No matter what has taken place in the past, a new year brings a fresh start and a life-changing opportunity for addicts to truly turn their lives around on every level.
Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) December 30, 2014
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 encouraging addicts in a new blog post to ring in the new year by saying goodbye to drugs and alcohol.
“No matter what has taken place in the past, a new year brings a fresh start and a life-changing opportunity for addicts to truly turn their lives around on every level,” commented A Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “And most importantly, this is far more than just a New Year’s Resolution. Addicts need to compliment their commitment with a solid and structured treatment plan that will help them every step of the way, so that 2015 turns into a year that they celebrate – because it’s the year they reclaimed their life, and their life’s purpose.”
According to the A Forever Recovery blog post, addicts who want to ring in the new year by saying goodbye to drugs and alcohol should keep the following key facts in mind:
- Impatient treatment at an accredited and licensed residential facility could be both vital and necessary to achieve lasting sobriety.
- Participation in groups and interaction with other addicts who are on the road to recovery can be extremely helpful; especially in the first few days and weeks of recovery.
- It’s essential to develop healthy coping skills in order to deal with life’s inevitable challenges; otherwise, it’s often only a matter of time before a relapse occurs as drugs and alcohol re-enter the picture.
- Sobriety isn’t just about one aspect of life: for most addicts, it represents an entire lifestyle change.
“As we’ve blogged about recently, the holiday season can be particularly difficult for addicts,” added Per Wickstrom. “However, this is their chance to make the new year something special, and to resolve to get their help they need to become sober. While they must commit to being part of the solution, they must also realize that addiction is a disease, and as such they can’t and shouldn’t try and treat it on their own.”
