One of the most difficult obstacles to overcome in substance abuse treatment is breaking the cycle of addiction. For most people, maintaining sobriety involves cutting the ties with individuals and situations that support substance use and replacing them with new and healthy relationships.
Treatment in one’s home community may enhance the risk of failure if the person cannot cut their ties to people who are using drugs and/or alcohol. In cases where there is a pattern of recurrent relapse and treatment failure, it may be time to consider treatment away from the person’s home community. This may allow the needed time for the person to better understand what triggers their substance abuse and begin utilizing the support system in their treatment community to maintain sobriety.
Brookhaven Hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma can provide a person with the distance they need to begin to separate from their substance use and to establish new behaviors related to living sober. With time away from friends who use drugs or alcohol and other external triggers, the person can consolidate the gains they made in rehabilitation and actively pursue maintaining a substance free lifestyle. Consider treatment at Brookhaven as one of the ways to overcome the cycles of substance abuse and addiction.
