A real challenge after leaving a drug rehab program is maintaining long term sobriety. For every person in recovery, relapse present the biggest threat to staying sober. As a result, many people become consumed with the fear of resuming drug use. Unfortunately, focusing on a relapse instead of exploring all the ways to enjoy being in recovery often create a state of mind that is more conducive to resuming drug use than maintaining sobriety. Experts warn that the chances of experiencing a relapse is typically greatest during the first twelve months of abstinence. In alcohol addition to going through relapse prevention education and training, it may also be helpful to apply a few of the following tried and true suggestions for staying sober.
Recovering from drug addiction is a tremendous accomplishment. In addition to participating in a sober living transitional program, these tips can help you to make the transition from a rehabilitation facility feel less daunting as you prepare for re-engagement into everyday life. By establishing good habits after the rehab process, staying sober can, overtime, eventually become routine.
