Embracing Recovery

Embracing your recovery can be difficult if you are just starting out. It can be even harder to accept a new normal life without substances. It isn’t impossible, though.

The Guest House can give you the tools to embrace your recovery and keep moving forward. Check out how you can embrace your recovery below.

Everyone’s Story Starts Before Treatment

The Guest House knows that everyone’s story starts before treatment. We know that everyone has their own unique experiences and that they react differently to different treatment methods. This is why we offer a personalized approach to the treatment of self-defeating issues and traumatic experiences.

Everyone has a complex journey. We want to help you become a part of your journey and a reason for your success. When you come to us, you may not be embracing your recovery yet. That’s okay. Once you begin to see progress, you will look forward to waking up each morning to embrace your recovery.

Loving the New You

Your new you, the you without self-defeating coping mechanisms, will be a hard one to navigate at first. We believe that self-destructive behaviors and mental health disorders are often formed as coping mechanisms in reaction to trauma or other life events.

Substance use and mental illnesses can be a result of deep pain that you have lived through. Once we help you unravel the root of your unhealthy coping mechanisms, we will give you healthy coping mechanisms to put in their place. Your life without your usual coping mechanisms may feel weird at first, but soon you will learn to love the new you.

The Benefits of Mindfulness

Practicing mindfulness in your recovery is key. Mindfulness can help teach you how to quiet the negative self-talk you may be dealing with, and how you can replace those negative thoughts with more positive ones. In doing this, you can stop the negative thoughts and feelings in their tracks so that you do not end up acting on them and sabotaging your recovery.

Mindfulness, when done in a group setting, is also helpful because you learn that other people are going through the same types of things you are going through. You aren’t alone, and sometimes that sentiment can get lost if you’re struggling to find your way. Once you get used to practicing mindfulness, you can implement it in your daily life. Mindfulness isn’t only helpful when you are feeling poorly.

You can use mindfulness all of the time to help you be more present in your daily activities. You can also use mindfulness to help you be appreciative of what is going right in your life because it’s good to focus on the positives when you can. Although mindfulness isn’t a quick fix, it’s a great tool to have in your back pocket when you’re feeling down and need a pick-me-up, but it’s even better when you use it daily.
