Explore the options available to you at Lakeview Health addiction treatment. We have many different therapies available at our locations in Florida. Clients that stay engaged and active often have the highest chances for long-term sobriety. Therefore, we urge you to use the following five tips to get the most out of your time in recovery.

Try Lots of Different Therapies

You will naturally experience recovery in your own way, just as every other client does and has since we opened our doors. That’s why we offer so many different therapies based on traditional group and individual sessions and holistic approaches such as yoga, meditation, and experiential therapies. Instead of trying to shoehorn you into a set therapy program, your therapist will develop a treatment plan designed with your interests in needs in mind.

We only ask you to step outside your comfort zone during your time in recovery. For example, meditation might seem boring and uneventful. However, many who try it find it very relaxing and enriching. By slowing down your mind and controlling your breathing, you gain a sense of wellness and self-trust that can assist you on your path to sobriety.

Get Ready to Share Your Feelings 

Clients who get the most out of addiction treatment at Lakeview Health take full advantage of group and individual therapy, otherwise known as talk therapy. Substance use disorders often leave you introverted and unwilling to share your feelings. However, the support you receive in these programs can give you the confidence to maintain drug-free living after recovery.

Addiction services we provide also include music therapy and other expressive modalities that don’t require as much talking. 

Some of our addiction therapy services include the following:

Keep Your Thoughts Positive

Maintaining optimism can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. You may not naturally be the most optimistic person. However, a lot of negativity starts with doubt and internal thoughts that keep us from living our best lives. 

Positivity during detox and rehab can help you pick yourself back up if you stumble. In order to stay focused on not giving up, we show you the importance of keeping things in perspective. Future goals worth working on deserve your mental effort. Learn the importance of visualization and self-talk in our addiction recovery programs. 

Take Your Therapy Sessions Seriously 

Individual and group counseling allows you to open up and be totally honest. No judgment follows you in or out of this safe space. Counselors and other participants will know if you tell a story that makes sense or one that you gave your own spin to. 

To overcome alcohol and drug use disorders, it’s important to face them head-on. Even the ugliest aspects of addiction shrink when you bring them out into the light of day, where you can examine them openly and learn from them.

Remember Why You Came to Addiction Treatment

When cravings hit, or you miss your friends and family, you may forget why you came to addiction treatment. When a tough therapy session leaves you feeling drained, remember to show yourself kindness. Staying engaged can help you focus on your goals and integrate new skills into your life. 

When you ask questions, it helps you remember the key points of a therapy session or class. At Lakeview Health, therapists embrace mindfulness because it helps clients stay fully engaged in the present moment. When you focus on the task or skill at hand, there’s no room for worry, self-doubt, or impatience.
