3 Simple ways to fight drug & alcohol addiction

1. Seek professional help

2. Find healthy ways to cope with stress and emotions

3. Get involved in activities that you enjoy (sports, hobbies, etc.)




1. Seek professional help


It's not always easy to find the right therapist for you. The best way to start is by asking yourself some questions: What type of therapy do I need? What am I looking for in a therapist? What are my goals for therapy? Do I want someone with experience or new in the field? Where am I willing to travel or commute from? Once you have these answers, it will be easier to pinpoint what kind of person and location will work for your needs. Finding the perfect match may take time but it will lead you on a path towards mental health that is tailored just for you!

2. Find healthy ways to cope with stress and emotions


Sometimes we find ourselves in a tough spot, feeling overwhelmed and stressed. Sometimes our emotions can get the better of us.

What are some ways that you cope with stress or difficult emotions? Have you found any strategies for managing your feelings that work well?

If you're interested in finding out more about how to manage difficult emotions, take a look at this blog post where I discuss three healthy coping skills: deep breathing, cognitive restructuring, and journaling.


3. Get involved in activities that you enjoy (sports, hobbies, etc.)


Reach out to supportive people who are not critical, but more unconditional to your needs

Go get pampered at a spa with a nice relaxing massage to relax tense muscles

Go enjoy a good lunch, dinner, brunch with friends

Get in touch with nature through hiking or basking in the sun at a nearby lake
