If you’ve never been to residential addiction treatment before, the typical experience goes like this:
- Every day, there’s someone new checking in as someone else checks out;
- Everyone is at different stages in there recovery process;
- People are constantly coming and going;
- There is very little continuity.
Even in the better programs, there’s an ongoing sense of hustle, bustle, and disruption. There is a fundamental lack of stability and security, and all of this wears on you emotionally.
Moreover, it impedes your addiction recovery process.
