What is it like to be sober after rehab? It’s hard for people living in active addiction to see what life can be like outside of the never-ending quest for narcotics. Addiction is all-encompassing and impacts so many areas of people’s lives. Life after rehab is easier with the right support network. Having a support network of people who understand the struggles of a newly sober person can make all the difference. Contact Solution Based Treatment & Detox at 833.999.1941 to learn more.
Staying Sober Means Being Accountable
Making the decision to seek help for addiction is the right one, but ask yourself what you want from being sober after rehab. At the beginning of your recovery, it’s best to avoid events and people that will make you feel tempted to drink or take drugs. Your sponsor and therapist will have more insight into approaching events in sobriety and what your timeline for attending these events might look like. Regardless of how long you’ve been sober, being around people who are drinking and using drugs can make it extremely difficult to avoid relapse.
Unfortunately, many cultural, religious, social, and interpersonal events–things that keep us connected to our friends, family, and history–involve the use of alcohol and drugs. Some tips for staying include the following:
- Being honest about your recovery
- Choosing the right people to spend time with
- Rebuilding your personality
- Developing confidence to make your own decisions
- 12-Step meetings
Sober living can open doors for you by providing you with numerous opportunities and resources that simply are not available to you when you are living in active addiction. When you have an addiction, you may be unable to make wise decisions and control your emotions. That’s common, but when you step out of addiction’s shadow into sober living, you develop an opportunity to achieve almost anything you desire.
Preparing You to Deal with Life
To remain sober after rehab, you have to have strategies and tools to help you to deal with the complications life puts in your path. This may include things like exposure to drugs and unresolved trauma. You need to stay on the path to sobriety by confronting these problems in a mindful, supportive environment.
