I Have a Rehab Question?

Question by : I have a Rehab Question?
I am a 24 year old woman who has battled with drug and alcohol addiction for about 7 years. I have gotten in some trouble with the law (DUI and possension of various drugs) over the last year. I have finally agreed to go into a rehabilitation center ( I live outside of Chicago) and I am having trouble finding places that best suite me. I have tried out patient therapy and counseling over the years but they don’t really seem to help me. My family wants to get me into a sober living facility but I am not exactly sure what I am looking for. Is there any website or phone number I can call to help better figure out what would work best for me. Any suggestions will help. Thank you

Answer by just wondering
I live outside of Chicago also and found that their rehab centers are not really up to standard . Everywhere I came to contact with was mostly mental health places first that had substance abuse programs but not the other way around . I ended up going to a wonderful place Brighton Hospital in Michigan . It’s about a 5 hour drive but it was worth it . You get away from everything for a bit and just work on yourself . My brother ended up going also and it saved his life .Sober living should really come after inpatient care . Good luck 🙂

    Why don’t you make an appointment with your family doctor and go in and ask him/her for some recommendations of facilities in Your area. You can discuss any particular concerns about certain aspects of the Program you need with your doctor and hopeful he/she will be able to help you narrow down y9our options. That is what my loved on did and he has been clean and sober for 4 1/2 yrs. Gook luck.
