Our expert says:
You've done well, so far, in realizing the mistake and stopping on your own. And AA is a good idea. If you are actually off whatever you were on, ( it depends on the particular substance ) for 8 weeks, there's no need for rehab as such, as it's mainly needed to ensure safely coming off some of the more tenacious drugs. Check with AA if they know of any economical source of personal counselling for you, and maybe FAMSA can advise, too, or even Lifeline, as you are wise to seek proper counselling to stay stopped --- and at least you are saving the cost of the substance(s) you were abusing. COncentrate on getting yourself right, and maybe send him a message that, inspired by his example, you have stopeed, and stayed clean for 8 weeks, and would appreciate his encouragement and support to help you continue in sobriety
