8 Reasons the New Year is the Perfect Time for Detox and Rehab

  1. New Years often means new beginnings for many– New Years is a time to make goals and commitments to resolutions in the new year. Choosing to take back your life again and give yourself the gift of sobriety to ring in the new year will start you off on the right foot for 2022 to achieve the goals you have for yourself in sobriety. 
  2. New Years is a time for self-reflection– As you prepare to say goodbye to the last year, it is common to look back and reflect on what has happened in the last 365 days. Many will think of ways that they would like to enhance their life and where they would like to make improvements. 
  3. Motivation for change is high– New years often brings a renewed sense of determination to start anew and many are determined to achieve their goals. After taking the time to reflect on where you would like to make changes in your life, your ability to focus on what you need to do in order to achieve these goals is precise. 
  4. Resolutions will have a greater chance of being achieved– Becoming sober is often a great resolution but, in some cases, sobriety is often a way to open the doors to achieving other goals for yourself. Whether you want financial stability or the ability to travel, living in sobriety will assist you in achieving these goals. 
  5. You have the ability to take time off– The holidays are often a time where you have time off of work or school. This opens up time where you can take the time you need to focus on getting help for your addiction without having to miss work or not fulfill other commitments. 
  6. Substance use often spikes over the holiday season– Whether you are celebrating the holidays and turning to alcohol or drugs as a way to enjoy with others or if the holidays are a challenge for you and you are turning to substances as a way to cope, the holidays are often a time that substance use increases. Choosing to get help over the holidays and new years will help to avoid furthering your addiction and potential to put yourself in a worse off situation. 
  7. New Years is a time to focus on improving yourself – Many will make resolutions that will enhance your ability to feel connected within your body, mind, and soul. A life in sobriety will help you redefine how you manage your physical, emotional, and spiritual health and support optimal healing in all of these facets. 
  8. Let go of the resentments and shame you have been harboring in the past year– Living with addiction is often paired with deep rooted resentments and shame that can be all consuming. When you choose to get sober, you are able to release those negative feelings and get to enjoy life each day and in each moment.
