BEYOND DRUG REHAB
SUCCEEDING IN LIFE & RECOVERY BEYOND TREATMENT
For those of whom have experienced the revolving door of going in and out of drug rehab, and of ongoing relapses and the many pains associated with it, there is often a common denominator that places the addict or alcoholic at risk for further relapse. Our goal is NOT to simply help get you through treatment, it is to help prepare you for life in sobriety on a number of levels. It’s true that proper transition back into life is a key component, but more important is the reality that each individual client (and family) must be viewed and treated uniquely. What we do here, and why often succeed more so than other treatment centers here, is based entirely on devising aftercare plans that are best suited to the individual, from work to recovery to family and so on…
SOBER LIVING HOME
Even though home is home, sometimes you just can’t go back. Too many reminders and bad memories can be obstacles in your recovery. You may not be able to forget your past troubles of drug and alcohol addiction, but you can certainly build a better now and future! Sober living homes give you an opportunity to do just that. Here you will meet people who are in the same boat as you, who you can relate to and feel comfortable expressing yourself.
Athletes and the many successful business people have their own personal coaches. So, it stands to reason, during the most difficult time in your life – recovery from drug and alcohol addiction – you should and deserve to have a recovery coach in your corner. Why go it alone when you can have the support from someone who knows where you have been and is willing to help you get to a much better place and build a healthy lifestyle that works for you.
Aftercare planning should be the last phase and an integral part of your recovery program. When you first seek professional help for your drug and alcohol addiction, you should be administered a complete evaluation to diagnose your current situation and determine what is best for you. Your recovery plan should be comprehensive and customized to fit your situation and adjusted along the way when need be. Once you complete drug rehab, it is imperative to understand what to expect next and create a structure and support system to ensure lasting sobriety success.
When you are in recovery, you may try to resist meetings. They say, what you resist persists. It’s understandable that it may seem forced or even cultish, but there are gems to be found. Whether it’s traditional 12-step, Non-12-Step, SMART Recovery or other methods, the structure and camaraderie are what can render you great benefits. So, go in with an open mind and the fortitude to persevere in your road to recovery. Who knows, maybe your story will captivate and transform someone there to lasting sobriety!
ENRICHING YOUR LIFE OUTSIDE OF RECOVERY
There are many gifts experienced within the recovery process, and they are unique to each and every individual who experiences it. Many of these gifts come from enriching our lives and state of being. Whether this means finding the job you enjoy, or going back to school, or even picking up a couple of hobbies that always seemed to fall by the wayside in the past, an integral part of the recovery process has to do with how you live and enjoy life outside of matters relating to drug or alcohol addictions, or recovery in this case. Build value in your life, re-connect with family and friends, and re-learn to enjoy the many small gifts in life that we so often take for granted or simply cannot seem to fit in our lives.
Without getting too corny, this is the brotherhood or sisterhood of all time. Recovery is an endless journey, upon which you will encounter many different people and obstacles. Although your family and friends are well meaning, there’s nothing like being around someone who can relate to your experiences with drug and alcohol addiction. During and after drug rehab, you can form incredible bonds and wonderful friendships with those who have passed through the same doors as you.
