Post-withdrawal can be a challenging time. It’s likely you’ll be exhausted from the emotional and physical efforts of withdrawal and the temptation to escape these negative feelings can be powerful.
It’s important to be headstrong and patient. Do things at your own pace and acknowledge your achievements as you progress through your recovery. Withdrawal symptoms often linger. For days at a time you might feel OK, then find yourself hit out of the blue with intense cravings. Find out as much as you can about what to expect. YSAS workers are always available to offer guidance, support and advice.
Do you want to know about Youth Rehab?
Rehabilitation programs help you adapt to post-withdrawal life without drugs and alcohol. In rehab, you’ll learn to regain control of your life.
YSAS-run residential rehab involves a community-based program where young people participate in therapeutic group sessions with others going through similar challenges and who are taking positive steps towards addressing their substance dependence issues. You’ll learn independent living skills and often engage with the wider community as part of your recovery and reconnection with positive forces.
At rehab, youth workers and health professionals will focus on building relationships and understanding your specific needs to support you in setting goals and looking after yourself. To find out more about Youth Rehab check out Birribi Rehabilitation Community.
