When you sign up for a treatment program, you’re turning your life over to strangers. Granted, the doctors, therapists, house managers and others who are going to help you don’t stay strangers for long – especially at Sovereign Health. But the shock of the new can still be uncomfortable, and you probably have some very real concerns about what the next few months hold. Rightly so. We’re meeting you at a critical and vulnerable phase in your life, a time of major change and disruption. You know rehab is going to be a challenge; you know defeating the specter of addiction is going to be difficult and require a lot of effort. Plus, you know that in this time of crisis you are going have to rely upon the kindness of strangers. Don’t worry.
