Life After Drug Rehab

byAlma Abell

If you’ve been dealing with addiction and mental illness (depression, bipolar, etc.) dual diagnosis treatment centers in Los Angeles may be a viable solution for you to battle both of these serious issues. While the intense therapy sessions led by qualified counsellors will give you a good start on battling your addiction, this will be a lifelong process. You will need to use the tools and resources you learned in rehab on a daily basis to help you lead a productive and happy life.

Here are some ways you can deal with everyday life once you’ve completed your time at the rehab center:

Journaling, meditation and prayer

A simple notebook is all you need to journal your innermost thoughts. No one else has to see it and you can work out some of your problems, issues and deepest desires on paper. Meditation and prayer can also be extremely helpful in giving you a sense of peace and self-awareness.

Connect with Family and friends

Your family and friends are your closest circle of influence and it’s important to surround yourself with supportive sources. However, if some of these people are bad influences, then you need to cut yourself off from them. This is not an easy task, but a necessary one.

Find a meaningful purpose

If you have a career or have a clear purpose then put all of your effort into living it each day. If you want something new, something exciting and something that makes you want to get out of bed each morning, then do whatever you need to do to get it. Take some college courses or enroll in an apprenticeship program.

Dual diagnosis treatment centers in Los Angeles can help you move forward and live each day with productivity and purpose. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it.
