Tens of millions of people seek help for substance abuse and mental health disorders every year. Many people dealing with these issues, though, never receive the treatment they need. This is often because someone may not realize how serious their problem is. So, how do you know if you need help? It sounds like a complex question, but the answer can be very simple.
At Transformations Treatment Center, our goal is to ensure everyone who needs help has access to it. This is why we work with a variety of insurers, government programs and other funding sources. We also create customized treatment plans catering to each client’s specific needs. Before any of this can benefit someone, though, they must know when they need help.

From drug addiction to posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), there are countless difficulties faced by Americans every day. Unfortunately, we saw these and similar issues get even worse during the coronavirus pandemic. Of course, not everyone going through a difficult situation has a mental health disorder. And contrary to popular belief, not everyone using drugs has an addiction.
These simple facts are what make it so difficult for people to know if they need help. Anxiety and stress are common among everyone, and doctors prescribe legal drugs every single day. The real issue arises because people don’t recognize that they’ve developed a serious problem. In fact, statistics show just how big of an issue this is.
These statistics show just how daunting a problem American currently has. Substance abuse, process addictions, and mental health disorders are all extremely common. Unfortunately, people failing to get proper treatment is also quite common. If you’ve never contacted a treatment center because you don’t know if you need help, it’s time to make a change.

No two addictions are exactly the same. For instance, someone who develops a dependence on heroin will showcase very different symptoms than someone using cocaine. Fortunately, there are some telltale signs that transcend substance types. If you notice any of these issues in your life, it’s likely that you’d benefit from addiction treatment:
Like substance abuse, no two people experience mental health disorders in the same way. There are countless conditions a person could develop. And even if two people face the same disease, their experience with it can vary dramatically. If you notice any of the following red flags in your life, though, it’s probably time to seek mental health treatment:
While the symptoms mentioned in the previous two sections are major red flags, this is far from an exhaustive list. If you’re experiencing difficulties in life — even when these telltale signs aren’t apparent — don’t ever be afraid to reach out for help. You know yourself better than anyone else. If you feel like something isn’t right, don’t wait for the internet to confirm your beliefs.

Everyone experiences difficulties in life, but it can be difficult to know if you need help. There’s a pervasive belief in America that people should just tough it out. Far too many people also believe that those dealing with addiction should have to face the battle on their own. Both these views are inaccurate and dangerous, so if you need help, the time to reach out is now.
At Transformations Treatment Center, our goal is to ensure each of our clients gets to a healthy place. For some, this could mean overcoming addiction and staying in recovery. For others, it could mean dealing with trauma they experienced decades beforehand. Knowing when you need help is essential, but seeking it is the most important thing you can do for your health.
