Loneliness in recovery is something that many people struggle with. Especially if your friends and family aren’t supportive of your recovery, it can be especially challenging to cope. In this blog, we’re going to discuss some ways that you can deal with loneliness when you’re in recovery from substance use.
Coping With Loneliness in Recovery
There are a few things that you can do to cope with loneliness in recovery. Let’s go over some of our favorite strategies. As always, it’s important to think about your individual situation and what makes the most sense for you. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box!
At Avalon Malibu, we provide a variety of different support groups. We’ve seen the many different benefits that can come from individuals participating in support groups, so consider if this could be the right choice for you. By joining the right support group, you can get to know people who are in a similar situation. This can bring a strong sense of community to your life and it can encourage your recovery. If you’re wanting to meet other people who are sober, then a support group can be the perfect place to do so.
Another thing that we believe strongly in at Avalon Malibu is journaling. Through journaling, you can connect with yourself and explore your feelings further. If you’re wanting to get some guidance about journaling, our staff would love to help you. We provide guided journaling as one of our services at Avalon Malibu, so reach out to us if this is something that you’re interested in exploring.
Making New Friends
Many people find that making new friends during recovery is essential. Especially if your current friends aren’t sober, making new friends can be incredibly important. Finding friends who are also sober can not only help with loneliness but also encourage your recovery.
