Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, you can attend holiday gatherings, but it’s crucial to set boundaries and prioritize your sobriety. Avoid events where you may be tempted to use substances.

Have a plan in place to confidently say no to offers of substances. Enlist the support of a sober friend or sponsor to accompany you to events if needed.

If you relapse, don’t lose hope. Reach out to your support system, and consider seeking professional help immediately to get back on track.

Sharing your recovery journey with trusted loved ones can provide a valuable support network during the holidays. However, it’s a personal decision, and you should do what feels right for you.

True Life Recovery offers comprehensive addiction treatment programs, including therapy, counseling, and support groups tailored to your needs. Contact us for personalized assistance and guidance throughout the holiday season and beyond.
