Going to Treatment Isn’t a Vacation

Going to a rehabilitation facility might give you a vacation from your job, your family life, or your everyday tasks. Treatment could be a way to get away from your current situation to rest and reset. Rehab is all those things, but it may not be what you constitute a normal vacation. You may live in a fancy beach house during your stay, but that does not mean that you will be laying on the beach all day tanning in a rehab.

Rehabilitation centers create treatment plans that are configured to your addiction to give you a foundation for long-term sobriety. This means that the center will be looking out for you and your recovery, but they may not do it in a way that you will necessarily enjoy like a vacation. There is order in these facilities that you may frown upon instead of having the freedom that you are used to. Some of the aspects of treatment include detox, rules and regulations, and attendance and participation.

Detox

Some facilities include detoxification programs while others insist on the completion of detox before entering. It does not matter where the detox takes place. To begin the process of treatment, you must first be sobered.

Rules and Regulations

The rules and regulations vary from center to center. The fact is that you will have to follow the rules to stay in treatment. Part of this is to spark the willingness that is needed in recovery and eliminate entitlement issues. Most facilities do not allow locks on the doors, for instance. Rules must be followed in time management, attendance, and other restrictions that are regulated for living a different life in sobriety.

Attendance and Participation

To get the most out of your rehab experience, attendance and participation is highly endorsed. Suiting up and showing up will give you the tools that you need to commit to a new life in recovery. Education and therapy are offered to teach you coping skills on how to live free of drugs and alcohol. Participation in therapy and group sessions is required to help you see the value of having relationships in recovery. The interaction with others who are going through the same experiences and challenges that early sobriety may bring about is to teach you how to utilize support outside the facility.
