Members for Life Program: Ongoing Recovery Support

Your care doesn’t end after you complete your treatment program at Sana Lake. When you walk through our doors, you become a Member for Life. As you successfully transition to the next step in your recovery, you have many pathways to stay connected to support and community. 

Stay Connected Long After Rehab

Continuing care is built into your recovery plan from day one. You have access at Sana Lake to any extended care you need after your main treatment program ends – sober living, family counseling, weekly therapy or medications like anticravings, antidepressants or antianxities. And, even after extended care is over, you have a community of other alumni and peer coaches to turn to on a regular basis.

            Life After Addiction Treatment FAQs

            When treatment ends, it usually brings a mix of emotions. You might feel happy to be done but also anxious about maintaining sobriety.  If you choose Sana Lake for treatment, you have the support you need long after you finish treatment. 

            In the first few weeks after treatment, you might feel a mix of emotions, from hope to anxiety. It’s important to establish a routine to provide structure and stability.

            Focus on:

            • Attending follow-up appointments and support group meetings
            • Setting small, achievable goals
            • Staying connected with your recovery network Emotions may fluctuate, but staying engaged with your support system can help you navigate this critical period.

            You can do this!

            Staying motivated to remain sober involves setting clear goals and celebrating small victories. Surround yourself with positive influences and engage in activities that promote well-being.

            Some strategies include:

            • Creating a vision board of your goals
            • Keeping a journal to track your progress and feelings
            • Joining a new hobby or exercise routine

            Remember, motivation can ebb and flow, so lean on your support network when you need encouragement.

            Experiencing cravings is normal, so it’s important to have a plan to manage them.

            When cravings hit:

            • Distract yourself with activities like exercise, reading or hobbies
            • Reach out to a support person or attend a meeting
            • Practice deep breathing or meditation to reduce stress Cravings typically pass, and having strategies in place can help you overcome them without relapse.

            You should also talk it over with your support network. Further treatment could help, including anti-craving medications like a non-habit-forming monthly Vivitrol injection.

            Rebuilding trust takes time and consistent effort. Be open and honest about your progress and listen to their concerns with an open mind.

            Steps to rebuild trust include:

            • Keeping your promises and being reliable
            • Communicating openly about your recovery
            • Apologizing and making amends when necessary

            Rebuilding trust is a process and showing consistent positive changes will help mend relationships with time.

            Navigating social situations where substances are present requires preparation.

            Consider these strategies:

            • Bring a sober friend for support
            • Have an exit plan if you feel uncomfortable
            • Practice saying no confidently

            It’s okay to avoid certain events if you feel they could jeopardize your sobriety. Your health and well-being come first.

            Recognizing when to seek additional help is crucial.

            Signs include:

            • Persistent cravings or thoughts about using
            • Isolation or withdrawal from support networks
            • Increased stress or inability to cope with daily life

            If you notice these signs, reach out to your Members 4 Life coach or support group. Seeking help early can prevent relapse and keep you on the path to recovery. It could be as simple as adding an
            anticraving medication or going to weekly therapy sessions as an outlet.
