask yourself, what are you afraid of? Are you nervous about meeting new people or living in an unfamiliar place for a little bit? Are you afraid to leave your family?

These are all completely valid fears. When you decide you need help for addiction, mental health issues, or trauma, it will feel scary. So much in your life will change. Part of what you do in therapy will be to work through those fears.

Focus on Self-Motivation and Goals

Determine what your goals are, both short-term and long-term. Write them down and hang them on the wall. There is a good chance that receiving therapy will help you to work toward and achieve those goals. Sometimes aspects of our lives need to change so we can accomplish our goals. For many of us, we need professional help to guide us towards that change and the skills required to face our struggles.

What motivates you? What makes you want to be a better person? These are all great questions to think about when you resist rehab because of fear. We are all fearful of something. Many of us fear change, leaving our comfort zone or our family. However, sometimes when we think about what we are striving for, how it will better our lives, and how it will impact our relationships, we can face that fear head-on.

Deciding to get help for addiction, mental health issues, or trauma is a huge step. For many of us, that step is scary to face. Try to remember what you are working toward. Let your goals and motivations drive you to face your fears. Some of us will benefit from simply learning more about the programs. When we feel educated, we can feel more comfortable.
