There are typically two rehabilitation options for substance abuse, namely inpatient and outpatient treatment.
Although both options are fundamentally focused on rehabilitation, each treatment option is designed to offer different types of support, for different levels of addiction.
There are many individuals who wonder what life after rehab will be like for their loved ones. The question is often “how can I support my loved one who is in recovery?”
Because living with someone who has undergone rehabilitation can be a very sensitive dynamic, it’s important for us to understand what we can do to support the recovering individual's process as much as we can.

To have a goal is to have a challenge and to have a challenge brings excitement and joy. It also helps us channel our energy towards something positive and advantageous.
