You begin recovery in treatment for 30, 60, or 90 days and during that time you’re in a bubble. You’re isolated away from all the triggers of everyday life, and that is what you need. You need to be in isolation while you’re in treatment and before you enter into transitional living.
Timeline of the Recovery Process Before Camelback Recovery
While you’re in treatment you’re working on all of the reasons you drink or do drugs.
At the end of treatment, you feel ready to face life head-on. You don’t want to go to sober living. You don’t want the rules and the accountability, you just want to get back to your normal life. Unfortunately, a graduation certificate from a rehabilitation center doesn’t make anyone immune from alcohol or drugs. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, about 90% of individuals who return home from a treatment facility are likely to have a relapse within four years after they have completed treatment. They need to go to a sober living home.
The problem with going back to your normal life after treatment is that you feel like you’re on top of the world but you haven’t actually practiced sobriety. You’re going back to your old environment, with the old triggers and old habits associated with the place you call home. You’re skipping the integration process and you’re going to go back to where you’ve been programmed to live life in addiction, so there’s really no way to stay clean and sober.
Choosing a sober living home in Arizona
The Integration Process
You need to completely live life differently. You need new eating habits, new sleeping habits, and new exercise and eating habits. You need to learn how to pray, meditate, and do gratitude. You need to develop a foundation or a community of friends and people that you can spend time with who will encourage and support your sobriety, not the opposite. You need an integration process to walk you through these transitional steps.
The Camelback Recovery Integration Process
The Camelback Recovery Integration Process is based upon five pillars. These pillars provide the necessary tools to build new habits and develop new skills during the integration process. This is how you set yourself up for long term sobriety after treatment.
