Dealing with the Aftermath of Divorce

Recovery is a huge commitment. It requires focus, persistence, and mental fortitude. When treatment is complete, the transition to a life of sobriety can be difficult. Stress can multiple those difficulties and make things seem unbearable at times. Divorce can be devastating. In fact, sometimes the aftermath of divorce is more painful than the divorce itself. The aftermath of divorce can create a tremendous amount of additional stress when in recovery. For someone dealing with addiction, this additional stress may seem intolerable. Remember you are not alone, and remember you have choices, and make use of the resources that you have during your recovery.

A facility like Villa Tranquil offers a place to begin your recovery journey where you are surrounded by people that understand you, that understand your challenges, and that understand your addiction. With a team of professionals and a group of supportive peers, you will have the strength and the initiative to create the best life possible.

When dealing with the aftermath of divorce while in the beginning of the recovery journey, many times the addiction played a part in the culmination of the divorce. Often that creates feelings of guilt, failure, and even betrayal. These feelings are normal and to be expected. Remember though that while you can’t change the past, you are in control of your future. Work with a mentor and participate in therapy sessions to learn to make amends with your past and focus on your future. At Villa Tranquil, experienced professionals will teach you the skills you need to accept the things that you have no control over and to move forward with the positivity and strength from your newfound sobriety.

Taking responsibility for your actions, even those that occurred during the throes of addiction is a key step in the process of recovery. Embrace that responsibility, love yourself for who you are today, and remember that all of those experiences, even the ugly ones, brought you to this very day. Although the aftermath of divorce is painful, when memories surprise you and your heart aches with regret, be thankful for each and every one of those moments as they gave you the strength you needed to become the person you are today. Don’t doubt the worthiness of the person you are today. You are the perfect version of you and you are exactly who you need to be. With the myriad of emotions that come with divorce, sometimes immersion is the best strategy.

With Villa Tranquil, you will find yourself surrounded by people that believe in you and will help you navigate the rough waters of the aftermath of divorce. For more information, please contact Villa Tranquil at 214-799-3080.
