Dating after drug and alcohol rehab
Find a support group While the obvious solution is to find a 12-step group that deals with the addict’s individual drug-of-choice, this can also mean simply finding a network of people who can be there when the addict begins to stumble.
They are a shoulder to cry on and a face to yell at.
It can be existing family and friends, or people from church or even co-workers.
The key is to find others, whether they be former addicts or not, who can be there and lend a hand when the possibility of relapse becomes a slippery slope.
An unhealthy environment for someone not strong enough to remain committed to recovery is the surest way to relapse.
It turned out, you really had an addiction, as did all of the “different” people around you. While you missed your real life, you were adapting to life at an inpatient facility.
