 How does one start on the road to addiction recovery? First, you must acknowledge that you have a problem and come to terms with the fact that you must change your behaviors and habits in order to live your life to the fullest. Next, it is imperative that you finds a proper treatment program that will address your recovery needs. Thirdly, active participation in the treatment program is essential. No treatment program can help if you are not fully committed to the process of recovery. Finally, you must continue to practice the new behaviors and strategies learned during treatment program. Often this may mean a lifelong commitment and participation in a support group-type setting.
