Far From Finished: The Road to Recovery Part 3: Life in Recovery
Episode 89 : The Road to Recovery Part 3: Life in Recovery
A Far From Finished story: The Road to Recovery follows the story of Dominic, from his past and dealing with addiction, to finding hope and treatment at Desert Hope Treatment Center.
Far From Finished is a video series produced by American Addiction Centers, detailing the lives of those who struggle with addiction, and how they overcome the disease to live a better life in recovery. This first batch of episodes will chronicle Dominic’s journey from drug addiction, to treatment, to recovery and beyond.
Some people find trouble in returning to life after treatment. It’s easy to fall into bad habits by revisiting the same old places, seeing the same people every day. After he completed treatment at Desert Hope, Dominic found that he needed to move north to the city of Columbus, Ohio. The change of scenery and new environment impacted Dominic in a positive way, as he has significant distance from any potentially negative influences in his life.
In this installment, we’ll also see the importance of being involved with the recovery community. Dominic is currently going to school to become a substance abuse counselor, having been inspired to help others through addiction, the same way the folks at Desert Hope helped him. Not only that, but Dominic has developed a strong support network of friends in his new city. It’s easy to forget that community, and the sense of belonging that comes with it, is vital in living a healthy, prosperous life.
Starting fresh is never easy. Starting fresh in recovery can be even more difficult. At American Addiction Centers, we can help you transition to life after treatment by providing you with an expansive alumni support network.
