Before Going to the Rehab Center
When you contact our rehab center for the purposes of quitting an addictive substance, you will set an appointment date for you to go to the facility. Before you go into rehab, though, there are a few things you should take care of. Most importantly is that you should inform your family and friends that you will be checking in to rehab and will be gone for at least a couple weeks (assuming you are going into inpatient rehab). After that, make sure that your household is taken care of for the time you will be away. This can mean paying bills/rent in advance, getting someone to care for your pets or plants, and informing other important people about your impending absence.
Signing in to Rehab
When you arrive at the rehab center at the scheduled date, you will have to fill out some paperwork before you’re admitted, including signing waivers and informing the rehab center how the treatment will be covered financially, be it through cash, insurance, grants, or another way. Once done signing in, you will be taken into the actual facility.
Your First Few Hours at the Rehab Center
You will be shown around the facility and the quarters you will be sleeping in for the next few weeks. You will also have a series of evaluations to best determine how to treat your addiction. These tests include psychological and physical assessments.
The first stage of rehabilitation is detox if your addiction is strong enough to require it. During detox, you will likely experience a variety of withdrawal symptoms that range in intensity, but you can get through it successfully. Once detox is out of the way, the rest of rehab will feel much easier, and the chances of you quitting for good increases dramatically.
