There are many steps and substance abuse treatment options for people suffering from addiction these days. The first step is for a person who is addicted to a substance to acknowledge that there are substance dependency and addiction problems. The next actionable step is to get help. Typically, treatment options for addictions include a combination of inpatient and outpatient programs, counseling (psychotherapy), self-help groups paired with individual sponsors, and sometimes medication. Recovery is much more than stopping drug and alcohol abuse; it is about implementing lifestyle changes in addiction recovery. Trying to maintain abstinence from addictive substances or behaviors while keeping up your old lifestyle will not work. Successful addiction recovery requires a lifestyle overhaul. To stay sober after drug or alcohol rehab, you will have to learn how to rebuild your lifestyle around recovery, and not fit recovery into your lifestyle.

 

Sunshine Recovery Center is the place to come for substance abuse treatment in West Palm Beach if you want to learn how to get sober and maintain a life free from your addictions. In recovery, every day that you remain sober is something to feel good about, and that feeling of success is part of what enables us to set the next goal. At Sunshine Recovery, you learn to put several basic goals into practice: 

 

·       Eating well, fueling your body and mind: One of the first and best lifestyle changes you can make to support your recovery is to adopt a healthy diet. The benefits are not only physical, but mental and emotional as well, and therefore reduce your risk for relapse and help you to stay sober.  

 

·       Exercising regularly: Integrating exercise into your daily routine of recovery is a sure-fire way to boost your ability to stay sober in the long run. Exercise does not only improve your physical health; even mild exercise can also boost the feel-good chemicals in your brain, helping you reduce stress and improve your mood.  

 

·       New and healthy relationships: One of the hardest things for many people in early recovery is accepting the fact that being around people who drink or use substances is no longer appropriate — and often this means letting go of all of your former friends and lifestyle choices. Forming a new group of sober friends is imperative — and recovery meetings are a great place to meet new people who you can be sure will be supportive of your new lifestyle. Loneliness is a relapse trigger and could be a serious pitfall for addicts. 

 

·       Seek out positive hobbies: To positively change your lifestyle, you will likely have to acquire new hobbies to replace all the time and money you previously spent fueling your drug addiction.  

 

Successful addiction recovery requires other actionable steps and lifestyle changes such as honesty, taking control of your finances, practicing gratitude, and being of service. If you are to be truly successful in recovery and want to stay sober, you must commit to sober living, which means committing to improving your overall lifestyle. Take it one day at a time and ask yourself one question before bedtime each day — “Did I care for myself today?” If not, take a look at the areas in your life which you can focus on improving to make staying sober that much easier. 

 

At Sunshine Recovery Center, we know from firsthand experience that admitting you have an addiction to any kind of substance requires a certain state of mind, and it is one of the most important lifestyle changes in recovery. Getting substance abuse treatment will provide you with a sense of empowerment. Under the direct care and guidance from the support team of certified and trained counselors and addiction specialists at Sunshine Recovery Center, you will realize that we do get chances to make new choices in life!
