Some individuals successfully finish a rehab program and then… end up in rehab again. Out the door for a while, then right back in. This is obviously not the goal for an individual trying to be successful in their sobriety.

Every relapse bringing you back through that door represents a blow to one’s confidence, and can be physically dangerous. This can cause a sense of hopelessness in an individual. Instead, they should be feeling like they have a new lease on life.

At Tranquil Shores, we take the approach that many factors leading to your addiction can be addressed and clinically treated. In addition, when you leave Tranquil Shores we want to know that you are aware of how to live daily life on your own, without the support of being in a treatment center.

Part of Tranquil Shores’ treatment program is learning daily life skills that goes along with living a sober, healthy life. Getting up and showering and making yourself breakfast is an example. Throwing in a load of laundry is another. Before getting sober it is very possible you were not doing these things. Practicing and applying these life skills, chances are so much more in your favor that once you’ve reclaimed your life, you’ll be able to firmly hold onto it.
