Whether you completed a 30-, 60-, or 90-day inpatient rehab with Wasatch Crest, the path to recovery continues long after you leave the inpatient program. In fact, most of the work of recovery will continue for weeks, months, and even years afterward. Addiction is a disease, and it is something that is always with you. Sustaining recovery can be as challenging as getting clean to begin with. We are here to help.
Your Support System Is Crucial
Just as you are given advice to avoid old habits, old haunts, and people who drew you into addiction, you should also keep people close to you who can help support your recovery. Friends and family play a crucial role, but so should your rehab center. Wasatch Crest alumni programs includes regular meetings and outdoor adventure activities with other alumni of the program. After any inpatient rehab experience, it’s important to find meetings and a community to connect with and lean on when in need – and everyone has a time of need after treatment! Aftercare is a crucial part of recovery and remains a part of your life indefinitely.
Focus on Self-Care and Self-Improvement
After rehab, the most important step you can take is to find ways to enjoy your life again. This means caring for yourself – from basic needs like food, water, and shelter to higher needs like exploring your desires, career options, and passions. Before addiction, you likely had goals and dreams; now is the time to consider pursuing them again.
Celebrating Your Success
Never forget how far you’ve come. Simply by seeking help and entering rehab, you have taken an enormous and courageous step toward having the life you deserve. Take steps to remain sober:
- Remain completely abstinent.
- Maintain a strong social support system
- Continue with post-recovery rehab support
- Avoid situations that might cause you to drink or do drugs
- Ask for help
- Stay hopeful
