Actor Charlie Sheen Enters Rehab

Charlie Sheen is most recently famous for his role in the hit series Two and a Half Men, but lately his fame has escalated because of his actions surrounding addiction.  On Friday, January 31st after being released from a hospital for an unknown ailment, Sheen checked himself into a drug rehabilitation facility for the 3rd time in a year.  This will be the second time in a year that the star has caused his show to go on hiatus while he sought help for his addictions.  It is now reported that he is continuing his rehabilitation in his home.  His addictions at this point are not clear, but he has had previous problems with alcohol and cocaine.

With a lengthy record for addiction problems, it’s not wise for people to take their rehabilitation into their own hands.  Rehab in the home cannot compare to what you’d get at a clinic with expert staff and proven therapies.  Often, the home contains triggers or even the substances that the person is abusing.  There is temptation all around then in that environment.  That’s why it is so important to go where there is no way to use.  Home rehabilitation, especially in the case of Mr. Sheen will probably not bring the results that an residential stay can offer. 

Vista Taos Drug Rehabilitation Facility is located in Taos, New Mexico.  With a quiet atmosphere and a caring and certified staff, you have a greater chance to reach sobriety than if you stayed home.  If you suffer from drug addiction, you do not have to suffer alone.  Vista Taos can work with you through 12 step programs and complimentary therapies to help you fight addiction in a comfortable manner.  Rehab at home will not help you deal with the addiction; it will not keep you on track.  Call Vista Taos Drug Rehabilitation Facility to learn why getting away from your using environment is so important for the healing process.
