4 Reasons Why Recovery Is Right For You

It can be difficult to make the decision to go to treatment and get help. Whether you feel intimidated, nervous or not quite ready to take the leap into sobriety – it’s okay. Many have felt the same way and you’re not alone.

At Common Ground, we’re meeting you where you are, whether you’re nervous or ready or somewhere in between.

We believe that recovery is right for you. Recovery is powerful, healing and transformative. It doesn’t matter where you were in your past, because recovery is about where you’re headed, starting with today. Said best by Carl Bard: “Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”

Here’s why we believe recovery is right for you:

  1. You’ll be healthier.
    It’s no surprise that addiction takes a toll on your health. Addiction impacts your heart, brain, and virtually all systems in the body. When you cut out drugs and alcohol and commit to staying sober, recovery not only happens to your soul, but to your body as well.
  2. You’ll have more time for the things you love.
    Addiction takes time, money and brain space. When you get sober and embrace recovery, it means you’ll have more time to commit to your hobbies. Whether you love music, spending time with friends and family, or if you’re out to find new hobbies you haven’t tried yet, when you cut out drugs and alcohol, you’ll have more time for the things that fill you up.
  3. You’ll discover who you really are.
    In recovery, addiction is set aside and your mind has the energy and space to discover who you are – or get back to who you were before addiction took over. This is valuable and will help form the rest of your life. You’re valuable and deserve your best life possible. Recovery will help you discover your value and will give you the tools to pursue your dreams.
  4. You’ll be free in a new way.
    In more ways than one, a weight will be lifted from your shoulders. No more running or hiding, and no more time spent accommodating drinking or drug use. Your time is yours, your life is yours, and you’ll be free to pursue your best life without the overarching shadow of addiction. What a breath of fresh air!

No matter what your past looks like, recovery is right for your future. But you don’t have to do it all today. By taking it one day at a time, by committing yourself day by day to the process, you will soon find that recovery is just what you’ve been looking for.

In recovery, there’s community, hope and a new life waiting for you. And no matter where you are, Common Ground is here to support you.
