Recovery from drug or alcohol addiction is a life-long process that takes daily dedication. It can be a challenge to maintain sobriety and continue lifestyle changes that promote long-term healing. Whether you completed a treatment program, became sober through the help of a support group, or leaned on friends and family to recover, each day is an opportunity to maintain your commitment to yourself.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA), 20.7 million people aged 12 or older needed treatment for substance use in 2017, but only 4 million received care. Treatment for addiction can be a life-changing experience that sets the stage for a lifetime of health and recovery.
