Today is officially my first day in rehab, I am quite nervous but also excited at the same time, the hard work begins today. The centre I am staying in is quite modern and is in a rather large building with some amazing views. I was given a tour around the facilities and I am very happy with it they have a private room for watching TV and socialising with other patients as well as a gym, a dining room for the meals that are prepared throughout the day and beautiful gardens.

I started the day by talking to one of the medical professionals at the centre, he was very nice and explained what the plan for the week was. After he explained what I should expect this week he then did a full medical assessment to prepare me for my detox from alcohol. Once this was done I was free to go up to my private room and make myself at home, after this was done I had something to eat and then when straight to bed for an early night.

The most proven way to recover from addiction is by undertaking a rehabilitation programme, I am currently receiving treatment from a drug and alcohol rehab clinic in Spain called Step One Recovery who are part of Rehab Clinics Group.
