Embarking on the journey of recovery from addiction is not only about breaking free from the strain of substance dependence but also about finding your potential. Spero Recovery goes beyond traditional treatment by encouraging our clients to find the courage to explore their true potential. Within the safe and supportive environment of our residential program, clients are empowered to shed their addiction identities, recognize their capabilities, and pursue their dreams outside of treatment.
Benefits of Finding Your Potential
There are many benefits involved with residential treatment and working towards finding your true potential within this journey. Understanding each of these benefits can help to motivate you to continue your hard work and reach success within your recovery journey.
Confidence and Self-Esteem
You may notice that your self-esteem is extremely low as you begin residential treatment or as you are working to overcome addiction. This is because your neural receptors have been trained to think that you are not capable of accomplishing things without the presence of a substance. As you begin to find success through your recovery journey, you will be able to rebuild your level of self-esteem and confidence in your abilities to overcome your addiction.
Having a boost of confidence is greatly beneficial, as it allows you to stay motivated and on track with your recovery. If you are constantly reinforcing the idea that you are not capable of success, you will be caught in the cycle of addiction and may struggle to break free.
A little bit of confidence can go a long way in overcoming these negative thought processes. Women may be especially high-risk for encountering self-esteem issues, emphasizing the importance of self-awareness for this population, especially if you find yourself facing this situation.
It is important to be aware of your needs and triggers through recovery. By finding your potential and further understanding yourself, you are strengthening your self-awareness. This can be extremely beneficial through the long-term of your recovery, as you will gain the skills to recognize things that may hinder your progress before it gets out of your control.
Finding Your Potential Through Treatment
There are various techniques and practices that you can utilize to help you in finding your potential through residential treatment at Spero Recovery. Many of these practices require you to focus on altering your mindset about what you are capable of. Apply these techniques to help you discover your potential and facilitate success at the end of your residential journey.
Let Go of the Past
As you work through your addiction recovery journey, you may find that you have been holding onto many thought processes, relationships, and other aspects of your lifestyle that are stopping you from moving forward. Throughout addiction, many individuals tend to make their addiction a part of their identity. During your time in residential treatment at Spero Recovery, you can work towards letting go of that negative identity, moving forward from the past, and creating your newfound identity.
It is important to move past this mindset, as your identity associated with your addiction likely leads you to believe that you are not capable of change. This mindset leads to a distorted perception of reality and what you are capable of. As you move through your treatment process, you will find various things that you can overcome to help negate this mindset.
Discover Your Passion
A large part of finding your purpose is to discover what you are passionate about. When dealing with an addiction, your passions and aspirations are often forgotten. Being in residential treatment can help provide you with the opportunity to discover what some of your passions are that you previously had left behind. As you become more acquainted with your authentic self, you may even uncover new passions that you wish to focus on and pursue as you move forward.
Understanding what you are passionate about helps to establish a deeper meaning within your recovery. Your passions may range from anything to playing an instrument, exercising, reading, or volunteering. Whatever passion you discover within yourself, you can use it to help cope with hard times and reinforce that purpose and meaning in your life.
Alter Your Viewpoint
It is inevitable that throughout recovery you will face difficult obstacles. When these obstacles arise, you can either sit back and dwell on them, allowing them to take over your progress, or you can use them as a learning experience. With each difficult obstacle you encounter, try to look for opportunities within those obstacles. For example, if you are struggling with maintaining healthy relationships, this may be an opportunity for you to establish a new healthy support system.
Situations that seem detrimental always have a light at the end of the tunnel. Altering your viewpoint to search for these opportunities can assist you in finding your potential.
