A major component of addiction treatment is removing clients from the stressors of daily life and providing a fresh, new environment for healing. Self-Reflection is the willingness to learn more about one’s nature and purpose. When a person has been struggling with addiction for so long, they tend to lose their sense of self. The journey to addiction recovery is one full of self-reflection and rediscovery.
Relaxation is a powerful tool used in addiction treatment for individuals to learn how to manage stress in order to prevent relapse. In a relaxed state, individuals are able to think critically and examine their own thoughts, opinions, and motivations in order to remove harmful behaviors. Clients will learn multiple ways to relax and self-reflect, including meditation and physical exercise techniques.
