Reinventing Your Life after Addiction

Reinventing Your Life after AddictionAddiction can take a serious toll on your life and your happiness. Even if drug and alcohol use were a big part of your social circle, you can reinvent yourself to begin a happier life without drugs and alcohol.

Meeting New Friends and Exploring New Hobbies after Addiction

If your current social circle spends a great deal of time drinking, using substances or engaging in the activity you are addicted to—like online gaming, gambling and more—you may feel at a loss when it comes to quitting. An addiction takes over your life, and you may have neglected every other part of your life in order to maintain your addiction.

You will have a transitional period of time when you adjust to life without your addiction. But there is some good news: with the right support network, you will be able to try new things, meet new people and learn more about yourself. Many of the treatment programs we recommend offer time for enjoyment and introductions to new activities and people. You may be surprised to find how rewarding your life can be after your addiction.

Finding Treatment that Offers Supportive Aftercare and Outpatient Treatment

Obviously, you need a treatment program or rehab that works. Part of a program’s effectiveness is its ability to offer aftercare and outpatient treatment after inpatient rehab. While some treatment programs and hospitals may only provide a few days of care after detox, most patients return again and again because the treatment simply didn’t last long enough or go deep enough to treat the underlying problems associated with addiction.

Seek a program that offers aftercare. Ask about specific aftercare programs. Once you are away from your addiction, aftercare can help you meet new people, connect with new hobbies and interests, and learn to adjust to daily life without drugs, alcohol or addictive behavior. Recovery is challenging, but with the right team, it will not be so difficult.
