When You Hit Rock Bottom

When You Hit Rock Bottom - Transformations Care

Right now, you may be asking yourself many different questions – Am I a bad person? Am I at a low point in life? Do I need help? You are not a bad person. You may be at a low point in your life, but you can get the help you need

Everyone Has a Different Bottom 

Everyone has a different rock bottom. Each person will face different situations and emotions in regard to drinking or drugging. It is important to look at your own situation and determine what needs you have in life. The sooner you can do this, the sooner you can break free from substance abuse. 

Signs Someone Reaches Rock Bottom

There are many experiences that someone with depression, other mental health issues or an addiction go through. It can be tough to tell if you have hit rock bottom in your substance abuse, addiction or mental health issues. However, there are some signs that someone, whether this be you or someone in your life, has hit rock bottom, such as:

  • Getting fired from your job or losing your business due to substance abuse or mental health issues
  • Getting evicted or losing your house due to addiction or mental health issues
  • Dealing with financial issues because of drinking or drugging too much
  • Getting into legal trouble
  • Overdosing on drugs or getting alcohol poisoning
  • Blacking out consistently when drinking
  • Getting kicked out of or dropping out of school
  • Getting a serious injury while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Not having any more support from family members or friends
  • Divorcing due to drug or alcohol abuse or untreated mental health issues 

These are just some of the signs that you or someone you know has reached rock bottom. If these signs are recognized, it is time to get mental health or addiction treatment help. You can do this by contacting us here at Transformations Care. 

Is it Good or Bad to Hit Rock Bottom

This is a debatable question. Some people think it is bad for a person to hit rock bottom. However, the truth is that many people don’t seek out help for their addiction or mental health issues until they reach their rock bottom. If this is the case for you or someone you know, hitting rock bottom may actually be a good thing. It could be the turning point in your life. 

Things to Do if You Have Hit Your Rock Bottom 

As noted above, rock bottom is different for everyone. The plan of action to take when you have hit your bottom can be different than it is for someone else. With this being said, there are some common things that a person can do if they have hit their bottom, such as:

  • Reaching out to a professional addiction or mental health treatment center for help
  • Start believing yourself 
  • Feel the pain and allow that to motivate you to get back control over your life
  • Let yourself cry about the things you have lost, then use that to empower you to make a change for yourself
  • Show some compassion and empathy toward yourself 
  • Start attending support groups 
  • Learn that you are responsible for yourself and that the only person who can truly change things for you is you
  • Find your new comfort zone (this will likely feel odd for awhile, but once you get there it will make all the difference)
  • Start detoxing from alcohol and drugs
  • Learn new ways to have fun without alcohol or drugs
  • Be present in the moment and enjoy every one of your days
  • Mingle with people who have a positive outlook on life 
  • Work on creating a recovery plan that includes new life goals 

These are just some of the many things that you can do if you have hit your rock bottom. Now that you know about these action plans, you can reach out to our Transformations Care team to get the help you need in recovery today.
