What Is Addiction Recovery?
Addiction recovery is a multifaceted process, targeting the physical and psychological wellness of one’s life. People pursuing recovery are empowered to reach their full potential through physical and emotional sobriety. Oftentimes, addicts will seek treatment for addiction at a rehab or designated treatment facility; once treatment is completed, additional support and continuous engagement in their recovery is necessary to attain long-term sobriety.
A fairly common misconception regarding recovery is that a “finish line” is reached once a treatment program is completed or total abstinence is achieved. However, most people who relapse do so within the first 90 days of treatment. Therefore, recovering addicts need multiple resources of support in order to thrive in sobriety.
