Throughout the course of life, people are often presented with many challenging situations. These situations can be stressful and difficult to deal with. People cope with life challenges a variety of different ways. Using alcohol or drugs is sometimes a readily available coping mechanism that people turn to. Using substances to cope may quickly begin to negatively impact a person's life. If this is the case, a residential drug rehab center can be a helpful option. A drug rehab gives individuals a chance to have some time away from the challenges of their every day life.
