Living Life After the Recovery Process
Life after the recovery process will be an adjustment period for the person in recovery and the people in the person’s life. After finishing a recovery program, therapy sessions and support group meetings should be a priority, and excess time should be spent learning a new skill or finding new social activities. Exposure to potential triggers should be limited, and negative influences should be completely removed. In everyday life, create attainable goals to work toward and focus on proper self-care, and personally work on rebuilding damaged relationships. When adjusting after the recovery process, take the time needed to readapt and ask for help when needed.
