What Are the Benefits of a Comfortable Environment in Treatment?

People seek comfort. Ask someone if they prefer clothing with a scratchy tag or a soft piece of fabric. Chances are the majority will go with the soft piece of fabric.

People are willing to pay more, wait, or go out of their way to make sure they are comfortable. So why wouldn’t comfort in mental health or substance addiction treatment be important?

What Is Comfort?

Pajamas fresh from the dryer on a cold night, a soft blanket, or quiet elegance can bring someone comfort. The dictionary defines comfort as something that soothes you when you’re distressed or have an affliction.

Seeking and finding comfort is more than being relieved during times of need, however. Luxury, convenience, or happiness are all parts of a whole that make up your definition of comfort. Ultimately, you define what comfort means to you.

How Do I Cope With Discomfort?

You acknowledged that change meant becoming uncomfortable when you decided to change your life. Stepping into the unknown is painful for many. Beginning a new life requires letting go of habits and routines you’re comfortable with. However, staying in harmful behavior patterns produces much more discomfort in the long run.

The decision to start treatment for substance addiction or a mental health disorder requires you to step out of your comfort zone. Your initial hesitancy to share your thoughts or emotions because they’re distressing is normal. Everyone in your group sessions knows what it’s like to be vulnerable.

Can I Find Comfort in Change?

The idea of comfort can motivate a person to achieve a goal or change their life. In this case, the desire for comfort can be a great thing! However, when the thought of discomfort makes a person reluctant to take the steps necessary to complete their plan, it can be counter-productive.

Making changes in your life shakes everything up, and that’s okay. Embrace the work you’re doing to improve yourself. Find a treatment center that meets your mental and physical needs. After all, change is complex, and you deserve to have something that gives you a sense of warmth and security as you undertake your recovery journey.

Furthermore, a comfortable environment improves the connection between your mind and body. Substance addiction or mental health treatment is stressful enough without the added stress of a disagreeable living environment. Be picky. If you can’t live without soft sheets, wholesome meals, or freedom to roam outside, don’t go somewhere that doesn’t provide what you need. Find what makes you feel good.

The idea of comfort is subjective. What one person defines as creature comforts or comfort food may not be what another does.
