The first year of recovering from addiction can be particularly challenging. Individuals in early recovery need a substantial amount time to allow their brain, body and spirit to repair after substance abuse. The brain and nervous system can take months to heal from drug use. Recovery requires hard work and change and is a long-term process.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, relapse occurs for approximately 90% of individuals who receive substance abuse treatment that number is cut 50 to percent for after 90 days of sober living. We want it put before the consequences of replase can be tragic. The consequences of relapse can be tragic; therefore, with life literally on the line, it's crucial that recovery occurs using proven methodology. Young adults in early recovery are not well equipped in the decision-making necessary to determine when to discontinue treatment. They are often impatient and possess a false sense of confidence in their ability to remain sober while in treatment.
Research shows that the longer one remains in a supportive, sober environment, the greater their chance of long-term sobriety. Creating new and different healthy patterns to sustain long-term sobriety takes practice and time to develop. We understand that this requires a substantial investment. We also have experienced that neglecting long-term recovery can result in death, jail or more money spent on treatment. At Seaside House, we have a strong commitment to support the young men to achieve and maintain sustainable recovery.
