Around the addiction treatment profession there are statistics floating around like “only 2% of people who go to rehab stay sober” or “90% of people who leave rehab will end up in another rehab”. These statistics tend to make it seem like addiction treatment has a low success rate. In my opinion, there are only a few reasons for these statistics.

Reason A) Rehab and Treatment Don’t Work

Reason B) Addiction Can’t Be Fixed, It’s Impossible to Stay Sober

Reason C) The Patient Doesn’t Give Their Best Effort or Follow Suggestions

We know from experience and research that the first two reasons can occur, but they are not the contributing factor as to why rehab fails. Rehab has been proven to be successful for addiction, and people with addiction can heal and stay sober. It is true that staying sober is not a simple or easy feat, and rehab does not work for everyone or every time. Thus logic and evidence would point to Reason C as the main factor in why rehab programs fail to work. Read about my Top 8 reasons why rehabs fail….
