Rehab is short for rehabilitation. Rehab is a place where people with serious ailments are taken to and trained on how to manage these ailments. Ailments include, drug and alcohol addiction, mental illness and criminal tendencies.
What to expect at a rehab
The rehab is open for all to visit and doesn’t restrict anyone from leaving. There are medical experts readily available to attend to patients. Most patients come on their own while others are brought there by their relations.
At the rehab, the patients are allowed to form groups where they are counseled by medical professionals and share individual experiences. Sometimes, their family members are allowed to partake in this group, this gives the patients a sense of belonging and makes them feel at home.
As a patient you will have to go through the rigorous of trying to conquer your ailment. If you are an addict to alcohol, be ready to spend time without alcohol that is what the rehab is meant for. After passing through the stages of denial and rebranding you will be able to conquer the addiction and start a new life. At the end of the treatment, the patient is expected to come out renewed and refreshed.
