We have found that the most important aspect of recovery is to have fun and enjoy yourself. Solitude and isolation can deprive a person of the joys of sobriety. For individuals in early recovery, it is important to have sober support in-place, such as following a twelve-step program, living in a transitional sober home structure and having the support of family/friends. There are many healthy outlets to enjoying a life in recovery.
The prospect of hangovers, drug overdoses, broken relationships with family, friends, loved ones, poor academics, lost scholarships or job opportunities, bad choices and decisions, poor memory, illness and injury–this is just the beginning of the consequences that result from drug/alcohol abuse. Usually nobody warns you about these repercussions the first time you reach for a joint, a bottle, syringe or pill. However, our goal at Life Change Recovery is to raise awareness about the dangers of substance abuse and provide a safe haven for addicts/alcoholics. The truth is that there are many other activities available to you that are safer and more productive and that can provide a life in sobriety beyond your wildest dreams.
