After Detox

If you are new to the whole idea of sobriety, you may have a lot of questions about what happens next, regardless where you are at in recovery. Checking into detox is a big decision, and one that can be life-changing. You will want to do everything possible to set yourself up for success when you discharge. This will involve a little planning. If you have someone you trust on the outside, it may be helpful to include them in your plan, not only for support, but to help you through the process. Preparation is key, and the addiction specialists at the Serenity Recovery Centers will advise and help you through the whole process.

Checking into a treatment center after leaving detox is a common and wise choice for many individuals who want long-term sobriety, and need full immersion into the recovery and treatment setting. The knowledge and tools learned in treatment are priceless; coupled with the extended time frame that allows an individual to heal rather than immediately going back to their old stomping grounds, puts the treatment option at the front of the pack. If you can go to treatment, do it.

Sober living is another option people choose after getting sober. However, some sober living homes require a longer length of sobriety than what a person would have after leaving straight detox. Moving into this type of situation is often thought of as a stepping stone from the sequence of: detox, inpatient, and residential treatment settings. If you decide to go to treatment, definitely consider moving into one after you leave treatment. The longer you can stay in a sober environment with other sober people, the better chance you have at long-term recovery. It may sound overwhelming now, but most people who decide to go, find that it was the best decision they made toward their sober insurance policy. Plus, you may meet lifelong friends that you never would have before.

Of course, some people just go to 12 Step meetings and/or therapy. It is possible to stay sober with this route, but going to detox, treatment, and sober living has been the most successful for individuals who have time in recovery. 12 Step meetings, and therapy if you so choose, are highly recommended to supplement your recovery after you have completed the treatment sequence. The more you can do for yourself, the better. Take recovery seriously, and you will be on the right path.
