Congratulations on overcoming your substance abuse! Despite whatever trials and tribulations that were in your way, you’ve managed to surmount those obstacles and set your self on the path of recovery. However, the battle is far from over on your road to redemption. In order to maintain your sobriety throughout your new journey, you’re gonna want to have these key factors in your life:

Have A Solid Support Group

Whether it’s your friends, significant other, or family, surround yourself with people who encourage your sobriety. These should be people that are proud of your growth and only want what’s best for you. By having a variety of people who support your sobriety, you’ll realize that your not alone whenever you’re battling your urges. These people should be nonjudgmental of your past while also encouraging about your future, meaning that you should surround yourself with a support group that will always tell you the truth.

Take Pride In Your Sobriety

Become proud about your journey towards sobriety. Accept all your flaws and strengths while continuing to improve yourself each and every day. The sheer willpower to resist the temptations of drugs and alcohol doesn’t exist in everyone. Your ability to acknowledge that you had a problem and seek help for the betterment of yourself and loved ones is nothing short of inspirational. Statistics show that, in 2013, at least 24.6 million Americans participated in illicit drug use that year. You’ve managed to defy that stat and should be proud of that feat.

Engage In Healthy Hobbies

Now that you’ve gotten more free time after purging substance abuse from your daily routine, you’re free to engage in any number of hobbies. Maybe you’ve always wanted to start your own YouTube channel or learn a martial art? The options are literally limitless and, as long as they’re not destructive, there’s nothing wrong with pouring your time and energy into something new. By finding a new interest, you’ll realize how much fun your sobriety can bring you when you have a clear mind.

Recovering at Your Own Pace

Recover at your own speed and don’t become extremely anxious over your progress. If you’re truly anxious about maintaining your sobriety, halfway houses are a great option. Halfway homes are community-driven living spaces that are designed to help you transition into sober living. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and there’s no shame in taking your time on your road to recovery. A halfway house may be the perfect solution if you’re ready to test your sobriety in a controlled environment.

Never Give Up

Your fight to maintain your sobriety is a neverending one. There will always be constant temptations that will attempt to lead you off your path to recovery. Remain vigilant at all times and remember that you don’t just remain sober for the sake of yourself, but also for your loved ones.

  • I have remained sober and it is because of DP. DP is the best place there is, hands down. I keep everyone there in my prayers, and I encourage everyone there to take what they are practicing and do it in their lives, after.

  • Over the past year, I’ve been putting into actin what Discovery Place taught me, and I have experienced a complete perspective change of the world, and the people in it. I get to be a man of service and love today, and for that I am grateful to Discovery Place.

  • Discovery Place means the world to me. They showed me the tools that I’ve tried to use everyday in my life to think less often of myself, and more frequently of others. I am learning to lend a hand when I am able and to have a honest and humble relationship with God and the people around me. Not only am I clean and sober, but also I am happy and fulfilled.

  • When I got to Discovery Place my whole life was in shambles, but I didn’t know it. I spent 6 months in their programs, participating in all three phases, and was met with kindness and love all along the way. It is unbelievable to me, where I am now relative to where I was when I arrived at DP.

    Lance Duke
  • I can never say enough good things about Discovery Place and the people who work there. Before checking in to DP, I was out of options and out of answers. Fortunately, Discovery Place has a solution. Taking suggestions from the staff at DP saved my life, and as a result, I’m now more content and hopeful about life. I’m grateful for Discovery Place showing me how to live a healthy life so that I can become a better man and help the next guy.”
