Drinking Day 8: Designing my own rehab

Eight days of drinking has led to me to this conclusion: I must either go to rehab or, after looking over many plans and pricing of rehab, design my own.

I am opting to create my own and save the $30,000 dollars — instead, spending wisely on my own version.

Details to follow ….

  1. We paid $15,000 for rehab for me.
    Now, in Minnesota, insurance has to cover it!
    To be honest, rehab didn’t help me stay sober. I learned a little bit, but it wasn’t until I had a public humiliation at my yoga studio that I made my own rehab too.(WFS, blogging, telling friends and family, AA, life coach, therapist, and more. I went while hog!! LOL)
    It is my firm belief that we must all do this, and our path will be different for all of us.


    1. You are describing exactly what I want to do! And, ironically, the rehab that I have been talking with is in Minnesota. (It’s too cold, I decided.) Maybe you should write a book — I would be following your advice exactly!
      Thank you!

  2. I made my own rehab, too! I didn’t have $30K to spend. I called it “spa week” and it seemed to be everything I needed. I agree with Wendy, we all find our path and it’s not the same one for everyone. Looking forward to hearing how you get on with this! xo

    1. I am going to a “spa week,” but I am calling it rehab. There will be lots of mediation and self-reflection and really wholesome food. It will be a tiny fraction of $30K, but it’s still something I would never do unless I thought it would help to get away from everything for a week. Next Wednesday is D-day. I must say, I am looking forward to it a lot more than I was rehab in Minnisota!

    1. You are right about no technology. The Wifi is spotty, so my phone doesn’t work most of the time and I only get occasional internet service. This is probably a good thing. Nothing is more sobering than not being able to divert attention from one’s self for long periods of time. 😉
