3 Things that shouldn’t keep you away from alcohol rehab

We Do Recover

Getting into alcohol rehab isn’t easy, but it’s definitely the right choice.

If you’re addicted to alcohol, or you know of someone who is, it’s imperative that you get professional help instead of trying to quit drinking alone. Doing this can cause severe & in some cases even life-threatening health effects.

There will always be some reason or excuse that could keep you or your loved one away from alcohol rehab, but today, I’m here to tell you that whatever they are, they’re simply not good enough.

Alcoholism is an incurable brain disease that will continue to get worse the longer it’s left untreated.

The sooner that you or your loved one gets into alcohol rehab, the better, that’s why in this article, we’re going to provide you 3 obstacles that shouldn’t keep you away from getting treatment.


One of the biggest worries for many alcoholics & family members is whether they’ll be able to afford alcohol rehab, but did you know that choosing not to get into treatment is actually far more expensive?

If you’re addicted to alcohol, you’ll constantly crave it & drinks are not cheap. Over time & continued use, it can put you in serious financial trouble.

Here in South Africa, most medical schemes cover the bulk of the costs of alcohol rehab, but not all of it. If you don’t have one, loan money from family members & friends or even take out a bank loan if possible.  In the end, it will be worth every single penny!

Many people are worried about the stigma attached to being labelled an ‘addict’. They’re worried that their reputation at home & at work will suffer if others know about their problem, which is usually enough to keep many alcoholics away from alcohol rehab.

However, allowing alcoholism to continue is far worse than the stigma attached to alcohol rehab as over time & continued drinking, you’ll eventually lose everything important to you.

Family & Work Responsibilities

There aren’t many alcoholics that can afford to take time off from their work or family responsibilities for alcohol rehab. Some own & run businesses while others are breadwinners in their households.

While it may be tough, it’s really non-negotiable – you have to get into alcohol rehab. Allowing your alcoholism to continue will hurt the people closest to you & can severely damage your career.
