Learning how to manage anxiety in healthy ways is a major part of recovery. At The Treatment Center, it is our responsibility to supply our patients with the tools they need to cope when they walk out of our doors. With anxiety being a leading cause for relapse, learning how to manage this trigger is a major part of the healing process.
Early recovery comes with a lot of anxiety for recovering addicts. After being caught in the grips of addiction, healthy coping mechanisms are destroyed. During this time, anxiety is dealt with in negative ways that can lead to the abuse of alcohol and drugs. At The Healing Center, our holistic therapy services have proven to reduce the anxiety that occurs during early recovery. Learning to control of these emotions is among the many tools we share with our alumni. We realize how crucial it is for our patients to learn how to deal with anxiety in order for them to continue new, healthy lifestyles.
There are millions in the U.S. who struggle with these feelings on a daily basis. At Within: Books Boutique Cafe, we are able to reach our community with the resources to learn about healthy coping mechanisms for these types of issues. On March 21st, we are hosting a book signing with author and speaker H Michael Zal. He will be discussing his book, “Ten Steps to Relieve Anxiety: Refocus, Relax and Enjoy Life.” In this book, Dr. Zal illustrates how to handle anxiety in ten easy to follow steps.
We encourage anyone who struggles with anxiety to attend. We look forward to hosting an event that will provide resources to those who are struggling in the community and help them lead happier, healthier lives.
