Overview

There are different types of support that an individual recovered from addiction after rehabilitation can continue to have and benefit from having access to. These include –
Individual therapy. Addiction is not just a chemical dependence, but is highly associated with a person’s lifestyle that may include triggers and stress that lead a person to abuse drugs. Therapists can help the individual uncover the underlying issues that make them more likely to abuse drugs.
Medical check-ups. Having engaged in drug abuse can lead to the development of various side effects such as breathing and heart issues, wounds, sleeping problems, weight loss or gain, twitching problems, etc. Thus, it is important to consult medical professionals from time-to-time for medical check-ups.
Medications. Medications can help the individual cope with any residual withdrawal symptoms and help maintain sobriety.
Support groups. The 12-step programs help an individual stay on track of maintaining their recovering as the regular group discussions keep them accountable for their addiction.

There are various lifestyle changes incorporating which, post rehabilitation, the individual can help themselves in maintaining their sobriety, such as –
Developing a routine. Developing a routine and incorporating enjoyable and meaningful activities in it such as going to classes, volunteering, engaging in learning a new foreign language or a musical instrument, etc. helps the individual cope with feelings of loneliness, boredom, or helplessness that going back to their normal lifestyle post-rehab can trigger in them.
Exercising and practicing mindfulness. Exercising and mindfulness practices support good mental health. Mindfulness practices can help the person become aware of and manage their cravings, thus helping sustain recovery.
Developing new friendships. The individual may want to develop new friendships with sober people as their old friends may be addiction partners.
