The first step to recovery is to complete a treatment program to take you on the next part of your journey. Getting there can feel challenging but once you get there and complete it, aftercare is the next major step. Follow these strategies to help you transition into recovery with an aftercare life map.
4 Steps to Following Your Aftercare Plan
A support network will help you from aftercare throughout recovery. Support comes from all over including recovery group meetings, therapy meetings, running groups and hobby clubs. Finding people who share your interests will help encourage you to stay on track.
Getting plenty of healthy food and exercise is essential to living well in recovery. The body needs to recover from addiction but it also needs to learn how to reduce stress which can lead to relapse. Improved physical fitness can also improve mental and emotional stability.
Maintaining sobriety is about seeking help when needed. If a provider offers additional services, it is best to consider what will support your recovery. If you participate in recovery support sessions it can help you with progress towards your aftercare plan, develop coping strategies, and build a healthy long-term recovery.
Having hope for the future is a big part of recovery. When you have a sense of purpose, this can help when you are struggling with the change that comes in recovery. Building self autonomy will be a key to developing positive life goals that propel you forward. Let people surround you that help advance your career, support volunteering or creating a lifestyle that is consistent with your life goals. Defining and implementing your aftercare plans and goals will set you on a path to success.
