Life After Treatment

Addiction can be catastrophic to everyone in its path. Seeking professional help to get you through this challenging time is imperative. In the spirit of keeping realistic expectations in sight, you must understand that life after treatment has its challenges as well. Knowledge is half the battle, though, so you are in the right place.

After treatment, you are given the opportunity to put all you have learned into practice. Staying focused on your coping strategies, your physical and mental health, and maintaining healthy habits will ensure you stay on the path to recovery. In the beginning, consider staying away from situations, people, or places that present a more significant number of triggers. The friend you used to get high with, the park you met your dealer at to purchase drugs, or happy hour with your work friends may all be more trouble than they are worth at this point in your recovery journey. Focus minimizing triggers where you can as every single day that passes without relapse adds to your confidence and your assuredness that you are strong enough and you can beat addiction.

The support system you created during your treatment program doesn’t just disappear when you complete treatment. Let them be a part of your recovery journey. Consider joining support groups, clubs that prioritize sobriety, or participate in activities regularly frequented by others that are just as passionate as you are about sobriety. Maintaining these positive relationships will give you a feeling of security, it will minimize loneliness, and help you stay accountable to yourself.

Lastly, remember to be a cheerleader for yourself. Recovery isn’t always easy! Make sure you talk to yourself with the same love and respect you would have when chatting with a loved one. Don’t put yourself down, don’t beat yourself up, and please don’t damage your self-image. You chose to get help, and that is an amazing accomplishment. Don’t forget the enormity of what you have already accomplished.
