How To Get Back On Your Feet When Treatment Is Over
Believe it or not, some people are lost when they leave a treatment facility. A sober living, transitioning community could be the answer for you. With the rise of Facebook and social soapboxes, it can be scary for addicts to transition back to a civilian life without drugs. Especially when so many people consistently downgrade and essentially bully people who have addiction problems on social media. There are people out there, just like you, who want to be a part of the solution. Every new beginning is a new chance for happiness.
Surround Yourself With People Who Encourage You
The world is full of critics, and that means triggers you have to overcome. If you addiction partly stems from criticism and bullying, a transitioning community can be the hope you have so badly needed to be the best you. The sober you might just need the day to day positive vibes, encouraging words, and honesty from these truly awesome people. They live to inspire, because it helps them remember to take one day at a time and slay it sober.
Kindness Is So Gangsta
Find a place with a positive message. Transitioning communities can be full of people from every walk of life. They might be ex-gang members, PTA moms, or even Jenny from the block. They are real people who have lived extraordinary lives and taken control of their addiction. Some sober living communities base themselves in religion, some in positive affirmations and yoga, some just want to put a little good back in the world. That starts with you. Understanding that most of the people who run these facilities face the same challenges you do can also help you mentally brave the next chapter.
