Getting Sober Away From Home

Are you wondering if you should get sober out-of-state? Some people choose to get sober in another state or country because they feel like they want to “get away” from it all. There’s nothing wrong with that! Being able to disconnect from the world where you used to use drugs or alcohol is an essential part of the process. You’re powerless over people, places, and things. You must leave people and things connected to your addiction behind and begin a new way of life.

Getting Sober Away From Home

Are you considering treatment in another city, state, or country? Choosing a treatment center that meets your needs is important. Many people feel like the setting of rehab is vital to their future well-being.

Getting sober away from home may make it easier to focus on the here-and-now instead of being distracted by things nearby. You will also be able to connect with peers from different backgrounds and make new friendships for life.

Sometimes you will find that you have to choose a location closer to home. Of course, you may have budget constraints or need some of your stay paid by insurance. Other people simply want to spend the money they have on a place with a proven track record that can help their loved one truly regain control of his or her life.

Why Amenities Matter

Not every treatment center can offer more than just detox and therapy. While this is the bare minimum, many people find themselves overwhelmed when they first get sober. Coping tools help people new to recovery relax and begin to rediscover themselves. (We offer various things to make our clients more comfortable, such as yoga, meditation, and massage.)

New coping pills are important to your future recovery. Make sure that the place that you get sober offers therapy that focuses on coping methods. Many people find that experiential therapy, such as hiking or horse riding, can build trust and self-esteem, especially if you have experienced trauma in your life.

Getting sober away from home can help you feel like you're in a safe place. You can focus on taking care of yourself and your needs as you being to change your life.

Recovery Is About Change

Getting sober is about changing your life and leaving the world of drugs behind. It can seem incredibly difficult or even impossible when you get sober.
