There is certainly no reason to be embarrassed about having a disease that you have little to no control over, but with that being said, privacy is still a serious concern for many patients.
It is important to keep in mind that it is definitely possible for your rehabilitation experience to be completely confidential. In this case, traveling for rehab is usually in order.
