Enduring in the Recovery Process
Recovery is such a process. The alcoholic/drug addict must develop a whole new way of living and come up with new coping mechanisms. The old coping mechanisms always resorted to using or the bottle. A part of this process relies heavily upon the help and support of others and learning new skills and ways to cope. This begins in alcohol or drug rehab for many, and then extends after rehab with the support of additional counseling and a support group. The joys of recovery help in providing a foundation for continuing forward.
Residents of Cirque Lodge are provided things to help them with the recovery process. Central to all of this is the Continuing Care Plan. Prior to leaving the facility, residents work with aftercare in developing a plan for their recovery process. Within this plan are additional forms of care, support and help. These are measures to maintain sober living and relapse prevention. There is always help available. This help can be a needed support in those times when recovery is a struggle. The advantage to this help is that most have been through this process and can relate and empathize.
Drug rehab is only the beginning to developing the skills needed for recovery. Many of these lessons are learned and developed by enduring the entire process. What the alcoholic/addict must always realize is that there is help and support available. These things can be a vital influence against relapse.
