New Year’s Eve is an interesting time in the field of addiction medicine. This a time when men and women in recovery have to go above and beyond to protect their program. It’s also a time when many people decide to reach out for assistance with the hope of adopting a program of addiction recovery.
At Hemet Valley Recovery Center & Sage Retreat, we hope that you were able to maintain your sobriety through Christmas. Doing so is no easy feat, but if you stuck to your recovery routine, then you were probably able to stay on track. If so, please acknowledge your achievement, especially if you are in your first year of recovery.
Still, New Year’s Eve is a real test for individuals committed to leading a lifestyle free from drugs and alcohol. Around every corner, one can encounter a person, place, or thing that could trigger a relapse. It’s vitally important to stick close to your support network in the coming days to avoid encountering risky situations.
If you found a formula for abstaining during Christmas, then apply it to the impending holiday. Attend your regular meetings, look for opportunities to be of service, and do not deviate from the course you take from one day to the next.
Hopefully, you have already created a plan for navigating New Year’s Eve without placing your recovery at risk. Just like Christmas, meetings of recovery will be commencing around the clock on December 31st. Attend as many meetings as necessary to ensure that your sobriety is not compromised. Ask your peers how they plan to bring in the new year; one of the members of your support group is probably hosting a gathering, and your presence is welcomed.
