While drug and alcohol treatment centers will help you kick that bad habit, the statistics on recovering patients relapsing are grim. • This is not the fault of the institutional facilities, of course, but once they are out of the protective cocoon of the center, the uphill battle just begins. • The most common reason is that they go back to the same environment and exposed to the same triggers that pushed them to addiction in the first place. • This is why a life coach is a crucial element to recovery.
What is a Life Coach? • The life coach is somebody who can help somebody who had just come out of the drug and alcohol treatment center. • He may come from the facility itself, or the facility may recommend you to an independent counselor. • It's a two-way process. • The life coach can't hope to succeed unless you embrace the whole concept and follow the predetermined course of action.
Benefits of Using a Life Coach • Sense of direction to your journey • The biggest adjustment once you are out there is knowing that the world has continued moving without you. • That’s a painful hit to your already fragile ego. • A life coach will help steer you in the right direction one step at a time.
2. Help draft a wellness plan • The recovery process is going to be long and tedious. • That’s the reason you need a focused strategy on how to go about it. • The wellness plan includes the type of support group you need, physical and social activities, down to the type of food you put in your body.
3. Source of strength • The counselor or life coach is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week • Some even invite the recovering patient in their home or move into the patient's house. • More than to monitor, the main purpose is to just be there.
4. Biggest Supporter • If you are still recovering, extreme mood swings should be expected. • There would be moments when you feel the world is conspiring against you. • It’s good to know that you have the life coach who will make you feel good about yourself again.
5. Answers all your questions • Even if you feel safe there, you can’t go back to drug and alcohol treatment centers if you are confused. • The life coach can answer all your nagging questions, even the most basic as “Should I tell my co-workers that I’m a recovering addict?” • For the most part, the counselor will help you arrive at a decision you are most comfortable with.
