Cindy, I am a 46 year old woman who drinks about 2 liters of alcohol a day. I started drinking when I lost my job and my husband and I separated. I know I am an Alcoholic and need to go to rehab. What can I expect at rehab?
Laura, the first step is to stop drinking, so you can enter detox for 48 to 72 hours to deal with withdrawal symptoms. Then you will enter rehab to address abstinence from alcohol. Rehab will help you to abstain by addressing cravings, psychological dependence, and relapse prevention.
