Overcoming Anxiety On the Road to Recovery
Posted By Schick Shadel || Apr 25, 2016
If you have just finished your detox or rehab and you have reached a period of sobriety, you should know that the road to maintain your recovery can be difficult. It is filled with obstacles you must face, such as anxiety. This usually occurs when you are put in positions that may jeopardize your ability to remain sober such as hanging out with friends at a club or attending a party.
It is important that you are able to overcome the challenges you face during recovery. Anxiety can be a trigger that forces people to go back to their addictions. At Schick Shadel, we are well aware of the issues you may face and we want to help you overcome them. At our detox center, we are able to focus on what triggers the addiction in the first place, so we know what can lead to anxiety.
To help overcome anxiety, consider the following:
- Inform others when you feel uncomfortable. The friends or family around you should be supportive enough to make sure you’re not in a situation that makes you anxious.
- Remember the reasons why you stopped the addiction in the first place. There is something that caused you to seek out help. Remembering the reason can prevent anxiety from bringing back the addiction.
- Take a step back. You have the power to control what happens in the future. If you feel pressure or anxiety, take a step back, recollect yourself, and move forward.
Your sobriety is extremely important and you should know how to protect it and your well-being. At the end of the day, the anxiety can be overbearing if you let it.
