Step 1


Go to Treatment

Step 1


Go to Treatment

Seeking help is sometimes a difficult decision to make, but it is worth it. Inpatient drug and alcohol treatment centers exist solely to help those with addictions. They provide structured living, food and the time and tools to work on yourself.  If the rules of the program are applied, and the process is completed, you will leave a changed person. Recovery begins with the understanding that substance abuse is not the cause but, rather, a symptom of the problems you have.

Go to Sober Living/iop

Go to Sober Living/iop

A key aspect of staying sober is the community. While using, we are often alone; left to deal with our problems and our toxic minds. This is a bad position for anyone, especially an addict/alcoholic. When getting sober, it is extremely helpful to be among a group of like-minded individuals working towards the same goal. I remember when I got clean. I spent the first few months with a group of other sober men, all of us staying alive-- together. Before that, I was alone, dying. Aftercare is a very important process and must not be overlooked.

Find and work with a good 12-step sponsor (and attend counseling if necessary)

This can be one of the most overlooked aspects of sobriety. In order to fully comprehend our disease, have a spiritual experience, and fix our lives, we must get a sponsor—someone who has been through what we have and made it out successfully. Therapists and psychiatrists are often instrumental as well. We must have advisors and abide by their suggestions, because we obviously don’t know how to stay sober alone.

Do the steps, be productive and join a fellowship

Do the steps, be productive and join a fellowship

Being productive, showing up on time, developing responsibility, and maintaining commitment are all necessary building blocks to a wonderful life. Getting a job, or attending school, are both productive ways to start this new life. Fellowship, which can conveniently be found in 12-step groups like AA, NA, and CA, is another must for recovery. Many people have achieved lifelong sobriety through a 12-step program. Working with others is the biggest and most suggested portion we offer about getting/staying clean. In order to fully comprehend your disease, have an experience, and fix your life, we must get a sponsor. Therapist and psychiatrists are included with this suggestion as well. We must have advisors and abide by their suggestions, because we do not usually know what’s best.

Spread the message

Step 5


Spread the message

This is crucial. We must give back to others that are similar to us. Doing so not only allows us to repay the gift of sobriety we have been given, but it can also potentially save a life. That is what matters most. It is a very simple process, but we must give away what we have been given.
