Overcoming Common Fears - An Interview

Common Fears

I believe from my personal experience the most common fear, when you are leaving rehab, the first time in a chair is you are starting over.  You are going back into a life but you’re really a whole different person.  And your perspective has changed.  The way you live has changed.  So the biggest fear is just the unknown.  How will I adapt?  How will my family and friends accept me?  The best piece of advice I could give someone to overcome that fear is to look at it as a great adventure.  You’ve been given a second chance.  And really, that’s truly what it is. And often times, people don’t get to have a second chance at life with a new perspective.  Look at it as the positive that it can truly be.
