Recovery During the Holidays

We at Whiteside Manor hope that you are a having a wonderful Christmas day and have a Happy New Year. We recognize that, for some, the holidays can be especially difficult. It is of the utmost importance that you remain vigilant about your recovery during the holidays. Go to meetings and keep your phone handy, you may need it; not only for yourself, but to help others that may be struggling.

Listed below are some helpful reminders:

Meetings:

Throughout the day there are 12-step meetings taking place every hour on the hour. If you are having a hard time or you would like to be there for others, get yourself to a meeting.

Support:

Those in recovery understand the importance of a support network; recovery only works if we do it together. Do not shy from picking up the phone if you are struggling. It is safe to say that someone will answer.

Remember:

It is crucial that you keep in mind what you have been through, and what it took to get where you are today. Be grateful for the people in your life and do not hesitate to let them know that you are there for them and they are important to you.

Routine:

Stray from out of the ordinary behavior and stick to your normal routine as much as possible. Sticking to your recovery patterns is essential to getting through difficult times.
