Are you struggling to get your husband into rehab? Finding that line between saving an addict and saving yourself isn't always easy, and that becomes an urgent matter when the addict is your spouse. Knowing the facts below may put things a bit more in perspective.
If your husband is struggling with an addiction, he may deny that he has a problem and believe that attending a rehab program is not a necessity or priority. However, as wife you can help him overcome his reservations. Getting your husband into an inpatient rehab program is the most recommended treatment option, especially if he can be away from home. This will remove him from his current temptations and allow him to focus completely on getting sober without any distractions.
At an inpatient rehab program your husband is required to reside at the treatment facility for the duration of the treatment, which could last for any length of time from 28 to 90 days. A reputable residential rehab facility offers close medical supervision and access to medical care and just as importantly, an environment in which people in similar struggle become source of support, share experience, and offer hope to each other.
Residential programs vary by rehab centers and may include a number of other features, ranging from specialized trauma therapy, nutritional counseling, recovery educational workshops, etc.
Florida Center for Recovery is a Detox and Rehab Center located in Fort Pierce, Florida providing residential rehab programs since 2002 for adults age 18 and over. Our drug and alcohol rehab center offers residential short-term rehab, 30 days or less, as well as long term rehab.

Your husband may not reach out for help or quit using alcohol or drugs on his own. In this case, loved ones need to step in and assist him in getting the life-saving treatment that is desperately needed.
