The good news is that individuals who find a rehabilitation program that works for them dramatically increase their chances of getting sober and living a healthy, productive life.

A Forever Recovery, an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in, is focusing on the importance of a strong support system during recovery in its latest blog post.
“There are almost 23 million reported cases of drug or alcohol dependency in the US each year – and that doesn’t include the millions of cases that go unreported,” commented a Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “However, as daunting as these numbers are, the good news is that individuals who find a rehabilitation program that works for them dramatically increase their chances of getting sober and living a healthy, productive life.”
According to A Forever Recovery’s blog post, addicts need to take advantage of support systems both during and beyond the recovery:
- During Recovery: addicts who avail themselves of credible and certified impatient treatment programs will have access to ongoing support from medical professionals and addiction counselors. They’ll also draw support and strength from other addicts who are on the journey towards sobriety.
- After Recovery: addicts who successfully complete their inpatient treatment program should expect to be given a personalized after-care program, which includes access to community-based support systems.
“The possibility of relapse is something that former addicts will always have to be aware of,” added Per Wickstrom, who personally struggled with addiction in his youth. “However, this awareness does not need to be a fear or dread. Rather, it’s simply something that has to be managed and mitigated, and having the right support system will help achieve both of those critical goals.”

Cognitive approaches have excellent success, whereas others thrive within a more holistic approach. A Forever Recovery allows clients to choose from a wide range of recovery methodologies, coupled with Moral Recognition Therapy (MRT), to achieve success rates unmatched in the addiction treatment industry. The bottom line is that there is no single therapeutic approach to recovery that works for everyone… until now.
