Staying Sober After Rehab

The Transition Between Rehabilitation And General Life


You might want to celebrate once you achieve sobriety but don't think the job is done, because staying sober is just as difficult as, perhaps even more than, achieving sobriety. Creation of novel leisure activities and establishment of targets help maintain abstinence.

A rehab is an environment of supported living and one that looks forward to promoting comfort and safety to ease the struggles of an individual who could be struggling with an addiction to stay sober.

Rehab can provide a great foundation for security along with the tools that are required to heal and cope even after the individual has left the facility.


Getting back to normal life sometimes becomes challenging after a person leaves the rehab clean.


It is possible for you to attain prevention and coping with the initiators by getting to know them well. Abstinence maintenance is made less difficult by this fact.


Handling The Desires To Use When Out Of Rehab

Transitioning from rehab back to normal daily life can be challenging.

Time and again you may encounter situations where your commitment to sobriety is being tested.

Enticement may arise from some feelings you may have on getting back to your formal routines and meeting loved ones.


In order to prevent and deal with promoters of relapse after rehabilitation, the following can be done:

  • Establish A Support System
  • Find yourself among positive friends and loved ones who genuinely care for your welfare.
  • Whenever you are faced with enticement, you should look for a person or meeting around you that is accessible.

  • Ensure your house is free of any traces of drugs before you move into it after completing rehab.
  • You can also keep off environments where there drugs are being sold.

  • It makes sticking to abstinence simpler if there is a deep understanding of the advantages and good effects of being abstinent.
  • Religiously Attend Post-Rehab Treatment Schedules
  • Make sure that you continue going for counselling even after you have left the rehab.
  • It is always challenging to keep going for these appointments but they are very important.
  • Appreciation at every time.
  • Recognition of good things we have going for us is more possible when we have a grateful heart.
  • Five circumstances that bring joy and satisfaction should be documented every passing day.
  • Create Fresh Healthy Habits, Replace The Old Ones
