Making a significant change in your life is always scary, and getting sober is no different. There can be all kinds of roadblocks between you and your recovery, and they may come from directions you don’t expect. Sometimes, your own attitude about your substance use is the main obstacle in your recovery and lasting sobriety. An entire psychic change can help you become more motivated to help yourself and to put the work into your treatment program. The best way to work toward an entire psychic change is to find treatment that addresses your substance abuse and mental health.

What is a Psychic Change?
Many people find themselves working toward sobriety in spurts, and sticking to it can be difficult at first. This is why psychic changes can be so crucial to the recovery process. They can be very different from person to person, but it involves the reworking of your outlook on life. This overhaul of your priorities, worldview, and self-image will help you see what truly matters, and how to work through recovery with the discipline necessary to succeed.
Many people achieve a psychic change through spiritual work. This is obviously very personal and can adhere to your own religion or belief system. For others, it may have more to do with your own inner peace. Meditation, spiritual work, and introspection are all excellent ways to begin work toward a psychic change. When you work on yourself and your outlook on the world and your life, you’re more likely to get sober and stay that way.
Achieving a Psychic Change Through AA
Psychic changes can be valuable in recovery for anyone, but focusing on them really began with the Alcoholics Anonymous program. It’s a major aspect of the twelve steps that people going through alcoholics anonymous work through. A 12-step program like Alcoholics Anonymous can help at any stage of the recovery process, and a sponsor in that program can help you identify a psychic change. Signs that you’re experiencing a psychic change may include:
- Looking forward to recovery meetings
- Feeling more prepared to share personal feelings with others
- A new willingness to ask for help and accept the advice of others
- Forming new friendships or breaking off old ones that may be connected to your addiction
- Major positive changes in your overall behavior and a willingness to apologize for ways you’ve wronged others in the past
- A new attitude toward sobriety and a knowledge of how much better you can feel without substance abuse
