Make Sobriety Your New Year’s Resolution

The holidays have come and gone, and you may now be realizing that you overindulged. Not on cookies or pumpkin pie, but on your substance of choice. Throughout all the parties and the social gatherings, you never saw it as a problem to have just one more drink or sneak away to take a pill. However, now that a new year is approaching, you want to make a change in your life. Sobriety can be that change.

The New Year is a clean slate for everyone. People resolve to exercise more often, give up soda or junk food or even sign off of social media.  It is a time when people evaluate their habits and choices and decide if they want to make a change in their lives. If you want to evaluate your drug or alcohol use, ask yourself these simple questions:

  • Do you drink or use drugs to escape from worries or troubles?
  • Do you drink or use drugs alone?
  • Have you ever been in a hospital or institution as a result of drinking or drug use?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it is a warning that you may have a substance use disorder.

Becoming sober is a very difficult resolution to make. It requires support from those around you and healthcare professionals. You can start your New Year’s resolution of sobriety today with Seabrook. Call us at 800.761.7575 for information.
