Drug Rehab Expectations Washington DC

Most people have a preconceived idea or a set of expectations for drug rehab. Some of these may be unrealistic, such as expecting that drug rehab is a cure-all and once you leave, you’re cured.

Whatever your drug rehab expectations , the best way to address them is to call a variety of drug rehabs and talk to intake coordinators.
