Whitney Houston has decided to extend her treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. She has chosen to hire a life-coach and enter an outpatient program. Taking such action is a massive step towards embracing recovery and putting ones sobriety first.

Whitney is no stranger to the trials and tribulations involving addiction. She has struggled for years. By putting sobriety first, Whitney has increased her chances for success. All to often, when addicts leave treatment, they feel that all the hard work is completed. This is not the case; the journey of recovery has just begun. There is a whole new world that exists for a newly sober individual. They must learn how to engage in day-to-day activities without their drug of choice. What are some methods to use, which will increase the sobriety success rate?

  • Outpatient Treatment
  • Hiring a Life or Recovery Coach
  • Associating yourself with other members of the recovery community
  • Dealing with life in small manageable pieces

Using these tools will offer the recovering addict the support and structure they need. When a celebrity first becomes sober, it is difficult to make changes that are necessary. They need to be surrounded by people that have their recovery interest at heart. The same applies to every day individuals in recovery.

Creating a strong support system gives the recovering addict the resources they need to assist them when times get rough. The path towards embracing a fulfilling recovery will be filled with unexpected twists and turns. Having someone who will hold up a mirror of honesty before you will keep you grounded in reality. The negative thoughts that enter the mind of the recovering person won’t have the power they once had. Once the recovering individual realizes that they are not alone and that people truly love them in a healthy way, the tough times they face won’t cause dire consequences.

Whitney Houston has decided to take back her life. She is embracing recovery and utilizing tools and resources to support her mission to stay sober. She is a great example of showing it’s never too late to start living a great life.
