    depends on the rehab center. they will obviously not let you drink or do drugs. you will see a doctor and a therapists. you will have group therapy. you will probably get a sponsor and start working the 12 steps. you will probably go to bed and wake up at a scheduled time. you will be fed 3 meals a day. there will likely also be recreational therapy and art therapy type things. you will probably share a bedroom with one other person. it would be helpful to start a journal while you are there if you don’t do that already. good luck, it is not as bad as it sounds.
