So i went and detoxed off of alcohol and my medication at the psyche ward in the hospital. I didnt know how bad coming off benzos would be i never abused them took as prescribed. (Well maybe not bc i was drinking) so it was a horrific detox. Im almost 2 weeks sober from everything… the hospital applied for a grant for me to go into this 6 month rehab. The place is really nice it feels like a college campus. But they dont have much aa. They use cognitive behavioral therapy. Which is fine but there is so much down time… i dont know if i can do 6 months of sitting around doing nothing that has relapse written all over it. Alot of guys from my homegroup said they relapsed when they were here. Alot of them said the salvation army for 6 months would be a much better bet. And getting off the medication was rough but worth it. It opens alot of doors i can get into the sally now, and halfway houses. Any thoughts?
I needed to remove myself from my situation and people for 30 days so rehab was necessary for me to break my daily routine of getting wasted every nite. 1 on 1 therapy really helped me in treatment to identify the causes, past traumas I’d been drowning in alcohol. Im praying for you my friend
Yeah this is 6 months i can never seem to get more than 90 days. So i thought the physical seperation would help alot
Yeah im definetly taking advantage of everything i can here l
