This entry was posted in Sobriety and tagged , on by .

You are finally ready. Enough is enough. Something has happened in your life to send a giant “S.O.S” signal that you need help seeking treatment for drug or alcohol addiction. Maybe it was losing something important to you or losing everything. Perhaps you just woke up one day and wanted something different for your life. Regardless of the source, the time is here, and you are finally ready to recover. How can you find the tools to be sober?

You Have Everything You Need Inside of You

At The Ho Tai Way – Recovery For Women, we believe you already have the tools inside you to achieve sobriety; we help you use them. This means you have the motivation, willpower, ability to learn, seek support, heal, and more at your disposal innately. You may feel broken, but deep inside of you is that beautiful woman that wants to break the shackles of addiction and live a sober life in recovery.

Becoming sober is absolutely obtainable, and you do not need to do this alone. Finding the treatment program that works for you can help you take the resources you already have within and help you begin your recovery journey.

Removing the Substances From Your Life

The first step to sobriety is stopping. One of the most significant barriers to treatment is detox. This is when you cease using substances, and your body has withdrawal symptoms. While this is certainly never desirable, your experience may not be as bad as you feared with medical supervision at a licensed facility.

The primary concern in detoxification now is that you are as comfortable as possible and safe. Having medical supervision available ensures that your health and safety are monitored during this time to help as your body makes this critical transition.

Learning to Live Without Substances Again

Once your detox process is complete, your road to sobriety begins. Like a toddler learning to walk, you will want to re-learn new ways of looking at yourself, your life, and your values. Getting through each day without substances will be a victory, as you will most likely have usual cravings for your previous substance of choice. Learning to apply what you already have within you and learning new skills to help in your new substance-free life will help you be successful a day at a time, sometimes even minute to minute.

Your treatment will involve learning more about addiction, more about relapse prevention, and coping skills to help you through the difficult moments. You will learn about how to love and care for your body, mind, and spirit as you heal from substance abuse. You can also learn strategies and make plans for maintaining long-term sobriety. You will also learn how and where to find support for now and after treatment so that you do not need to walk this path alone.

Learning to Apply What You Know

There are many things that you already have inside you and already know but are simply not taking advantage of right now. In treatment for addiction, you have the opportunity to apply what you already know to build a successful recovery. Some of these tools that you already have within include:

  • Knowledge of what has not worked in the past
  • Some ideas of what could work in the future
  • Who you are in your relationships and how this hurts you
  • How who you are in your relationships helps you
  • What successes you want to achieve
  • What you have inside to offer yourself and the world
  • Who you are inside
  • Knowing that you are worth it
  • Knowing that you love yourself

Empowering Yourself With What You Have Inside You

Taking into account what you already know and applying it will give you strength and courage to face each new day of sobriety. Addiction may have you feeling alone and broken, but you are neither alone nor broken. There are many women just like you, and all of you are simply preparing to receive the gift of healing in recovery. By healing alongside other women, you will draw strength from learning and growing into recovery together.

Beneath the pain, shame, guilt, and blame, there is a little voice telling you that you are enough, that you are worth seeking a better life for yourself free of drugs and alcohol. Keep listening to that voice. Everything you need to achieve sobriety is already inside you. At The Ho Tai Way – Recovery For Women, we are waiting to help you use everything you already have within.
