Yes, this place gets slow during holidays and weekends....it's about the timing.
Peeps have this tendency to self medicate and then dive into a rehab before and after a holiday because they have have/had to spend quality time with family.
Two years ago I had a panic attack four days before thanksgiving and ran to rehab to get away from my parents.....gawd that was stupid. But a good panic attack will do that.
So at any time when you see someone new, please welcome them. As you all know, the holidays can trip triggers!
