Getting Back on Track After Addiction
Substance abuse may have alienated you from your friends and family. Your grades may have slipped or your work performance may have deteriorated. You may have stopped showing interest in what you were once passionate about. You might stay up late each night partying, getting drunk or high. If you are concerned about your life and health, you may need to take steps to get back on track; the sooner the better.
It may not be easy. The longer you have been using an addictive substance, the longer and the more difficult the withdrawal and recovery process may be. With relapse being a real possibility, the process may not only entail committing to a rehabilitation program, but also maybe a lifetime of aftercare.
Your First Step
The decision to change your life can be the biggest step to take to in your journey to recovery. You may find yourself motivated by a number of things. Regardless of your motivators – family, career, an opportunity for a promising future - the most important thing may be that you are driven to seek treatment to improve the quality of your life and health. Having a strong desire to stay away from possible relapse triggers and to improve your life can be pivotal in recovery.
The Importance of Aftercare
Breaking a habit and making a change may not be easy. You may feel the risk for relapse imminently looming like dark shadow at all times. Strong will and determination can be important, but may not be enough to bring you a lifetime of sobriety. While motivation and strong will are necessary ingredients to staying firm in your commitment to live a “clean life,” it may be wise to combine these attributes with an aftercare plan. An effective aftercare plan will often times include ongoing professional therapy.
Re-building a Beautiful Life
With the guidance of a qualified therapist, you can closely examine the people around you. Painful as it may be, you may have to put some distance between you and those people who are supporting your substance use. You will still need support, though support may be more beneficial coming from positive individuals who are willing to journey with you down the difficult path of recovery. This may even mean going through counseling themselves so they can increase their own understanding of addiction and how to be supportive rather than enabling and/or co-dependent.
Working Your Own Unique Recovery
Recovery can be a long-term process. In order to stay away from the possibility of going back to substance abuse, you may need to learn new ways of living. Initially, you may need to go through a detox program and/or an inpatient rehabilitation program. After completing such programs engaging in aftercare may be the key to achieving and maintaining your own, unique recovery.
