Once you have recognized the need to make some changes and that you need help to overcome an addiction, you may decide to attend a recovery center. It is very difficult to achieve sobriety without help and staying in a place devoted entirely to drug and alcohol recovery and rehab has proven to be far more successful in achieving the goal of long-term sobriety than going it alone.
A 60 day stay in recovery could be the ideal time span. Firstly, you will be evaluated and assessed, and a personalized treatment plan will be developed taking into consideration your physical, mental, emotional and if applicable spiritual health. As specialists, we recognize that addiction is usually a symptom of some underlying issues and as well as quitting using a substance or alcohol you will need to address these in order to stay clean and sober.
A 60-day treatment allows time to recover physically as well as work through the causes of your addiction and begin to build a new life without drugs or alcohol. A large part of long-term treatment will involve counseling and time will be given to look into living circumstances, medical issues and other social considerations. Sessions will take place learning to address these, setting you up properly for your new life.
Staying for 60 days means that the things learned in the first month can be practiced and you have time to adjust to a stable and sober routine in the nurturing environment of a recovery center. You have time to work on the underlying causes of substance misuse and time to heal. You can reinforce techniques of relapse prevention and plan for sober living exploring the possibility of new healthy hobbies and pastimes and develop a proper plan for follow up care including support group attendance and doctor appointments, should they be required.
The longer you stay in a sober environment, the better your perspective changes on addiction. Being away from distraction you get to focus on making behavioral changes and learning techniques to help thinking patterns. You can practice recovery skills, refusal skills and prepare for potential relapse situations. You can build up a support network and boost your chances of staying sober.
