Once you have completed treatment at Seacliff Recovery Center, it can take time to settle into your new lifestyle and routines. Early recovery is a time when the risk for relapse is high and it’s essential to continue implementing the strategies learned in treatment. With the right approach and support, you can rediscover the joys of life beyond addiction and keep yourself moving in the right direction.
Take recovery one day at a time and focus on living in the present. Remember that it takes time to adjust. Deal with each challenge and success as it arises and stick with the routines that you have established.
Tweak your routines as necessary to find what works best for you and your situation. Recovery is a personal journey, and what works well for someone else may not be the right strategy for you. Reflect on each day and decide what you should continue doing and what may need to be changed.
Work with your family to create a safe, supportive environment that is conducive to recovery. Be open and honest about your needs and how others can help. Remember that they too are going through changes, so everyone must work together to achieve balance and enhance communication.
Stay active in support groups and counseling so that you can connect with others who are going through similar challenges. Learn from one another and feed off of the positive energy and encouragement. If you’re facing challenging situations, talk through them with your therapist or sponsor. Long-term recovery is possible.
Seacliff Recovery Center provides individualized treatment to meet each client’s unique needs and support a positive recovery experience.
