You can’t fight what you can’t see

Drug rehab is, for many addicts, an unknown entity: a mysterious and mystifying process, a journey with no discernible beginning or end. At the same time, drug rehab is in a very significant sense a drug addict’s last best hope for sobriety, and so it is that self-education is vital to the drug recovery process. If drug recovery is going to help you get better, you’ve got to understand it as it actually is: how it works, and why it’s successful. Drug treatment, in the end, is and can only be a patient-driven undertaking. Please, for your own sake, resolve to learn enough to make the thing go.

Think of it like this: You can’t fight what you can’t see. For drug rehab programs to be effective, drug rehab patients have got to face the recovery process with open eyes, and open minds; drug rehab is only effective when it’s grounded in a firm comprehension of the truth as it actually is. Drug rehab, importantly, is the sort of undertaking that never succeeds through illusion. If you’re going to get better, you’ve got to face the music.

And the facing, importantly, is something that every drug rehab patient has ultimately got to do for himself. The success or failure of your drug rehab program is in the most fundamental sense up to you; you’re the one who’s got to get healthy in drug rehab, and you’re the one who’s got to make the healing happen. To put it bluntly: No drug rehab center can take you where you aren’t willing to go. Drug rehab that works, in the end, is drug rehab that’s made to work by the patients it serves.

And so, again, there’s no excuse for ignorance in the drug rehab process. As a drug rehab patient, it’s incumbent upon you to learn everything you need to know: about how drug rehab works, and what makes drug rehab go; about what drug rehab demands of drug rehab patients, and how you can make healing a reality. In the world of drug addiction and drug recovery, what you don’t know very certainly can hurt you.
