Sobriety is one of the most important aspects in embracing a smooth and successful reentry.
Acknowledging a need, finding treatment, is empowerment for change. Many don't understand that their substance misuse follows, maybe even increases, during incarceration and continues after release. And quite often, the transition process from incarceration to community triggers a relapse.
A vital element towards successful reintegration is to pinpoint treatment programs and support groups that can help you maintain sobriety. Walking alone only entices substance misuse. The choice is yours, fellowship is available through many treatment options.
