When leaving treatment, or first trying to establish sobriety, creating a comprehensive recovery plan is a way to develop positive coping mechanisms, utilize new skills, and monitor goal achievement. Learn more.
What should be included in the recovery plan?
- Goal-setting: a way to establish what goals you want to achieve and how can you measure your achievement.
- Design a way to reach the goals, short or long-term.
- Incorporate activities throughout the day that would be beneficial to recovery.
- Recognize triggers and feelings to design a plan of action to maintain sobriety.
