How to Get the Most Out of Addiction Recovery

Just because the individual decides to quit their addiction does not always mean that their success is guaranteed. Motivation is the key here, but in order to make it work the person will need to harness this motivation in the right way. This means that they will have to take action and keep taking action. Here are some of the things that the individual needs to do in order to get the most out of addiction treatment:

  • · It is important that the individual approach recovery with a beginner’s mind. They need to understand that the best of their thinking this far has led them into addiction, so they will need to be prepared to let go of old beliefs and opinions because these have proved ineffective. If the individual insists on holding on to their old way of doing things they may get sober, but they are unlikely to find happiness. It will usually mean that they become a dry drunk – somebody who is physically sober but acts in many ways as if they were still in the midst of addiction. It is vital that you come with an open mind if you want to get the most out of addiction treatment.
  • · It is common for people who are caught up in addiction to be demand-resistant. This means that it is their automatic reaction just to reject things out of hand without giving them a fair try. The individual can carry this demand resistance with them into recovery, and this means that they will end up refusing things that could have really benefited them. In fact, it is often those things that people can feel most resistant to initially that ends up benefiting them the most. It is advisable that people try to develop more of a “give it a try” attitude to any suggestion made in treatment.
  • · The individual needs to understand that they are responsible for their own recovery. There are plenty of people who will be there to help them, but ultimately it is always going to be up to them. This means that they have to be proactive and not just wait around for somebody else to fix them or take responsibility for their life. Many people caught in addiction develop a state of mind known as “learned helplessness,” and this can be a real drawback when it comes to addiction recovery.
  • · The person needs to take their recovery seriously but not take himself or herself too seriously. This means that they should not treat recovery like some type of endurance race or prison sentence. Recovery is meant to be fun, and it is often the case that people will avoid fun in recovery because they want an excuse so that they can later relapse.
