It is a myth that an addicted individual must hit “rock bottom” to be ready for drug and alcohol addiction treatment. Helping someone get help early in their addiction cycle will result in fewer accompanying psychological and physical problems and a better prognosis for long-term recovery. Furthermore, “rock bottom” is a dangerous place to be because for many addicts, that point is when a near-fatal or fatal overdose, serious accident or criminal justice consequence has occurred.
