Life after drug addiction rehab can take on many forms.
Everyone’s story and pathway to success is different. Some of us, the majority of us, actually, stumble at some time or another along the way. Your quality of life after drug addiction rehab is enhanced by the company in which you surround yourself.
It’s important to have a stable support system and people who are willing to call you out on your stuff (good or bad.) Accountability is something that you will start to see more of in recovery.
During active addiction, many of us did not hold ourselves accountable.
Some of us were able to hold it together long enough in an attempt to balance life and addiction, but, inevitably, this balancing act can’t go on forever. Life after drug addiction rehab will teach you a different kind of balance. This balance matches serenity with calamity, something mentioned in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.
When alcohol and drugs are removed from our lives, changes begin to occur.
It’s important to stay connected to other sober individuals when you begin your new life of sobriety. This is imperative because you can witness what it looks like to be newly sober, and then you can offer your experience, strength, and hope to a new person.
There are no winners or losers in sobriety, we are all trying to achieve the same thing, one day at a time. Life after drug addiction rehab will be a new experience because after years of addiction, we can forget what sobriety feels like. Great things can and will happen if you follow through with aftercare and continue to stay plugged into a positive fellowship.
