Recovery from substance abuse can be daunting. In active addiction, your whole life revolved around using and abusing substances. You may have lost your job, your marriage is in tatters and life was unbearable. Once you have admitted that there is a problem, you can start the healing process. Often drug interventions by family members and friends are met with denial and anger. But once you have accepted that you need help and have gone to rehab, a whole new world is yours to discover.
One of the common things many addicts and alcoholics struggle with is self care. Taking care of both your physical and mental health is important for your overall well being. Proper nutrition nourishes your body and regular exercise will help you cope with stress and anxiety.
