Returning home after inpatient treatment can be a rather daunting task. Drug rehab and alcohol rehab can’t end when you leave the hospital; rather it is the beginning of a lifetime of recovery and sober living. Those that don’t establish the right sober support after drug & alcohol rehab are much more likely to relapse, and 40-60% of patients relapse according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

PROTECT AGAINST PAWS*
There are two stages of withdrawal. The first stage is the acute stage, which usually lasts at most a few weeks. During this stage, you may experience physical withdrawal symptoms. But every drug is different, and every person is different. Many patients get and need medical assistance during this period in a treatment center.
The second stage of withdrawal is called the Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS). During this stage you’ll have fewer physical symptoms, but more emotional and psychological withdrawal symptoms. This may begin as late as after six months of sobriety and may last up to a year or longer, especially if the addiction period was long. It is essential to get Sober Support after drug & alcohol rehab.
