How to Plan an Amazing Alcohol and Drug-Free Night Out in Delray Beach
As you begin to transition into your life back home in Delray Beach after completing your addiction treatment program at Legacy Healing, you must take the time to plan ahead if you would like to spend a night out on the town. We believe that it’s essential that our clients learn what they need to do to maintain their sobriety in a social setting, which means that finding locations that won’t tempt you to use your substance of choice is critical.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when it comes to planning an alcohol and drug-free night out in Delray Beach:
Surround yourself with trustworthy friends or family members
A good rule of thumb is to schedule an outing that includes friends and family members that will not lead you down the wrong path. Keep in mind that during the course of your addiction treatment program at Legacy Healing, we will provide you with the opportunity to participate in family therapy which will allow you to communicate openly and honestly with your loved ones. This experience will provide your loved ones with a better understanding of the dynamic of your new relationship and standards when you go out with them.
Be conscious of your emotions
It’s important to remember that you will have good days and bad days throughout the course of your recovery. If you find yourself in a situation that makes you feel uncomfortable or tempted to use your substance of choice, you need to have the wherewithal to remove yourself from that situation and express your discomfort. You should also have the confidence to express yourself if a group of friends is planning an outing that isn’t conducive to your new lifestyle.
Throughout your time at Legacy, we will help you develop the tools that you need to remain focused on the goals you have for yourself. This will only help you as you begin to adjust toward being a sober individual.
Now that you know the best way to plan a great drug and alcohol-free night out, you can start looking for venues. Here are some fun areas that you may want to consider in and around the Delray Beach area:
