Is Detox Enough? How to Build a Recovery Plan that Works for You

Nothing happens until you’re clean and sober. That’s because it’s impossible to build a new life in recovery if you’re under the influence. But is detox enough to stay off drugs and alcohol for good?

How do you stay clean and sober? Success in recovery depends on having a plan.

First, where and how are you going to detox – medically or at home??

After that, are you going to enter residential treatment or IOP?

Or are you going to try it on your own?

At every stage of recovery, there are important decisions to make. Some are even as small as “Should I go to that party?”

You can try to answer those questions on your own, or you can ask for help – and we’re not talking about Google.
