When you enter a Colorado drug rehab facility, you have a great deal of work to do to overcome your addiction to drugs or alcohol. Although rehab is a lot of work and requires a lot of effort, it can lead to a better life for you and your family. One consideration you may also have in rehab is whether to address your addiction to nicotine in addition to your other addictions.
About 60 to 75 percent of those who struggle with drug or alcohol abuse also smoke cigarettes, and smoking is also correlated with mental health problems as well. Here are some good reasons to consider quitting smoking while in rehab.
It may feel overwhelming to think about quitting smoking at the same time you are battling another addiction, but rehab is a time when you will have more support and help in overcoming nicotine addiction than you will at any other time in your life. There are many treatment options for nicotine addiction, including counseling, cessation aids like gum, and medications that can gradually wean you off of nicotine dependence so withdrawal will not be as severe.
If quitting smoking is something you have wanted to do for your health and well-being, there is no reason not to consider smoking cessation as part of your Colorado drug or alcohol rehab experience.
