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.
