Does Rehab sound like a good option for me? Is there any centers that don’t involve God?

Question by Jen Heartacher: Does Rehab sound like a good option for me? Is there any centers that don’t involve God?
I’m 19 years old, have been suffering from Depression and Anxiety since age 8, eating disorder at 12 and alcoholism since age 14, and also tried my first suicide attempt at 14. I’ve tried multiple drug treatments for depression, none of which have worked, and after all these years I still am struggling with depression and alcoholism, I’m 19 and very close to rock bottom(or as low as I want to go.) I realized I don’t have anything in common with my friends except for we are all alcoholics, and over the years I have lost a lot of friends and now all the friends I seem to have left are also drinkers, I don’t want to live this life anymore. I have bad depression and anxiety, the more I feel depressed, the more I want to drink, the more I drink the more I feel depressed, it’s a never ending cycle.

Does rehab sound like a good option for me? Money is not an Issue since it would be covered by the government. But I am not religious, and don’t want God to be pressured on me. Any suggestions?

Try a cognitive behavioral therapist first. They can assess you and help you figure out what steps you should take to help yourself. They can teach you coping skills etc. It involves a lot of work, but you seem pretty motivated to help yourself which is an amazing first step. And if that doesn’t seem to be working well, they can refer you to places that will fit your needs. They’re pretty good at handling the God pressure thing. They’re trained to be open minded. Good luck!

are you thinking about that 12 step program? it just doesn’t work for some people who might not think there is a higher power.
it’s great that you want to change your life style. i really think rehab will be good for you. call around to the rehab places in your area. i think the first thing to do is to find a good psychologist in your city, check rating sites. it will help with your depression so you won’t start drinking again.he can give you ideas/options that will help you. he will be an objective person who will not judge you. you really need help with your depression. it’s private,secure,supportive.no one has to know you are going. it will give you self esteem. your story needs to be told.

    Please don’t ever try to kill yourself!! Imagine how your loved ones would feel. The anguish would never end for them. It would take a PERMANENT toll on them.

    You don’t have to kill yourself! You can have “a life” in JESUS (John 10:9-10)

    In Jesus, life can be far better and peaceful, but the first step is to never give up on yourself!

    PLEASE, pray to Him (Jesus.) Pour out your heartaches to Him. Trust me, Jesus Christ will HEAR your prayer, and can (with time,) heal ALL of your wounds.

    Put your trust in Him, that He CARES about you, and will listen to your concerns. He LOVES you so much and even knew you when you were in your mother’s womb!

    “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you…” – Jeremiah 1:5.

    No matter who you are, God LOVES you and wants to give you a FUTURE and everlasting life.

    “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

    That being said, suicide is a SIN. A sin that will send you to Hell (a place of eternal punishment and a place that there’s no escape from.)

    All those who reject Jesus Christ and die in their sins (and suicide,) will be cast into the ‘Lake of Fire’ (Hell) forever. Hell is definitively a REAL place, and once you go there, there’s no getting out!

    You can go on Youtube and watch many people’s testimonies about dying and going to Hell. You can start watching here;

    Though one may not understand the severity of God sentencing a person to burn in Hell for all eternity, as punishment for sin, we must realize that God is far more holy and just than we could ever imagine.

    Your life, and body belongs to GOD, who created you.

    No one should ever even seriously consider something so foolish as killing one’s self. I hope these few words have encouraged you.

    I’ll pray for you.

    PS; God promises us that one day in the future; “He (Jesus) will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” – Revelation 21:4.

    He also tells us; “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10.

    When you have a relationship with Jesus, things ALWAYS get better with time. He loves you and wants you to have a future. A wonderful future which includes EVERLASTING life. 🙂

    I would also get a Bible from somewhere and start reading it from the New Testament (the book of Matthew.)

    Or start reading the New Testament, online; http://bible.oremus.org/?passage=Matthew…
