Most of the people who successfully leave treatment struggle most with what to do after rehab. How do you rebuild your life? How do you make amends for the past? How do you stay clean and sober moving forward? Life after rehab is all about finding the new you – the you that doesn’t need drugs or alcohol as an emotional crutch or a way to have fun or a way to numb pain. As scary as it might seem, it’s also a very exciting time.
Stay Connected to Your Sponsor and Your Program
Rehab might end, but your relationship with Wasatch Crest Recovery doesn’t end. Wasatch Crest has an active alumni program that serves as a bridge from treatment back into life and twelve-step recovery. Our alumni coordinator assures that every client receives communications and invitations to our alumni meetings and adventure gatherings.
If going back to the home you came from puts you right back in the same situation, one of the most important steps in rebuilding your life should be to secure a safe space in which to rebuild, whether you find a new place to live or choose a transitional sober living home.
Discovering the New You
During this time of transition, you may find that you don’t know what to do with your time. You may have to spend time rediscovering who you are, what you enjoy doing, and what makes you happy. You might need to experiment with different hobbies, from horseback riding to painting to hiking. And you may need to make new friends along the way – friends who are comfortable supporting your sober life and encourage your healthy choices.
