As more and more passionate voices join the sober curious movement, more and more people have started to consider if sobriety would be the better option for them as well. For some, alcohol abuse may be part of alcohol use disorder, the official name for alcohol addiction. The motivation to sober up quickly increases when alcohol is causing a negative impact on your life. Thankfully, treatment for alcoholism has come a long way over the decades, and sobriety is easier to achieve than ever before.
Find Your Sobriety Through Recovery
Sobriety can refer to abstaining from any outside substance, but typically refers to drug and alcohol use. The prevalence of alcohol abuse specifically has grown over the years, with more than 25% of Americans 18 and older reporting binge drinking in the last month. This number becomes even more concerning when you take into account how long it can take for your mind and body to fully heal from the negative changes caused by alcohol.
Recovery gives you the time you need to overcome these hurdles, allowing you to grow and heal from each one. Even lapses in sobriety are opportunities to learn more about yourself and the triggers that lead to addictive behaviors. These can range from underlying mental illness, social anxiety, or stress within the home or workspace. No matter what the cause is, turning to alcohol as a coping mechanism is never the solution.
Create Your Own Sober Life
Starting treatment for alcohol abuse is the first step towards a happier, healthier lifestyle that can’t be achieved when your body is constantly at war with alcohol. During treatment at America’s Rehab Campus, you’ll develop the coping mechanisms and skills needed to traverse life without the fear of slipping back into your old habits and routines. Your new outlook will help you realize how heavily alcohol changed how you made decisions in the past, and gives you a chance to correct what you can.
Part of the next leg of your journey will be finding sober friends and activities to get out and enjoy! ARC alumni often meet new friends during treatment to create a group of like-minded individuals who want to still go out and have fun without the burden of alcohol. The accountability and support of sober friends will help you transition from treatment back to your regular day-to-day as you adjust to sobriety. For more help, ARC has a network of relapse prevention specialists you can call on as needed.
