Sober Vacations for Recovering AddictsAlyssa
Summer is in full swing. Have you taken your summer vacation yet?
If you are a recovering addict, the idea of a having a good trip without relapsing can be daunting. All too often people use vacation as an excuse to overindulge, be it food, alcohol, or abnormally adventurous behavior, but this doesn’t have to be you. There are plenty of sober travel adventures out there, and our luxury drug and alcohol rehab in South Florida is helping you find them.
Tips & Ideas for Sober Vacations
Before you even think about looking up flights or where to go, there are a few guidelines you want to make sure you follow so that you can have a successful sober vacation.
The most obvious advice we can give you at Seaside Palm Beach is to avoid both places and people that are big drug triggers for you. These destinations include the all-inclusive resorts where people sit and drink by the beach all day as well as the big city party scenes like Las Vegas or New Orleans. It is also important to surround yourself with the right people. Take a trip with other members from your addiction treatment program in Palm Beach, or go with friends and family members that you know will support your sobriety. With a little research, you may even be able to find sober travel groups.
The Grand Canyon
Head to Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. If you underwent holistic addiction treatment, you understand the importance of exercise for a comprehensive recovery. This area of the United States is filled with breathtaking landscapes and hiking trails that can give you the same euphoria as drugs but without the negative side effects. Hiking every day will certainly give you the exercise you need and continue to make your body stronger.
Yoga & Meditation in Thailand
If you struggled with your mental health during your time in treatment, you will want to check in with yourself and practice what you learned during your recovery program. Yoga and meditation are both great ways to practice mindfulness and mental health care.
For some, addiction treatment reconnects them with their faith. If you found strength in God and your religion during your program, why not continue this outside of treatment? You should be able to find plenty of sober vacations to choose from through church or other like-minded individual groups.
Don’t waste your holistic alcohol rehab. With such a unique and different culture from that of the United States, Morocco is a great place to forget about the fact that you aren’t drinking. Even better, alcohol isn’t even that readily available there. Instead, throw yourself into their culture with their food, history, and markets.
