First of all, in the US, you can’t just go to rehab. Most insurance companies force you to fail at outpatient treatment before you can go inpatient.

Assuming he’s still motivated to get well after failing at outpatient treatment, (yeah, the system s*cks) it is more of an educational experience than anything else.

Most rehabs are very nice facilities, like high-end college dorms. He will spend his days going to lectures and meetings. He’ll learn about his illness, learn how to manage it, learn how to rearrange his life when he gets out so that he can stay sober. He’ll be fed well and encouraged to exercise, too.

Most places have special programs that will involved the rest of his family as well. That means if he has any baggage with his dad or mom, it will get talked about. At age 19 the family piece might not be required like it is with younger people.

Good luck.
