How to Get the Most Out of Addiction Treatment

Once the person becomes ready to end their addiction problems it is a cause for relief and optimism. It is important to keep in mind, though, that this willingness to get help might not guarantee their success. This is because it will always be up to the individual to make the most out of the help that is available. They have to be proactive and be willing to take charge of their own recovery. Here are a few suggestions for how people can do this:

  • · It is important to understand that you will not benefit from addiction treatment by osmosis. What this means is that you will have to work to get the most out of these resources. For example, if you go into rehab and do not make any effort you are unlikely to get the most out of the experience.
  • · This might sound a bit insulting but many of our beliefs that we hold onto in the midst of our addiction are just plain wrong. This is not to say that you are gullible or lacking in intelligence – it is just the nature of addiction. If your beliefs actually reflected reality, you would not be able to maintain the substance abuse. It is therefore vital that you do not allow your old beliefs to get in the way of recovery. You need to approach sobriety with a completely open mind and be prepared to let go of those beliefs that are holding you back. In Alcoholics Anonymous, they will jokingly admit that their best ideas led to them becoming trapped in addiction.
  • · It is common for people to feel resistant to treatment options such as rehab. The reality is though, that it can often be the options that we least want to do that turn out to be the most beneficial. Rehab will provide you with a solid foundation for your recovery, and it will provide you with the tools you need to begin rebuilding your life. This is something that you will want to at least give serious consideration to – do not just dismiss it out of hand.
  • · You need to be willing to make your addiction recovery the most important thing in your life. This probably sounds like too much to ask. What about your family and your career? The reality is that if you are unable to stay sober you are likely to lose those things anyway. Making sobriety your number one priority does not mean that you do not care about anything else – it just means that you do not allow anything to get in the way of your recovery. For example, if your family is having a celebration and you feel sure that you will relapse if you go your commitment to sobriety means that you do not go.
