Once individuals get through the initial detox from drugs or alcohol, they will continue through rehabilitation. This is where patients get to the core reasons behind their addictions, addressing those issues so they can effectively move on with their lives without going back to drugs, alcohol, or their addictive behavior. Treatment for opioid dependence is best considered a long-term process. It involves changes in drug use and lifestyle, which includes adapting to new coping skills.
Below are some of the common areas of change to think about when developing your specific recovery.
Recovery Plans Should Also Include
Good nutrition, exercise, sleep and relaxation.
Learning to cope with feelings, problems, stress-ors and negative thoughts without relying on opioid.
Develop relationships with sober people and resist pressures from others to misuse substances.
Examine the impact opioid dependence has had on your family. Encouraging them to get involved in your treatment and mend relationships with your family members.
Learning to listen to your inner voice for support and strength, and using that voice to guide you in developing a renewed sense of purpose and meaning.
