Are you ready for alcohol rehab? Have you missed key events in your kids’ lives because of your alcohol addiction? Have you lost your job because of your alcohol addiction? Are your relationships suffering because of your alcohol addiction? If you have answered yes to any of these questions, it is time to sober up and start living again.
The first step to making alcohol rehab successful for you is making the commitment to stop drinking. You have to want to be sober, to repair your relationships, to right some wrongs. Your commitment will help you on the journey to sobriety.
Alcohol rehab will help you go through withdrawal and will give you the needed counselling or therapy to identify the reasons why you turned to drinking in the first place. Rehab will also help identify ways to avoid relapsing in the future. Alcohol rehab will get you on the right aftercare path, possibly setting you up with a sponsor to call when needed, or with the right groups to meet with on a regular basis. Finding support amongst your peers can go a long way when trying to live a sober life.
After alcohol rehab, it is important to remove temptation from your life. This not only means not having alcohol in your home, but it may also mean distancing yourself from people who used to be friends. If some people don’t respect your goal to live a sober life, or if your previous relationship was built around drinking together, it will be difficult to fit them into your new life.
If you have gone to alcohol rehab before but have relapsed and returned to drinking, choose to learn from that experience rather than punish yourself for it. When you are ready to try alcohol rehab again, examine the circumstances around your last relapse and try to identify ways to avoid these circumstances this time around.
