Drug an alcohol counseling

So i have to talk to a drug and alcohol counselor to continue my treatment at my doctors office. Because i checked into rehab im now considered a dual diagnosis. It kinda sucks because ive quit drinking and have no cravings anymore. My first appointment is tomorrow and they said it will be two hours. Im already an anxious mess. Im worried i will have a panic attack and get paranoid.

Im trying not to think about it because it will become a self fulfilling prophecy. But i dont do well at counselor appointments. I get so nervous.


Good for you! That’s a huge accomplishment.

Congrats on quitting. You got this!

Don’t let yourself fall into the trap where you swing between use

Not trying to be negative, but you’re just clean, and you need the extra help to keep it that way

This could be the difference between relapsing or staying sober for longer

Best of luck and try not to worry

These people are here to help us

I totally get this. It might help to think of it as having no rules and being something that belongs to you not them. What I mean by that is, they don’t have expectations of you, you rather have them to use as a tool to be successful in staying clean and sober. It’s your therapy, not theirs.

Well i had my appointment. It was just two hours of signing papers. I started intensive outpatient care on monday. 3 hour meetings monday tuesday and thursday. I feel like its a bit of overkill for me.
