Dropping Out Of Therapy

Therapy is an emotional rollercoaster that can be a draining activity to participate in. Treatment can be difficult for the person actively participating in it, but also for their loved ones. This is to say that everyone is impacted by mental illness. It touches every person on this planet. Not everyone is receiving the help they need and deserve, though. It’s important to urge those around you to reach out for help if they need it. This alone isn’t enough, though. There are reasons people drop out of therapy and treatment. Villa Tranquil Recovery wants to bring awareness to these issues so that change can happen. We want to keep people in treatment who need it. You deserve help, no matter your situation. 

Stigma

There is an enormous amount of stigma surrounding mental health and addiction. This often keeps people from reaching out for help in the first place. If they do reach out, they may be scared to actually go through with receiving help because they may think that people in therapy are weak. This is just one stigmatizing comment that’s made among many others. Another piece of the stigma that impacts minority communities the most is that mental illness cannot impact them, or even that you can push through and solve your mental illness or addiction by just working hard. You can’t push mental illnesses or addictions away, however. It doesn’t work like that. This realization may be too much for some people, leading them to drop out of treatment. 

Lack of proper care

Not everyone has the same access to care. However disappointing this may be to learn, “Only 20% of Asian Americans with a mental illness receive treatment compare to 48% of white adults, and only 56% of African Americans and Latinx adults with serious mental illness receive treatment compared to 71% of white adults” (NAMI). Minorities do not get the same access to treatment as their white peers. Villa Tranquil Recovery wants you to know that we are a non-discriminatory treatment center. Regardless of your race, we want to help you. 

Lack of understanding

There is also often a lack of understanding between the patient and the treating professional. They may have trouble relating to each other if the patient is a minority, but the professional is not. Minorities face unique challenges. This can also lead to drop-out from therapy. 

Villa Tranquil Recovery wants to help women of all ages, races, and sexual orientations. We want to help you today. Call now at 866-697-7573 for more information about how we can help you. Our staff cannot wait to speak to you.
