It hurts, in drug rehab. I’d be lying to you if I said it didn’t hurt. Or that it wasn’t hard. Or that it was anything other than one brutal mother of a fight, the kind of drag-out, gloves-off battle that only a fool would approach with an air of frivolity.
I’d also be lying to you if I said that drug rehab doesn’t work…and that it isn’t, in the end, the most important thing you’ll ever do.
Yeah, drug rehab hurts, and yeah, drug rehab’s a struggle. So it goes. The truth is that that’s how it’s got to be, that there’s really just no other way for drug rehab healing to happen. Drug rehab is hard because drug addiction is a formidable adversary…and no drug rehab patient ever gets sober for good without suffering a little along the way.
But it’s worth it, drug rehab is. More worth it than anything you could possibly imagine. Drug rehab that works is drug rehab that will give you back your life, and yourself; drug rehab that works is drug rehab that makes tomorrow a thing worth looking forward to…which when you really get down to it is just about the only thing that could ever actually matter.
