Is sobriety and success in Drug Rehab any different than any other area of life? Are the core habits of all success, in work, relationships, financial, or health any different than the steps to moving past drugs and alcohol? Probably not. To be successful in any area of life the same things are usually present. Structure is usually around when people are doing well. Most successful businesses have structure. All great athletes have it. Most successful marriages have structure and rituals built into them.
Most successful people have a coach in the area they are working on. Business coaches and physical trainers are pretty much the norm for people excelling at what they do. In drug and alcohol treatment structure and coaching are at the core of any good program.
Discipline is also one of the cornerstones of success. Very few people achieve long term health and financial success without regular focused activity in that area. There is no power like the power of doing something every day. At the heart of any drug and alcohol rehab is teaching people to do what they say they are going to do…every day.
This could be why so many people who have struggled with addiction, once they learn how to become sober, go on to achieve so many great things in their lives. Learning to become sober is learning how to become successful.
