You are about to embark on a journey of self-discovery. It is okay to be nervous and anxious about going into rehab. At this point in your life, drugs and alcohol have become a norm if not the main focus of your lifestyle. ABT is about to change all of that and awaken you to your full potential.
At ABT’s facility, you will engage with others who are struggling to overcome drugs and alcohol like yourself, reflect on your physical and mental health with master’s level therapists, and learn about the science behind addiction to better prepare you for life stressors. This means attending the gym, talking about the hard stuff you have been running from, and learning to laugh and have fun with others again.
We want you to be prepare for your time with the ABT family and licensed medical practitioners. Don’t forget to bring personal toiletry items, fitness clothes, and cigarettes, if you smoke. If you are unsure if what you want to bring is acceptable, checkout our What Not to Bring List.
