How Doubt Uproots Sobriety


Addiction recovery can be a tough battle one faces when negative thoughts are constantly at the forefront of an addict’s mind.

This is a challenging time because while an individual truly wants to heal, they are also conflicted with drug cravings and negative influences flooding their thoughts and behaviors. Oftentimes, people turn to substance abuse as a way to self-medicate the feelings of doubt and depression. Addiction recovery will help you get rid of any doubt that is ultimately blocking your chances of sobriety. Faith-based treatment programs can help individuals change negative thought patterns, as well as strengthen their connection with God on a spiritual level.

Self-Doubt from Outside Factors

Any negative outside influences such as tension and arguments at home can lead to self-doubt in addiction recovery. People who lack ongoing love and support during the addiction recovery stages will have a difficult time staying optimistic about their journey. Discouragement and fighting can cause self-doubt, which then leads to relapse. Faith-based treatment allows individuals to get to the root causes and underlying issues of why substance abuse is present, and you learn the skills to change unhealthy thought patterns. The everyday struggles of life can get in the way of your sobriety if you don’t have the tools to properly manage them.

Poor self-esteem and uncertainty often crowd an addict’s thoughts and feelings. These internal struggles can be worked through during effective treatment with a therapist. Self-doubt can truly tear a person apart and leave them back in the vicious cycle of addiction. Your internal demons can go away during treatment, and you can learn how to live a happy and healthy lifestyle in recovery.
