Getting the most benefit from an inpatient detox treatment really comes down to following a few simple tips. Gallus Detox Center provides inpatient detox treatment to help support your recovery!
Set Realistic Goals
Any substance abuse counselor will tell you that having a recovery plan and setting goals is crucial to successful sobriety. No doubt you have given a lot of thought to how you want the final outcome to be once you are sober and working toward long-term recovery. So, it is important that as you are planning and setting goals that you are realistic and attainable. Starting with lofty goals may sound good, but if you fall short, you run the risk of losing confidence in your ability to stay sober. If your goal is to never use drugs or alcohol again, then focus on being successful in detox, start working on strengthening the relationships that were damaged from your substance abuse and finding mindful clarity.
Instead of focusing on the long-term, put your energy into the present moment. Many find that centering all their attention on the future can be overwhelming. Just concentrate on the task or moment at hand – which is getting sober.
While you are going through inpatient detox treatment, you may experience uncomfortable withdrawal and have thoughts that could have you second-guessing yourself and the reason for seeking help. Be optimistic and try to stay positive. You can do this! Once the withdrawal symptoms pass and you have the drugs and alcohol out of your system, you will be on your way to a new you – a better you!
Following the instructions and rules of the treatment facility will not only help to ensure that your detox is a success, but will also help you to have a positive experience. Before you leave for treatment, read over all the material that the facility gave you. Don’t take items that are considered contraband and follow all the instructions the staff tells you.
Communicate with Loved Ones
Communicating with loved ones during inpatient detox treatment is important because they want to know how you are doing and you will benefit from the emotional support they can give you. Healthy communication is so important that you should probably reconsider going to a facility that isolates you from your loved ones and restricts contact outside the center.
Never Give Up
There are going to be frustrating days while you are in detox, but no matter how difficult it gets, never give up. Part of recovery is addressing certain things in your life that led to your substance abuse or addiction. Getting all those feelings and emotions out in the open you will be ready to move forward.
