Setting Sober Goals for Recovery
When people set goals, they can feel let down if they aren’t able to meet those goals exactly as imagined, or as quickly as they hoped. Making sure to set realistic and incremental goals can help you stay focused and see progress. Nobody automatically knows how they should go about recovery, so it’s important to consider more than one approach.
To set effective goals for yourself, it can help to get into the right mindset. Setting goals has to come from a place of real motivation and authentic desire to improve. When you set goals, take time to consider the following:
What things do you want to prioritize and spend more time doing?
An addiction eats up a lot of your time. When that addiction goes away, you need to figure out what to do with that gained time. Use it productively.
How can you frame your goals in a positive way?
Set goals that affirm and maintain your recovery.
Can you view yourself in a positive way?
Remember what things you have accomplished in the past, and look toward what you can do today.
Has your focus shifted toward the present and the future?
While it can be challenging coming to terms with a difficult past, working on recovery today can give you a future to look forward to.
Who can help you achieve your goals?
If there are people in your life who can help, talk to them about the potential they see in you.
Finding goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (S.M.A.R.T.) can give you a stronger sense of what kind of goals you can look towards. You may focus your goals on certain areas, such as personal relationship goals, career, lifestyle, personal or spiritual development, and financial goals.
At Solution Based Treatment & Detox, our team understands that setting goals can be a vulnerable and personally challenging process. Find out more about how our multidisciplinary team can help you set goals and create a sober future.
Sober Living Program at Solution Based Treatment
At SBT&D, we know that recovery from addiction requires a daily effort. For most, changing daily habits can be quite challenging. Therefore, you need a supportive environment where you won’t have to deal with as many triggers or temptations. As a result, you’ll have the time you need to build skills for daily sobriety outside of rehab.
