Slide2:

For people in the middle of recovery, the spectrum of emotions is a very wide one. Sobriety provides many opportunities to grow. A part of that growth is maintaining healthy relationships while also building new ones. However, this is something that should be done carefully, as there are many things to consider. Drug rehabilitation centers in Los Angeles encourage the rebuilding of one’s life. Clients must focus on themselves and not rush into relationships that operate on a deep level of emotion. Clients must build emotional skills so they can deal with the ins and outs of relationships without risking relapse. The key is in character development and not setting a timeline. Setting a timeline can cause people to take certain steps before they are ready.

Relationship Tips:

Relationship Tips The early recovery period can be very hopeful. That feeling of being on cloud nine is unbelievable. However, most people settle into their recovery. Drug rehabilitation centers in Los Angeles put an emphasis on attending meetings and other recovery programs that help maintain sobriety. While in this phase, it can pay off to maintain and pursue platonic relationships that bring value. Here are some tips that can help:

Slide5:

People in recovery are encouraged to wait a year before establishing intimate relationships. This is because the first year of recovery can be plagued with lots of emotions. Drug rehabilitation centers in Los Angeles encourage healthy relationships with family. This can apply to friends, as well. However, it is imperative to make sure that the friends clients spend their time with are not part of their former lives. Take it slow. There is no need to jump into a new relationship. A relationship should take its own course and not be forced. When making new friends or finding an intimate partner, it is important to get to know these individuals on a deep level. This involves letting them in and being honest. There is no need to put up a front because doing so creates stress. Learn from the disputes that happen in healthy relationships. These are learning opportunities. Because the relationship is healthy, the parties are more likely to listen to one another. Friendships are everything because they provide a lot of support. Family members can provide support, as well, but there is something special about friendships. People are more likely to let down their guard in front of their closest friends. Drug rehabilitation centers in Los Angeles encourage friends to get involved in the process.

Know the Boundaries:

Know the Boundaries It is important for people to understand their boundaries. If a relationship starts to interfere with the recovery plan, it may be best to keep a distance. If someone doesn’t support the decision to stay clean, that is not a healthy relationship. Keeping toxic people around can divert focus and make it harder to work on the program. They can interfere with participating in the programs that drug rehabilitation centers in Los Angeles offer. They can also counter progress. It is very important to stick with the people that actively show they care.
