With the temperatures starting to drop outside, the holidays are clearly right around the corner. After Thanksgiving, Christmas will follow closely behind. While this is a time for family members, friends, and other loved ones to get together and catch up, this can also be a challenging time of year for those who are in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Surrounded by memories and alcohol, this can bring on a lot of stress that can be challenging for those in recovery. Fortunately, there is a New Year resolutions list that can help people stay on track during their drug and alcohol rehab.
Getting clean and sober is challenging enough, but recently it’s been documented that a sizable percentage of people with substance abuse issues are also suffering in addition from a mental illness. This dual diagnosis represents as many as 40 percent of those with substance abuse issues, according to a recent study by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). That makes treatment somewhat more challenging since the person and the therapist need to deal with the underlying mental health issue as well as the substance abuse.
