Thinking about seeking treatment? Why now might be the best time yet.

There is no denying it – things are tense out there. We opened 2020 with incredible political division, moved into a terrifying global pandemic and recession, and before emerging, have been faced with some of the greatest social upheaval our country has seen in generations. Things have reached a level of tenderness that most of us have never witnessed.

So why would we suggest that now of all times is a good time to head to treatment? Read on for more.

Stay Safe

For people that are ready and willing, transformation can happen under any circumstances, even during a crisis. There is no safer place than treatment, and no better time than now.

Thankfully, treatment facilities are considered an essential service and we have been able to continue to safely offer services. And due to the ongoing upheaval, now might be the best possible time to press pause and put first things first. Taking a step back from the world and taking care of yourself seems more essential now than ever.

OCR has implemented robust safety measures in response to the virus. The health and wellness of our clients, our staff, and our community remain our #1 priority. We are strictly adhering to recommendations from state and federal health agencies, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We have remained virus-free and will continue our thorough safety protocols.

Be Supported

We believe that there is opportunity in crisis. Whether it’s coronavirus, a job, or a relationship – nothing needs to stand in the way of your recovery. There is no better time than now to prioritize your health and well being.

These times have been overwhelming for many. The supportive and safe environment of a treatment center can offer a haven and shelter for those who want to take a step back. With experienced and compassionate therapists, clinicians, and counselors, we are well suited to help people weather tough times and find a way out.

Get Engaged

People across the nation have been galvanized by the issues we as a country are facing. Demonstrators have filled the streets, and scores more have taken to social media to have their voices heard. Many have joined the ongoing national conversation about America’s values, social justice, and racial equity. And while many have felt motivated to speak or act, others have struggled to engage or understand how they feel in light of the tremendous tension and upheaval.

The good news is that people in recovery are gifted with the opportunity and capacity to be engaged citizens. Once we get our own lives in order, we usually find that we are much better suited to contribute to our communities, families, and friends in meaningful ways. But until we get well ourselves, our ability to show up as our best selves will always be hindered. Getting treatment can be the beginning of the rest of your life. Who do you want to be?
