TIPS & TECHNIQUES
Most addicts who are in recovery understand that drug and alcohol addiction is a disease, not a morale failing or a weakness of willpower or a lack in ability to just say ‘no’. Addiction cannot be cured, but it can be managed. During your treatment at Tellurian, our Clinical Team will teach you some tips and techniques that will work best for you.
It’s important that you make your recovery a priority, put yourself first and stay in touch with your Counselor at Tellurian who knows you and can provide you with comprehensive treatment options and sound advise throughout your recovery.
Tellurian holds Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings on Sunday nights and a Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meeting on Wednesday nights. Please contact your Tellurian counselor to sign up or to get more information.
Whatever you do, never give up!!! Regardless of challenges or obstacles you will face, do not give up or give in. Take advantage of Tellurian’s support system and the support of your family and friends to keep going in the face of temptation and challenging days.
Relaxation techniques refer to a wide range of different activities and practices. Some of these techniques have been specifically designed to promote relaxation while others have relaxation as a side-effect. All of these practices have the effect of releasing tension from the body, and this is a desirable outcome because it provides many physical and mental health benefits.
Self Esteem Builders
Individuals who suffer from low self-esteem struggle to find happiness away from their addiction. This is because their lack of self-worth will prevent them from putting any right effort into improving their life. Often times, deep down addicts do not feel that they are worth such effort.
