Addiction Treatment Program: Visualization
When you attend the Living in Balance portion of the holistic addiction treatment at Promises Austin you will be learning a variety of methods and techniques to assist you in your recovery from an addiction to drugs or alcohol.
One of the techniques that you will be learning about at Promises Austin is the visualization technique. Experienced, caring counselors will help you with this exercise and assist you in thinking about the fact that your life is meaningful and has importance. When people do not feel like there is any meaning to their life, it can be difficult for them to ascertain that their life is actually even worth continuing.For some who have developed an alcohol dependence or drug dependence, their primary purpose in life has become to achieve the feelings that substance abuse commonly provided them. Reliance on this sort of purpose in life can be shallow and ineffective for developing a reason to feel that it is worth it to continue living.
Progressing in Addiction Recovery
Successfully progressing through addiction recovery treatments and living a sober lifestyle with the assistance provided from supportive, recovery professionals and groups can help you to regain or develop a more meaningful sense of what the purpose of your life is for or about.
When you are guided through the visualization techniques provided for those with the disease of addiction, you will be encouraged to spend some time relaxing and focusing in your mind’s idea on an image that you create of yourself.
You will be encouraged to examine the spiritual aspect of yourself while focusing on this mental image that you have created in your mind for the purpose of this visualization exercise.
During this process, you will be asked to analyze what you think your strengths and weaknesses are before then proceeding on to the next part of the visualization technique.
Developing New Goals in Sobriety
At this point, you will then be reflecting for a bit as you attempt to picture yourself spiritually in the ideal way that you would enjoy being. Additionally, you should now consider the goals you want to achieve.
This visualization technique will help you to develop a new, more meaningful purpose in life to replace the purposes you may have had during active substance abuse addiction.Promises Austin caretakers treat you as a unique individual and much more than just an addiction. That’s why our supportive, experienced counselors, who regularly help guests from Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Arizona, California, New York and Florida, will work closely with you to assist you in ending your alcohol dependence or drug dependence.
