Is it just a luxury?
No. It is exceptionally hard to recover whilst still in the vicinity of the environment that is causing you distress or contributing to substance abuse.
Traveling for treatment significantly increases the prospect of a successful and sustainable outcome. And the further away the better:
- Often the people, places and things that surround you in your home environment exacerbate stress and are significant triggers for depression, anxiety and substance abuse. This environment can be your home, your office, your city or even your country.
- The mere act of travel for recovery and health is a literal affirmation of your desire to change. It cements your commitment, turning the contemplation of recovery into action.
- Travel, for any reason, generates optimism and enthusiasm for new possibilities. A complete scenic change, a different culture and new faces inherently generate hope and renew enthusiasm for life.
- To remove yourself from your home base, even for a short while, will relieve stress and simultaneously provide hope. Imagine the feeling of relief as the plane takes off, leaving all your troubles behind and the sense of excitement and optimism with the knowledge that you are on your way to a new, happy and healthy life.
