What to do after the treatment center program?
One of the things that can help you during your early recovery after you complete your inpatient program is having a plan to manage the different areas of your life that have been adversely affected by your addiction and an understanding of how to manage those life areas as effectively as possible. This is one of the two benefits of having access to an e-learning program that will guide you through that process.
The other benefit is that e-learning programs complement what 12-Step and Smart Recovery groups offer. Those groups tend to focus on abstinence and relapse prevention while e-learning programs provide guidance and support for managing the areas of your life that were adversely affected by your addiction. Being abstinent without having as little distress as possible in your life areas (i.e., health, financial, family, career, social) can contribute to relapse.
The e-learning program that I developed, called Action Based Recovery, provides the guidance and understanding of the components that can help you to consistently maintain your recovery efforts. The three parts of the program (i.e., self-discipline, managing your thoughts and developing microhabits) will help you choose and experience a more fulfilling life, manage any thoughts you have that could interfere with your recovery and develop a plan for having as little distress as possible in your different life areas.
