It’s difficult to define a subjective term like rock bottom because it’s different for everyone, but anyone who is close to addiction knows about this concept. The longer an addict continues to use, the more damage they will inevitably do to their lives, rock bottom is the point where the damage is so overwhelming, that they have no option left but to seek help. Each addict must decide what their own rock bottom is. For some, it’s simply being confronted by loved ones who they thought didn’t know about their addiction. While others are willing to sacrifice everyone and everything they ever loved in order to continue using.
Rock bottom isn’t a hard and fast rule like it was once thought to be. An addict doesn’t have to lose everything before they are willing to seek treatment and steps can be taken to prevent the worst, like suicide. While recognizing the destruction caused by one’s addiction is a common precipitating factor, it’s up to the individual addict to decide when enough is enough. If you or a loved one are having trouble deciding if it’s time to seek treatment, give us a call at Pacific Solstice for a free phone consultation, (949) 200-7929.
