I have just recently accepted the fact that I need help and am departing for 30 day rehab on Jan 4th. I am excited about getting healthy again but scared about my job.
My question for everyone: What is the best thing to tell your boss when you leave for 30 days? Do people treat you differently when you get back to work (is there a weird tension)?
I have a pretty high profile job with a large company. I know many people suggest that you simply say “I am taking a 30 day leave for family reasons”. Yes, you are not required to say anything but I simply feel that it would make the situation more awkward when I return.
