In “Rules of Rehabs” they explain the rules of what a general rehab would have. For example, some rules are no cell phones or computers, no reading material that is not related to recovery or spiritual, no male and female relationships allowed and some have no t.v at all. Now some of these rules are understandable like the no cell phone rule so that you can be isolated from your previous life and so that people do not call you all the time asking where you are at and trying to get high with you. But some other rules like the male and female relationship rule makes no sense. Some of these people will be isolated for months at a time and need to be able to talk to people of the other sex so when they are back out into the world, it is like talking to a female is a crime or that is all they will do and fall back with doing drugs if the female asks them too. The people in rehab need to be isolated from the outside world but not from the people that are going through the same program as them. A opposite sex could influence that person to stay off the drugs and have someone to talk too when they think that using again is the only option. If that is the case then that person will be getting help outside of rehab, just like the program that we want to start. Having people to encourage and motivate you is the best way to stay off
