A Better Today Recovery Services understands how overwhelming addiction can be, so we want to do our part to answer some frequently asked questions we receive from the family, friends and loved ones of those who are struggling. Whether it is before they go into substance abuse treatment or returning from treatment, many have questions that will help support them to maintain their sobriety.
We understand that dealing with a loved one who is addicted to drugs or alcohol can be challenging, so we want to offer you support and guidance during this difficult time. The more you know about the recovery process, the more you will help your loved one achieve their personal goals.
As your loved one goes through the process of admitting they have a problem, seeking out treatment, completing treatment, and planning for aftercare, we want to prepare you to be the best support that you can be. The more educated you are about the disease model, triggers to abuse drugs, and relapse the more you will be positive and healthy support.
Key concepts that we cover are the different reasons why addiction begins and takes over their brain, enabling behaviors vs successfully supporting them in their recovery, signs of relapse, the importance of meetings and more. We want to give you a realistic view of addiction and prepare you for what lies ahead in their aftercare plan.
Recovery is a long road and must be maintained throughout the rest of an individual’s life. But with the right support system and an effective aftercare treatment plan, the lifestyle of maintaining their sobriety can be fun and fulfilling.
When it comes to recovery and addiction, there are a lot of questions that can come up, and we want to give you the answers you need. A Better Today Recovery Services covers the signs of relapse and the best course of action that you can take if that happens.
We also cover why relapse happens and why it can quite often be a part of recovery. We hope that we answer the questions that you have and give you the confidence to move forward understanding a little more about what to expect from your loved one on the road to recovery.
