Spring Forward: Overcome Opioid Addiction
Now is the time to take the bold steps towards recovery if you are struggling with opioid dependence or addiction. When you take a walk outside this time of year you see new or renewed life all around you. You have a better outlook when you see that the trees are blooming, flowers are popping up showing vibrant colors, the birds are chirping and the grass looks fresh and green once again. This is a picture of what can happen in your life if you seek treatment; a fresh new start on life. Don’t let opioid abuse or dependence hold you back from enjoying life to its fullest. Life-long recovery is available to you if you get help and are committed to the process.
The Best Time For Recovery Is Now
You don’t have to hit “rock bottom” as they say before you get help. Putting off treatment will delay your recovery or new start on life and worsens your addiction. Now is always the best time for starting recovery, but this time of year is great for many other reasons:
- The busyness of the holidays are over giving you time to focus on your health
- The stress of tax season is over
- The summer months make it easier to focus on healthy habits such as nutrition (fresh fruits and vegetables) and outdoor exercise
- You can enjoy all the summer has to offer being clean and present
- If you choose to further your education, you will be in “good shape” for the fall
How Do I Start Recovery
When you acknowledge that you have a problem with opioids, you need to seek help. You have probably already tried to quit on your own but have been unsuccessful. Opioid drugs and heroin abuse can be treated effectively with Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) combined with counseling, support and individualized recovery plans.
