5 Reasons to Travel in Recovery (and How to Be Safe)

Travel can be a great benefit to you following treatment, whether you have a few months or years of recovery under your belt, and want to take some time away. You don’t need to spend months away to travel, it can just be a weekend getaway. Find out why travel can be so beneficial to you in recovery while staying sober.

Ready, Set, Go

If you are ready to take the travel plunge, it may just change your perspective on life, how you see yourself, and how you experience relationships with people you care about. Ready, set go!

Transformed Perspective

Finding a new perspective can be quite refreshing. Even though recovery is, in itself, a new perspective, the point of view you gain from traveling can help you realize the world is bigger than the problems you currently face. There is hope beyond the horizon of addiction and traveling can help you see that more clearly.

New Discoveries

You will learn so much about how other people live, seek happiness, and even see how people experience greater challenges than you. Sometimes the lessons last longer than the trip you might take, which you can pack in your recovery bag to take on the journey.

Open Mind

A new, selfish life will do nothing to open your mind to new experiences. Medical staff can help you be healthier but traveling will build on this therapy. Travel forces you to become more open-minded about yourself and your daily experiences. This is true self-help at its best.

Passport to Life

Even if your passport gets stamps from all those places you visit, the good thing is the passport is not stamped as being in recovery from addiction. Nobody you meet will know your story unless you choose to share it, which can feel like a breath of fresh air.

Renewed Direction

After rehab, your personal direction may have felt unclear but travel will present a new pathway. Travel can become a new road to recovery in support of your journey of healing.

Even though a trip can end, the journey to recovery continues. The road is hard, full of ups and downs, but so is life. This is your road and you get to choose how you want it to look from here on out. Decide where you want to go, who you want to become, and how to get there. Maybe even take some travel companions on the journey with you for comfort and peace of mind.
