Patient discussion about rehab

Q. how long should rehab be? if someone has been alcoholic for only a few months, how long should rehab take?

A. i'm not an expert but i had the chance to work with drug addicted. from what i know it really depends on the patient. You can be an addict for 12 years or 12 months- you need to go threw phases in order to go on. some time you move a phase very quickly and sometimes you get stuck in one phase…

Q. What is the second phase of alcohol rehab? I guess the first one is well known... admitting you are addicted, but then what?

A. anybody??? advises about the second phase of rehab??

Q. Can I have her committed to rehab? Hello. I really need some help. My girl friend is 44, I’m 56 yrs old. She's stubborn and will not seek the help she needs. It's driving me crazy and I am unable to help her. Alcoholism is terrible. We are paying the mortgage on a beautiful home together, and I just can't leave her. I've got my own psychological problems that I am dealing with--anxiety, temper and depression. Can I have her committed to rehab?

A. I need to correct my response since this is about a girl friend, not a legal spouse, unless she is a common law wife, since you may be, depending on your state. You may have to be a legal guardian or next of kin. It depends on the laws in your state.

If the person has become a hazard to themselves or to others, especially children, there may be legal recourse with a judge no matter what your relationship.

Others are pointing out that unless a person is wanting help, there is a low success rate for recovery. Someone forced to go to rehab, may go right back to the old ways within the same hour they get out of rehab. Some people end in rehab multiple times this way.

Its not a pretty picture of life. Its not something you can read much about anywhere. But its real. Ask a rehab tech and they could probably tell you stories that will "fold your ears back".

You may have a county mental health agency with a rehab center, instead of the state hospital. Check your phone bo
