What is Involved in a Rehab Program?
Many people get the idea that drug rehab has to be this serious thing where you sit in a room and tell horror stories from your life of drug addiction and then endure the long-lasting terrible pains of detox in a strange, clinical hospital dormitory. If this is what you picture drug rehab to be like, then you’ve got it all wrong!
Holistic Rehab Includes Healthy Activities
It’s important to remember that rehab itself is just another part of your life. It’s a very important part, and can be extremely challenging and hard, but it doesn’t need to be all tears and pain.
Think about it like this: Shakespeare’s most famous dramas are very sad and powerful, but he makes them so much more powerful by adding in comic relief. Without the comic relief—a breath of fresh air—the story is too depressing, and loses depth. The same thing goes for drug rehab.
You need to get outside and do fun activities with your recovery group. This will help remind you that rehab is just a part of life, and to find balance, you need to eat well and exercise and—well, why not go horseback riding on the beach or listen to some live music?
