A new year offers us a clean slate upon which to write the next chapter of our lives. This is a fantastic opportunity to make a change in your life and seek help for your substance abuse disorder. The greatest gift you can give yourself and your loved ones this holiday is your recovery from addiction, and there is never a better time than the present to make an attempt at sobriety!
While the holidays are meant to be a time of joy and relaxation, for many addicts they bring about feelings of anxiety and depression as their frayed relationships with family and friends are underscored by the celebratory events of the season. Our instinctive response to these feelings is to use our substance of choice in order to numb the pain and discomfort. This means those in active addiction around the holidays are particularly susceptible to an accelerated advance of their disease’s progression as well as a heightened risk of overdose. Rather than continue suffering at the hands of your addiction as you attempt to cope with the emotions brought on by the holiday, take this opportunity to try a different approach and make an effort at sobriety.
Getting sober at the start of a new year is a great way to set yourself up for success and growth in the coming year. In our active addiction we avoid any sort of uncomfortablity or change, both of which are requirements for personal growth. As a result our progress and success in life is impeded, and we usually find ourselves regressing in our personal and professional lives. Starting the new year off with sobriety could be a catalyst for a great deal of personal and professional growth in your life, allowing you to achieve your goals and dreams which have been set aside for the sake of your substance abuse.
As the earth completes another rotation around the sun and returns to its starting point, so too are we blessed with a fresh start in the form of a new year. This is a perfect opportunity for you to invest in yourself and your future by seeking treatment for your substance abuse disorder. Give yourself and your loved ones the gift of your return to the happy, loving, sane person they know you are. At Evolutions, our Admissions Counselors are standing by round the clock through the holidays to help you through the admittance process.
