In this blog series we present you with different ways to cope with anxiety after alcohol detox and addiction recovery treatment.
Anxiety relief is almost impossible if you don’t hold to this strategy. Always remember to use your resources. The thing is, even if you are working your heart out regularly, everyone has to ask for help from time to time. No one can do this life thing on their own. We are just inherently relational beings.
Use Your Resources
Don’t forget that when you’re in rehab you asked for help all the time. It was expected of you. Well sometimes in the outside world you’ll need to ask for help too. Of course you never plan to have a panic attack, or a stint of anxiety so intense that you need help to get through it. But there’s no shame in asking for help. If you sit down sometime when you’re feeling calm and figure out who you have in your support network to ask for help when you need talking off the ledge, you’ll have so much more luck at managing a tough situation. And don’t forget to keep track of what strategies work for you, which of your friends feel safe to ask for help.
Knowing yourself is the key to successful sober living. Top of the list for resources is Therapy, one of the most vital things you can do after your treatment to better understand the points of stress that trigger you. But it’s also really important to understand your triggers and learn the coping tools you need and starting to understand the ways you can effectively relieve stress and anxiety without picking up a glass or a needle. Maybe it seems weird, but knowing yourself and helping others know you can help break down those anxiety ridden moments.
