You can be quite grateful to alcohol rehab centers if they have been known to save a friend or loved one’s life. Sometimes patients who have recovered in alcohol rehab centres want a way to give back to the community that helped them so much.
Here is a list of ways that you can help alcohol rehab centres –
- Volunteer at a local rehab addiction center and give your time to some of the patients so they feel less lonely going through the process
- Talk to Goodwill and see if they will help donate books to the center as reading is often recommended as a distraction to keep the patient from drinking alcohol
- Plan a program that includes outings to museums or other amusements for patients that have recovered a bit to help keep them distracted from the need to use alcohol
- Organize a support group that helps serious alcoholics integrate back into the community by helping them get jobs, bank accounts, clothing and other things that less fortunate addicts might lack
- Donate your own money directly to the rehab center
- Purchase linens or food for the alcohol rehab addiction center
- Put together a fundraiser to help raise money for alcoholic rehab centres; hold a dance, concert or an auction to raise money
- Have the patients make crafts or baked goods that can be sold so the money can be used to support the rehab center; cooking an creativity are good projects for raising money
- Organize nature walks for residents of alcohol addiction rehab centres
- Have local pet owners with nice pets bring dogs or other animals into the center (provided residents are not allergic) so the people inside getting treatment can bond with them, laugh and feel less lonely.
