The Importance of Self-Care While a Loved One Is in Rehab

Having a loved one that’s in rehab can be complex. While most people are happy that their loved one is receiving help, many complicated emotions can be involved. From broken trust to struggling relations, there are a lot of different things often confronted during this time. In this blog, we’re going to discuss the importance of self-care while a loved one is in rehab.

The Importance of Self-Care

There are a few different reasons why it’s important to prioritize self-care while your loved one is in rehab (and even when they’re not). By prioritizing self-care, you can take care of yourself and ensure you’re getting the personal support you need to continue going.

If you’re not sure how to start self-care practices, you’re not alone. There are many different options, and it can be overwhelming to consider all of them. Let’s go over some different self-care options to consider.

Physical Health

Focusing on your physical health can be a great first step if you’re interested in self-care. From getting exercise to eating healthy, there are many different ways to focus on your physical health. Our staff at Avalon Malibu believes in the importance of focusing on physical health and mental health at the same time.


Taking care of your mental health is important. Therapy can be an extremely beneficial tool. If you want to get individualized support and work through your personal feelings, then therapy can be a great avenue for that.

When it comes to therapy, it’s important to make sure that you find the right practitioner to work with. By doing this, you can feel comfortable and safe working with them and trusting them with your emotions.

Support Groups

Curious about what else you can do? Support groups can be an excellent way to meet people who are going through similar things. Being able to relate to people can be extremely powerful, so consider if joining a support group could be the right choice for you. At Avalon Malibu, we’ve seen the many different benefits that can come from joining a support group.
