Whenever a patient is nearing the end of their treatment, they start to wonder how they will remain sober. It’s a great achievement when patients become clean and sober, but it is an entirely different achievement to maintain their sobriety. There are many ways patients can become confident that they can stay clean for a long time. Staying quit is an on-going process that a person will face each day going forward.
What to Do if You Slip
If you slip up and start using or drinking again, the first thing to do is to recognize the slip for what it was – a brief return to the old behavior. Slips aren’t exactly a sign of failure, but if you feel that your slip may turn into a relapse, get professional help as soon as possible to prevent it. If you slip, don’t ignore it. If you need advice from your support group, talk to them. If you need more help, please contact a rehabilitation facility. It’s important to know that you are not alone and that there is always someone to help.
Maintaining Sobriety and Staying Quit
It’s an incredible day when our patients graduate from their treatment program. It’s a day that all of the staff and other patients are excited for. More than getting our patients clean and sober, we want our patients to maintain their sobriety for a long time. We provide the skills and tools necessary for patients to feel confident by the time they’re ready to return home.
