Part two in this series on nature and recovery will continue to talk about how being outside of the city limits can really affect your addiction treatment and recovery in a positive way. Part one talked about the general healing qualities of being out in nature. Part two is going to discuss how being in nature can help you with new beginnings and giving up control. Legacy Freedom is a premier facility for alcohol and drug rehab in Raleigh NC. Our outpatient treatment center offers only the most fun alternative programs for addiction recovery performed in a holistic manner.
Starting Over - If you want to start over, get out in nature. When you're out in the wilderness, no matter if you're on the coast or in the mountains, you'll see a lot of new beginnings. Every day the cycle of life continues with a sunrise, sunset, and many species get chances at fresh starts daily. Being outdoors for an extended period of time will allow you to fully grasp the complete circle of life and death. You'll gain valuable perspective, and hopefully a sense of stability within your life and where you are on the food chain.
Another aspect of starting over is healing and regeneration. Nature has the ability to heal itself after damage caused by floods, fires, or other storms. Let this ability inspire your own regeneration. Challenge yourself to not be defined by your addiction, but rather your ability to start over with a focus on sobriety.
Giving Up Control - Most patients that suffer from substance abuse problems, also have control issues. To beat addiction, you have to let those control problems go. You have to know that there are some things that are out of your control, and that's OK. It's just a fact of life. For instance, you cannot control nature. You cannot control whether it rains, or shines. Being out in the wild will prove to you that you can only control you, what you do, and how you feel. You cannot do anything about the weather, the animals, or any other aspect of being in the great outdoors. You'll have to focus more so on your behavior, actions, and reactions.
The hard work of getting sober means making that first step. You have to get help to get clean. Next is maintaining and improving on your sobriety survival skills. You'll have to relearn how to deal with life and cope with problems in a positive way, instead of turning back to drugs and alcohol. You have to train your mind,body and soul to beat substance abuse problems, and this will not happen overnight or with cookie cutter treatment plans.
