Choosing to go to rehab is a huge step that you should feel proud of. However, the move to a sober and healthy life is not easy, but with simple steps that can get you ahead, you will soon see that it was worth all the effort. There are several things that need to be known before choosing a drug or alcohol rehabilitation center, and these can also prove critical in regards to how well you allow for this step to change you.
1) People do not have any reason to lie to you – especially the ones close to you. All the support and encouragement you are receiving from those around you because of this decision is not all formality, but actual care and support. If you have had a drug or alcohol intervention focused on you, then that does not mean they are trying to make your decisions for you or control you, it means that they care. Understanding that you have people who care about you helps you recover better and make great progress in rehab.
