Nothing is off limits in rehab. Fairly quickly, people’s modesty goes because we’re talking about bowel function, bladder function. We talk about sexual function, sexuality, dating, intimacy as a key component in life, and something to be addressed and educated about while people are in rehab. I often times tell people, “I’m going to give you a lot of information about this, and I’m going to give you introductory information about sexual function, dating, intimacy. Some of this maybe something you really want to hear right now, and some of this maybe something you put on a back shelf. A couple of months from now give me a call and we can talk more about it.” We like to make sure that we’re addressing it up front and meet people where they are if they have concerns or worries about that.
