MAINTING SOBRIETY AFTER TREATMENT
What I have come to realize is that it doesn’t matter if a person is in active addiction or they have eight years of sobriety under their belt, sometimes we all just need a little help.
So while I know I have some difficult times ahead and that these next few weeks are going to be tough, I am grateful that on top of everything else I don’t have to worry about my drinking problem anymore.
Yes, it is possible to maintain your recovery, even if things around you are uncertain and upsetting. It mostly takes making the decision to start things moving in a more positive direction. If there’s any influence that’s likely to cause a person in recovery to relapse, it’s stress.
So your friend or loved one has completed rehab. Now what? You might be surprised at the many ways you can help. In fact, MORE than just help. You might be the deciding factor in whether they succeed in sobriety or not!
