Surrounding yourself with the right group of people is very important as you begin to consider whether treatment may be right for you. Who we choose to spend our time with has a large impact on our thoughts and our actions. If we choose to spend our time with those committing risky behaviors it may impact whether we complete those actions as well. Taking some time to analyze those around you can make a big impact on your recovery journey.

They Bring Out Your Positive Qualities

If we are constantly around people who are negative, try to belittle us, embarrass us, or simply put us down, it will definitely have an impact on our self-esteem and our worth. To lead a positive life, it is important to surround yourself with positive, uplifting people. If you are journeying in a direction that is different than those you are surrounding yourself with, you may have a more difficult journey. Sometimes the people we spend the most time with can actually not be the best for us. Learning to understand who is supporting you and helping you with your future goals is key. Just because someone has been in your life a long time does not mean they are healthy for you. 

You Can Count on Them

Everyone has tough days. When you add in mental health issues or addictions, you may find yourself having many challenging days as you begin your recovery journey. Surround yourself with people that you can always count on–people who you can call at 3 a.m. when you are struggling and need someone to talk to. The best support system is made up of people who would never judge you, criticize you, or belittle you. Everyone struggles and everyone needs support sometimes. 


Finding the right support system can make a huge impact on your recovery journey. These individuals are those who are there for you at all times, reminding you how great you are doing, and of your goals when you forget. The right support will bring out your best and encourage you each step of the way. Working with a professional can help you determine who is best for you. Sometimes we may need to help to fully understand why someone may not be the best choice to support us. Here at The Guest House, we have great professionals ready to help you on your recovery journey. Call us to learn more at (855) 483-7800.
