The Addiction Brain Re-Train at Through The Archway

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought on unprecedented times. Despite that, Through The Archway still remains open and helping clients achieve permanent recovery. Many are still quarantining and living a rearchitected daily routine. There are many who aren’t living with family. This can mean a lot of alone time, which gives more time to think and reflect. 

Addiction is a disease. It’s not something that can be walked away from and never faced again. Triggers can present themselves throughout the day without warning. It’s especially difficult if substances have been part of the routine for a long time. It can be hard to remember a time when the true self was there.

Relapsing is easier than staying sober. This is why re-training the brain is so important. There are many triggers along the way and with everything going it doesn’t make avoiding relapse any easier. Here are some tips:

  1. Leave the past in the past. Don’t beat up yourself! The only way to succeed is to go through setbacks. Setbacks are normal and common on the road to recovery. Focus on the now and go forth and conquer!
  2. Stay fit. The body and mind work together keeping everything balanced and healthy. Nurture the body by giving it whole foods and physical activity.
  3. Keep a journal. Create a recovery journal and record the inner voice. It will help bring clarity to all of the times that were bad*** and the triggers experienced in the past. 
  4. Keep in touch. Remember to stay connected with the people who support the sobriety journey. Don’t forget to go to virtual meetings. They are still going on despite the pandemic.
