Rehab 4 Addiction

No matter what alcohol or drug rehabilitation programme that people from Henley choose it is important that it offers the tools to meet the challenges that are sure to lie ahead. Stopping drinking and drug-using is relatively easy, but it is staying sober that is the real problem.

Those individuals who are not prepared for the sober life are likely to suffer as a result and use this as an excuse to relapse. It does not really matter which particular path that people in Henley take to end their addiction so long as it provides them with the tools they need.

Meeting the Challenges of Recovery

In order to meet the challenges of recovery, it is vital that people in Henley have the right tools for the job. The type of strategies needed can differ from person to person, but some of the most important tools needed will include:

  • The ability to deal with stress effectively: It may not be possible to avoid the stresses of life, but it is possible to learn how to manage it better
  • A good strategy for dealing with all the relapse triggers that the person is likely to face in early recovery: This will include the big four that are remembered with the acronym HALT – hunger, anger, loneliness, and tiredness
  • A strategy for developing a new sober network of friends: This is important because the individual will usually have to break away from their old social networks in order to become sober

It is vital that those people in Henley who are serious about breaking away from addiction are prepared to meet the challenges that are going to lie ahead.
