Steps to prepare for rehab
If you’ve decided to check into a drug or alcohol recovery program, congratulations – you’ve made a conscious, albeit difficult, decision to get the help you need to turn your life around. It takes courage and faith that things can get better. It also takes some time to prepare for rehab. There are details and responsibilities in your life that won’t go away because you’re going into a recovery program.
Making arrangements in advance will allow you to focus totally on recovery and prevent distractions that could hamper your efforts. You’ll be much happier once you’ve completed your program not having a laundry list of lingering responsibilities and problems waiting for your return. And it’ll be easier to maintain sobriety and draw on the lessons you’ve learned if your stress is at a low level.
