The day is finally here. The sun is shining outside as you gather your things and sign out at the front registry. You completed your intensive residential treatment program here at The Last Resort and you’re ready to walk out into the world a new man and begin your life after alcohol rehab.
Beginning Life After Alcohol Rehab
It’s been a rough ride, weathering the pain of detox and withdrawal, coming to terms with your own addictive traits and the reasons behind your spiral into addiction, and even the social ramifications of facing the people in your life that you hurt along the way. But you’re ready for it.
It’s surreal when addiction rehabilitation ends and you’re thrust back into the world with a different mindset. How will life be different? What will you do to stay sober?
These are important questions that will no doubt cycle through your mind as you leave The Last Resort and return to the real world. However, our job while you’re here is to equip you with the tools and mindset to adjust to the outside world upon your return. This means understanding how to rearrange your circumstances to avoid tempting relapse triggers and the strength to take better care of your health along the way.
Your Second Chance
Life after rehab is about living in your second chance. You have achieved sobriety, like going off on a quest to recover the magic stone, and now your quest is to keep it safe. The world will come at you like an army of demons to try and steal your sobriety away. Temptations will be everywhere. Your job is to avoid situations where the temptations will be present. You can’t spend time with the same people as before, the ones who will beckon you back into the drugs and drinking lifestyle.
It can be difficult to adjust to life after alcohol rehab, like a stranger in a strange land. But you have achieved something really powerful for yourself and that alone will be strong enough to carry you through. The confidence and self-esteem built up in the achievement of sobriety is noble and commendable. Be proud.
Appreciate and savor this new lease on life and take every day as a new gift. Care for your body with a healthy diet and exercise routine. Cherish the quality times with your family and loved ones. Tell yourself every day that you are strong and committed enough to avoid slipping back into the pit.
If the outside world gets to be too much, remember that you have a support network on call and you should use it. Attend the meetings and stay in contact with your sponsor. Getting that feedback is paramount to keeping yourself grounded and sane.
Above all, be proud of yourself and greet each new day with gratitude.
