September is National Recovery Month, making this an opportune time to take stock of your situation and consider if your habits have become substance abuse disorders. We are too often blindsided by habit formation. Our ability to quickly form new habits can be positive but can also get us in serious trouble. It’s possible to create a habit in just two weeks.
At Fresh Start Recovery Center, we encourage you to be your best self. If a substance abuse disorder is disrupting your life, reach out at 833.625.0398 to speak with a trained professional about addiction recovery and how to get your life back on track. It’s never too late to make a change.
Are You in a Position to Help Others?
If you are already on a positive path in your sober life, consider sharing your story to help inspire others. You can post on social media or type up a blog post. Social media can be a terrific way to share your recovery story and inform others about how addiction can affect your life. If you feel comfortable and safe sharing your story on social media, this is a positive way you can participate in National Recovery Month.
Another option is to set aside time for friends and loved ones. Addiction recovery can be hard to talk about but being open to discussing these issues is a great way to increase awareness and reduce addiction stigma. If you have the opportunity, consider reaching out to your friends and loved ones about your experience with addiction. You can then help them understand why it is essential our society has a better understanding of how addiction impacts someone’s life and how it can help people find the addiction treatment programs they need.
Get Serious About Your Health This National Recovery Month
It’s important to know that it’s ok not to be ok. Then comes the hard work for choosing to get better. Signs of a substance use disorder may include:
- Difficulty reducing or stopping use of a substance
- Uncontrollable cravings or loss of control
- Worsened physical and/or mental health conditions
- Trouble coping with ordinary tasks without substance use
- Missing regularly scheduled activities
- Difficulty maintaining positive relationships with others
Tragically, in the past, alcohol addiction and substance abuse disorders have been unfairly stigmatized due to a personal flaw or lack of moral conviction. Today, medical professionals view addiction as a long-term illness. Addiction is not so different from a chronic condition like asthma or diabetes. Fortunately, like asthma and diabetes, addiction is treatable.
