Tips for Long-term Sobriety - Banyan Boca

Tips for long-term Sobriety

Getting sober is only half the battle when it comes to overcoming alcoholism or addiction. For many people in recovery, maintaining sobriety can be just as tough as achieving it.

This is because addiction isn’t just about the drugs or alcohol you have been abusing. It is about using a substance to distract from, to dull, or to cope with life’s struggles. The problem is turning to substances as a coping mechanism, tool, or source of emotion. At Banyan Detox Boca Raton, we know that drugs and alcohol won’t fix anything. We also know that maintaining sobriety can be tough, because challenges and triggers will always be there. But, if you’re willing to put in the work at maintaining sobriety, you can stay sober for the long haul. Here are some of our tips for long-term sobriety.

Build a Support System

Support is crucial in maintaining your sobriety. Our drug and alcohol detox center in Boca offers support for your prolonged sobriety, including IOP and alumni programs. Make sure you have a support system of trusted friends and family who can help you stay sober.

Avoid Risky Situations

If you fear that you may drink when around alcohol, avoid situations where alcohol may be present. You may not be ready to fully dive back into everyday activities right away, it’s okay to avoid situations which can be dangerous for your sobriety. If you do wind up in a situation that could jeopardize your sobriety, make sure to lean on your sobriety support system.

Know the Signs of Relapse

A relapse doesn’t happen all at once. It starts slowly. Often, it begins with looking back at the times you were using and only focusing on the good memories, not the bad. If you are having cravings or if you feel that a relapse is possible, reach out for help.
