Life long sobriety It is often said that recovery is a life long process. This is because long after a person has been through recovery, they will still have to deal with psychological triggers. When a person develops an addiction, it is often due to external factors. This could be things like a divorce, losing a job, or loss in the family.

Therefore, when external factors occur again, after addiction treatment, the person will feel preconditioned to pick back up with substance abuse.  In recovery, people spend time working through their emotions so that they do not rely on a substance to overcome difficult situations.

There are several different therapies available to help overcome this life long battle. To find out more about your options, you should speak with a medical professional. If you do not have a doctor you can speak with, you can contact our team at (866) 327-2505. “
