One of the ways professionals and patients mark progress in a drug addiction treatment program is through the creation of goals. Goals are a crucial component of recovery, as they provide milestones to look forward to, a vision for the future, and expectations for what is to come. At True Life Center, our team gets to know you on a personal level so that we can help you establish and achieve positive goals during your time in our drug rehab program.
Setting Goals for Recovery in a Drug Addiction Treatment Program
One of the aspects of the holistic care that is a hallmark of True Life Center’s drug rehab program is establishing healthy goals. By working with our team or expert, multidisciplinary practitioners, we are able to make these goals intentional, clear, and achievable. The goals will help you to not only identify a desired end result but also provide you with the smaller steps necessary to achieve that result. Goals may be interpersonal, like mending a broken relationship, practical – like finding a job, or spiritual – like finding purpose and peace.
Maintaining Your Goals
Once goals are established, you and your treatment team can designate specific, manageable action items to steer you toward your desired end result. For example, to successfully find a job, you may need to submit a certain number of applications each week, practice your interview skills, and get a good night’s sleep the night before an important interview. The interpersonal reflection, schedule and habit improvements, and nervous system regulation achieved through our holistic treatment could help with all of those goals.
Keeping Track of Your Goals
There are many ways to keep track of your goals for recovery. Many people find value in writing them down physically. Whether through a simple journal or a day planner, putting pen to paper can help to commit goals to memory and ensure their completion. The practice of writing goals down also provides you with a concrete record to look back on and see what those goals are every day.
For the tech-inclined, a variety of online resources exist to help manage and track goals. From the very simple – like the notes app on your smartphone to the more complex – there are apps designed specifically for that purpose. The key with these resources is to set notifications or reminders to come back often and check in to measure progress.
Another option for keeping yourself accountable for goals in your drug addiction treatment program is to use a buddy system. Or, in the case of True Life Center treatment, patients have many “buddies” as our whole integrative team is here to provide accountability and support. Through the individual psychotherapy, group therapy, and bodywork offered within our drug rehab program, you are certain to form many healthy relationships with others who help you stick to your goals.
