Armed with the right support and accurate information, former addicts can give themselves far more than a fighting chance to stay sober and, indeed, life a richer, fuller and more joyful life than they ever dreamed.

Best Drug Rehabilitation, which offers treatment programs and believes that having family close by during a stay in rehab can make a big difference in whether or not the process is successful, has published an essential new blog that sheds light on how to stay sober after rehab.
“Staying sober is a lifelong commitment, yet one that constantly delivers indescribably valuable rewards since, ironically, former addicts understand how nightmarish life can be better than most people, and therefore don’t take life’s simple pleasures for granted in the way that non-addicts tend to do,” commented Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “Armed with the right support and accurate information, former addicts can give themselves far more than a fighting chance to stay sober and, indeed, life a richer, fuller and more joyful life than they ever dreamed.”
According to the Best Drug Rehabilitation blog post, key ways that former addicts can stay sober include:
- Make a “life plan” that introduces them to new, healthy and supportive situations and people, and shifts them away from environments and enablers that were associated with their former life as an addict.
- Take advantage of therapy and counseling to replace old, destructive thought patterns and conditionings.
- Remember that each day they stay sober increases their likelihood of remaining sober.
- Consider inpatient care if the temptations of relapsing into old patterns are unbearable.
“Successfully completing a rehab program is a profound step, and one that definitely deserves to be celebrated,” added Per Wickstrom. “However, as someone who has personally battled with addiction in my youth, I know as well as anyone that rehab, while monumental, is only one of the steps. The journey doesn’t end there. Former addicts and their loved ones, friends and caregivers need to stay focused, get informed, and often most importantly, be open to seeking expert help when required.”
