What to and Not Bring to Treatment

You are about to embark on a journey of self-discovery. It is okay to be nervous and anxious about going into rehab. At this point in your life, drugs and alcohol have become a norm if not the main focus of your lifestyle. Recovery in Motion is about to change all of that and awaken you to your full potential.
