5 Things You Can Do to Increase Your Odds of Recovery

Know what you can do to help you throughout the recovery process.

Know what you can do to help you throughout the recovery process.

So you’ve completed drug rehab or you are thinking about entering drug rehab—now what? Do you know what it’s going to take to assure you successfully recover from addiction? Are you ready to take a stance and make sure that you make a full recovery no matter what it takes? If you’ve struggled with addiction long enough and you feel like it’s time to get better, consider these 5 things that you can do to boost your chances of making a full recovery from addiction and living a life of long term sobriety.

  1. No matter what you do, don’t use drugs or alcohol! A little bit is too much and there’s never just one drink or just one hit. Using drugs or alcohol will hinder your chances of recovery and can throw you right back into a downward spiral. Even if you are recovering from a drug addiction, don’t drink because drinking can impair your judgment and may result in you using drugs.
  2. Consider rehab centers that offer aftercare and support services. The types of services that you seek after you have completed drug rehab will play a key role in your recovery. Look for a drug rehab center that will provide you with ample aftercare services and utilize the services that are provided to you to the best of your ability to improve your chances of a successful recovery.
  3. Take part in support groups and get involved. There are various types of recovery support groups such as alcoholics anonymous, narcotics anonymous, and various other anonymous groups that can help you to remain on track even after you leave inpatient treatment. Make it your top priority to attend meetings and to get a sponsor who can help to support you and your recovery efforts. Additionally, you should consider involving your friends and family members in your recovery because this can greatly impact your chances of maintaining sobriety.
  4. Seek a supportive recovery environment. If you live with friends or other family members who are not supportive of your decision to become and remain sober, consider other living options. It’s important that you live somewhere that will foster your recovery efforts and help you to remain sober. If you aren’t sure or if you feel that your recovery will not be fostered at home, consider a sober living home as your next stop along the treatment and recovery road.
  5. Finally, another step you can take to increase your recovery odds is to become an advocate of your own recovery. Learn everything you can about your addiction and your recovery and take full responsibility for it. Take a stance, learn what you can and become an advocate for the one person who can guarantee that you make a full recovery from addiction – YOU!
