Truth and lies about the social rehabilitation of drug addiction

A drug addict, after his detoxification, except for his "therapy" (abstinence from any drug use, abstinence from any criminal activities), has also to deal with his difficulties to confront or accept the social rules. And that is what rehabilitation is all about. To become able to accept the social rules is a long-term attempt to succeed in the following "rehabilitation" steps: a) Changes in the "way of thinking" b) Change of "life style" c) Development of "social skills" d) Development of "job skills" e) Cooperation with peers f) Know how to organize "free time"
