The decision to enter into a rehab program is one for which you should feel pride. However, as you are thinking about what will happen to your loved ones, those positive emotions can turn into anxiety and even refusal to enter into the program at all.
Whether you have human or furry children, you'll want to ensure that they are cared for. Asking a relative or family member to look after them is an option. Depending on the age of your children, they may prove old enough for legal emancipation. As for your pets, look into long-term boarding options if no one can watch them. You may also be able to hire a long-term sitter. If the pets are from a rescue group, the rescue may temporarily re-home them for you. You may want to check with a rescue group regardless to learn about fosters.
Expressing your concerns to the rehab facility is important because the staff there may know of nonprofit and government options. You could also call your health insurance company to find out if any options are available through that avenue. In addition, you can speak with guidance counselors at your children's school to learn about services. While you may want to keep your rehab stay private, letting your children's school know what is happening can prove ameliorative for the kids.
When you are considering obtaining treatment, you should speak with your job to find out what type of coverage and pay is available for long-term absences. You may also have enough sick days that you have the ability to take off from work for a protracted period of time. Making a phone call to your health insurance company is imperative. Also, you can ask if payment plans are available at the rehab so that you do not have to pay the full sum at once.
Keeping in touch with your loved ones is important, especially when you want to maintain and rebuild bridges. Find out if the facility places any limitations on how you can do so. For example, you may have the ability to speak with them live over a computer, or you may need to talk to them on monitored phone calls. Keep in mind that while communicating is important, you do want to focus on yourself too.
Finding out what the possibilities are for your loved ones to visit you is also powerful. While inviting them to come all of the time detracts from your personal goals at the facility, knowing that a scheduled visit is approaching can help to keep you motivated. You'll want to show your loved ones how much you have progressed.
Before you let the anxiety of what will happen to your loved ones overwhelm you and stifle your efforts, know that options are available.
