This then has many advantages and means that you can use rehab as an ‘escape’ and as some much needed time to recover personally.
If you are trying to overcome a drug or alcohol addiction in your normal day to day life then this will be very hard because you will have all of the various ‘triggers’ that normally set you off. For instance if you used to use drugs on arriving home from work, then you will find yourself feeling that urge every time you get home from work and craving the contraband due to this imprinted habit.
Alternatively you might find that if you need alcohol rehab that you always drink with dinner, and this might then mean that when you eat dinner at home you struggle not to reach for a bottle. With rehab centers those normal cues and triggers aren’t there, and thus you don’t get the same reaction that leaves you craving something you shouldn’t have.
