There are four stages of the alcohol rehab process which are treatment initiation, early abstinence, maintaining abstinence, and advanced recovery. The first stage consists of the individual actively deciding to participate in the treatment and accept that abstinence is the goal.
The second stage will be the hardest because you will suffer from withdrawal symptoms and physical cravings. This stage is where you have to mentally and emotionally ready for a roller coaster, but remain strong and never forget the goal. You want to avoid any triggers that may cause you to relapse. The third stage is where you want to improve your physical health as well as rebuild healthy relationships with family and friends. You also want to develop a drug-free lifestyle and learn about different employment opportunities. In the last stage, you want to develop a routine schedule and build relationships with people who will not influence drinking habits. You want to find ways that will lead to a healthy and happy life.
