Aftercare

Lionheart’s residential rehabilitation programs are a significant first step towards establishing sobriety, but what comes next? Many people in recovery fear leaving their residential program because they’re not sure they’ll be able to stay on the road to recovery when they’re no longer in a controlled and sober environment.

Luckily, Lionheart Recovery is here to support you every step of the way.

Relapse Prevention

While relapse is common for many individuals working towards sustained sobriety, Lionheart Recovery programs will equip you with all the tools necessary to avoid falling back into a life of use. Remember that sobriety is a lifelong journey, and relapses do happen. A relapse does not necessarily have to be a failure and is often the result of a temporary lapse in judgment. Many individuals who relapse are able to return to their recovery and begin a new chapter of sobriety.

LEARN YOUR TRIGGERS

Our recovery programs help individuals to know and understand their addiction on an intimate level. The unique therapy support, and innovative, holistic approaches help addicts to understand why they began using, what factors contributed to their sustained use, and what now motivates them to remain sober.

When working towards recovery, it is essential that you commit to your new, sober life. You’ll need to find new friends who support you and may need to cut ties with friends you used to use with. Many addicts find new, healthy ways to manage stress (such as exercise, or meditation) that they turn to instead of their previous drug of choice.

SEEK OUT SUPPORT

Ongoing support, like seeing a therapist or attending a support group, is often crucial to sustained sobriety. Attending meetings, like AA or NA, can be hugely beneficial in establishing sober relationships and connecting with people who know the signs and symptoms of relapse.

TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF

One of the best ways to stay sober is to be intentional about self-care. Eating a well-balanced diet, taking time to exercise each day, and staying involved in healthy, positive, hobbies can help relieve stress and decrease the likelihood of relapse.

Family Involvement

If there’s one thing we know about recovery, it’s that it can rarely be achieved alone. Familial support is incredibly important and can speed up the recovery process. Ongoing support from loved ones is crucial. It can help to provide motivation and connection, both of which are essential components of sustained sobriety.

HEALING FOR EVERYONE

Addicts need access to care and support while they heal, but family members also need help to recover from the impacts of having a loved one with dependency issues. Allowing family members to be a part of the recovery process helps them to understand better how addiction works and can help family supporters to be a meaningful part of the recovery and ongoing sobriety process. Children can also benefit from being part of the recovery process. As children learn more about addiction, they can be reassured that they aren’t to blame for the addiction that impacts the meaningful adults in their lives.

FRIENDS ARE FAMILY TOO

For many people, friends are just as close, if not closer and more valued relationships than even immediate family members. Friends should also be an active part of your recovery process. People often feel awkward after leaving rehab, even around friends that they care for very deeply. Remember to take things slow, and at your own pace. True friends will be ready to reconnect when you are.

BE SELECTIVE

It’s important that people in recovery have as much support from friends and family as possible. However, not everyone is going to be beneficial to the process and to an addict’s new commitment to sustained sobriety. Many people who struggle with dependency have experienced previous trauma, often times at the hands of family members and previous guardians or caregivers. It’s important to be mindful of these stress triggers and avoid them at all costs, particularly in the early stages of recovery.

Old friends can also be a hindrance to the process. It is not recommended that individuals in recovery hang out with friends they used to use with, or in places that they associate with use. Ending some of these long-standing relationships may be painful, but are often for the best. It can often be simply too easy to fall back into old habits and patterns when you stay connected to friends you used to use with.
