When a person finally realizes that an addiction problem exists, and the services provided by drug rehab programs are needed, the last thing they want or need to do is have to “run down” such a program. For this reasons, these services are available through a number of sources. Many companies now offer employee assistance programs, which include access to rehabilitation services. By making such programs available, employers become “part of the solution” rather than “part of the problem.”
As a further incentive, an employer faced with an employee with a drug addiction can also allow the employee to keep his or her job once successfully enrolling in and completing one of the programs. This will give the employee another reason to become and remain drug-free.
A person who possesses the strength to admit to a drug addiction problem and seek help for it needs the added positive benefit of knowing that he or she will not have to worry about income once they have completed the drug rehab program. The employer can rightly feel pride in knowing that he or she truly contributed to the employee’s rehabilitation success.
Besides employers and businesses, there are also municipal (city and/or county), state, religious, and federal organizations that offer access to drug rehab programs. These include, but are by no means limited to, the United Way, the Salvation Army, and homeless shelters–both privately and public ally supported, and programs offered through various community organizations.
Drug rehab programs that are offered through organizations such as those listed above are usually completely free or offered at a greatly reduced cost. If a person does not have to worry about how he or she is going to pay for the treatment, the decision to enter one of these programs is easier to make and carry out.
