If you’re recovering from opiate addiction, know you’re not alone. Opiate addiction has become an

epidemic in this country, with millions suffering every year. By being in recovery, you are already taking a positive stride toward recovery, but you may be afraid of having a relapse. While relapse is common, and nothing to be ashamed of, there are some self-care solutions that may help you avoid it:

Take Care of Your Health 

The point of self-care is to take care of yourself. You need to stay healthy and contribute to your recovery to combat your addiction and avoid relapse. Diet and exercise should be at the core of your health plan, but you need to find ways to relieve stress as well. Try to spend some time outdoors to de-stress and feel better. Even having a hobby can be important to maintaining your health and wellness while being treated for addiction.
