Addiction affects people differently, and by gaining a deeper understanding of who you are, we’re able to design the type of treatment plan you need. The better we get to know you and your loved ones, the more we can help you become the person you deserve to be.
Before starting treatment, we suggest taking care of any family, work, legal, and other personal issues. It’s best to deal with them now so you won’t have to later.
Even before treatment begins, there are steps you can take to make returning from rehab and transitioning back to life easier. Getting your personal affairs in order now can alleviate stress and help avoid a potential relapse in the future.
Here are a few suggestions to make the journey on the road to recovery smoother:
Addiction is a disability, which means that by law you’re entitled to take time off work without disclosing the reason for the leave of absence. Ask your doctor or our medical staff to learn more about “The Family Leave Act” and employment rights.
Legal problems often go hand in hand with addiction. Notify your attorney of pending court dates or arrange for someone to be present at any scheduled hearings.
Substance abuse affects more than just the addict’s health and well-being. It can take an emotional and physical toll on the lives of loved ones. Spend some time talking with those closest to you about your upcoming rehab and let them know you’re sorry for the problems caused by your addiction. Starting the healing process now can give you a head start to a lasting recovery.
