HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OUT OF REHAB
- July 4, 2020
- Believe that it can be accomplished
If you hold the belief that attending addiction treatment is nothing but a killjoy, you may be in for an unexpected surprise! Not only is it possible to have fun while fighting your addiction, it may even be a necessary component! We as humans are wired to do things we find enjoyable. Therefore, if you’re able to make recovery enjoyable, you actually increase your chances of committing to a life of sobriety.
- Look for the positives instead of the negatives
Oftentimes, rehab can seem very serious, and it is because you are combating a serious problem. However, it helps to keep in mind that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, a clean and sober life that you will enjoy. Remembering that better times are ahead which are full of more fun than you can imagine, can help keep your spirits lifted.
- Make the decision to be an inspiration
It’s easy to get down on yourself in recovery, but one of the most effective ways to have fun is by encouraging those around you. If you’ve been in a program for a while, you can serve as an inspiration to any newcomers. Sharing stories of success and lessons that were taught to you makes recovery a more satisfying experience for everyone.
- Realize that drugs and alcohol aren’t needed to have fun

If you’ve ever attended a rehab program, you know that addiction is a liar. There are many different ways to have fun without drugs or alcohol, including doing things that your addiction stopped you from enjoying.
