We talk a lot about drug and alcohol rehab. That is only one step in a long process. The real goal is a great and fulfilling life after addiction. Drugs and alcohol can consume and control your life. That is the bad news. The positive side of that is you will have a lot of time to fill with wonderful stuff. You can certainly learn that language you always wanted to understand. Time to develop your skill with a musical instrument, yes you will be able to do that. Volunteer and help others? Same answer.
