You think you have a problem with alcohol, and you have tried everything you can to stop on your own, and nothing works. You vacillate between “I’m not that bad”, and “I need help”, but don’t know how to go about getting the help you need. You think you may need to go to a detox and/or a rehab, but you are afraid.
What would it be like? How do you get in? Who do you ask for help and what resources are out there? How long do you need to stay? Do you need a medical detox? What IS a medical detox? How do you juggle the complexities of work and/or family life while you are there? How can friends and family be helpful, and what is their role?
On this Sunday’s show, co-hosts Ellie, Amanda and Jean, along with special guest Lisa, will discuss their own experiences going to detox and/or rehab, answer the questions above, and also discuss the common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, the difference between inpatient and outpatient rehab, the difference between a detox and a rehab, and more.
