Drug and alcohol rehab ain’t for everybody. No it’s really not. First of all, it was made for people who have drug and alcohol addictions. That’s the first thing. The second thing is that drug and alcohol rehab is for people who are ready to deal with the problems that they have. I went to alcohol rehab, myself. I realized, while I was on the inside, that the only people who successfully made it through the program were the people who were ready to deal with their problems. That’s really who drug and alcohol rehab programs are made for. Who else would go to an alcohol or drug rehab? Although being a drug addict or an alcoholic is already torture enough, going to rehab without being ready could be the worst torture imaginable. Rehab is hard. And no matter how badly a person wants to get through it successfully, it’s never a piece of cake. It’s something that takes a hell of a lot of work and it is only effective if you come to put in the necessary work. That’s what I did and that’s how I made it through alcohol rehab successfully. You could make it through drug and alcohol rehabilitation too if you come to work. Good luck.
