12 Step Support
12 Step groups can be a crucial part of the social support you need for long-term recovery. Many people find themselves ashamed of their addiction and lifestyle, but 12 Step groups can show you that addiction can affect anyone, from any background. More importantly, 12 Step Groups can show you that everyone can recover. 12 Step Groups demonstrate that the group is more powerful than the individual. Free from judgement, you can learn coping techniques and recovery strategies from others that will help you get through the overwhelming and difficult days we all go through in recovery. When you meet newcomers, you will remember the difficult trials of those first few days and you get the invaluable experience of helping someone else. 12 Step groups are part of keeping your recovery for a lifetime. When you leave treatment, their doors will always be open.
In the majority of instances, any severe symptoms subside within 7 days. However, milder symptoms such as anxiety, headaches, insomnia, and depression may persist for a longer duration. Cravings could potentially linger for months, which underscores the importance of enrolling in a treatment program post-detox. At Pathways Recovery Center, we can assist you in overcoming these cravings and guide you towards liberation from addiction.
