New Year’s Resolutions and Addiction

Resolutions and Addiction MFIAccording to Forbes, although 40 percent of Americans set resolutions on January 1, only eight percent actually follow through. When it comes to sobriety, the problem with resolving to overcome addiction at the start of a new year is that failure to follow through can wreak havoc on your confidence – further undermining your ability to get clean. So, instead of setting yourself up for failed resolutions, make 2019 the year you stop making resolutions and start actively seeking help.

Statistics and our staff experiences show that people in rehab are more successful when they rely on others for help.

Program Coordinator Jerry Paredes, at the Murrieta MFI points out the importance of community, “After program completion, the relapse rate is high for people who return to their old way of life. To prevent that, we work together as a team during and after the program to offer clients the tools they need to maintain their sobriety. In Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) like Murrieta, we help them begin the next chapter of their lives, so they don’t just go back to the same triggers they faced during their addiction.”

This type of helps is invaluable. After all; if you could pull yourself up by your bootstraps, wouldn’t you have already done it? Recognizing the need for assistance is an important step on the road to recovery. But it isn’t the end of the journey. It’s the start. At MFI, we use science-based programs, such as the Matrix Model, to provide people in recovery with a structure of support.

Drawing on several research-based methods, this model blends the best modalities into an extremely strong system of recovery. Our clinicians are specially trained in optimizing The Matrix Model for each individual client, creating a highly personalized treatment program for every participant. Various modalities can include behavior modification, 12 step recovery program introduction, cognitive behavioral therapy, and family systems techniques, including the family in group therapy. Helping clients and families understand addictions, while taking steps to create a lifestyle of recovery, are the key principles which make The Matrix Model successful.

Former client, Edward S. recommends MFI for anyone who wants to regain control of their life: “MFI is a great facility if you want to turn your life around. I don’t want to see anyone else go through what I did. If you hang around people who are like you after you recover, you’ll end up doing the same thing you did before. MFI helped me to change not just my habits but my surroundings and my friends. MFI helped me move on with my life. I’m happier now. I’m at peace.”
