I really thought that you were not allowed to check out of these rehab places before you were ready to check out.  I have a friend who went in to rehab (badly needed it) and then she checked out and said she was fine.  She is drinking again and this time more than the last time?

From what I understand, you are strongly encouraged not to check out early, but they can't stop someone who refuses to listen or breaks the rules. Maybe it's different if you're forced to go by a court, but generally rehab centers aren't prisons, so unfortunately they can't force someone to stay against their will.

Absolutely not! I was engaged after three months and we are getting
married in four months. We also have had a long engagement of almost
two years. Its best to do that because you can really get to know the
person you are going to marry while working on the understanding of
commitment and you can also change your mind if you want to, When you
know, you know. If you have doubts, there is probably something wrong.
Most pastors recommend pre marital counseling and i admit, it really is
helpful! Good luck =)

Even though many people enter rehab reluctantly, no one can force the patient to stay in rehab. Of course, when he or she enters they usually sign a contract or set up a roadmap of how their treatment progresses and the length of time it should take. Like many commitments, hiccups do occur, especially amongst addicts. Trying to change your life drastically can be very difficult and the disruptions that occur during treatment can spark outrage and resistance, often times leading to an exit – or desire to exit – treatment. Nonetheless, it may be the type of treatment your friend had. There are various kinds: holistic, individual, group, etc. that all confine differently depending on the type of person. Perhaps she was just in the wrong one. Finding the right rehab center may take a few attempts, but living with the addiction is not worth the struggle. Hope this helps!

Leaving Rehab Early is usually a Mistake. Those individuals
who decide to leave addiction rehab early are usually making a mistake. It can
mean that all the good work they’ve done up until that point gets
wasted. This is because this type of treatment is a process and in order to get
the most from it the individual has to see the process through to the end. By
leaving rehab early the individual will be taking an unreasonable gamble with
their recovery. In most cases they will be sabotaging their own attempts to
create a better future.

I have never been to formal rehab for anything but I do know that if you are an addict of any kind, the road to recovery is not over when rehab ends be it a six week program or a two year program.  Essentially after you decide that your life is not manageable due to your addiction & you seek help, it will be a daily lifelong commitment to recover.  Once again, it is a decision to make.  If you can only stay sober while in Rehab, then you will need to set up a program for yourself where you are either going to a meeting each day or have a sponsor of sorts.  Some of my friends actually left rehab with other people in rehab and lived together to give one another support.  You have to be careful though because addicts will enable one another.  It's an on going battle.  I never pay attention to anyone who says that they have overcome their addiction.  They may have it under control  & hopefully for the remainder of their lives, but it is a disease of the mind & while mostly psychological requires attention every single day.

Thank God my friend is still admitted in a Recovery Treatment Place. I thought he would not stay there for a week, but he's been there for about 3 months now. Well, maybe it's really depends on the person if he/she really wants to recover.
