Five Tips For Drug Addiction Recovery

Overcoming Denial During Addiction - The Bergand Group

Drug addiction recovery is a long road. Attending an intensive treatment program, or drug and alcohol detox, is only the first step to drug addiction recovery. Many times people face relapse because they don’t know that this process is never-ending and requires a lot of effort in their day-to-day lives. In order to obtain sobriety, and stay there, addicts should attend regular programs, find a group therapy, and surround themselves with healthy, non-using individuals. Once addicts are on the right path to recovery, they can implement a plan to prevent relapse.

5 Tips For Drug Addiction Recovery

  1. Your recovery is a priority. Hold your recovery higher than anything else during this time. Stay in touch with medically trained professionals, reflect on where you have come and where you want to go to ensure that you feel supported.
  2. Communication is key. Bottling up your emotions that surround your drug addiction recovery will make things difficult. Getting out your feelings, no matter how hard that may seem, will help you stay sober. Facing your fears in a sober environment will help you heal.
  3. Change your friends and environment. Often the friends you used drugs with aren’t your true friends. The same goes for places you used to frequent, such as bars or house parties. Changing your environment, and surrounding yourself with a great group of sober individuals, will show you that life after drug addiction exists.
  4. Exercise and improve your diet. Caring for yourself is extremely important during this time. Getting out pent up energy in a healthy way, such as boxing, yoga or running, will help you during your drug addiction recovery.
  5. Join a support group. Whether this is a group therapy offered at your local drug addiction recovery center, or a volunteer organization, joining a group will give you support from healthy adults.

Drug addiction treatment comes in many forms. Finding what works best for you will make your recovery a positive experience. While some people find group and family therapy cathartic, some people prefer individual counseling.
