Talk it Out

The benefits of good communication become lost when someone uses drugs and alcohol.  Emotions are high and difficult to handle. Expressing needs and wants create more chaos than clarity.  A person suffering from substance abuse disorder can find the help needed to recover by connecting with a treatment facility or program.  In doing so, the individual can begin the recovery process and learn how to overcome the hurdles of addiction. Working through the laborious tasks to shift into a new life can begin with talking it out.  Discussing addiction, treatment, and past issues will support recovery by letting go of previous hardship.

Therapy Talk

During treatment, an individual can begin Cognitive Behavioral Therapy(CBT).  CBT provides one on one counseling where the person in recovery works through personal situations with a professional therapist.  The therapist can give guidance for the individual to follow and to create a new outlook on the situation. The initial connection with talk therapy allows the person to open up without judgment.  As treatment continues, the individual can find their voice. Verbally expressing concerns and emotions is the beginning steps to finding strength in recovery.

Broken Relationships

Addiction pulls people away from each other.  Everyone around the person with addiction faces the trials of trying to help or decide to walk away from the relationship.  The individual sometimes allows the addiction to have complete control and ends up isolated from the world around them. For the person in recovery to begin mending the relationships CBT, group therapy, and family therapy need to be incorporated into the treatment plan.  Rebuilding and creating new connections can improve the individual’s chances for success in recovery.

New Skills

Communication, coping, and life skills learned during treatment and therapy will aid the person with substance abuse disorder.  Building a new and sober lifestyle gives the individual strength in recovery by constructing a positive foundation. The right tools will enable the person in recovery to sustain abstinence.  Continued CBT and group therapy help fight the lifelong disease. More communication practices give the individual new ways of connecting with others. Coping skills can turn into talents and possibly another form of communication.  Writing letters to loved ones or writing personal stories is a form of expression which can be used to counteract negative past experiences.

Fighting addiction can silence you.  Losing connections with loved ones will bring on an emotional rollercoaster.  Don’t be the one isolated from the world. Contact Resilient House today and begin the change!  Talk through your journey and be heard! 833-change1 (833-242-6431)
